It is painfully obvious that David Hogg’s attack on Laura Ingraham’s advertisers may have been coordinated with the help of the far left group Media Matters. Hogg had a list of Ingraham’s advertisers within minutes of the Ingraham tweet that set this whole thing in motion and actions like these are right out of the Media Matters playbook.
We also know that Hogg’s activism has been backed by groups like Move On and the Women’s March. Yet he denied all this in a recent appearance on MSNBC.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
David Hogg on Whether Shadow Groups Are Supporting Ingraham Boycott: ‘I Don’t Have Any Shadowy Figures Behind Me’
David Hogg, a 17-year-old student who survived February’s mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, on Monday night downplayed claims that his boycott of Fox News host Laura Ingraham’s advertisers was being led by “powerful, shadowy radical groups.”
Hogg, a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, appeared on MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” where he was asked about former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly’s tweet about the boycott “being directed by powerful, shadowy radical groups who want Laura Ingraham off the air.”…
“I’m pretty well lit. I don’t see any shadowy figures behind me,” said Hogg, who appeared to downplay Media Matters’ involvement. “Honestly, if he sees powerful shadowy groups, as corporate America standing with us. Okay? I guess it doesn’t really make sense.”

"I don't have any shadowy figures behind me… I'm just a kid that uses Twitter if he sees me as powerful that's okay. I don't see myself that way.
