Advertisers Ditch Fox News Host Accused of 'Crossing the Line of Decency'

Laura Ingraham Apologizes As Advertisers Bail Over Mockery Of Parkland Survivor

David Hogg: These Are the Laura Ingraham Advertisers Targeted by Parkland Shooting Survivor

Ingraham on her show Friday night described the vacation as a pre-planned break with her children for the Easter holiday. "As always, he's welcome to return to the show anytime for a productive discussion", she concluded.

Fox News Host Laura Ingraham will be taking a vacation next week amid an ongoing feud with David Hogg, a high school senior who survived the Parkland shooting last month. TripAdviser did too, with reports Wayfair was about to follow suit.

Hogg took aim at the host's show, "Ingraham Angle", after she taunted him on Twitter on Wednesday, accusing him of whining about being rejected by four colleges to which he had applied.

Liberty Mutual chief executive David Long wrote in a message to employees that Ingraham's comments were "inconsistent with our values as a company, especially when it comes to treating others with dignity and respect".

The Conservative host has since apologised for her feud with the teenager.

Eleven companies have said they are pulling ads from Laura Ingraham's programme after 17-year-old David Hogg tweeted a call for a boycott.

The controversy started earlier in the week when Ingraham blew some serious smoke at David Hogg on Twitter.

"On reflection, in the spirit of Holy Week, I apologize for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the fearless victims of Parkland", Ingraham tweeted, adding that Hogg had appeared on her show the night of the shooting that left 17 dead. At one point, she directed a reporter to infiltrate a meeting of the campus LGBT group and record students' conversations.

Ingraham apologized Thursday on Twitter, saying, "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".

Hogg told CNN in an interview on Friday that he doesn't plan to accept her apology. On Thursday, Ingraham offered an apology, though she did not mention anything about her show's hemorrhaging revenue.

They could also try to use their unmatched sway over red-state America by organizing counter-boycotts, just to show the corporate class that they're prepared to hit back the next time their advertisers consider bowing to left-wing pressure.

Office Depot was one of the latest companies to pull ads from Ingraham's show. "In our view, these statements focused on a high school student cross the line of decency".

Hulu, the online video streaming service, said on Twitter it was "no longer advertising on Laura Ingraham's show" and was "monitoring all of our ad placements carefully".

"As a company, we support open dialogue and debate on issues", Wayfair public relations director Jane Carpenter told CNBC. A Fox News representative was not immediately available for comment.
