Sinclair show canceled after commentator's vulgar tweet about Parkland
survivor David Hogg

        A conservative commentator at a Sinclair Broadcast Group
        television station has resigned -- and his TV news show has
        been canceled -- after a statement he made threatening to
        sexually assault Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg drew
        harsh criticism and sparked the beginnings of an advertiser
        boycott. Jamie Allman, who hosted a nightly show on the
        Sinclair-owned ABC affiliate in St. Louis, wrote on Twitter
        that he was "hanging out getting ready" to sexually assault
        Hogg with "a hot poker." "Busy working. Preparing," read the
        March 26 tweet, which is too vulgar to reprint in full.

Typical Trump supporter. Belongs in a small cage.
