Talk show host Glenn Beck returned to the air Monday, but did not address the advertiser boycott that began after he called President Barack Obama a racist.
Beck, who had been away on a planned vacation, didn't shy away from making other controversial statements upon his return, however. Launching a weeklong series called "The New Republic: America's Future," Beck opened the show by encouraging viewers to tell their friends to watch his show with a pen and paper because he was going to ask "reasonable questions for unreasonable times."
DefendGlenn.com, a website supporting Beck, said Wal-Mart wasn't simply pulling ads from Beck's program, but "all cable news talk shows."
TVGuide.com's calls to a Wal-Mart spokesperson were not immediately returned.
The boycott began shortly after Beck called Obama a racist with a "deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture" during an appearance on Fox & Friends.
