8 more companies have dropped Beck.

The perils of building a career out of right-wing hatemongering ... 

8 more companies have pulled their ads from Glenn Beck's Fox show, spurred by a Color of Change campaign urging advertisters to drop Beck after the shock jock and talk show host called President Obama "a racist" with a "deepseated hatred for white people."

A Color of Change press release states: 

Eight more Glenn Beck advertisers, including Wal-Mart – the world’s largest retailer – have confirmed to ColorOfChange.org that they pulled their ads from the controversial Fox News Channel broadcaster’s eponymous show. Allergan (maker of Restasis), Ally Bank (a unit of GMAC Financial Services), Best Buy, Broadview Security, CVS, Re-Bath, Travelocity and Wal-Mart join the dozen other companies who previously distanced themselves from Beck.
