Glenn Beck Suspended

When I first heard this news yesterday I was confused. I thought that Beck was now exclusively in the domain of the Blaze and it's affiliates. Since he owns that network, there is no way he could be suspended.

I didn't realize his show also aired on Sirius/XM. That's who suspended him. The suspension was brought about by a guest's suggestion that Donald Trump wouldn't be removable as president...unless a patriot removed him. The clear implication was that it would take an assassin.

Not cool.

This kind of loose talk about our current president is common place, of course, on these right wing shows. It's not right no matter who they are talking about. You have the right to free speech. You don't have the right to scream "FIRE" in a crowded movie theater.
