Glenn Beck Sponsorship Loss Now At 119

Controversial FOX NEWS commentator Glenn Beck may be the most popular voice on that network, but according to the website the list of sponsors who have dropped advertising for his nightly show or have refused to advertise on it has risen to 119.

The latest sponsors to drop Glenn Beck in the United States are George Foreman Cooking, Sylvan Learning, and Weight Watchers.

Among the remaining sponsors of the Glenn Beck program are Dish Network, The American Petroleum Institute, and the State of Utah's Department of Tourism.

Beck, an ally of the Tea Party Movement, gave a keynote address at the Conservative Political Action Conference this past Saturday. In his speech he compared Republican spending addictions to his own problems of past alcohol abuse.

You're aware that Glenn Beck has *zero* advertisers on one of the channels in Britain, right? Yet NewsCorp insists on keeping his non-revenue-generating self on the air. Go figure.

Terri- I read that at the website, but didn't go into it in depth.

I've said it before....everything that Paddy Chayefsky wrote in NETWORK back in 1976 with the fictional Howard Beale blurring news/commentary/ entertainment has become true.

Glenn Beck> Howard Beale= The Real Deal.
