David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA...totally predictable given acceptance rates.) https://t.co/wflA4hWHXY— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) March 28, 2018
You know David Hogg as a leader in the flourishing #Our Lives Matter movement. Is it possible to possess a rational mind and fail to recognize the downside and gutter cesspool acts of attacking a 17-year-old who dares speak out against the guns Americans gun culture?  

How did the 17-year-old activist respond?  He responded as a person with social media wherewithal, rational thought processes and the activist he responded with a huge weapon. A weapon which carried a stinging lesson for consumer products companies which advertise on Fox News.  His Twitter response. 

After Hogg took to his Twitter account with an exhortation to flood Ingraham's advertisers with concerns about their support for the Fox News demagogue, show advertisers quickly responded. Yesterday afternoon four advertisers dropped the show; as of this morning, eight advertisers have withdrawn ads from the demagogue's show.

Of course, Americans who are of rational mind know Laura Ingraham is a far-right demagogue who can find no wrong in anything Trump, nor any wrong in anything anti-NRA or anything pro-gun restrictions.  Those same Republicans know more about Ingraham. She now has a show on FOXPEN (Fox Propaganda and Entertainment Network) as well as a radio show.  If you are aware of the daily propaganda mission of Trump's most admired TV network you know she is now on Fox solely due to the firing of the network's former flagship demagogue, Bill O'Reilly. 

Ingraham fills O'Reilly ratings laden Fox broadcasts slot like an expensive leather glove. She feeds Right-wing viewer propaganda sponges comparable to O'Reilly with a slightly less inclination for on-air racism.  While she is less inclined towards weekly forays into feeding the bigoted minds of Fox News viewers, she never misses a beat when she finds an opportunity. How better to tickling her Twitter audience while offering favored remarks to the NRA than to attack one of the now very visible Parkland Shooting survivors?

Cable news has covered Ingraham's grotesque tweet, but as is generally the case MSNBC exceeds other networks in exposing the Fox News underbelly.  I don't believe there is an on-camera response to Ingraham which surpasses the scope and depth of comments from Republican Steve Schmidt (MSNBC contributor). 

"Another example of an adult acting terribly". MSNBC contributor Steve Schmidt (Republican..Correction: rational Republican)



Of the 13 advertisers posted in Hoog's Twitter post, nine have to return corporate decency via dropping Ingraham. O'Reilly was fired from Fox News due to an avalanche of fleeing advertisers. Wonder how long FOXPEN with value Ingraham's entertainment potential as the day progresses?

Let's end with a segment from The Last Word (it includes additional comments about Ingraham's advertisers) along with a quick segment regarding #OurLives Matter as we move towards the November mid-term elections. Steve Kornacki and potential election impact (poll data).
