Advertisers bend to the will of a high school student
Advertisers are caving and bending to the will of a high school student.
Yesterday, conservative radio and Fox News host, Laura Ingraham, tweeted out a message about Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg being rejected from college.
That’s what she tweeted. Nothing less, nothing more.
Was it the smartest thing to do? Probably not. But it’s not awful.
Well, Mr. Hogg, liberal hero of the moment, was incredibly offended. Not only demanding an apology from Ingraham, but he started going after her advertisers.
And you know what, those companies began caving, giving into the demands of a high school student.
But the story doesn’t stop there. Ingraham apologized for her “insensitive” tweet. However, that turned out not to be enough for Hogg, he is now demanding an apology from an entire network.
Yes, the same kid that said Sen. Marco Rubio had blood on his hands, that also said radio host Dana Loesch was a propagandist for the NRA and calling her disgusting, wants an apology from entire network.
I understand he’s been through a horrible, horrible thing. But this kid is taking his 15 minutes a little far. You can’t accuse a sitting senator of being directly responsible for the deaths of 17 people and then claim the moral high ground, demanding an apology.
Seriously, is where we are in 2018? If so, it’s a sad, sad place.
