Original story:

Rumblings that Tomi Lahren has been permanently banned from Glenn Beck's TheBlaze emerged as the anchor's one-week suspension draws to an end.

"Glenn is reminding the world of his conservative principles by sidelining Tomi after she insulted conservatives by calling them hypocrites," a Beck insider told Page Six. "He's trying to balance being a leading conservative thinker and also someone who can unify the country."

"He just couldn't sit by and watch as Tomi Lahren said there's no way for conservatives to justify anything other than being pro-choice," the source said.

According to the report, Beck is trying to "reinvent himself" after burning "too many bridges," and feels that Lahren is hurting the brand with her recent controversial comments on "The View."

During Lahren's first appearance on "The View," she said: "I'm for limited government, stay out of my guns and stay out of my body as well. I get a lot of attacks from conservative women as well. Equal hate from all sides for me!"

In the days after her appearance, she clarified on Twitter that she is, in fact, pro-choice.

"I have moderate, conservative, and libertarian views. I'm human. I will never apologize, to anyone, for being an independent thinker," she wrote on Twitter. "Listen, I am not glorifying abortion. I don't personally advocate for it. I just don't think it's the government's place to dictate."

Beck took Lahren to task over her defense on Twitter. "Wait, libertarian views? Help me out on Trumpcare, stimulus, and executive orders. Trump is anything but libertarian," Beck fired back on his Twitter page.

On his radio show, Beck confessed that even though he and Lahren don't see eye to eye on all things, he doesn't hire "sycophants."

"If you're pro-choice, you can have a job at The Blaze," he said. "I don't hire people who are sycophants," said Beck. "I try to hire people who have a different opinion. I don't want straw men. The Blaze cannot be about me, me, me, me. It’s no secret that Tomi and I don't agree on quite a lot, but that is about personalities."
