Anti-gun activist David Hogg trained his sights on Fox News.
Hogg made taking down Laura Ingraham the first step in his crusade to tear down America’s number one cable news network.
But Fox News fired back and shut down Hogg with these seven words.
The controversy began when Ingraham cracked that Hogg was “whining” in an interview with TMZ about being rejected from four California colleges.
So Hogg dipped into the thuggish playbook liberals possess and directed his 700,000 twitter followers to harass Ingraham’s advertisers.

Hogg’s plan to bully Ingraham off the air had appeared to be working.
Advertisers fled her program and Fox announced Ingraham was taking a one week vacation.
Hogg smelled blood in the water and boasted to the New York Daily News that he wanted Ingraham off the air permanently.
But Hogg’s real target was Fox News.
Liberals like Hogg want Fox News eliminated.
If they caved and removed Ingraham, it would open up the network to sponsor blackmail to remove conservatives.
But Fox did not cave into Hogg’s tyrannical attempts.
They released a statement declaring they would not concede to intimidation tactics and that “We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back.”
The Los Angeles Times reports:
“Fox News is standing by its embattled host Laura Ingraham, who has seen advertisers flee her show over a tweet aimed at Parkland, Fla., school shooting survivor David Hogg.
“We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts,” Jack Abernethy, co-president of Fox News, said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times. “We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back hosting her program next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children.”
