OutKick personality Tomi Lahren was at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque Thursday night and required a state police escort after a group entered the auditorium where she was speaking, chanting “F**k Tomi Lahren.” 

She had been speaking in the auditorium leading, resulting in Lahren, her father, and the members of the TPUSA chapter barricading themselves in a back room as campus police called for backup.

“The university knew there was going to be a planned protest,” Lahren told Outkick on Friday. “There was a banner going around social media for days, especially yesterday, leading up to the event. 

“They knew that it was going to be bad. They knew that Antifa was involved. They knew that it was going to be an organized protest against my speech. They did nothing.”

Additionally, Lahren shared details of the situation in the auditorium after the group forced her and others to barricade while backup arrived to help escort them out.

“It took the fire alarm being pulled, and violence happening for the campus PD to call in state police in Albuquerque to respond,” Lahren added. “But they have to do that on their own because the university did nothing.”

“They didn’t care. They didn’t care that we were stuck in that room. They didn’t care that people were trying to bang through the doors and busted the glass to get into us. They didn’t care. So, the fact that the university, as someone got hurt last night, that’s on them. And that’s just a pretty disgusting thing to think, that you’ve got students, that you don’t care that they are getting attacked by other students and members of the general public. And the university didn’t do anything.”

The changes at CNN continue as the network’s Senior Editor of Media, An Phung, announced on Wednesday via Twitter that she would leave her position. 

Phung has spent the last five and a half years on the media desk, working closely with reporter Oliver Darcy, managing editor Alex Koppelman, and former “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter. 

“I am sad to announce that I will be leaving CNN,” Phung tweeted. There isn’t enough room here to praise all the people who made it a great place to work. 

“And there are so many people to thank for helping me tell good and important stories about the threats against journalism and democracy.”

She didn’t reveal when her last day at CNN will be; however, Phung is “spending my remaining time at CNN expressing my gratitude to them.” During her time at the media desk, Phung has credited Darcy, Koppelman, and Stelter for making her a stronger editor. 

Phung didn’t disclose what’s next for her career and, for now, is reflecting on her time at CNN, considering having a background as a refugee. 

“For a kid born on a refugee boat, a prestigious job at CNN was never a given,” Phung tweeted. “Then to be able to work with some of the most brilliant journalists in the industry—this job has just exceeded my biggest and boldest childhood dreams. I am living proof of what is possible.”

FOX Nation announced that it is expanding its library of “COPS” shows with new episodes starting next week.

In a release, the network said the new season will premiere with the first three 20-minute episodes dropping on September 30th, followed by a new offering debuting every Friday at 6 PM/ET throughout the fall.

“It has been nearly one year since we greenlit COPS and the reaction has been positively overwhelming,” said Jason Klarman, president of the streaming service.

FOX Nation will continue to offer a free, one-year subscription to all first responders, including police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians and paramedics (EMS personnel).
 
“Our subscribers continue to flock to the series, and we’re excited to provide our engaged audience with more of the exclusive content they have come to rely on from FOX Nation,” added Klarman.

Last year, the Paramount Network canceled “COPS” following the murder of George Floyd. In reviving the series, Fox Nation has also picked up an additional 15 episodes from the 32nd season.

Cenk Uygur, the host of “The Young Turks,” is defending his decision to have radio host Dennis Prager on his Thursday show. 

When pressed about having Prager, Uygur stated that their program isn’t afraid to have an alternative view which is what the traditional media does in his eyes. 

“Because we’re not afraid of right-wingers and we don’t view media as an a**-kissing exercise, like traditional media does,” Uygur tweeted.

“If you think afterward we didn’t sufficiently challenge him, then rip us. But you assume we’re not going to challenge him because you’re used to soft media.”

The episode with Prager goes live at 6 p.m. ET on Thursday and Uygur didn’t reveal what they’ll discuss with the radio host, but he did state that the show “should be a dynamic conversation, to say the least!”

Whatever they discuss, there are plenty of ongoing situations in the country to debate, whether it’s the immigration issue with governors facing backlash for political stunts to the upcoming midterm elections that are right around the corner.
