NEW YORK — The George Soros-financed Media Matters for America progressive activist group has been helping to fuel an advertising boycott targeting Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show following Twitter comments the media star made about Parkland shooting survivor and antigun activist David Hogg.
Think Progress, the media project of the Soros-funded Center for American Progress, has also been using its platform to hype the boycott.
On Thursday, Ingraham tweeted an apology to Hogg, expressing her regret “for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the brave victims of Parkland.”
Laura IngrahamAny student should be proud of a 4.2 GPA —incl. @DavidHogg111. On reflection, in the spirit of Holy Week, I apologize for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the brave victims of Parkland. For the record, I believe my show was the first to feature David….
… immediately after that horrific shooting and even noted how “poised” he was given the tragedy. As always, he’s welcome to return to the show anytime for a productive discussion. WATCH: https://youtu.be/K0v7yxczipo (2/2)
The “Ingraham Angle” host had earlier tweeted a Daily Wire story titled, “Gun Rights Provocateur David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied.” Ingraham added her own comment: “David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it.”

David Hogg, a self-appointed spokesman for a generation, revealed on Tuesday that four universities he has applied to have rejected his application.
Hogg immediately sprung to action, tweeting a list of Ingraham’s top 12 advertisers and promoting the hashtag #BoycottIngramAdverts.

Media Matters on Thursday jumped into the anti-Ingraham campaign, promoting a list of over 130 recent advertisers on the Fox News show.
Hogg himself retweeted the larger Media Matters list of Ingraham’s television advertisers.

AS OF FRIDAY NIGHT, 17 ADVERTISERS HAD PULLED THEIR ADS FROM THE INGRAHAM HOUR ON FOX NEWS.
Laura’s mistake was to apologize… NEVER APOLOGIZE to anyone who is a modern liberal, feminist, leftist/socialist, or any type of SJW activist. They are brainwashed to be a slave to their ideology, to never critically think their own POV’s and for them to to NEVER STOP PUSHING THEIR MISGUIDED, FLAWED and/or FAILING IDEOLOGY and will take an apology given to them and use it against you.
NO! DOUBLE DOWN AT BEST OR AT LEAST JUST IGNORE THEM even if what you said may be mean-spirited or even incorrect. These socialistic, liberal activists RUN NEAR ON 100% EMOTIONS! Irrational emotions fueled by a life of entitlement ideals and virtue signaling. By spitting at the feet of their feelings and their overblown sense of self grandeur and self righteousness you make them HURT and maybe this hurt may just have them FOR ONCE IN THEIR GOD FORSAKEN LIVES CRITICAL THINK THEIR MESSED UP, BRAINWASHED POV’s. They may then be open to meaningful dialogue, debate and maybe even take the RED PILL!
How do I know this? Well if you were to talk to me 5-6-7 or so years ago I was on the lefty side and a rather blind, modern liberal, a virtue signaler too. NO! I was never a total nut job SJW or such but I did do all lot of “I HEART ______________!” Over the last 5 years or so, I just finally began to see the light, got tired of my feelings being hurt by WHAT REALLY WAS COMMONSENSE! I BEGAN OPENING MY MIND TO DIALOGUE AND DEBATE and NOT just parrot the lefty-liberal, virtue signaling, idealism. I saw that the left and all of its ill allies NEVER CARED FOR ME NOR DO THEY FOR OTHERS! They just for most of my life drilled into me to give up of myself for the “ideal of others” but what is really the ideals of any and all leftist ideology. That is right, they only live to care for their bought and paid for leftist, SJW ideology. They all will happily destroy 6.9bilion lives to save maybe .1bilion out of a sense of duty to their total Marxist and all of its inter-sectional allied ideologies.
We are in a 21st. century battle for our futures.
LIBERTY, ACCOUNTABILITY, RESPONSIBILITY, JUSTICE, FREE CHOICE, FREE SPEECH, FREE EXPRESSION, FREE COMMERCE, THE POWER OF THE INDIVIDUAL AND HIS/HER PERSONAL CONTRACT TO OTHERS INCLUDING FREEDOM TO CHOOSE WHEN, HOW, WHAT, AND WHERE WE GIVE TO AND OF OURSELVES TO OTHERS! VERSUS, MARXISM, CULTURAL MARXISM, NO TRUE FREEDOM, NO TRUE FREE THOUGHTS, NO TRUE FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION, NO TRUE DESIRE FOR PERSONAL ADVANCEMENT and A BRAINWASHED IDEALISM OF GIVING/HAVING IT TAKEN AWAY OF ONESELF TO THE COLLECTIVE AND ITS ANTI-HUMAN IDEALISM… THE BEAST! YEP FOLKS THE BEAST!
The greatest lie ever told was that the Devil does not exist.
Any body have the list of sponsors that pulled ads
Time to boycott them
Soros still has to face war crime charges from WWII, maybe that’s how we can put a stop to his sedition
Ed Note: Companies who have pulled ads
So George Soros wants advertisers to boycott Laura Ingraham because she poked fun at Frankie Muniz…er, David Hogg’s intelligence (or lack thereof)? If that’s how they want it, the advertisers better not be surprised when they get boycotted themselves in return.
Not sure who is advising Ingraham but apologizing was the worst thing she could have done. Part of the MO from these activist Soros groups is to ask people to apologize and then wait. If they take the bait and apologize then they will say they dont accept the apology, it took too long or the apology is just being done to keep sponsors happy. etc etc.
Truth of the matter is the guy is whining. If he is upset that he cant get into every college he applies for then his beef should be with himself or the college.
Florida Students Just Gave David Hogg And His Crew The Middle Finger…”First Of Its Kind” It’s Happening!!!
Florida high school students walk out in support of second amendment, right to own guns
Ingraham simply stated her opinion like any Opinion Journalist, we can choose to listen or turn the Channel it is up to us.
Regardless of ones Political Brand we must all recognize that George Soros is a Clear and Present Danger to Democracy and he is a very Hateful and Manipulative Individual. Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with his past.
Hopefully the Ingraham Advertisers will have a change of Heart and if not I would fully agree that Consumers in turn Boyfott those same Advertisers that leave Ingraham.
The PC SJW Police are very active these days as they are aware that the Silent Majority is beginning to Push Back.
Let’s hope enough of us Push Back often enough that we encourage more of the Silent Majority to stand up against the PC Police.
Thanx for the listing of Soros type companies
I only use Nestle, but that train has left the tracks, flipped over and caught fire
AND I will be sending them an email asking why they accept their marching orders from a Nazi Collaborator from World War II intent on defiling the US constitution…
I’ve actually read it, and the founding fathers were years ahead of the game.
Think it’s high time 1984, 451F and Charlie Chaplin’s 1940 film the Greatest Dictator were MANDATORY!
The radical left is desperate. Look at Global/CKNW….nothing but ANTI-Trump everything. Anyone hear about the giant caravan of illegals marching to the US border? Of course you havent. Because the LEFT MARXIST GLOBALIST media will not do a story on it.
They are absolutely desperate to prevent their Marxist agenda from falling apart. Which it is now doing.
If these illegals marching towards the USA unopposed by Mexican govt. were in OLIVE GREEN uniforms the US govt. would deploy the US Military to stop including kill them as invaders. The US Govt. should enmasse deploy the US Army as a show of force at the border to stop these illegals. The only good thing from this globalist/elitist $hit show is it will re-enforce the idea/building of the Southern Wall.
Americans should in protest STOP vacationing in Mexico’s tourist areas.
Good points Les…….
However what I was trying to promote was the FAKE NEWS (global/cknw) is not reporting on the illegal caravan at all. Simi VACCINE promotor Sara and Gord NEW WORLD ORDER McDonald are too busy talking about Trump and weed.
Simi, Gord and all of the gang at NW are indoctrinated liberal, leftist stooges and blind sheep. They actually hate Trump, hate the USA, hate the Western Developed World because it cannot guarantee 100% equality. But it in the hands with checks and balances of good governance and men with good ideas and ideals will better protect liberty, responsibility, accountability, justice , the ability to find one’s own way and grow due to the ideal of free choice.
They all also self-loath by being born and raised in the privilege of the greatest society to ever grace this planet, The Western Developed World and a world led POST WWII by the USA the by design of its great, visionary, founding fathers is the greatest nation to ever come to existence WARTS AND ALL!
These people at NW and by many others in Canada and the Western world, are just so mad that they never suffered like the 85% or so of the rest of the world, that they want to figuratively self-flog to feel the pain of this 85% or so backwards world, rather than to celebrate all that the have received and have at their feet to spread this Western World grandeur to the messed up, backwards part of the world… It’s easier in their minds to cry out and to condemn Canada, more so especially the USA and the West in general than to work to share all we have to the 85% or so of the backwards world nations.
How do I know this? For many years of my adult life I was very much like them. I just decided to WAKE UP and see reality. The good, bad and indifferent parts of it all and not to remain living in LA LA LAND of pixi dust, unicorns and rainbows of liberal, leftist lies and their B.S. ideology.
LIFE IS NOT FAIR, NEVER WAS, NEVER WILL BE! SO GET OVER IT AND FREE YOURSELVES FROM THE BINDS OF SUCH A WANTED FALLACY OF FAIRNESS! Freedom can be dangerous but it is much better than any other choice.
Les H…so you consider Bennett, Campbell, Green and Allen liberal leftist stooges and blind sheep?
