    Attack on Obama riles Becks advertisers - Road Runner

    A total of 33 Fox advertisers, including Walmart, CVS Caremark, Clorox and Sprint, directed that their commercials not air on Beck's show, according to the companies and ColorofChange.org, a group that promotes political action among blacks and launched a campaign to get advertisers to abandon him. That's more than a dozen more than were identified a week ago.

    What amazes me is how any advertiser could look at a drama queen like Beck and say....

    "Thats the guy I want to represent us!"

    Beck doesn't look too worried.
