Laura Ingraham is a Fox News host who gained notoriety for his criticism of David Hogg, a survivor of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school shooting. On Wednesday, March 28, Ingraham tweeted “David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA…totally predictable given acceptance rates.)”
In addition to hosting The Ingraham Angle on Fox News, she also hosts the nationally syndicated radio show, “The Laura Ingraham Show” and is the editor-in-chief of LifeZette.
Prior to her professional career, Ingraham graduated from Dartmouth College in 1985 and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Virginia School of Law in 1991. During this time period, Ingraham worked as a speechwriter in the Ronald Reagan administration for the Domestic Policy Advisor.
Despite the controversy Ingraham created in 2018, Fox News has stood behind her, releasing the following statement:
“We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts. We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back hosting her program next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children.”
In response to her criticism, Hogg has called for advertisers to drop Ingraham’s show.
