Let's make a difference
I have received an e-mail from ColourOfChange.org regarding a campaign to contact some companies that advertise on the Glenn Beck show:
Over 150,000 of you have called on Glenn Beck's advertisers to stop supporting his show, and more than 20 major companies have now said "NO" to Beck. It's an amazing response.
Some advertisers pulled their ads; others didn't realize they were on Beck but have now taken steps to make sure their ads don't run during his show. And the effort is making headlines.
I can't ring from France very easily, but those of you in the US can!
Here are some of the companies, CEO's names and phone numbers. If you click on the name of any of the companies, the link will take you to a page on the Color of Change website where there is a "script" to help when making the call.
Lowe's - CEO: Robert Niblock, telephone number: 704-758-2084
Clorox - CEO: Don Knauss, telephone number: 510-271-7000
Red Lobster - CEO: Clarence Otis, telephone number: 407-245-4000
Vonage - Contact: Jeffrey Citron, telephone number: 732-528-2600
Glenn Beck's lies and inflammatory racist rhetoric shouldn't remain unchallenged.
This video links Beck to Sarah Palin, who gave him an interview in January on his debut at Fox News. Both have been spewing lies and making inflammatory statements since then.
