Laura Ingraham Advertisers – Daily Update Episode 2

– 7/12 – Update daily advertisers
– 7/12 – Add weekly summary for the weeks ending 6/22 and 6/29.

On June 18, 2018, Laura Ingraham referred to the public outrage over the forced separation of immigrant children from their parents as “hilarious” and the makeshift detention centers for immigrant children as “essentially summer camps.” The next day, Parkland survivor David Hogg called for a second advertiser boycott of Ingraham’s show.

Quote “If we get these advertisers pulled maybe @Ingraham will have to become a camp counselor and learn how wrong she is.

This page will contain a daily update of Ingraham’s advertisers while this story develops. Lists of her top advertisers are also available here:

Top Ingraham Advertisers Week Ending June 17, 2018 (Weekly Summary)
Top Ingraham Advertisers Week Ending June 9, 2018 (Weekly Summary)

David Hogg first called for a boycott of Ingraham’s advertisers the end of March 2018. Over 25 advertisers left during the boycott have not returned. Today, the quality of Ingraham’s advertisers continues to be below the norm.

In the month of May, Sandals Resorts (advertising both “Beaches” and “Sandals” resorts) made up an unusually large portion (20%) of her advertising. My Pillow and Ace Hardware rounded up the top 33%. Notably, Ace Hardware had agreed to stop advertising back in April but later reversed their decision and continues to advertise; My Pillow’s founder is a Trump supporter and refused to pull advertising.

Update 6/21 – Politico reports that IAC (Home Advisor, Angie’s List) has pulled their ads. Other advertisers have declined to comment to multiple reporters on their advertising plans. One news outlet equated the companies refusal to comment to there being “no advertiser boycott”. However, this appears inaccurate.

Over 25 advertisers have pulled their ads after Hogg’s first boycott in March and nearly all have not returned. Also, when you look at the top advertisers of Fox News in May 2018, only 2 out of the 36 top advertisrs ran commercials on Ingraham’s program since her repugnant comments on Monday.

Are advertisers quietly pulling their ads, redirecting them to other programs, or avoiding Ingraham outright? We can’t say. However, we can observe that the overall quantity and quality of advertisers on Ingraham’s program continue to be below the norm.

Update 6/26/2018
Last week, one advertiser made up a whopping 30% of all commercials airings on Ingraham’s show. The top 5 make up about 60% of all commercials.
