Laura Ingraham Accidentally Delivered The Best Self-Own Of 2018

Fox News host has now lost more than two dozen sponsors.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham has lost more than two dozen sponsors since mocking David Hogg, one of the teen survivors of the Feb. 14 mass shooting in Parkland, Florida.

As a result, it raised eyebrows on Wednesday night when she delivered an awkward reference to doing her show without a commercial break ― not because of fleeing advertisers but because of all the material she had.  

“Fantastic segment,” she said, thanking her guests. “We got more, though, here. We’re going to do the whole show without a break.” 

She didn’t do the show without a break, but sponsors continue to pull the plug on “The Ingraham Angle.” 

On Thursday, Red Lobster became the 26th advertiser to dump the show, according to The Wrap.

However, not everyone is fleeing.

Forbes reports that My Pillow has increased advertising on the show by 625 percent since the week prior to Ingraham’s controversial March 28 comments.  

The network has vowed to stick by the embattled host.

We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts,” Fox News Co-president Jack Abernethy told the Los Angeles Times.
