Wal-Mart Joins Glenn Beck Boycott

Eight more companies, including the nation's largest retailer, have pulled their advertising from Glenn Beck's show.
Allergan (maker of Restasis), Ally Bank (a unit of GMAC Financial Services), Best Buy, Broadview Security, CVS, Re-Bath, Travelocity and Wal-Mart join the dozen other companies who previously distanced themselves from Beck. Twenty companies have pulled their ads from Beck’s show in just the last two weeks. The moves come after the Fox News host called President Obama a “racist” who “has a deep-seated hatred for white people” during an appearance on Fox & Friends. Previous companies who pulled their ads include ConAgra, GEICO,, Men’s Wearhouse, Procter & Gamble, Progressive Insurance, RadioShack, Roche, SC Johnson, Sanofi-Aventis, Sargento, and State Farm Insurance.
Freepers have vowed to boycott any company joining the Glenn Beck pull-out. Somehow, I don't see them abandoning Wal-Mart. Heh.
