    a mighty big audience, and advertisers want to reach it.

    The extremity of Beck's attacks and lies -- calling the President a fascist, muttering conspiratorially about FEMA camps -- and the racial animosity he stokes -- accusing Obama of a "deep hatred" of white people or white culture -- these things make it easier to organize a campaign against him. We can pick off the worst of FOX, maybe, and by doing that we may cause FOX to limit their outrages a bit, but I don't think we can get advertisers to swear off of FOX altogether.

    Could we undermine Hannity once Glenn Beck is gone? I don't know, but it would certainly make the world a little cleaner.
