GEICO Pulls Ads from Glenn Beck’s Fox News Show

In addition to Lawyers.com (owned by LexisNexis), Procter & Gamble and Progressive Insurance, SC Johnson and GEICO have decided to distance themselves from the fear monger, Glenn Beck.

On Tuesday, August 4, GEICO instructed its ad buying service to redistribute its inventory of rotational spots on FOX-TV to their other network programs, exclusive of the Glenn Beck program,” said a spokesperson for GEICO Corporate Communications in an email to ColorOfChange.org.  “As of August 4, GEICO no longer runs any paid advertising spots during Mr. Beck’s program.

This response is due to a mass emailing effort arranged by ColorOfChange members. 75,000 members have taken part so far. If you wish to be included, click here.

Glenn Beck’s Sponsors React Over Racism Comments

Glenn Beck went on a tirade against President Obama, calling him a racist. Several public figures and web sites, including ColorOfChange.org and FoxNewsBoycott.com, call for a boycott of  Glenn Beck’s sponsors.

Over  45,000 ColorOfChange.org members called on advertisers to pull their ads from Glenn Beck’s show. LexisNexis-owned Lawyers.com, Procter & Gamble and Progressive Insurance listened.This is what they had to say:

LEXISNEXIS: Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention. We have suspended further advertising during Mr. Beck’s program. We have no plans to continue advertising on Mr. Beck’s show.

PROCTER & GAMBLE: No P&G ads should have appeared on this program in the first place. To be clear, if any of our advertising appeared on the Glenn Beck show, it was in error and we appreciate you bringing this matter to our attention.  We will do what we can to see that it doesn’t happen again.

PROGRESSIVE: Our (advertising) order specifies no Glenn Beck. We have confirmed with the network that our spots should not be running there.

Donny Deutsch Calls For Boycott of Glenn Beck’s Advertisers!

Daily Kos user aggregatescience reported that MSNBC / CNBC’s Donny Deutsch has called for a boycott of Glenn Beck’s advertisers due to Beck’s asinine claim that President Obama is a racist. Deutch announced the charge on his show, The Big Idea:

DEUTSCH: He called this president a ‘racist’ and a ‘hatred of white people’, okay?  This has to stop.  Here’s the only way this stops.  The reason this man does this, this Glenn Beck does this, is because it attracts viewers, it creates controversy…

If you’re an African-American or white American who’s tired of this kind of talk, write to the CEO’s of those companies and say: ‘you know what, put it somewhere else on Fox News, I’m not saying take it [your advertising] off of Fox News, take it off this man’s show.

The following advertisers were listed by Deutsch on air:

  • General Motors
  • Campbell Soup
  • Chrysler
  • Proctor & Gamble
  • Pfizer
  • Kellogg
  • Walmart
  • Kraft Foods
  • Nestle

I will make sure those are all included on the Fox News Sponsors List
