Remember The Boycott Against Laura Ingraham? Turns Out It Was a Big, Fat Failure

The left’s efforts to silence Laura Ingraham completely backfired.

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.

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.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
