Fox News advertiser boycott fails. Glen Beck #1 in his time slot!


CofCC.org News Team

A campaign to get advertisers to boycott the Glen Beck show is claiming victory. They say Proctor and Gamble is boycotting the network over Becks’ comments about Obama hating white people.

In reality, P&G only asked to move it’s Beck ads to different time slots to appease the left-wing. They have not actually reduced the amount of spots they purchase from Fox News.

The “boycott” campaign is being run by an organization of black race hustlers called “Color of Change.” Their other major issue is reducing the penalty for people arrested with crack cocaine.
