Fox News' Ingragham Continues To Suffer Advertiser Abandonment

Image result for laura ingrahamA few weeks ago, Fox News, Laura Ingraham, demagogue entertained her seething audience with this tidbit about Parkland survivor. Apparently, Hogg previously mentioned he was busy applying to colleges and he stated he had recovered a few rejection letters.  He issued an innocent and honest remark which is pretty much common among most high school students who apply to colleges. College rejection letters are almost as common as the old school employment rejection letter (albeit a relic of the past).

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.)

Rational Americans should only view Ingraham's tweet as a form of bullying a young kid who has dared to speak out against gun violence and school shootings. Hoog has even stated his parents own a gun (s), and his activism is against weapons which are currently available to millions who shouldn't have access (18 years old with a trobling AR-15). Ultimately the question is why was it important for a television personality to go after the teen.  In addition to common conservative dogma, one can also assume Ingraham was tickling, and enticing, her twitter followers who comprise a Fox News audience so necessary for earning millions in compensation she receives via a common formula. A formula as such: television and radio thrive off viewers who view advertisements which provide revenue for networks, shows, and channels.  The formula which led to the firing of Bill O'Reilly as news of his sexual abuse and harassment of women led to a dissipated advertiser base.  Yes. advertisers rule in television. The nation's number one purveyor of "news" without veracity offers entertainment important the largest of all cable news networks.

If you are not a viewer and subscriber to Fox News, you know the network isn't a traditional news network. It is without question a communications network for the GOP, white privilege and a pure communications department for Donald Trump. If you are a regular viewer or subscriber to Fox News messaging you know that one of your favorites hosts was assigned to an emergency, and previously unannounced, vacation after tweeting a silly and childish message about a nationally recognized survivor (and activist) of the Parkland shooting.

Ingraham fell victim to her own dedication to demagoguery, bullying, and devotion to Trump.  She fell into a self-crafted Generation X minefield only understood by Millenials and social media savvy Americans. 

The tech-savvy teenager responded as a true #Resistance combatant: Thinking, strategy, and execution with available weapons.

The saga continues and Ingraham's managers and producers have to now live-in a tsunami of dissonance as to what to do with a dwindling sponsor base.

Social Media site, The Wrap, maintains an up-to-date cataloging of Ingraham sponsors who have left or are leaving the show.  Just this week a couple of flagship sponsors left the show.
