Beck Watch: FOX in Denial?

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


A spokesperson for FOX News told TVNewser that claims by ColorofChange that the advertising revenue for Glenn Beck’s program has halved since the ad boycott began last month are “wildly inaccurate on all fronts—revenue has not been affected in any way.” I find that surprising, considering that the program once hosted blockbuster advertisers like AT&T, Capital One, and Mercedes-Benz, and is now limited to the rather anemic list shown below. But hey, the first step to recovery is denial, right?

Here’s who advertised on Glenn Beck’s program today:

Rosland Capital

Carbonite

News Corp. (The Wall Street Journal)

BookIt.com

The Foundation for a Better Life

Clarity Media Group (The Weekly Standard)

Lear Capital

Conservatives for Patients’ Rights

Citrix (GoToMeeting)

Allstate Insurance Co.

Publisher’s Clearing House

LifeLock

Freije Treatment Systems (EasyWater Systems)

Consumer Debt Relief

IRSTaxAgreements.com

Merit Financial

Imperial Structured Settlements

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today. It's all hands on deck for democracy.
