On Radicals, Communists and Other Terrorist Types Who Don't Like Glenn Beck

 Facing ongoing pressure from some of ColorOfChange.org's 600,000 black members, another 16 companies have pulled
ads from Fox News' fear-mongering Glenn Beck Show. The newest of 36 companies
now pledged not to support Beck include Sprint, Lowe's, Clorox, UPS,
NutriSystem and Campbell's Soup. Like any good right-wing nutcase,
Beck's response to his sudden unpopularity has been to name-call.
He has begun calling Van Jones, ColorOfChange co-founder and green energy
consultant to the White House, bad names including "a communist! a
communist!", proving that such McCarthyesque inanities apparently never go
out of fashion.
