VIDEO: Glenn Beck exposes Color of Change co-founder Van Jones

Chicago Tribune: 'Color of Change' boycott leader says FOX host "trying to change subject'' (Aug 24, 2009)

In protest, the group, "Color of Change,'' has promoted an advertising boycott and says it has secured commitments from 36 companies pledging not to advertise on Beck's afternoon show, with a growing audience of more than 2 million viewers.

Beck "spent a large share of his program suggesting that Jones, who co-founded Color of Change in 2005, is a radical,'' Gold writes. "During a six-minute biographical profile, set to ominous music, Beck said Jones was twice arrested for political protests and has described himself as a "rowdy black nationalist.'''

And his ratings are up from July, when Beck's program averaged 2.05 million viewers.

AIM: Glenn Beck Closing in on Van Jones (August 24, 2009)

"Is Glenn Beck finished?" is the headline over an article on a left-wing website, insisting that a campaign against Beck's Fox News Channel program has cost him 36 advertisers and that his show may be cancelled as a result. The campaign against Beck is being waged by a group called Color of Change, whose co-founder, Van Jones, is now Obama's green-jobs czar.  Not coincidentally, Beck has repeatedly singled out Van Jones for criticism....

New Zeal: Obama File 72 Obama Appoints "Former" Communist To White House "Green Job"   (April 6, 2009)
