Posted on 03/29/2018 12:40:17 PM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines
Laura Ingraham, a Fox News host, apologized under pressure on Thursday for taunting a survivor of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., as three companies confirmed they would pull advertising from her show.
The dispute began Wednesday when Ms. Ingraham shared an article about the student, David Hogg, 17, getting rejected from some of the colleges to which he had applied and accused him of whining about it.
In response, Mr. Hogg, who has rapidly become a prominent advocate for gun-control policies, called on Ms. Ingrahams advertisers to boycott her show. Three of the companies, TripAdvisor, Wayfair and Nutrish, said Thursday they would pull their ads.
As news of the boycotts began coming out on Thursday, Ms. Ingraham apologized.

You can’t appease people that hate you.
Extremely bad move on her part. All she did was further empower Hitler-boy and, indeed, rather than accept her apology, he’s doubling down and demanding she “condemn Fox News.”
I’m disappointed in Laura.
The attention-seeker deserved it. I’m with Laura on this one.
I’ll be boycotting her because she caved to the little sh!t.
survivor my ass he wasn’t even at the school at the time of the shooting
“...survivor of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla...”
Seeing as how he admits he wasn’t at all on campus when this went down, it means ALL OF US in the country are “survivors of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla “
Folded like a renaissance triptych.
She doesn’t understand that by bowing to thugs, you embolden them even more.
the 3 companies that buckled to Herr Hogg I don’t use anyway but never will
Don’t ever apologize. The left only views them as an admission of guilt.
Yep. They never learn. Never. She is a smart and competent person, but she should know this.
Laura should be going after the people hiding behind this a**hole.
She shouldn’t have apologized. He’s out there calling people out like an adult, he needn’t cry that he’s “just a child” if people hit back.
Only about 75% of us (under 45 y.o.) are survivors in the CHOICE murder racket.
Looks like the 25 year old punk got the best of Ingraham.
I can’t see how he graduates from highschool. How can he get into college without a HS degree?
Wasn’t it revealed this kid wasn’t even at school that day?
Perhaps I’m confusing him with someone else.
