Laura Ingraham took a vacation shortly after her controversy with Parkland’s David Hogg. Many were worried that it was the end for Ingraham, similar to how Bill O’Reilly ‘took a vacation’ right before his firing. Fox News finally released a statement determining Laura Ingraham’s fate.
The conflict all began when Ingraham accused David Hogg of whining about not getting into his choice colleges. David Hogg immediately called for all of Ingraham’s sponsors to be boycotted. Many of these giant companies caved in to the high schoolers demands.
““We’d like to confirm that we are no longer advertising on Laura Ingraham’s show and are monitoring all of our ad placements carefully,” wrote Hulu. , “We have no plans to buy ads on the show in the future,” wrote Nestle.
“The decision of an adult to personally criticize a high school student who has lost his classmates in an unspeakable tragedy is not consistent with our values. We do not plan to continue advertising on this particular program,” wrote Wayfair. Even though Ingraham apologized, Hogg refused to accept.
However, Fox News responded. “We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts. We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back hosting her program next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children,” wrote Fox News Co-President Jack Abernethy. That is good news!
