Hold Glenn Beck, Fox, and News Corp Accountable

From ColorOfChange.org:

Rupert Murdoch, chairman of Fox News Channel's parent company News Corp, said he agrees with Glenn Beck's statement that President Obama is "a racist" -- a clear sign that Fox's problems with race start at the very top.

Now that he's been called out and the spotlight is squarely on him, Murdoch says he doesn't agree with Beck, but he won't denounce Beck's rhetoric either.

It's time to force the conversation, publicly. Murdoch can stand by the fact that he supports Glenn Beck's race-baiting; or he can tell us why he doesn't and what he's going to do about it.

We can hold Beck, Fox, and News Corp accountable. It starts by demanding Murdoch answer a few simple questions. Please add your voice now.

Stop Glenn Beck's race baiting

Fox's Glenn Beck recently said President Obama is "a racist" and has a "deep-seated hatred for white people." Beck is on a campaign to convince the American public that President Obama's agenda is about serving the needs of Black communities at White people's expense. It's repulsive, divisive and shouldn't be on the air.

Join ColorOfChange.org in calling on Beck's advertisers to stop sponsoring his show.

80 companies have stopped their ads from appearing on Glenn Beck's show--click here for the full list.

Oh, and in case you need a refresher course in the creepy, twisted worldwide of Beck, go here for a few examples of his NeoNazi ramblings.

Great post and I strongly support your advocacy, Marc. Beck, O'Reilly, Hannity, Malkin, and really the entire Fox crew are irresponsible rabble-rousing yellow journalists to no good end. Beck, in particular, seems very unbalanced and paranoid.

The whole Fox "News" Network is trash and would do Joseph Goebbels proud. They abuse free speech, and Rupert Murdoch is the most despicable of all of them!

I signed the petition and urge everybody else to do the same thing.

I was troubled by Herr Scumbaugh back in the '90s. But Glenn Beck has opened up a whole new door in right-wing-nutjob broadcasting. He seems more "mental" than any of his competitors, and that's saying a lot.
