LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
Tomi Lahren, the controversial and now in-question conservative television personality, has been suspended by her parent company the Blaze, reports the Daily Caller.
The Daily Caller reports that Lahren’s show is suspended for at least one week starting Monday, according to multiple sources.
The reported suspension follows a previous report that Lahren may leave the conservative media outlet prior to her contract end date, which is September of this year.
According to the Daily Caller, Lahren’s inflammatory style placed her at odds with other employees at the Blaze, and the tensions between them were high even prior to the starlet’s recent comment on “The View” that she is “pro-choice.”
Founder of the Blaze Glenn Beck took to his radio program Monday morning to respond to the media hoopla saying:
“I would disagree that you’re a hypocrite if you want limited government and yet you want the government to protect life of the unborn. It’s very, very clear. But it takes intellectual honesty, and it takes a willingness to actually think these things through and to do more than just read Twitter or Facebook to get your news and your political opinions. You actually have to study things — these things out in your mind. Especially at a time period like today,” Beck said.
“Bomb throwing is — bomb throwing in today’s world is dangerous. Freedom of speech, it’s not free. Speech isn’t free. It comes with a very high price tag. First, being intellectually honest and intellectually curious. Speech is not free. It comes with another cost and usually to the other people at the other end of your argument. The pen is mightier than the sword, and it can destroy people if your aim is clicks, views, and ratings,” he continued.
Lahren has yet to return request for comment to both the Daily Caller and the Libertarian Republic.
