Sinclair News Show Axed After Host Threatens Sexual Assault On Parkland Survivor

11 Апреля, 2018, 08:06 | Author: Dustin Murphy
  • Laura Ingraham returned to Fox News on Monday. More

Allman initially posted the threatening tweet - which included a reference to sexual assault - in March.

Despite an initial effort to remain defiant in the face of the advertiser exodus, on Monday evening, Allman resigned from local ABC affiliate KDNL.

"We have accepted Mr. Allman's resignation, and his show has been canceled", a spokesman for Sinclair told The Washington Post and other outlets.

Allman is no stranger to controversy, nor is this the first time he's attacked outspoken teenagers.

No one from the police union that represents Harrell responded to a telephone message seeking comment.

On Monday night, Sinclair Broadcast Group, which owns the St. Louis ABC station, confirmed that Allman had resigned and that his program had been terminated. He has switched his Twitter account to private.

Hogg, 17, was in Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School when gunman Nikolas Cruz killed 17 people.

Fox News Channel's Laura Ingraham took a week's leave after apologizing via social media for her tweet that Hogg had "whined" about not getting in to some colleges he had applied for.

Hogg, meanwhile, said it's "time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children". Another student, Emma Gonzalez, has been falsely depicted in a doctored photo tearing up the Constitution.

Though Allman had criticized Hogg before, his violent tweet caught the attention of Missouri Democratic state Rep. Stacey Newman, who called on advertisers to boycott Allman's show. "They need us to stand up for them".

Sinclair is the largest owner of TV channels in the US and has been seen as pushing a conservative message on its channels - including in recent weeks, when it asked its anchors across the nation to read the same speech warning against "biased and false news".

"I am disappointed that my old friend has fallen into this conspiracy theory subculture", Jeff Kasky said Monday.

Allman also served a six-month stint in 2004 and 2005 as chief spokesman for then-St. A request for comment from the station was not immediately returned.
