Glenn Beck’s media empire is dying, and the FCC banning Beck from the radio may be the final straw in the collapse of #neverTrump
The Shock End of Beck’s Company revealed:
Satellite radio company SiriusXM has suspended Glenn Beck’s syndicated show this week over comments made last week by one of Beck’s guests.
Last week, fiction writer Brad Thor appeared on Beck’s program and suggested GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump was a danger to America and that citizens would have to take means that may not be legal in order to get Trump out of office. Beck did not immediately admonish or distance himself from the comments, leading to the suspension by SiriusXM.
“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 the company’s judgment, may be reasonably construed by some to have been advocating harm against an individual currently running for office, which SiriusXM cannot and will not condone. For that reason, The Glenn Beck Program is suspended from our Patriot channel for the coming week. SiriusXM is committed to a spirited, robust, yet responsible political conversation and believes this action reflects those values,” the network said in a statement.
Beck’s slot was filled on the Patriot channel by David Webb on Tuesday. His slot on his own network’s SiriusXM channel “The Blaze” was filled by Doc Thompson and Skip LaCombe.
Representatives for Beck did not immediately respond to requests for comments.
