BREAKING: SiriusXM SUSPENDS GLENN BECK SHOW after Perceived Threats Against Donald Trump
SiriusXM hosts Stephen K. Bannon and David Webb announced on Breitbart News Daily that SiriusXM has suspended Glenn Beck and Webb will temporarily take over Beck’s 9AM to noon Eastern time slot on SiriusXM’s Patriot Channel 125.
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.
Mike Cernovich at Danger and Play was the first to post on the disturbing exchange between Glenn Beck and author Brad Thor last week.

Author Brad Thor said he did not intend the comments to come off as a threat against Donald Trump.
