On Tuesday night, FNC gave an update on the case of an Iraqi refugee with a criminal history who managed to escape deportation and recently went on to shoot a police officer in Colorado Springs. FNC have covered the story a number of times since Friday, but the other networks have completely ignored the tragic event. Ironically, on the same day that the attempted cop killing story broke, several networks did make time to undermine the Trump administration's push to deport illegal immigrants, this time by focusing on the wife of a pro-Trump veteran who was given a deportation order and left for Mexico.
On Tuesday morning, FNC continued to update viewers on the case of an illegal immigrant from Haiti, Wisner Desmaret, with a past criminal record who murdered a Florida police officer after managing to avoid deportation for years. The other networks continued to ignore the story even as ABC and CBS ran full reports on Tuesday morning on the case of Thurman Blevins, who was killed recently by Minneapolis police.
As the midterm elections on November 6 draw ever nearer, liberal Democrats are attempting to boost their morale after being pounded unexpectedly by Republican candidate Donald Trump two years ago. During Monday evening’s program of The Ingraham Angle, the Fox News Channel host and conservative guest Ben Shapiro pointed to two “imaginary stories,” one in which Trump wins re-election since the Democrats had no one who could beat him -- or he learned that “the normal rules of politics do apply to Donald Trump after all” when he loses to “Hillary Clinton clone” Elizabeth Warren.
It should come as no surprise that liberal comedian Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show, doesn’t watch Fox News. In fact, he dismissed the top-rated cable channel as not the “villain we’re chasing after.” According to an article posted on Monday by The Hollywood Reporter's Jeremy Barr, one of the biggest differences between Noah and previous host Jon Stewart is the fact that “Noah’s version rarely touches on the network” while Stewart “was heavy on criticisms” of FNC.
Sean Hannity congratulated his fellow Fox News Channel host Laura Ingraham in the 10 p.m. Eastern handoff on Monday night for “killing it” in the ratings. It looks like the angry leftist boycott completely backfired. TV Newser has the breakdwn that showed, for the first time ever, The Ingraham Angle beat MSNBC’s flagship 9 pm program The Rachel Maddow Show, in the key 25-54 demographic for the week.
A feud has broken out between Never-Trumper and CNN Commentator Ana Navarro and Fox News host Laura Ingraham. The feud first began on Wednesday, when Navarro asked Ingraham on Twitter, “Has Ms. Ingraham told Kanye to ‘shut up and sing’ yet, or does that only apply to anti-Trump black celebrities?”
Laura Ingraham interviewed Former Attorney General and former federal District Judge Michael Mukasey on her Friday Ingraham Angle show. Mukasey reminded viewers, contrary to assertions made by most other so-called experts, that memos and notes prepared by former FBI Director James Comey while he performed his federal duties "were classified as soon as he wrote them." He also recalled that James Comey's decision not to prosecute Hillary Clinton over her illegal use of a private server while she was Secretary of State was orchestrated by President Barack Obama, who telegraphed his expectation that she would be spared to protect his own illegal actions.
In a Monday appearance on Fox News Channel’s The Ingraham Angle, MRC founder and president Brent Bozell ripped into the liberal tech giants for censoring conservative thought on their social media platforms. “This is emerging, the greatest censorship of free speech worldwide in the history of man,” he exclaimed, referring to the findings of the blockbuster study conducted by the MRC’s Ashley Rae Goldenberg and Dan Gainor.
A funny thing has happened since the Left began its campaign to drive Fox News host Laura Ingraham off the air: Her ratings are up, a lot — by more than 20 percent compared to her last week on the air before the current controversy began.
On Easter Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, during a discussion of white evangelical Christian support for President Donald Trump, liberal Christian activist Frank Schaeffer -- a critic of conservative Christians -- suggested that FNC host Laura Ingraham and other Trump supporters are bad Christians who are engaging in a "betrayal of the teaching of Jesus."
Well that didn’t take long. My prediction was made in this space on October 28, 2017. The headline: "Laura Ingraham: New Fox Star, New Left-Wing Target." In which I said the following of the Fox announcement that Laura Ingraham- she the radio talker, ex-Reagan staffer, Justice Clarence Thomas Supreme Court clerk and all-around conservative superstar - would be hosting a new Fox opinion show at 10 pm weekdays. I wrote:
On Friday, all three network morning shows touted Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student and gun control activist David Hogg demanding that advertisers pull their sponsorship of Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show after she mocked him on Twitter – for which she has apologized. However, missing from all the hand-wringing about civility was any acknowledgment that Hogg and several other student activists have repeatedly used media appearances to hurl vile attacks against anyone who disagrees with them.
