Glenn Beck is an avid supporter of capitalism, and can be seen almost daily discussing the horrors of socialism, Marxism, communism, or any other economic system that is not capitalism. This had me formulate a comparison that only Glenn Beck can understand.
Glenn Beck is receiving welfare from Fox News to stay on the air.
ColorofChange.org launched a boycott of Glenn Beck's program over the statement made by Beck claiming Obama was a "racist" with a "deep-seated hatred of white people." To date, there are over 270,000 petitioners and up to 80 companies refusing to advertise on his program. The news has reported that although these advertisers have shifted their advertisements from Glenn Beck to other Fox programs, the advertising dollars are still there. This equates to a redistribution of wealth for Fox News. Glenn Beck's program is relying on other programs such as The O'Reilly Factor and The Sean Hannity Show to stay afloat.
Fox News should practice what they preach and cancel the show.
Glenn Beck's program has lost pretty much all major advertisers, but continues to be on the air because the advertisers have not left the station, just the show. As long as they continue to play their advertisements on other programs, the station continues to subsidize Glenn Beck, making Beck a recipient in a system that he despises so much. The definition of that is a hypocrite.
