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.
