A newly minted celebrity, 17-year-old David Hogg, who became a student activist after the mass shooting at Florida’s Parkland High School, is being helped in his attacks on Fox News host Laura Ingraham by “powerful, radical, shadowy groups.”
But Fox News is having none of the “agenda-driven intimidation efforts,” and the network is standing by Ingraham.
Hogg has been making the TV interview rounds since the Feb. 14 shooting at his school in which 17 people were killed, calling for gun control.
He commented in an interview that he has been rejected by a number of elite colleges and universities, and Ingraham poked fun at him on social media. He erupted and demanded an apology, which she provided.
But as his campaign against Ingraham drew support, he refused her apology and called her a “bully.” Hogg called on his more than 600,000 Twitter followers to slam Ingraham’s top advertisers
