Major Advertiser walks away from Fox Ingraham Show

❝ At least one major advertiser has dropped Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show in the wake of her comments on Monday about immigrant children separated from their parents. With advertising time on the conservative daily talk show down since Monday night, it’s possible that other companies have also bailed on “The Ingraham Angle.”

…The day after Ingraham’s statements, David Hogg, a survivor of the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, called on advertisers, including IAC, to boycott Ingraham, a reprise of the highly successful boycott campaign he launched against her in April, after she insulted him on Twitter.

During her show on Monday night, Ingraham described the detention centers for immigrant children separated from their parents on the Mexican border as “essentially like summer camps,” further comparing them to “boarding schools.”

❝ The previous dust-up between Ingraham and Hogg sprouted from her mocking the Parkland survivor and gun-control activist for lamenting on Twitter how he had been rejected from some colleges. Though Ingraham’s advertising has recovered somewhat from that boycott campaign — which saw companies like Bayer, TripAdvisor, Expedia, Nestlé and Hulu drop the show — her advertising load had not reached her previous levels.

Creeos who make their living from advocating against human rights get what they deserve. Sometimes.

    “New Mexico lawyer faces death threat over work for immigrants” http://nmpoliticalreport.com/859010/new-mexico-lawyer-faces-death-threat-over-work-for-immigrants/
    On April 24, Fox News ran a segment on “The Ingraham Angle” that the lawyer says broadly mischaracterized her work.
    Laura Ingraham opened the April 24 segment by saying, “We have also learned — this is curious — that American attorneys have traveled southward to meet with migrants to instruct them on their rights to apply for asylum in the United States. We did some digging and, according to reports, two of these lawyers are Allegra Love of Santa Fe Dreamers Project and Marie Vincent, who also works for a small 501(c)3 organization.”
    “The problem for the attorneys helping the members of the caravan could be the U.S. law,” Ingraham said, quoting a federal statute that prohibits citizens from inducing a foreign national to enter the U.S. illegally.
    Then Ingraham made an accusation: “If these attorneys are holding what is being described as these large-group seminars and demonstrate intent to skirt the laws or to help the migrant skirt the laws, well, they could be in jeopardy at least technically.”
