Laura Ingraham is going nowhere. She’ll be back on her show after her vacation.
That’s the message Fox News is sending amid a left-wing boycott campaign meant to oust the conservative Fox News host over a tweet.
“We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts,” Fox News co-president Jack Abernathy said in a statement to The Daily Caller News Foundation. “We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back, hosting her program next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children.”
Parkland high school student and gun control activist David Hogg called for an advertiser boycott after Ingraham knocked him on Twitter for complaining about colleges that rejected his applications. Ingraham apologized to Hogg on March 29, but he refused to accept the peace offering.
Among the barrage of tweets calling for a boycott of Ingraham’s advertisers, Hogg posted a list of the companies.
