Laura Ingraham Has Lost 3 Of Her Top 12 Advertisers To David Hogg’s Boycott

Three of the top 12 advertisers on Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show have bolted in response to a boycott that was caused by the host attacking Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg.

Ingraham tweeted about Hogg:

Hogg responded by calling for a boycott of the advertisers of Ingraham’s Fox News show:

So far, three of Ingraham’s top 12 advertisers have pulled their ads off of her show. Trip Adviser, Wayfair, and Nutrish have all announced that they will not be advertising on her show.

Ingraham responded to the growing boycott, and threat to her Fox News gig with an apology:

Of course, that wasn’t a real apology. It was the typical I apologize if I upset anyone apology that doesn’t take any ownership of what she said, but Ingraham does give herself plenty of credit.

The Parkland kids aren’t afraid. They are mustering a non-partisan force in our culture that is bigger than Fox News, the Republican Party, and the NRA. Ingraham didn’t apologize because she was wrong. She apologized because one-quarter of her advertisers have bolted in less than a day. Nothing will get a Fox News host canned faster than an advertiser boycott.

Laura Ingraham is already losing in the ratings to MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell. A stronger advertiser boycott could quickly get her thrown off of the air and banished back to AM talk radio Siberia.

The free market will not tolerate extremist hosts who attack victims of gun violence. It is going to take more than a semi-apology for Laura Ingraham to save her job.
