Glenn Beck Advertisers Pull Out.

I find it interesting that, since Beck made his statement about Obama being a racist, TV advertisers are distancing themselves from his programme.

As Cenk points out here, it could all be so much smoke and mirrors, but eventually, if this continues, it will actually begin to hurt Fox. At which point, Beck becomes toast.

There is a limit to just how offensive and outlandish a TV host can be, and Beck is pretty much at the outer perimeters of taste with a style of broadcasting that has become hysterical and fantastical. The deluded tea baggers must love what he offers, but anyone still on planet Earth watches him discuss Nazi eugenics with their mouths open.

Even fellow conservatives are in agreement that this guy goes way too far. Indeed, they openly laugh at what Beck does.
