Glenn Beck Goes Bye-Bye, and ColorofChange Says, "You're Welcome"

Glenn Beck's last show was yesterday and no one is partying harder than the folks who advocated his demise at the ColorofChange.  Sending out petition after petition calling for his resignation, ColorofChange rightly takes the credit for putting pressure on Fox executives, turning Beck, a once prized possession into a financial liability.  But they use the opportunity to let everyone know that the while the battle is won, the war is far from over. The news network's reputation of race-baiting is still carried on by other commentators and pundits.  ColorofChange published an open letter to Fox executives Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes  to curb their commentators using the recent remarks of Fox Business personality Eric Bolling (saying President Obama usually has “hoodlums in the hizzhouse”) as an example of their latest in racially charged commentary.
