Pushing Back on Glenn Beck at the Local Level: How to do it

Posted by guest contributor Color of Change-Columbus

Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck

DailyKos—A group of Columbus activists has compiled a list of local advertisers of the Glenn Beck Radio Show simply by listening in on Beck the past several weeks (sweet Jesus, it was painful to hear the stupidity but somebody had to do it!)

We hope this effort catches on in other cities too—anyone can do it. Commercial breaks typically begin with several national ads which are followed by local spots. We posted the list on several local websites and amongst local progressive groups. Five advertisers have already pulled their ads during Beck’s show (several of which were BIG accounts)!

Our local campaign would really catch fire if the national Color of Change group could blast our list to the email addresses of those who have signed petitions with zip codes beginning with 430, 431 and 432.

We’ve contacted the national Color of Change group but have not heard back. We know they are very busy and a local email blast may not be feasible but it’s worth a shot asking. BTW, a huge tip of the hat the people running Color of Change .

To get more info about their local effort and how you can help, please email Color of Change-Columbus.

    I’m sure Glenn is shaking in his boots right now.
