  • 'Simpsons' Criticized for Response to Apu Controversy

    Fox's The Simpsons is under fire for the way in which the show responded to controversy around one of its most recognizable and oldest characters, Apu Nahasapeemapetilon. The outcry over the stereotypical portrayal of Springfield’s Kwik-E-Mart owner, voiced by Hank Azaria, was addressed Sunday night in the episode “No Good Read Goes Unpunished" when Marge Simpson reads a book to daughter Lisa that has been changed from its original version to something not so controversial. “Something that started decades ago and was applauded and inoffensive is now politically incorrect. What can you do?,” says Lisa. The show then panned to...

    Right-wing commentator Laura Ingraham has taken a week off as host of her Fox News television show after more than a dozen companies said they will pull advertisements from her program. Among the latest corporations to cut ties with Ingraham were Liberty Mutual, which confirmed to CNBC that it doesn't plans to run anymore ads on her show, and Bayer, which made its announcement on social media. [cut] Pet food company Nutrish was the first to announce it would remove ads from Ingraham's evening news and opinion show, "The Ingraham Angle." Well over a dozen companies, including TripAdvisor, Hulu and...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | April 1, 2018 | William A. Jacobson
    There is an all out assault in progress trying to drive Laura Ingraham off television and radio, led by Parkland student and newly-minted media star David Hogg. Ingraham is a target, superficially, because she mocked Hogg as a whiner in a tweet after he publicly griped that several colleges had rejected him. On the scale of internet insults, saying that someone is “whining” doesn’t even register it’s so mild.

    David Hogg bid a sarcastic farewell to Fox Host Laura Ingraham after she announced she will go on vacation and off air next week. On Friday Ingraham shared on her program she will take a pre-planned break for the Easter holiday with her children, according to Variety. Hogg tweeted 'Have some healthy reflections this Holy Week' echoing Ingraham's own words of apology that she offered after Hogg's boycott saw her lose 11 of her show's advertisers.

    Laura Ingraham is taking a vacation next week. Now the question is whether a controversy swirling around the host will go on hiatus as well. The popular Fox News Channel host – her “Ingraham Angle” was the fourth most-watched cable-news program in February – told viewers Friday night she would not appear on air next week as she took what she described as a pre-planned break around the Easter holiday with her children. Substitute hosts are expected to fill in for her on the program. She leaves in the midst of heightened scrutiny. Ingraham set off an imbroglio Wednesday with...
  • At Least 11 Advertisers Now Boycotting Ingraham’s Show Despite Apology To David Hogg

    Hot Air ^ | March 30, 2018 | Allahpundit
    This will end ironically when Fox drops Ingraham at 10 and replaces her with Tomi Lahren, who’s twice as eager to provoke as Ingraham is. The latest to go is Office Depot, which wasn’t named in the list of 12 companies Hogg tweeted out last night as “top advertisers” on her show. It makes sense that companies that advertise less frequently would be quicker to cut the cord. Although he’s doing well with the major advertisers too:

    Unsolicited advice for David Hogg: when someone offers you a gracious apology, and does so “in the spirit of Holy Week,” accept it. On CNN this morning, when Alisyn Camerota asked Hogg if he accepted Laura Ingraham’s apology for tweeting about Hogg having been rejected by four colleges, Hogg curtly replied: “No. She’s only apologizing after advertisers pulled out. And I think it’s really disgusting that she basically tried promoting her show after [air quotes] apologizing to me.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    I was watching Fox News Network just now, and Charles Payne came on. I had thought he was off the network (I have been away from America for a while, sorry). Apparently he's back, and I was very impressed that he seems to be very much for American businesses. He said he will be on at 6:00 tonight. (I believe he will be on Fox Business, not Fox News) Just thought I would mention that. Welcome back.

    In the aftermath of 17 students and teachers being gunned down at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, schools, colleges, and universities are reevaluating campus safety and taking a closer look at their active-shooter protocols. There are questions about how this could have happened when there were so many signs for earlier detection. In a three-part series, we will examine a local well-publicized case involving the University of South Florida where an incident was detected at the Tampa campus but went unreported by the USF police department and how the failure to take appropriate action could have just...

    Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Shepard Smith Reporting,” host Shepard Smith noted President Donald Trump used tweets over the weekend to attack multiple people, including Oprah Winfrey. However, Smith also pointed out Trump did not go after Russian President Vladimir Putin or “express concerns that the Russians attacked the United States.” Smith said, “The president spent the weekend defending himself, misrepresenting the truth and attacking others from his phone in Florida. The president attacked the Justice Department, the FBI, and his National Security Adviser H. R. McMaster. He attacked Congressman Adam Schiff, Democrats and the DNC. He attacked Hillary Clinton,...

    So Sessions recuses himself for having an innocuous and indirect contact with a Russian. But Rosenstein is hired to be his number two and oversee Mueller based on a FISA application that he signed knowing it was BS and was the basis for Trump-Russia collusion nonsense Mueller was investigating. Rosenstein should be sent to jail for a long, long, time.

    I know what it’s like to lead a country. My advice to Trump is to get out of politics before he does any more damage. America is great. It's always been great — we don’t need to “make it great again”. I actually think that it’s always going to be great. But I want to emphasize that America could be greater if it sees itself as more than just the United States, if it sees itself as a part of a larger America. All all of us together — Canada, the United States and Mexico, The North American continent —...

    A civil rights activist is suing Fox News and network host Jeanine Pirro, alleging that she made "false and defamatory statements" about him while discussing the Black Lives Matter movement. DeRay Mckesson, one of the movement's leaders, said that Pirro defamed him when she claimed during a "Fox & Friends" segment that he directed protesters to commit violence against police officers, according to The Baltimore Sun. The lawsuit centers around remarks Pirro made on Sept. 29 while discussing the dismissal of a lawsuit filed by a police officer who was injured during protests in Baton Rouge, La. "Pirro's statements are untrue and further a...
