Remember not that long ago when conservative Fox News host Laura Ingraham got into a heated Twitter battle with Parkland survivor and anti-gun activist David Hogg? You know, the one where he called for a boycott of her show by advertisers and ended up forcing her to take a “vacation” from the air?
Well, as it turns out, the young Mr. Hogg’s efforts were all for naught. Yes, the boycott ended up being a complete, total, utter failure. Likely the first of many for this young man who has found himself a puppet of the left.
Ingraham has seen a 20 percent increase in viewership following the boycott and has been winning the primetime battle ever since.
In a moment noted by Mediaite, Ingraham and her fellow Fox host Sean Hannity took a moment to celebrate the success of the lone conservative news network in general and, specifically, Ingraham, who beat out the competition this week. Here’s how Mediaite reported Ingraham’s success, which came “despite recent controversies” surrounding her show:
Ingraham, despite recent controversies surrounding her 10 p.m. show, had a big week in the ratings, managing to beat MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow — who rivals Hannity at 9 p.m. — in the key 25-54 demo for the first time ever. The Ingraham Angle notched 2.7 million total viewers and 556,000 in the demo.Trending:
Clearly enjoying the chance to cheer his fellow primetime host’s victory over the leftwing activists from Media Matters and co., Hannity told Ingraham that the network is “really proud” of her. He also took the opportunity to thank the faithful Fox audience, who, if anything, grows alll the more faithful amid campaigns targeting the network and its on-air personalities.
So, in reality, Hogg’s efforts did the exact opposite of what he was aiming for. Rather than silencing and shaming Ingraham, it gave her greater exposure and caused many individuals who might not have otherwise tuned into her program to make it a part of their regular television viewing.
This same thing has happened repeatedly with not only news coverage, but also with entertainment choices. The more the left hates on a movie or television program for promoting conservative values, the more popular it becomes.
You’d think they’d learn this by now, but apparently they haven’t.
