Huffington Post: Progressive Group Pressures Major League Baseball To Drop Glenn Beck
Huffington Post - October 13, 2011
The progressive group Americans United for Change is launching a campaign against Major League Baseball (MLB), pressuring the group to cut its ties to right-wing pundit Glenn Beck due to his history of controversial statements.
Beck recently left his high-profile spot as a host on Fox News to launch his own online network, GBTV. This spring, MLB Advanced Media, the interactive arm of the MLB, teamed up with Beck and agreed to provide him with a streaming video platform. Along with Beck's show, MLB Advanced Media streams more traditional sports fare, such as baseball games and March Madness.
