Laura Ingraham will return to her Fox News show "The Ingraham Angle" Monday night, having survived the quickly-announced vacation she took after losing a large number of advertisers. Those companies dropped support for Ingraham after she attacked Parkland student survivor David Hogg.
Ingraham had apologized after the first few advertisers quit, but that did nothing to stop the problem. As the week went by, more and more advertisers either quietly or very publicly pulled their dollars from her show.
Even though the crisis was defused by Ingraham taking time away from the public eye, advertisers last week continued to flee.
And this week too.
"Allstate insurance has quietly dropped Ingraham’s show, telling employees in an internal memo that her comments about Parkland student David Hogg were 'inconsistent' with company values," Itay Hod writes in an exclusive at The Wrap. "Allstate is at least the 20th advertiser to drop Ingraham."
“Laura Ingraham’s comments about David Hogg were inconsistent with our values,” the memo read, as Hod reports. “Allstate believes in youth empowerment and last year helped 5 million youth find their voices and take action to make the world better. We have not advertised on ‘The Ingraham Angle’ since Wednesday. We hope our youth can help us find a path to a less divisive future.”
So who are the other advertisers to flee?
The Cut reports these 18 have pulled their ads or have said they will not advertise on Ingraham's show in the future:
