Add Best Buy to the list of companies that has reportedly pulled its advertising from Fox News’ “Glenn Beck Program” after its host accused President Obama of being a racist.
ColorOfChange.org, the nation’s largest African-American online political organization, has been pressuring companies to stop advertising during the program.
A press release from the website this week says Best Buy has joined CVS, Wal-Mart and Travelocity in the latest wave to pull the plug. A Fox News spokesperson tells the New York Times that the advertising has been shifted to other time slots.
CEPro, a trade publication for electronics business professionals, notes that Best Buy and Wal-Mart have been sparring with each other lately, but they apparently agree on one thing: “Glenn Beck is an idiot.”
