Google made a big bet on Fox News host Laura Ingraham in April, with the company running more than 20 ads on her show for itself and its YouTube subsidiary, according to a review of content by the liberal watchdog group Media Matters for America.
According to MMFA, Google or YouTube ads have appeared during “The Ingraham Angle” at least 23 times this month, beginning on April 2, with three ads running on the April 16 broadcast alone. “They were not there in 2018,” a rep for the group noted.
Reps for Google and Fox News did not respond to multiple requests for comment from TheWrap over the matter.
Ingraham has been facing an advertiser boycott since March 2018 after she publicly mocked Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg over his college prospects — and he shot back calling for a boycott of her top advertisers.
Dozens of sponsors abandoned the show, including marquee names like Bayer, Liberty Mutual, Wayfair and Johnson & Johnson. Even after a year, most have stayed away from the show.
