Laura Ingraham Loses Advertising Over Controversial Migrant Center Remarks

Laura Ingraham, Fox News host of The Ingraham Angle, stated earlier this week that the facilities housing migrant children who have been taken from their parents are “essentially summer camps”. In her report she also quoted the San Diego Union-Tribune who called the facilities “basically boarding schools.”

Which inspired Parkland survivor David Hogg to once again go after Ingraham’s sponsors:

And others joined in:

Many of Hogg’s followers cheered him on:

And this time, InterActiveCorp. (IAC) responded by pulling ads from two of its companies, Home Advisor and Angie’s List. 

This is the second time Hogg has called for a boycott of The Ingraham Angle, the first time was earlier this year when Ingraham mocked Hogg for not being accepted into all of the colleges he applied for.

But Hogg’s haters were plentiful, of course:

Fox remains loyal in defending Ingraham’s comments stating, “Fox News will never tolerate or give in to attempts to silence diverse viewpoints by agenda-driven intimidation efforts.” 

Both US and world history has shown us that detention centers of any kind are dangerous. Comments like Ingraham’s that attempt to equate these centers with fun-filled summer camps encourage people to ignore what is actually happening. Let’s hope it doesn’t work.
