Report: Pharmaceutical company pulls ads from Fox News host Laura Ingraham



https://www.conservativeinstitute.org
June 8, 2019


Article:

In the latest example of corporate virtue signaling, Fox News host Laura Ingraham has been reportedly dropped by multinational pharmaceutical corporation Bayer, a top advertiser.

Bayer's ads will no longer appear on Ingraham's show "The Ingraham Angle," or on Tucker Carlson's "Tucker Carlson Tonight," two of the cable news network's most successful primetime opinion shows. Furious fanstook to Twitter to voice their displeasure, some using the #BoycottBayerhashtag.



Bayer out
Left-leaning site ThinkProgress' co-founder Jeff Legum reported on Bayer's decision Thursday in his Popular Information newsletter.

In a tweet announcing the pullout, Legum referred to the German corporation as Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham's "most prominent remaining brand advertiser." However, in a follow-on tweet, Legum notes that "Bayer was Ingraham's #2 overall advertiser this year, running 180 spots. Bayer was Tucker's #5 advertiser."


Fair weather friend


Although it's not exactly clear why the drug manufacturer decided to bail, its public relations staff may have been responding to pressure from Legum, who broadcast the news that Bayer was once again advertising with Carlson after previously pledging to boycott the show earlier this year. The company was one of dozens of advertisers to cut ties with Carlson after liberal activist group Media Matters called attention to audio of the Fox News host making controversial statements on a comedy show years ago.

The left can’t win in the arena of ideas, so they need to shut down the ones who can.

But hey, Bayer can do what they like. Given the audience levels of these shows, those ad dollars will be replaced easily enough.

Doesn’t Beyer own Monsanto?

They’d do well to advertise as much as possible.

Lots of damages being awarded lately...

Yea, if I were the PR department at Bayer I might be more concerned about the bad publicity I will be getting over the Round Up lawsuits or that their connection to Nazi concentration camp experiments in WW2 is becoming more well known. Geez, Bayer also had a hand in developing chlorine gas in WW1. So, they are not exactly the benign aspirin pushers they would have you believe. Maybe Ingraham and Carlson will be better off in the long run not to be associated with this warmongering faux SJW conglomerate.

Perhaps Fox needs to do a in-depth expose on Bayer's notorious past? Just in the interest of full disclosure of course.

It would be a great comeback if Ingraham and Carlson made a statement that they “didn’t wish to have Bayer renew their advertising contract, despite the monetary loss, because they were Nazi supporters”..... and see leftist media heads explode to the point where aspirin won’t help...

I HATE all of those big pharma ads.

I get a many times a day reminder of cancer as if losing both of my parents, friends and other family to it wasn't enough?

And their never ending ads for immune system supressors that do not cure the cause but will increase risks of many deadly diseases?

:insanity: :hairpull:

The feds should have never lifted the ban on these companies advertising to the public!
