Laura Ingraham is taking a 'preplanned vacation' as advertisers flee her show

Screen Shot 2018 03 30

The Fox host said she will be spending the Easter break with her kids and The Ingraham Angle will be manned by a slate of guest hosts while she is out...

Ingraham's vacation announcement conveniently comes in the wake of 11 of her advertisers (at last count) boycotting her show due to a call from Parkland student David Hogg.

Nearly a year ago, more than 50 advertisers yanked their spots from Bill O'Reilly's Fox News show after it emerged that O'Reilly, Fox and its parent company had paid $13 million to settle five sexual harassment lawsuits.

"She's tried calling out people at Dartmouth University for their sexual orientation and she told Lebron James to shut up and dribble", Hogg said on CNN.

"(Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA...totally predictable given acceptance rates.)" she wrote, before linking to an article that called Hogg a "gun rights provocateur".

Ingraham on Wednesday posted a mocking tweet of high school senior David Hogg, taunting him for not getting into some colleges he had applied to.

Hogg responded to Ingraham's original comments by tweeting a list of her advertisers and urging his followers to contact them.

Salman's attorneys argued that their client was not an accomplice but a simple-minded victim of her husband's infidelity and lies. The revelation threatened to upend the case against Salman, but the judge denied the motion, saying it was not relevant.

"On reflection, in the spirit of Holy Week, I apologize for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the courageous victims of Parkland", she wrote.

On Thursday, Ingraham tweeted an apology "in the spirit of Holy Week", saying she was sorry for any hurt or upset she had caused Hogg or any of the "brave victims" of Parkland.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham delivers a speech 2016 Republican National Convention. It's time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children.

The mea culpa didn't suffice for Hogg, who demanded that Ingraham also denounce comments made by others on her network before he would accept her apology.

Ingraham apologized, but Hogg blasted it as an insincere "effort just to save your advertisers".

"As always, he's welcome to return to the show anytime for a productive discussion", Ingraham said.

In response, Hogg, who has called for stricter gun regulations after the February 14 massacre at his high school, called on advertisers to boycott Ingraham's show.
