Skip to comments.Beck’s UK broadcast runs without ads; over 100 companies have ditched Beck
Posted on 02/20/2010 2:06:31 PM PST by justlittleoleme
Yesterday, for the fifth day in a row, the UK broadcast of Glenn Becks TV show was forced to run without any advertisements. This is thanks to efforts by StopBeck.com to pressure companies advertising on Becks UK broadcast.
While Becks UK broadcast has been forced to run without ads, his US broadcast has been reduced to running promos for other shows on Fox, ads from direct marketers (think exercise equipment and gold coins) and a handful of private companies headed by right-wingers.

I am guessing that the fact that they pulled ads means most were left leaning to begin with...
Socialists know that corporations are frightened of them and their pressure tactics.
We do the same, so whats the big deal?
I would love to see Beck with break, maybe even send in a little cash to do so.
Give us a list.
The UK has ads?
So jack and jill is a leftard site? At least give us a warning so I wont give em a webcount.
They didn't care. They made excuses. They fudged the truth.

Lol....Anybody who watches TV for the commercials is short a few crayons in the box.
Everytime someone tells me that Beck is a fringe nutcase, I just point to all the Beck-haters on the Left. They truly fear him and the format of his show that explains things in detail. To be successful, the Left needs a world full of idiots that only need a soundbite to make a decision.
All right, already. After a certain point it becomes repetitive and boring. Even the doomed can get bored.
Fox, in the US anyway, has already said they don’t really care. The sponsors didn’t completely withdraw from advertising on Fox, just asked their ads be run during other programming, so Fox didn’t lose any $$$ and I don’t think they’ll can Beck who’s up 125% in ratings in the demo of 25-54.
I wouldn’t take this too seriously. Consider the source for this report. With beck’s ratings, he will not have a shortage of sponsors.
Beck would be off the air if any of this was true - he’s not NPR or the BBC, he has no guaranteed source of income. I suspect these fascists are exaggerating their success.
The companies selling gold keep advertising. They love the doom and gloom.
Are sponsors going to drop out from FAMILY GUY because of the tasteless content there?
Libs support free speech for themselves.
Conservatives need to equal the playing field by targeting a few liberal shows for boycott. Eventually all the companies will realize they can’t pull out of every show and ignore all the complainers.
I couldn’t find a source for this that wasn’t on the left. They are proud of this, and we need to be aware. Sorry to everyone for linking to a leftist site.
