Ingraham Denies Saying Anything Racist In Her Televised Racist Segment

12 August 2018

On Wednesday night, Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham performed a monologue on her show that has been condemned for its resonance with the language of white supremacy. "She will only become greater by becoming more of what she already is".

Cuomo closed with a diss to Ingraham and President Donald Trump, "To turn a phrase back on our us versus them friend, is you don't like what America is, you leave", he said.

Ingraham on Thursday disavowed white nationalists, including former Ku Klux Klan (KKK) leader David Duke, who praised her comments. She decried the changes in the country because of "demographic" changes - something many took to mean racial changes, though she specifically denied that later in the commentary. Since "The Ingraham Angle" premiered in October, it has been the subject of two waves of boycotts for her often controversial comments.

Ingraham was highly criticized for commentary where she said that the United States many loved didn't exist anymore because of immigration, both legal and illegal.

She continued: "From Virginia to California, we see stark examples of how radically, in some ways, the country has changed. Much of this is related to both illegal and - in some cases - legal immigration that, of course, progressives love".

Critics quickly lambasted Ingraham on Twitter, saying her comments played into the white nationalist rhetoric that has been sparking tensions across the country.

Her program averaged 37 paid advertisements in March but was down to 15 in July, according to Media Matters for America, a liberal Fox News critic that monitors its programming. "They're saying the people are the problem, not just the entry".

Advertisers started pulling out nearly immediately, and by the following month, she had lost over two dozen. "Immigrants are here to stay because that's all we are".

Fox management has said nothing about Ingraham's remarks, and a spokeswoman said Friday that the network's top executive, Suzanne Scott, was not immediately available for an interview.
