Laura Ingraham says January 6 audiences were ‘bombed’ despite having nearly 20 million views compared to Fox’s 3 million
Fox News presenter Laura Ingraham said the Committee’s January 6 hearing on Thursday was “bombed” despite attracting nearly 20 million viewers.
Fox was the only major media outlet not to broadcast the hearing Thursday night live, which was the House Select Committee’s first major public hearing on Jan. election and what then-President Donald Trump knew. before and during the attack.
Committee members revealed that Trump and his allies organized “an attempted coup” and financed a disinformation campaign that “provoked violence on January 6.” They also said that Ivanka Trump “accepted” the attorney general’s view that there was no voter fraud and that several Republican congressmen asked for a pardon after Jan.
Ingraham’s claim that audiences “bombed” came as she responded to criticism from The View’s Joy Behar.
“Fox News did not broadcast the January 6 Committee hearings live last night. Shocking isn’t it? But they still had a lot to say about it,” Behar said. “The usual suspects, Tucker [Carlson] and Ingraham, dusted off their biggest hits, calling it a witch hunt, saying it’s Pelosi’s political vendetta, and downplaying what happened on the 6th.”
Behar added: “There were no commercial breaks last night on any of the shows. So what does that tell you? That Rupert Murdoch is so desperate to keep his viewers away from the audience, along with those two, that he’s willing to lose millions of dollars.”
Ingraham responded to Behar in a tweet, claiming to have had “two commercial breaks on Thursday night”. According to PolitiFact, Carlson and Hannity’s shows had no commercial breaks, while Ingraham “went to the commercial a few times.”
