Hogg launched another boycott against Laura Ingraham on Tuesday for comparing dentention centers to “summer camps.”
Fox News has confirmed that Ingraham has lost one major advertiser since the boycott.
At least one major advertiser has dropped Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show in the wake of her comments on Monday about immigrant children separated from their parents. With advertising time on the conservative daily talk show down since Monday night, it’s possible that other companies have also bailed on “The Ingraham Angle.”
The media and internet company IAC will no longer be running ads for HomeAdvisor or Angie’s List on the show, an IAC spokesperson confirmed on Thursday. The day after Ingraham’s statements, David Hogg, a survivor of the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, called on advertisers, including IAC, to boycott Ingraham, a reprise of the highly successful boycott campaign he launched against her in April, after she insulted him on Twitter.
During her show on Monday night, Ingraham described the detention centers for immigrant children separated from their parents on the Mexican border as “essentially like summer camps,” further comparing them to “boarding schools.”
Between June 4 and 15, IAC was Ingraham’s second-biggest advertiser, according to Kantar Media, running 13 ads for HomeAdvisor. The company had already stopped airing ads for Match.com after Hogg’s previous boycott campaign.
A Fox News spokesperson said the network was unaffected by any loss in advertising resulting from Ingraham’s latest comments.
“There’s been no impact on our business, and new advertisers continue to opt in for our powerful prime-time lineup,” the spokesperson said.
David Hogg and his 15 minutes of fame should have been over a long time ago. This kid has zero life experience, but thinks he knows better than anyone.
