David Hogg wants to pressure advertisers to stop supporting Laura Ingraham’s show.
David Hogg has been brashly trashing everyone who is older than him or disagrees with him as ignorant and incompetent. Now that a Fox News show host has mocked his own abilities, Hogg wants advertisers to cease supportiong Laura Ingraham’s show. Some may find mocking Hogg for being rejected by four colleges to be lacking in taste. Hogg himself made that argument and the media broadcast it for him.
But having a platform to argue with Laura Ingraham is not enough. Hogg wants to use pressure to shut her up. I assume most advertisters will ignore this pressure because they need to spread awareness of their products and Ingraham’s show is a way to do that. But one is pretending her behavior is problematic.
Why isn’t Hogg’s behavior problematic? Why is it encouraged by the media?
The New York Daily News reports, “Parkland survivor David Hogg calls on advertisers to boycott Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show.”
“David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it,” she tweeted Wednesday with a link to a Daily Wire article. “(Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA…totally predictable given acceptance rates.)”
Hogg told TMZ that he had been rejected from UC Los Angeles, UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara and UC Irvine, but accepted at Florida Atlantic University, Cal Poly and Cal State San Marcos.[…]
Hogg […] responded to Ingraham after her jeers.
“Soooo @IngrahamAngle what are your biggest advertisers … Asking for a friend,” he tweeted.
Around 9:30 p.m., he published a list of advertisers, asking his 595,000 followers to call the companies, including Hulu, Liberty Mutual and Sleep Number.
He also tweeted directly at the businesses […].
Nutrish, one of Ingraham’s advertisers, told the Daily News Thursday that the company will cut ties with her show.
“We are in the process of removing our ads from Laura Ingraham’s program, as the comments she has made are not consistent with how we feel people should be treated,” a spokesperson said.
