The Ingraham Angle
For much of the day on Friday and into the weekend, various hosts on both CNN and MSNBC were hard at work smearing Fox News host Laura Ingraham as someone who uses her show to promote "racist" and "white supremacist" views as they reacted to a commentary she gave on The Ingraham Angle show in which she advocated for merit-based immigration and lamented dramatic "massive demographic" changes.
During Thursday’s edition of Deadline: White House, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace suggested that a Republican with a “spine” needs to “call on all Republicans to boycott Laura Ingraham’s program until she apologizes for articulating and embracing a racist ideology like disparaging legal immigration.” Wallace and her panel repeatedly brought up the fact that David Duke had tweeted out support for Ingraham’s Wednesday monologue on The Ingraham Angle, which pointed out that America has changed dramatically because of legal and illegal immigration.
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.
Fox News Channel’s MediaBuzz host Howard Kurtz appeared on The Ingraham Angle July 5 to talk about the recent bout of #NeverTrump Republicans like Steve Schmidt and Max Boot appearing on cable news, disavowing their party over the president. A longtime media critic, Kurtz expressed amazement at the hysteria over Trump from the right which was almost worse than what is seen on the left. ”It’s hard not to notice these defections bring them favorable publicity,” Kurtz critiqued.
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.
