Apple Newest In FOX News Boycott
March 29, 2010
(ChattahBox) – It is well known that 200 companies have boycotted Glenn Beck’s ridiculous parody of a political program, but a handful of businesses have said “goodbye” to FOX News all together. Apple has become the newest of the latter, removing all advertising from the network in protest of their questionable ethics and frequent allegations of lying and slander.
Apple is one of the big boys to say no to FOX, and their retreat from the network will likely strike the conservative station harder than many of the others.
But before Apple, the fleeing of so many major companies has caused some concern for both FOX and Beck, the pundit who originally started the exodus.
The sponsors left contain some major names, but more little guys, like: 1-800-PETMEDS, Ditech, and TimeLife audio CD’s.
Not only that, but the boycotting has reached to consumers, as well. Many people are refusing to shop from any company supporting the network, or Glenn Beck himself.
FOX News has its’ own supporters who have called for the boycott of the companies who have left the advertising slots, but they seem to be less successful, so far.
Will Apple’s move be the one that makes FOX News wake up and start addressing the blatant hate talk and lies by many of their pundits?
