Lahren to Lignite Industry: Get Louder

Fox News Plans to Tell Coal Country’s Story

 

In a decidedly partisan message, conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren told attendees at this week’s Lignite Energy Council annual meeting they need to get vocal in defense of their industry. She also touted plans by Fox News to visit North Dakota to tell lignite's story to America.

Lahren, a Fox News commentator who grew up in South Dakota, said people who work in North Dakota’s lignite mines and power plants should be proud of the industry’s $3.4 billion impact in the state, and the more than $2 billion invested to protect the environment.

Lahren at age 25 is the youngest talk show host in television history. In her commentary, she has been a strong advocate for the fossil fuel industry. Lahren told the audience they should not be shy about promoting the economic importance of coal, and should vote to elect candidates who will defend it.

In a panel discussion that followed her speech, Lahren promised the crowd she and Fox News would return to the state to tell coal’s story because America is not getting it from the mainstream media.
