(Update: 8/17/23 @ 10:41 a.m.): Beck has since tweeted that his catalog of shows has been restored by Apple, but he still hasn't received an explanation for the initial removal.

(Original Story) It wouldn’t be Apple if they weren’t censoring someone, like they did in leading the charge a few years ago of the coordinated de-platforming of polarizing political and societal commentator Alex Jones. And now, they’ve apparently come for Glenn Beck.

The Blaze founder posted a video to X explaining that Apple has removed his podcast because of an undisclosed “issue.”

“We’re just sitting here in my office, and we’re discussing something that we just saw,” Beck said. “This is from Apple: ‘We found an issue with your show, The Glenn Beck Program, which must be resolved before it’s available on Apple Podcasts. Your show has been removed from Apple Podcasts.

They sent us a link and said, ‘for more details go to the link,’” Beck continued. “And the link only says, ‘your link has been removed from Apple Podcasts.’ Well, we got that one, dummy.”

Beck claimed that the show had previously never even so much as received a strike against it before this step was taken by Apple. He even went so far as to say that Apple will most likely tell him, as most social media authoritarian platforms do, that the removal was “just a glitch.”

This type of censorship — no matter whether it was just an “error” on Apple’s part or not — is becoming more and more commonplace, showing that big corporations have no allegiance to the country most of them were founded in and the free speech that the U.S. is supposed to afford its people.

These removals — accidental or not — are just par for the course for Big Tech companies who are beholden to advertisers and the politicians who dictate that certain speech is a symptom of “white supremacy” or whatever other dumbass take they think is so enlightened.

As someone who has purposefully never bought — and never intends to buy — an Apple product in his entire life, it certainly does seem like no one should take a bite of “the Apple.”
