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.
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.
On the Friday’s New Day, CNN’s Alisyn Camerota symbolized the network’s far-left turn and abandoning their silly “Facts First” campaign by triumphantly welcoming on anti-gun Parkland student David Hogg to laud his campaign to destroy Fox News Channel host Laura Ingraham. Camerota also lashed out at “dumbass colleges” who have rejected Hogg, stating that she’s “stunned” and wondered “how do you explain this.”
In the last 24 hours, several companies have announced they will no longer advertise on FNC’s Ingraham Angle, in response to a boycott spearheaded by Parkland high school student David Hogg. Yet many of the same national brands which now refuse to associate themselves with host Laura Ingraham have advertised just this week on controversial left-wing programs.
CNN claims in its advertisements that it's all about "Facts First." So what would explain fan-girling CNN articles like this one? "A brief history of how Parkland survivor David Hogg keeps schooling lawmakers on social media."
It’s not often that CNN media reporter Brian Stelter is honest about his blatant biases when it comes to politics, just take his assertions about the President’s mental fitness and his denials of making such connections. But during an appearance on the Monday edition of HLN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered, the Reliable Sources host appeared to let it slip that he let radical anti-gun activist David Hogg get away with making false claims about the guns and the NRA during a February 25 interview on his show.
On Monday's edition of The View on ABC, they talked about the liberal "March for Our Lives" protest against the gun-rights movement. Co-host Meghan McCain wonder if the wild language of the child activists like David Hogg calling Republicans "sick f---ers" was counterproductive, and three of her liberal counterparts rushed to Hogg's defense. Whoopi Goldberg argued "whether they're cussing you out, or speaking beautifully, doesn't matter."
On Monday's New Day, CNN host Alisyn Camerota finally conducted an interview with liberal gun control activists in a manner that didn't simply give them a forum to push their agenda and make incendiary comments about the NRA and Republicans, but actually spent several questions challenging them for demonizing their opponents. And, over the weekend during live coverage of the March for Our Lives rally, Camerota admitted that she had "mischaracterized" Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio's response to the Parkland school shootings.
NPR Weekend Edition Saturday welcomed Parkland student leftist David Hogg for an interview, and host Scott Simon offered the typical "how are you coping" and "do you have time to be a teenager" softballs. But when he teed up Hogg to say something political, Hogg was obnoxious.
As anticipated, on Saturday CNN provided wall-to-wall coverage of the highly promoted March for Our Lives in Washington, DC. The march was portrayed as a revolutionary grassroots movement by left-leaning journalists, who coincidentally happened to share the views of the march’s organizers and speakers.
