Apparently, after Glenn Beck called President Obama a “racist” and progressivism “cancer,” some companies took notice and decided enough was enough. 33 companies, including Apple, told Fox they wanted their ads moved from Glenn Beck’s show to another advertising slot last August.
This didn’t cause a lot of trouble for Fox, I imagine, but with 200 companies joining the boycott and Apple deciding to remove its advertising from the Fox News Network altogether now, this is surely making a statement and an impact.
In order to encourage more outside-the-box corporate responsibility, Care2 has an action page set up where you can go and thank Steve Jobs and Apple for their courageous and honorable decisions on this issue.
Show your support for Apple, Steve Jobs and sensible television programming today. I just became the 16,013th person to sign the letter, but Care2 needs about 4,000 more signatures to reach its target.
