Fox News’ Glenn Beck is feeling the consequences of his controversial comments on the July 28 episode of “Fox and Friends,” when he said that Barack Obama was a “racist” who had a “deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture.” According to TVNewser, Beck advertisers Procter and Gamble, Lawyers.com and Progressive Insurance have all pulled their ads from Beck’s 5PM ET show. This comes in the wake of groups like ColorOfChange.org’s efforts to get companies to distance themselves from Beck.
