Is Tomi Lahren getting ousted from The Blaze?

The Daily Caller says The Blaze TV, the conservative media company behind Tomi Lahren’s show “Tomi,” has suspended her show for “at least one week, starting Monday,” according to their sources.

Lahren created a minor storm of controversy after the contentious commentator revealed that she was pro-choice. In an interview on “The View,” Lahren insisted that it’s not ideologically sound to believe in limited government while advocating for government-mandated abortion restrictions. In the same interview, she called out conservatives who opposed government intrusion while maintaining intrusive laws on abortion as “hypocrites.”

Coupled with her famously aggressive rhetoric that’s gotten her in trouble with coworkers before, Lahren’s comments may have been the last straw for her at the media company. The Daily Caller reports that though her contract runs through September, she may depart the company before then.

  • From UGA Sports Communications ATHENS, Ga. --- The No. 16 Georgia softball team (27-7) shut out Georgia Southern (15-16) in a midweek tilt after taking the 8-0 win in six innings on Wednesday at Jack Turner Stadium.   Sydni Emanuel paced the offense, going 3-for-4 with two runs scored and a RBI. Alyssa DiCarlo and Alysen Febrey each totaled a pair of RBI apiece. Georgia collected eight hits on the night, as Eagles’ pitcher Dixie Raley (9-11) took the loss after throwing 5.1 innings with six hits and six runs allowed.   Brittany Gray (17-4) threw the complete-game shutout, the fifth of her career and third of the season. The junior gave up five hits while walking three and striking out three. Georgia Southern put a runner in scoring position in each of the first three frames before Gray and the defense sat the Eagles down in order during the final three.   The Bulldogs put up two runs in the second off of a two-RBI double from Febrey before a bases-loaded walk to Sumerlin and sacrifice fly by Maeve McGuire had Georgia ahead 4-0 after three played. Georgia sealed the run-rule victory with four runs in the sixth, as Justice Milz, S. Emanuel and DiCarlo all recorded at least one RBI in the frame.   Georgia continues its homestand, as the Bulldogs welcome No. 5 Auburn this weekend. The series begins on Friday with a 6 p.m. ET first pitch on SEC Network+/WatchESPN. Admission to all home games is free.   HOW TO FOLLOW GEORGIA SOFTBALL: For complete information on Georgia softball, follow the team on its social media channels via @UGASoftball on Twitter and Instagram and UGASoftball on Facebook.
  • From UGA Sports Communications ATHENS, Ga. ---The Bulldogs exploded for six runs in the fourth inning to set the pace for Georgia’s 12-3 victory over Savannah State Tuesday night at Foley Field.   Georgia (11-15) scored a season-high 12 runs on a season-high 16 hits. Georgia utilized a staff day throwing 11 pitchers over the course of the game. The Bulldogs pitchers combined for 12 strikeouts and yielded three runs on eight hits. Right-handed reliever Shane Tucker picked up the win and improved to 1-0.   Coming to bat with the bases loaded, freshman Cam Shepherd (3-for-5, 3 RBI) delivered the big hit in the fourth by knocking a double into the left field corner. Preceding that was a Mitchell Webb (4-for-5, 2 RBI) RBI single and a two-run double by LJ Talley (4-for-5, 4 RBI). All the damage was done with no outs and the Tigers had to dip into the bullpen twice to end the inning.   The second high-scoring outburst for Georgia occurred in the sixth to a tone of four runs. Michael Curry (3-for-5, 3 RBI) smacked a double in the right-center field gap to score Shepherd and Keegan McGovern. Two batters later, Talley hit a towering two-run home run that landed on top of the right field scoreboard. The homer was Talley’s first of the season and second of his career.   The two teams exchanged blows in the first four innings before Georgia pulled away. Webb and Curry had two-out RBI singles in the second and third innings, respectively.     Dawg Tracks   *Freshman shortstop Cam Shepherd extended his career-high hitting streak 11 games. Shepherd was a home run short of the cycle. *Freshman third baseman Adam Schunk’s two singles lengthened his hitting streak to six games in a row. *Career-high four hits for junior Mitchell Webb and sophomore LJ Talley. Webb also swiped his first bag of the season. *Freshman centerfielder Tucker Maxwell reached base for the 20th time in the last 21 games on a hit-by-pitch. In the same inning, he stole second for his fifth theft this season. * Junior Will Campbell drew two walks in the game to up his season total to 11 free passes. *Sophomore Michael Curry and freshman Cam Shepherd lead the team in multi-hit at-bats with nine on the season.   Coach’s Corner Ike Cousins Head Baseball Coach Scott Stricklin   “We got a lot of guys in there, we threw 11 pitches so that has to be a close to a record. I thought our intensity level was very good. We had some big innings and scored a lot of runs. Cam Shepherd and Michael Curry drove some guys in. We had a lot of guys contribute offensively. Mitchell Webb and LJ Talley were great. They have had a little bit of a slow start but they are veteran guys for us. They made the most out of their opportunities tonight and that is how you get more opportunities going forward.”   On getting up early…   “It looses things up for sure when you get an early lead. We went up 8-2 then we started walking guys and that was our message to our pitching staff – we have to be aggressive with the strike zone and make them earn everything. For the most part, we threw very, very well.”     Player’s Perspective   Sophomore second baseman LJ Talley #2   “I think we just had the offense going early, and we just kept the momentum going. I think that’s what we can do. I mean we did it last week against one of the top pitchers in the league. I just think we keep it rolling, and we need everything to come together in one piece, with pitching, defense and offense.”   On his two-run home run…   “There were two strikes on me, I was just trying to put a good swing on it. I didn’t swing as hard as I could or anything, I just tried to put a good swing on it. I think we had a really good approach today.   Up Next Georgia continues its SEC play at Tennessee this weekend, with the first game scheduled for 6 p.m. on Friday.
  • ATHENS – For years, Georgia’s head football and basketball coaches used to go on an extensive spring speaking tour, answering questions and shaking hands with fans who paid a small fee at the door. Those days of extensive touring around Georgia appear to be over. At least for now. The university has planned five events this spring featuring Kirby Smart, but they will be private donor events – and for now only one will be in the state of Georgia. The school will host events in Nashville, Charlotte, Jacksonville and Houston, with the lone in-state event being in Atlanta in July. These events will be closed to the public and the media, open only to donors. But there will also be two additional in-state events featuring Smart, athletics director Greg McGarity said Monday afternoon. Those events will just be branded differently. “We’re still working through two in-state events that would be branded under the Georgia Bulldog Club, or under UGA athletics,” McGarity said. In the past, Georgia football and basketball coach did as many as 12 spring tour stops, almost all in the state, from Columbus to Macon to Augusta and even smaller stops. But those tours have gradually dissipated: In Mark Richt’s final year, he only went to seven stops. Last year Smart went to five stops, though four of the were in-state, the exception being a donor event in Dallas. This year it’s going all-private, which someone with knowledge said evolved from Smart coming in with a new approach, and UGA wanting to do fundraising. There’s a feeling they don’t need the old model, where fans get a chance to hear from coaches and ask them questions, because of social media and other factors. Crowds at these events had also been going down. “The university is trying to be strategic to generate the money that everybody needs to generate right now,” McGarity said. “The purpose of these events have changed, they’ve morphed over the years.” The athletics department did seem to anticipate some fan blowback. “As for our donors, I realize there may be some sensitivity to the majority of the events being out of state this year,” associate athletics director for development Matt Borman wrote in an internal e-mail earlier this month. “If donors bring this up to you please just say that we are excited to be in Atlanta with an event in July and we wanted to take an opportunity this year to visit some of our supporters who don’t have the opportunity to make it to Athens on a regular basis. “After this year of events we will reevaluate and definitely consider bringing some of these events back into Georgia.” There are other speaking events for Smart that aren’t directly affiliated with the school. For instance, he is speaking Monday night at the Athens Touchdown Club, and spoke last month at the Macon Touchdown Club.
  • ATHENS, Ga. --- The University of Georgia women’s tennis team extended its win streak to six matches with a commanding 4-0 victory over Mississippi State Sunday afternoon at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex.   The Bulldogs (13-3, 7-1 SEC) continued to roll in doubles as they grabbed the point for the seventh-consecutive match. The 28th-ranked duo of Elena Christofi and Kennedy Shaffer clinched it on court two for the sixth time in the streak. In singles, Mariana Gould blew by her opponent 6-0, 6-1 followed by a Shaffer win at No. 3 and a clincher at the net by Christofi on court two.   “We are in the middle of this conference race and it's been tough every time we play all these schools,” Georgia head coach Jeff Wallace said. “I keep saying in the SEC we have 11 in the top 25 rankings and everybody comes ready to play. Mississippi State was another one of those teams. I thought the doubles point was great. Getting that 1-0 lead is critical for us. It was a good match and a great day and now we hit the road for the next three before we conclude our season here at home.” The shutout was Georgia’s fifth of the season. The Bulldogs have now rallied off six straight conference wins with four of those against teams in the top-25.   In doubles, the No. 2 court sat at 4-3 before Christofi/Shaffer finished the last two games strong to win 6-3 over Khrystyna Vozniak and Jennifer Brown. The Georgia twosome showcases a 6-1 record playing No. 2 and an 11-2 slate on the year.   Mississippi State (11-5, 4-4) started doubles with the lead after 11th-ranked tandem of Jasmine Lee and Lisa Marie Rioux edged No. 18 Ellen Perez and Caroline Brinson on court one. However, Gould and Marta Gonzalez evened up the score on court three winning 6-3 before Christofi and Shaffer secured the point.   In singles, junior Mariana Gould, ranked at No. 102, overpowered her opponent 6-0, 6-1 on the last court to put Georgia up 2-0. Gould, of Boise, Idaho, ups her win streak to five on court six where she has a 10-2 dual record.   The remaining singles matches featured two first-set tiebreakers and four that spilled into the third set. On court No. 3, Kennedy Shaffer edged Madison Harrison in the first-set tiebreaker 7-2, then carried that momentum into the second set winning 6-2.   In the battle of freshmen on court two eighth-ranked Christofi defeated Rioux in the deciding third set 6-1 to seal the win for the Bulldogs. The clincher was Christofi’s fourth on the season en route to a team-best 26-4 record.   Georgia was leading in two of the three remaining third-set matches that went unfinished. At No. 4, Brinson was on the verge of victory leading Anastasia Rentouli 5-0. After Perez dropped the first-set tiebreaker, she took the second set over 32nd-ranked Jasmine Lee and was up 2-1 when play was called.   “This year is going fast we got to keep working and stay excited and continue to compete like we're competing,” Wallace added.   The Bulldogs are back in action Saturday, April 1st at No. 23 Tennessee.

  • FROM UGA SPORTS COMMUNICATIONS  Athens, Ga. — For the second straight year, Georgia’s J.J. Frazier has been named the state of Georgia’s Men’s College Basketball Player of the Year by the Atlanta Tipoff Club. The club announced its annual award winners on Thursday. Frazier, 5-10, 155-pound senior from Glennville, Ga., led the Bulldogs and ranked among the SEC’s top-10 performers in scoring (third at 18.8 ppg), assists (fifth at 4.1 apg), steals (third at 1.9 spg) and playing time (first at 34.6 mpg). He finished the 2016-17 season with 640 points, the fourth-best mark in school history. Frazier set the Georgia career record for free throw percentage (.841). He had a school-record streak of 45 consecutive made free throws during his senior season, which is also the second-longest streak in SEC history. Frazier has collected a long list of accolades this season. He was named SEC and National Player of the Week on Week on Feb. 27 after averaging 28.5 points in wins over Alabama and LSU in a 49-hour span. Frazier was also voted first-team All-SEC by both league coaches and the Associated Press. He was named to All-District teams by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). UGA players have won Tipoff Club’s statewide honor 10 times since its inception in 1984. Frazier is just the second Bulldog to earn Georgia Player of the Year honors twice. Jarvis Hayes was honored following both the 2002 and 2003 seasons.  Vern Fleming was the award’s initial recipient in 1984, followed by Litterial Green in 1992, Jumaine Jones in 1999, Hayes in 2002 and 2003, Rashad Wright in 2004, Trey Thompkins in 2011, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in 2013 and Frazier in 2016 and 2017.
