It looks like someone got their “just desserts” this week. Apparently and allegedly, controversial and conservative television personality, Tomi Lahren, has been “banned permanently” from Glenn Beck’s The Blaze Network.
This all stems from her decision to come out as “pro-choice” last week which got her suspended.

“Glenn is reminding the world of his conservative principles by sidelining Tomi after she insulted conservatives by calling them hypocrites,” one Beck insider told me.
Fans think Beck — once a big Ted Cruz backer — has lost his conservative bona fides. He went on Samantha Bee’s TBS show in December and apologized for being divisive in the past.
“He’s trying to balance being a leading conservative thinker and also someone who can unify the country,” the Beck associate told me. “He just couldn’t sit by and watch as Tomi Lahren said there’s no way for conservatives to justify anything other than being pro-choice.”
“Beck’s trying to reinvent himself,” a former insider told me. “But he’s burned too many bridges.”
TheBlaze, founded seven years ago in Dallas, once had offices in New York and 300 employees. Now, the New York office is closed and the staff is half that size.
While the number of paying subscribers (once said to be 300,000) is kept secret,attracted 29 million unique visitors per month in 2014, and only 8.8 million uniques in February 2017, for a loss of more than two-thirds of its traffic.
Jerry Del Colliano, founder of Inside Radio, said Beck’s syndicated talk radio show has slipped as well from No. 3 to No. 5.
“Beck has lost his mojo, and TheBlaze helped him lose it,” Del Colliano said. “It’s hard to figure out where he is coming from.”
We really cannot say we are unhappy about Tomi’s misfortunes, but we are surprised by her pro-choice stance. Still, just because she is down now does not mean she will be forever. We are sure some conservative–or skewed network (insert cough and Fox News)–will be giving her a job, her own show, and a much higher salary any day now.
