FOX News host Laura Ingraham is on vacation this week, but a spokesman for the network claims she will be back next week. The far left has been targeting her advertisers for boycott at the behest of the teen activist David Hogg.
FOX News says Laura won’t be silenced over this.

Fox News states support for Laura Ingraham despite advertiser fallout
Fox News is standing by its embattled host Laura Ingraham, who has seen advertisers flee her show over a tweet directed at Parkland, Fla., school shooting survivor David Hogg.
“We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts,” Jack Abernethy, co-president of Fox News, said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times. “We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back hosting her program next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children.”
Ingraham has gone on a scheduled break after a week in which she came under fire for mocking David, a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, after he mentioned in an interview that he was not accepted by four University of California schools.
David responded by listing Fox News advertisers and urging his Twitter supporters to call for a boycott of her program “The Ingraham Angle.” Ingraham issued a tweet apologizing for remarks about David, but the student-turned-gun control activist did not accept it.
FOX News is smart to stand up to these far left activists. Indulging them would only embolden them.
