David Hogg is one of those people that could be going about what he is attempting to do a totally different way if his inentions were pure.
The problem with that is that his intentions aren't exactly pure. If someone disagrees with his position or tries to say that they think the Boy Wonder is wrong, he tries to get them fired from their job.
Laura Ingraham isn’t someone who holds back or worries about what other people think.
That’s why many thought it was refreshing when she went after David Hogg the other day. Hogg has inserted himself into the spotlight following the Parkland shooting and he’s been incredibly rude to people that disagree with him on gun control.
Laura Ingraham mocked Hogg for not being accepted into several colleges and you can see why.
He has been paraded around by the liberal media as an expert on gun control and the smartest person in the room when it comes to guns. It’s not that crazy that Laura felt the need to point out that maybe this guy isn’t the brainiac the media is making him out to be.
It’s terrible what happened to him. But, that doesn’t mean no one is allowed to criticize him. Here’s what happened to Laura after she called out Hogg.
David responded by listing Fox News advertisers and urging his Twitter supporters to call for a boycott of her program “The Ingraham Angle.” Ingraham issued a tweet apologizing for remarks about David, but the student-turned-gun control activist did not accept it.
Advertisers have been leaving the show since last Thursday to protest Ingraham’s remarks while other sponsors have steered clear of her program so as not to be associated with the controversy.
Hogg not only rejected her apology (that she should never have made) but he continued to call for advertisers to pull money from her show. That’s bullying. Plain and simple.
On Monday, Fox News co-president spoke out about Laura’s future.
That’s big league.
From Variety: The note is unusual for a corporate executive to issue on behalf of a program host, but the situation swirling around Ingraham is anything but normal. The host announced Friday on her 10 p.m. program, “The Ingraham Angle,” that she would take a planned vacation even as scrutiny of her program intensified and more sponsors announced they were moving their ads out of the show.
Media buyers said late last week that advertisers had grown nervous about being associated with the show, even as they acknowledged its sizable audience. In February, “The Ingraham Angle” drew an average of more than 2.6 million viewers, according to Nielsen. Only Fox News’ “Hannity” and “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” attracted more viewers that month. With that following — Ingraham is also a longtime radio host — advertisers could find her program difficult to ignore.
Looks like that boycott backfired. Big time.
