H/T to Color of Change yet again for coordinating this anti-Glenn Beck campaign.
It's his right to spew hate, but it's our responsibility to hold his corporate sponsors accountable!
Join the campaign now.

While I disagree with Beck and find him to be nothing short of a fool. I think we need to be careful how we clamp down on freedom of speech. It can come back to haunt us. Yes our media is controlled by a minority bent on promoting White Supremacy in let's face a world that is perdominately brown. But the key to fighting this is with knowledge. The pressure needs to be put on FOX News' license and the FCC renewal of that license. Also we need to support media organizations that fight against this type of stupidity like Democracy Now! (http://www.democracynow.org/) and Pacifica Radio Stations (http://www.pacifica.org/). The media that combats this miniority opinion of life in the US is here is struggling to survive. We need to focus on getting these media outlets more exposure thus forcing media outlets like FOX to realize there is a market and voice that is not going to allow them to peddle hate. By the way I wrote my own letter out of shear frustration to Beck: http://www.glennbeck.com/content/program/contact/
