OAKLAND, Calif. – The following is a statement from James Rucker, executive director of ColorOfChange.org, in response to Glenn Beck’s departure from the Fox News Channel:
“ColorOfChange strongly applauds Glenn Beck’s departure from the Fox News Channel. More than 285,000 ColorOfChange members have participated in our campaign against him since it began in July 2009. Because of them, Beck’s show lost more than 300 advertisers – companies that were unwilling to attach their products and brands to his vitriolic and divisive commentary. Fox News Channel clearly understands that Beck’s increasingly erratic behavior is a liability to their ratings and their bottom line, and we are glad to see them take this action.”
With more than 750,000 members, ColorOfChange.org is the nation’s largest African-American online political organization.
If Glenn Beck's "erratic behavior" was a drag on the show's ratings then what can we conclude is the ratings problem over at MSNBC in the fact that "The Glenn Beck Show" is the third highest rated cable news show on the air - topping ALL of MSNBC shows which are more favorable to "The Color Of Change"?
Cable News Ratings
In the mind of "Color Of Change" and other Progressive-Fundamentalist operations "hate speech" is anything that counters what they believe.
As "Activists of Leisure" they are able to cherry pick among the problems (real or imagined) that Black people face, always seeming to pick the ones that fall in line with their ideological bailiwick.
