Laura Ingraham Dropped By Yet Another Big Sponsor Despite Being Off TV For A Week

Fox News host Laura Ingraham keeps getting more bad news even while she’s on vacation: Another major sponsor has dropped her show.

Ace Hardware will no longer advertise on “The Ingraham Angle,” TheWrap reported on Thursday.

“I can confirm that we do not have any plans to nationally advertise on Ingraham’s show in the future,” an unnamed spokeswoman for the company told the website.

Ace Hardware is the 19th company to ditch Ingraham since the right-wing host mocked Parkland student David Hogg, who has become an outspoken advocate for gun control, for not getting accepted into some of the colleges he had applied to.

In response, Hogg called for a boycott of her show, and Ingraham apologized as sponsors began to drop her show.

Hogg did not accept her apology.

“She only apologized after we went after her advertisers,” he told The New York Times. “It kind of speaks for itself.”

Several national brands, including Wayfair, Expedia, Nestlé, Johnson & Johnson, Stitch Fix, Jenny Craig, Hulu, JoS. A. Bank, Nutrish, and TripAdvisor have dropped her show.

Wisconsin Dairy Farmer Dumps 56,000 Pounds Of Milk Because ‘No One’s Buying It’

The coronavirus pandemic has dried up the marketplace for dairy products as restaurants, schools and businesses in food service have been closed. Now, dairy farmers are flushing away milk because no one is buying.

Mark Mueller, a Wisconsin dairy farmer said he dumped 56,000 pounds of milk on Friday, blaming restaurant closures because there was no place for him to haul his product.

The milk harvested from the nearly 1,000 cows will rot, Mueller told WFRV.

Mueller said he’s worried the COVID-19 pandemic is preventing dairy farmers from getting their milk to the market.

“It’s really depressing,” said Mueller. “It’s like all your hard work just running down the drain.”

Another farmer, Farmer Ryan Elbe, said his dairy farm is dumping about 30,000 gallons (113,562 liters) a day.

“We thought this would never happen,” Elbe said. “Everybody’s rushing to the grocery store to get food, and we have food that’s literally being dumped down the drain.”

CBS12 reported that Elbe’s cooperative, Dairy Farmers of America, has agreed to pay them for milk that’s being dumped.

For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death.
