It's been a rough few weeks for people who like their political news delivered in the most ear-piercingly shrill fashion possible.
Two of the most strident stalwarts in the world of far-right cable news have been silenced this month, but for very different reasons.
Bill O'Reilly appears to have left the No Spin Zone following revelations that the longtime Fox News personality shelled out more than $13 million to silence numerous women who accused him of sexual harassment in the workplace.
As more accusers continue to come forward, it's unclear if O'Reilly has been fired or simply suspended by the network.
Similarly murky is the future of The Blaze news-shouter Tomi Lahren.
Lahren says she's been fired by her network's weepy CEO, Glenn Beck, but she's still drawing a paycheck, and Beck claims she's simply on leave ... indefinitely.
The disciplinary action comes after dared to express an opinion that doesn't perfectly jibe with Beck's ideology, by stating on The View that she's pro-choice.
Lahren clearly has no patience for Beck's equivocation, and in a new Nightline interview, she chews out her (former?) boss for taking the "decisive" out of decisive action:
“This is not about politics,” she says.
“This is about someone who had an opposing viewpoint that has been silenced and sidelined and thrown away.”
“I'm a human being at the end of the day and something has been stripped from me and that's my ability to work, that’s my ability to have a voice."
“That's been taken from me wrongfully. So I’m upset by it, and I’m hurt by it and I feel betrayed by it.”
She concludes with a blistering "final thought" that no doubt has the tears welling up in Beck's eyes at this very moment:
“I'm not the kind of girl that sits in the corner and cries about things. And that's another message I really want to get across,” Lahren said.
“I don't consider myself a feminist but boy I will not lay down and play dead ever.”

It's even better if you picture Beck sobbing into a pint of Ben & Jerry's while he watches it:
