Apple Boycotts Ads On Fox News Because Of Glenn Beck

Posted Mar 28, 2010

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and about 200 other advertisers “joined a boycott” against Fox News because of Glenn Beck’s program. Apple abandoned Fox News altogether. This makes it difficult for Fox to sell ads. Now Fox News is dealing with smaller firms to sell ad space.

Glenn Beck has called President Obama a racist and even called progressivism “cancer.” Katie Couric once asked Beck about what he thinks when critics says that he “resorts to inflammatory, unfair, despicable, hateful rhetoric.” Beck responded by saying: “Did they say that when I was saying the same things about George W. Bush, or is this new?” [WashingtonPost]
