Laura Ingraham Starts Losing Advertisers After Attacking David Hogg

Laura Ingraham is starting to lose advertisers after she tweeted out a link to an article mocking Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg for not getting into some of the colleges he applied to. The backlash against her has been swift - she's human garbage and bullying a kid on Twitter shows how scared the right wing is that their message of not wanting more kids to die is resonating louder than the NRA's rhetoric.

For years I thought Ingram was "Doctor Laura" because I didn't know the other's surname was Schlessinger.

Not that I much care that there's a distinction... they're both profoundly horrible people.

Why couldn't I have been raised in a family with siblings like that?

They will just package it as the left refusing to allow muh "freedom of speech". They will continue to say that the survivors of Parkland are either deluded, manipulated by adults, communist, etc..

They will retire into their bubble quite secure in themselves and quite secure in their viewers who will not see any different as Fox is all they watch.

This piece of shit had the unmitigated gall to bitch to people insisting they leave Barron Trump alone because he is a minor.

Yet she attacked a minor who doesn't share her world view.

Such a fucking hypocrite.

My housemate has one of those too. It just personal for me, and its a long standing one - though, I am glad they are doing the right thing, and maybe they have a change in management that's doing more ethical things now?

Ingraham is one of those "smart" types who likes to "score" a point every chance she gets.

She never heard that honesty (her version) without kindness is cruelty. She makes a lot of digs at people for their appearance too--- which is disgusting.

Hogg isn't my cup of tea but attacking anyone for their college acceptance when so much of that is luck once you meet a certain level. If you are the cello player they need that year- great- cello number 10, not so much.

I wonder why no has has marched on the Justice Dept for the Promise Program that may have kept that sick puppy in school and no march on the doctors who didn't try to get him held for treatment.

Or research on what , if any meds , all these shooters have in common.

Look forward to seeing where her kids get accepted in a few years .

It's not so easy as that, though. Since advertisers are refusing to have their ads aired during her programmes, keeping her on, rather than replacing her in that time slot with a commentator who is somewhat less toxic to advertisers is costing Fox money.

Perhaps they do value her freedom of speech above their own revenue stream. Time will tell.

Am I the only one who had to Google "Laura Ingraham"? I literally had no idea who she was until just now.

No.

And I still don't know who she is. Don't want to either. She's a cunt. That's all I need to know.

She's the donkey-witch that saluted Trump in a particular way at the Republican Convention. Which was probably just an accident, or a coincidence, or she's just a really astute historian on the Roman Empire like Mary Beard:

Arby's hasn't left her show yet. I'd boycott them easily, if by boycott we mean "never eat there again, which I wasn't planning to do anyway".

After a quick check, the Roark Investment group also owns Buffalo Wild Wings, Hardees, Carls Jr., Maaco, Seattle's Best (coffee), Cinnabon, Millers Ale House and Corner Bakery Cafe (among others).

Though it's unlikely to pull ads if this article is any indication:
