Fox News Stands by Laura Ingraham, Slams ‘Agenda-Driven Intimidation Efforts’

On 04.03.18 07:55 AM posted by Peter Hasson

Laura Ingraham isn’t going anywhere.

That’s the message Fox News Channel is sending amid a left-wing boycott campaign meant to oust the conservative talk radio veteran and host of* the cable network’s “The Ingraham Angle”*over a tweet.

“We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts,” Fox News Co-President Jack Abernathy said in a statement to The Daily Caller News Foundation. “We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back, hosting her program next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children.”

Parkland, Florida, high school student and gun control activist David Hogg called for an advertiser boycott after Ingraham knocked him on Twitter for complaining about colleges that rejected his applications.

Ingraham apologized March 29 to Hogg, 17,* but he refused to accept the peace offering.

The* student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School teamed up with*left-wing activist group Media Matters*to pressure Ingraham’s advertisers into boycotting “The Ingraham Angle.” Over a dozen advertisers pulled their ads.

Ingraham is on a preplanned vacation this week that some liberals suggested was due to*the boycott.

Abernathy’s statement, which Fox News first*released*to the Los Angeles Times, made clear she’s staying put at Fox News.
