Ingraham returns to work, complains about censorship

Ingraham returns to work, complains about censorship

Allman has been critical of Hogg, who has become the face of the teen anti-gun movement following the mass shooting at his Parkland, Florida high school on February 14 which left 17 people dead.

Allman posted his tweet on March 26, two days before Fox News host Laura Ingraham mocked Hogg in a tweet for being rejected from colleges to which he had applied.

KDNL-TV accepted Jamie Allman's resignation and canceled "The Allman Report", according to a brief statement from Ronn Torossian, a spokesman for the Sinclair Broadcast Group, which operates the TV station.

In his tweet, Allman wrote that he has "been hanging out getting ready to ram a hot poker up David Hogg's a** tomorrow".

He was rightly slammed on Twitter and people asked the advertisers of the show to boycott it after his vulgar comments. The tweet has since been deleted, but The Riverfront Times and St. Louis Dispatch published the content of the tweet over the weekend.

State Rep. Stacey Newman, D-Richmond Heights, who focused successfully on shutting down Allman's television show on KDNL (Channel 30) retweeted Jaco's message.

Hogg has not publicly commented on Allman's remarks.

With no response from the Phenom in the build-up, Cena sat in the crowd for the event, drinking his beer and enjoying the action. WWE did their best to keep us on our toes, but when Cena was yanked from the stands an ran backstage, we knew the fix was in.

The context of the tweet - and why Allman was citing March 27 as the day for the assault - was not immediately clear.

But, she said that the left's "propaganda" did get through to some of the students and "shaped a new generation of young adults" who came up with new jargon like "safe spaces", "microaggression" and "white privilege" as rhetorical tools to silence opposing views.

And addressing the exodus of advertisers from her show, Ingraham again invoked the First Amendment's free speech protections.

Advertisers bolted from "The Ingraham Angle" after the tweet went viral and Hogg urged his 700,000 Twitter followers to contact Ingraham's advertisers and press them to boycott her primetime show.

Since the Hogg posting, Allman's Twitter account has been "locked" and anyone who wants to see his tweets first has to request his permission to follow him.

President Trump last week defended the company after a video showing dozens of Sinclair news anchors reading a script expressing concern about "fake stories" and "one-sided news stories plaguing the country" appeared on TV news reports and circulated online. "We have to be allowed to refute what you're saying. or to respond to it, you can't be all the time grabbing your blanket when the going gets tough". "Just be a grownup about it".
