It appears that Fox News will not give in to the David Hogg, Media Matters and #TheResistance driven faux outrage over Laura Ingraham’s mild rebuke of Hogg as someone who “whines.” That faux outrage has been used to intimidate advertisers into fleeing Ingraham’s highly-rated program.

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....

Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg has spent the last month and a half criticizing 2nd Amendment supporters in the most grotesque terms.

His latest tirade accused those who disagree with him as “sick f**kers”:

Bill O’Reilly’s Fox News career now swims with the fishes.
