Tomi Lahren’s Show Reportedly Suspended From TheBlaze After Pro-Choice Remarks

Tomi Lahren has had her show, “Tomi, suspended by TheBlaze, according to The Daily Caller.
Sources told the outlet that while the 24-year-old political commentator will be suspended for at least one week, she may not finish out the duration of her contract, which expires in September.
Lahren’s reported suspension comes after she incited backlash Friday as a guest on “The View” by calling anti-abortion conservatives “hypocrites” during her appearance and admitting she believed in a woman’s right to an abortion.

“I’m pro-choice,” she said, “and here’s why: I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think that the government should decide what women should do with their bodies.”

Dan Rather To Write A Book On ‘What Unites Us’

Dan Rather has just announced that he’ll be writing a book of essays on “what patriotism looks like.” It’ll be called What Unites Us.

The book will be published by Algonquin and is slated for release this November.

The venerated television journalist ― who is currently 85 years old ― has only grown in popularity in recent years, particularly with his recent commentary on President Donald Trump.

Reddit Bans Prominent Alt-Right Community Amidst Doxxing Rumors

The so-called alt-right has lost one of its prominent online gathering spaces after Reddit banned a subreddit dedicated to the group, which is characterized by white nationalist, anti-Semitic and misogynist viewpoints.
The “/r/altright” community was well known on Reddit and around the web for the derogatory nature of its conversations. If you visit what used to be the “/r/altright” community’s page, the message that fills the screen says: “This subreddit was banned due to a violation of our content policy, specifically, the proliferation of personal and confidential information.”

Here’s Why Twitter Is Raging Against Steve Bannon

The internet (including a top foreign policy official) isn’t happy that Steve Bannon was promoted to a role on the National Security Council on Saturday.

The hashtag #StopPresidentBannon began trending on Twitter and blew up over the weekend as thousands rallied to protest President Donald Trump’s chief strategist.

Bannon’s new position, one that exists to advise the president on national security and foreign affairs, downgraded the roles of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the director of national intelligence. They will only attend the council when considering issues in “their direct areas of responsibilities.”

Bannon, the former executive chairman of Breitbart News, which airs white nationalist viewpoints, made his name leading a site that peddles racist and misogynist conspiracy theories.

This notion was only reinforced Continue reading "Here’s Why Twitter Is Raging Against Steve Bannon"
