Laura Ingraham Dumps Guest for Throwing Fox’s Scandals in Her Face
A guest on Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Wednesday slammed her and the network for a number of past scandals, including sexual harassment claims by celebrities stars and even the time Ingraham mocked a survivor of a school shooting.
After a Scary Incident Witnessing the Safety of Buffalo Bills Damar Hamlin cardiac arrest during Monday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Ingraham spoke to Steve Almond, who in 2015 book Against football: A fan’s reluctant manifesto argued that it was time to give up the sport.
Almond stated that the NFL would make the game safer if there was an economic incentive to do so. He explained that a public relations issue would qualify before a comparison with Ingraham’s employer.
“Like at Fox News when you have the server who is person accused of sexual harassment” he say. “Fox News throws money at it to solve that PR problem.”
“It was a cute little move,” Ingraham would say shortly after. “I’m trying to get you to answer a question.”
The discussion then touches on the intersection of football and events in the fields of politics and social justice.
“I’m focused on the fans and what I believe in is fundamentally, it’s not that any government ban will make football safer, and certainly not a bunch of wild myths,” he said. sleep you mentioned to try to scare your viewers,” says Almond.
Ingraham interjected that she’s not “trying to scare viewers” and that the sport is “not about politics.”
“Oh, I think that’s your whole economic model,” replied Almond. “Your whole economic model is to scare the audience. That’s your entire performance.
At the conclusion of the interview, Almond again points out that the drive for change is financial, and makes a particularly relevant comparison in this process.
“A few years ago, when you mocked a survivor of a mass shooting in Parkland, you apologized just because advertisers have withdrawn from your program,” said Almond before his feed and microphone were cut off.
Ingraham responded by belittling her guest: “Do your best, man,” she said. “This is what they always do.”
