Future of Beck’s show under evaluation – may not be back.
An announcement on SiriusXM radio Tuesday morning informed listeners that Glenn Beck has been temporarily suspended from his spot on the radio program for the remainder of this week, and his future with the show is under consideration. Host David Webb will take over this week.
SiriusXM issued the following statement:
“SiriusXM encourages a diversity of discourse and opinion on our talk programs. However, comments recently made by a guest on the independently produced Glenn Beck Program, in our judgement, may be reasonably construed by some to have been advocating harm against an individual currently running for office, which we cannot and will not condone. For that reason, we have suspended The Glenn Beck Program from our Patriot channel for the coming week and are evaluating its place in our lineup going forward. SiriusXM is committed to a spirited, robust, yet responsible political conversation and believes this action reflects those values.”
The suspension is because of his recent interview with fiction author Brad Thor and comments they made about how to get rid of Donald Trump. Many listeners sent in criticism over the interview, saying the two were at least implying an assassination attempt might be in order to get Trump out of office, should he win the Presidency.
