Fox News Backs Ingraham Amid 'Agenda-Driven Intimidation'

Fox News Backs Ingraham Amid 'Agenda-Driven Intimidation'

Fox News is reportedly standing by Laura Ingraham, whose show, "The Ingraham Angle," has lost advertisers after the host posted a mean tweet aimed at Parkland, Florida, school shooting survivor David Hogg.

"We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts," Jack Abernethy, co-president of Fox News, said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times.

"We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back hosting her program next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children."

She had already planned to take a break before the controversy erupted.

Ingraham came under fire for mocking Hogg, a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, after he mentioned in an interview he was not accepted by four University of California schools.

Hogg responded by listing Fox News advertisers and urging his Twitter supporters to call for a boycott of her program.

Ingraham apologized for her remarks.

Hogg did not accept her apology.

More than a dozen advertisers have stated publicly they have pulled their commercials from "The Ingraham Angle," the L.A. Times reported — including Johnson & Johnson, Liberty Mutual, Office Depot, Expedia, Nestle, and Hulu.

Ingraham took over the 10 p.m. ET slot on Fox News in October.
