Fox News host Glenn Beck announced Wednesday in a carefully worded press release he will "transition off of his daily program" later this year in order to pursue solo projects. Fox News Chair Roger Ailes denied that economic pressure played a role in Fox's decision to let Beck go. But major advertisers have stayed away from Beck's show since 2009, when he claimed President Obama has "a deep-seated hatred of white people, or the white culture." Democracy Now! interviews James Rucker, co-founder of ColorOfChange.org, a group whose economic boycott of Beck prompted as many as 300 companies to abandon the right-wing pundit's program.
