The Ingraham Angle
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.
Even though Laura Ingraham has returned from vacation and hosted Monday night’s edition of The Ingraham Angle on the Fox News Channel, the criticism of her claim that Parkland gun activist David Hogg “whined” about not being accepted by a prestigious university continued, with the latest salvo coming from Daniel D’Addario, a TV critic for TIME magazine.
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."
In the final Friday segment of The Ingraham Angle, Fox News's Laura Ingraham focused much-needed attention on the public safety impact of California's refusal to cooperate with ICE's attempts to deport predominantly criminal illegal aliens in that state. Leveraging a Department of Homeland Security press release identifying the dangers the sanctuary state's policies have created when ICE agents try to do their jobs, Ingraham declared: "Shame on you, California. People could die or be injured because you refuse to cooperate."
On Sunday's World News Tonight, the show picked up on complaints by liberals accusing FNC host Laura Ingraham of making "racist" comments about the NBA's LeBron James on her show in which she criticized him for his recent slam against President Donald Trump. The worst thing about ABC's pre-recorded report was that, although the news team were clearly aware of Ingraham's response since they used a portion of it, they omitted the key explanation that her choice of words was a takeoff on her book, Shut Up and Sing, as the conservative talk radio host has had a long history of calling out liberal celebrities both white and black.
Laura Ingraham scored a memorable hit on anti-war liberals with her 2003 book "Shut up and Sing: How Elites from Hollywood, Politics, and the Media are Subverting America." After NBA stars LeBron James and Kevin Durant criticized President Trump yesterday, Ingraham issued a verbal variation on that zinger, rejecting their political commentary by telling them to "shut up and dribble."
One reason a coherent debate about immigration is almost impossible in this country is that the press fails to honestly and accurately report even the most basic facts. A Saturday Associated Press report on the topic by Nicholas Riccardi exemplifies this consistent failure.
Thursday evening's Ingraham Angle show on Fox News spent much of its time on immigration and DACA, the Deferred Amnesty for Child Arrivals program which was unilaterally created without congressional approval by the Obama administration in 2012. In one particularly telling exchange, host Laura Ingraham highlighted a major drug bust in Denver after she learned that all six men arrested or wanted are in the U.S. illegally — something the Denver Post and two other Denver-area media outlets which have covered the story have all failed to report.
