Skip to comments.CNN’s Stelter On Laura Ingraham-David Hogg Dust-Up: Increase In Ad Boycotts ‘Dangerous’
Posted on 04/02/2018 5:20:29 AM PDT by blam
During Sundays Reliable Sources on CNN, host Brian Stelter weighed in on the advertiser boycott initiated by Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg on Fox News Channels Laura Ingraham, calling the uptick in the boycotts dangerous.
Are ad boycotts the right answer here? Stelter asked. Im personally pretty wary of this.

It’s only the left (i.e., Media Matters) doing it though.
Those companies who pulled ads from Laura Ingraham’s show over her comment about David Hogg being rejected by colleges show no fear of those who support the 2nd Amendment that might not appreciate this.
Joy Reid was gloating over this on her MSNBC show yesterday,
Ingraham not on her show this week.
As usual, conservatives do nothing to push back on these social media bullies.
How many people have called her advertisers or cancelled accounts to voice support for Ingrahm?
"Parkland student-activist David Hogg has doubled down on his attacks on Fox News host Laura Ingraham, by slamming the conservative host for her criticism and lack of apology to sports figures like LeBron James."
I canceled my Hulu account and told them why.
I think we will soon be approaching boycott exhaustion, where it just won’t matter.
So many causes for PC offense, so hard to keep up with, so little time.
So what's the point?
It would be very dangerous for the lefty media if we wise up and do the same thing to one of them when they say something outrageous. And then we do it to another one. And another one.
I understand the need to at times have a woman in front of the audience, but honestly they are not of the make up to go on the offensive against the Left.
Cattiness and female passive-aggressiveness are not going to discredit and disqualify the Left if we allow the left to dominate the moral level of this conflict.
This is a guy that understands. He must remember the Chick-fil-a “boycott” and how that ended up.
What dangerous is the naivety of Corporate American falling time and again for these computer bot driven PR “boycott” campaigns.
Leftists pressure groups use computer bots programs to generate thousands of fake emails. Politician have gotten wise and know how to screen out these but Corp America still is falling for this garbage.
it time for the Right to stop playing with kid gloves and destroy these Leftist clown shows at their own game.
Funny isn’t it? That all those sponsors were on FOX this weekend.

A. Don’t say anything stupid that will come back to bite you in the ass. It is bad enough if in a bar full of ‘half drunks’ and one sort of ‘threatens’ another, the word will get back to the other and you MAY have to back up your words.
B. Like the old ‘you can’t put the fizz back in the bottle’, once said either prepare to defend yourself and IF you decide to apologize make it sincere, not some off the cuff remark.
C. If A &/or B ‘don’t work’ just stand center stage and have an assistant pour gas over you and play the role of a ‘Vietnamese Monk’ and light same.
You can do the ‘Hari Kari’ and insert your own knife/sword.
They sit around the DT dissidents and fans, watch him make some ludicrous statement, wait for the attack, THEN attack the attackers...Biggest problem with the D’s and PTDS is that eventually someone will catch on and just let PDTs inane comments hang out there and keep repeating them NOT challenging them.
The age old question of when a town/community/city etal sets up speed/red light cameras vowing to ‘balance the budget or grow the budget’ with the new found revenue and all of a sudden the urge to speed or run redlights dissipates and the municipality is left holding the bag with a couple of cameras and large bills.
We have reached the point in MD where ‘they’ were legislating new texting while driving laws and had just about settled on 500 bucks first offense plus points and the ‘point’ was argued that a fine as stiff as that would be unfair to ‘the poor’ they started to back off.
UH DUMMIES: IT IS A SELF IMPOSED WOUND. If you don’t want to pay the stiff fine SHUT THE PHONE OFF AND DRIVE and you won’t run the risk of a stiff fine.
This bunch of idiots would pay a ‘cohort consultant’ millions of bucks for the ‘advice’ I just gave them for FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Speak for yourself.
I cancelled my Netflix account when they selected Susan Rice to be on their Board of Directors. And I told them why during the cancellation process.
So tell us mac_truc, what have you done?
This kid is an 18 year old snot nosed punk, who doesn’t know a damn thing about life. Who the hell is he to call for boycotts etc. It’s about time that he gets some push back.
Those are just par for the course but what is surprising is how David Hogg can order FNC/Ingraham show sponsors to drop their ads and they do it.
Ingraham now off the air this week after apologizing.
Meanwhile I see comments here by some indicating that Hogg is irrelevant.
If he can do that to her he is relevant.
First of all could the reason Florida GOP pols like Rubio and Scott are not pushing for investigations into the failed security policies in Parkland which also had anything but high scholastic standards. Are refusing to do so are because of big money law suits springing up ?
Many of those advertisers are foreign based like Bayer and Nestles which are Swiss owned. Those headquartered in Europe get their news and corporate big shots formulate their corporate points of view from our media which is anti Trump.
