    Question "HLN's virago of vengeance"

    Hello,

    The following sentence is from an article in NY Times, called 'A Sordid Cast of Characters Around Casey Anthony'. What is the meaning of 'HLN's virago of vengeance'?
    I looked up 'virago', so I know that it means
    1. A domineering, violent, or bad-tempered woman.
    2. A woman of masculine strength or spirit; a female warrior.
    But, I don't know what HLN refers to.
    She was not randomly singled out by the news media — not even by Nancy Grace, HLN’s virago of vengeance.

    Thank you
