Choosing Sides

Is a left-wing attempt to scare off advertisers from Fox News host Glenn Beck’s highly rated cable news show being orchestrated with some high level help from the Obama White House?
Perhaps. is reporting that the co-founder of the African-American political organization Color of Change, which is calling for Beck's ouster, is civil rights attorney Van Jones. In March, President Obama appointed Jones to serve as his so-called "green-jobs czar," responsible for stimulating job growth in the environmental sector.

Color of Change claims that it has pressured a growing roster of companies into pulling their ads from Beck's program: Roche, Sanofi-Aventis, RadioShack, GEICO, Progressive Insurance, Men's Wearhouse, State Farm, Sargento,, and Procter & Gamble.

One company — SC Johnson of Racine, Wis. — is disputing statements that it has pulled its ads from the Beck show.

We too know how to boycott, and we're good at it. Edie sent the following e-mail to Progressive Insurance, and we will both send e-mails to the other sponsors who have pulled their ads from the Glenn Beck show.

Dear Ms. Harris:

It has come to my attention that Progressive may be part of boycotting Glenn Beck's Fox TV show by not allowing Progressive advertising to be aired during Mr. Beck's show time. I am asking that you confirm or deny in an email reply to me that Progressive is pulling its advertising from the Glenn Beck show. If you are, in fact, boycotting the Glenn Beck program because of pressure from the group Color of Change, my family will then choose to boycott Progressive.

I await your reply.

Yesterday while watching the Glenn Beck show, we actually paid attention to the commercials. Below are the companies that advertise on Glenn's show. Hopefully these advertisers will hear from a vast amount of people thanking them for their advertising support of Fox News and the Glenn Beck program.
