Radio and Fox News TV host Laura Ingraham’s weak apology has done nothing but embolden the David Hogg Twitter Brigade, and make things worse. She’s lost even MORE sponsors since her apology.
When you apologize, in their eyes, you confirm that you were wrong.
If the Hogg Brigade succeeds in getting her TV show cancelled, they’ll go after her radio show. As a radio or TV host, you’re not obligated to have any real standards, but if you don’t, you’re just another guy or girl on radio who will be forgotten the day you’re gone.
Even your detractors will have grudging respect for you when you don’t back down. The difference between opinions and principles is simple: Having PRINCIPLES may actually cost you.
