Glenn Beck Loses Sponsorships

As of Tuesday, twenty corporations, "classified as either responsible corporate citizens or easily bullied cowards," (AOL) dropped their sponsorship of Glenn Beck due to the fact that he called Obama "racist." For expressing his personal opinion, his licentia loquendi (freedom of speech), Beck has been punished. In my opinion, regardless of how one feels about Beck's opinion, he should still be allowed to state it.

The list includes Wal-Mart, Travelocity, Best Buy, Geico, CVS, Radio Shack, Men's Wearhouse, Procter & Gamble, State Farm Insurance, GMAC Financial Services, ConAgra, Roche, Sanofi-Aventis, Sargento, Lawyers.com and Progressive Insurance (I'm still searching for the others).

I believe that Bowflex, Nutrisystem, Gerber, UPS, Vonage, Ameritrade and Verizon Wireless still sponsor Beck.
