Florida Family Association launched an online campaign on June 20, 2018 which reported that David Hogg, Stoneman Douglas High School student and now gun control, pro-illegal alien, anti-conservative, and anti-Republican activist had renewed efforts to influence advertisers to boycott Fox News’ Laura Ingraham by tweeting the following list of advertisers.
1. @BeachesResorts & @SandalsResorts
5. IAC (Angie’s List, Home Advisor, Match)
Florida Family Association’s June 20, 2018 and June 22, 2018 email alerts encouraged thousands of people to send emails that urged the companies listed above to continue supporting Laura Ingraham’s show.
IAC was the ONLY company that bowed to David Hogg’s demand by pulling its advertising.
The Wrap reports in part:
At least one company, IAC, is boycotting “The Ingraham Angle” over its host Laura Ingraham’s comments about immigrant children separated from their parents, according to Politico.
The media company, which already stopped airing ads for Match.com after Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg’s previous advertiser boycott campaign, told Politico that it’s no longer running commercials for HomeAdvisor or Angie’s List. IAC did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment when asked if they had stopped advertising on the show.
During an interview with CNBC on Wednesday, IAC CEO Joey Levin intimated they were no longer going to run ads on Ingraham’s show. “Staying politically neutral is a hard thing to do, but I also think it’s an important thing to do,” he said, responding to a question of how his company deals with social-media driven boycott campaigns. “That’s not to say when we’re seeing things where our ads are, where things are being said that we are not happy with, that we won’t pull them, which is what we did in the case of that particular show.”
“There’s been no impact on our business and new advertisers continue to opt in for our powerful primetime line-up,” said a Fox News spokesperson.
IAC CEO Joey Levin said “Staying politically neutral is a hard thing to do, but I also think it’s an important thing to do.” Ingraham Angle's objectionable content is miniscule compared to the incessant, vitriolic political attacks on conservatives and the President of the United States by CNN and MSNBC. If IAC truly wants to “stay politically neutral” then it should stop advertising with the proliferators of venomous, fake political news such as CNN and MSNBC.
Angie’s List and Home Advisor succumbed to David Hogg’s demand for a safe space to launch fiery words at people and organizations but expect not to take on any real fire himself. David Hogg is continuing his rant against Laura Ingraham for criticizing him in March 2018. He just used a different motivational appeal with advertisers to justify his second tantrum.
Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send to urge IAC officials to resume advertising on the Ingraham Angle.
