SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- A California non-profit is urging sponsors to pull their ads from Fox News Channel, because of "a would-be assassin inspired by" Fox personality Glenn Beck.

The Tides Foundation, which says it promotes human rights, justice, and a healthy, sustainable environment, has come in for frequent criticism on Beck's show. A suspect in a July 28 shootout with police, Byron Williams, told police in an affidavit he had intended to go to the Tides Foundation's office in San Francisco and kill founder and Chief Executive Officer Drummond Pike.

"I would have never started watching Fox News if it wasn't for the fact that Beck was on there," Williams told the liberal blog Media Matters in a jailhouse interview. "And it was the things that he did, it was the things he exposed that blew my mind."

Glenn Beck mind control techniques really work !!!

The Tides Foundation, which says it promotes human rights, justice, and a healthy, sustainable environment,

When Drummond Pike started this little commie money-laundering operation he used to brag about how his books were "squeaky clean." This guy is a thug of the first order, who single-handedly channeled the money to shut down massive hunks of the Pacific Coast timber, aluminum, and fishing industries, first with spotted owls and then with a bogus salmon listings. His machinations wrecked families, forcing a generation of kids to grow up in that region with no hope and no future, drug addled and suicidal.

I want this creep in jail.

Beck beats on The Tides Foundation all the time as well as a lot of lefty outfits that would never be exposed if not for his show. I am surprised they have not assassinated him!

Tides Foundation is a marxist led pressure group. Has close ties with the Jay Rockefeller and evil scions. Real America haters wrapped in a green blanket.

It's simpler to just blare across the world that BP supports the Tides Foundation.

Well, that will make Fox’s ratings go up a few more points!

Just add fuel to the fire, DUmmies!

Only a planted nutjob would drive like a spastic to make sure he gets stopped before reaching his "objective."

He's a Democrat plant, paid very well for a few weeks of psychological observation before they cut him loose under pre-arrangement.

Any advertiser that drops Beck or FOX will only make room for the scores of 'em lined up with cash in hand, waiting for a shot at the best advertising market on cable.

Dembiciles are such stupid douchebags. They fool only themselves, and maybe a few of their "gimme some reparations" handout lemmings.

Sheesh! People say that all the time on FR.

Terresa Heinz Kerry has NOTHING to do with Heinz Company or ketchup. It belonged to her late husband, the one who was a Republican Senator, and the company was sold eons ago.

Of course, Fox can’t yield to this.

Having said that, I’ve gone from being a big Beck Supporter to thinking he’s jumped the shark. If I want to watch a televeangelist, I’ll turn on Jimmy Swaggart (he’s still around, isn’t he?).

Byron Williams’ “shootout” and subsequent survival and very convenient explanation seem like a total setup to me.
