Laura Ingraham’s Advertisers Slip-Sliding Away

March 30, 2018

There is much to smile about as young people continue to show what can be done with spunk and spine.  And social media.

We can now add Expedia and Nestle to the list of brands pulling their advertising from Laura Ingraham‘s Faux News show. Parkland school shooting survivor and gun control advocate David Hogg tweeted a list of 13 of Ingraham’s advertisers Wednesday night asking his followers to reach out to the companies. They did.

Wow–how they did and then some!

The reaction stems from comments on her show Monday night, where Ingraham included a clip of Hogg from the March for Our Lives in which he said, “to those voters that supported the NRA that allowed the continued slaughter of our children and our future, I say, get your resumes ready.” To that, Ingraham sarcastically added, “Oooh… who wrote that line?” Then, Wednesday morning, she tweeted a DailyWire story about how Hogg had been “rejected by four colleges to which he applied.”

I need to mention here how many of those who watch Faux News never even attempted to attend college.  Or would have been accepted had they tried.

Following an online backlash and the loss of advertisers, Ingraham apologized Thursday morning for the tweet.   But I agree with Hogg in not being impressed with Ingraham’s apology. #ShutUpAndBeObjective,” he tweeted Thursday afternoon.

But Hogg should know better than to think Faux News has any sense of objectivity.  Hogg added he will not accept her apology until she denounces “the way your network has treated my friends and I in this fight” describing it as “mudslinging at children.”

Love spunk and spine.

Imagine if Republican members of congress found it and stood up to the NRA?
