Fox News host Laura Ingraham criticized a writer for The Atlantic  Tuesday after she claimed he attempted to “villainize” people who pray the rosary. 

In the article, Daniel Panneton asks why AR 15 rifles are showing up besides rosary beads online. 

“Just as the AR-15 rifle has become a sacred object for Christian nationalists in general, the rosary has acquired a militaristic meaning for radical-traditional (or “rad trad”) Catholics,” the article read.

“I am looking at the glass half-full,” Ingraham said. “Just because they demonize the rosary that must be something I should be doing more of.” 

Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo chimed in, offering that Christians have been praying the rosary for centuries adding the writer is probably,” filled with religious animus” and that “he’s afraid of faith.” 

Ingraham pointed out that The Atlantic has since changed the title of the article from “How the Rosary Became an Extremist Symbol” to “How Extremist Gun Culture Is Trying to Co-opt the Rosary.”

Jay Weber: ‘Younger and Younger’ People Listening to Conservative Radio

“But, for some reason, we’re having even those younger and younger listeners tuning in. It’s not just dad or grandpa’s radio station, anymore.”

Newstalk 1130 WISN’s Jay Weber noted during his show Wednesday morning the Milwaukee station is seeing an influx of younger listeners, according to the latest Nielsen numbers.

While discussing Gutfeld on Fox News being the highest rated “late night” television show, beating the likes of Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, and Jimmy Fallon, Weber described an uptick in younger, less-traditional talk radio demographics.

“We, here on WISN, have been doing better with younger and younger listeners, recently, and during this last book WISN was the top radio station among all demographics,” Weber said. “The so-called six-plus demo, that signifies six-year-old and older — which is an idiotic measurement — but it captures the 18-to-25 demo that, historically, talk radio and stations like WISN didn’t do so well with. But, for some reason, we’re having even those younger and younger listeners tuning in. It’s not just dad or grandpa’s radio station, anymore.

“And I don’t know if this is a larger talk radio trend, or whether this is a lasting trend, but it would stand to reason that if a larger chunk of today’s young people is coming right out of the box as more fiscally and socially conservative people than previous generations, it would stand to reason that we would see it reflected in the ratings and consumer profiles of stations like Fox News and WISN.”

Gutfeld won the ratings battle in the 25-54 demographic, averaging 397,000 viewers to Stephen Colbert’s 373,000.

“Folks, Gutfeld leading Kimmel, Colbert, etc… with young people? That’s an interesting trend,” Weber said. “Their shows are a nightly dose of liberalism. Gutfeld’s show is a nightly dose of conservatism. And look which one is winning out. Even with the younger demographics.”

Eric Bolling Questions Laura Ingraham After Trump Comments

“Solid, solid Trump supporter. Even spoke at the (Republican) National Convention for Trump. What do you mean, ‘no Trump;? What’s wrong with you?”

Fox News host Laura Ingraham has made comments recently suggesting it might be time for America to move past Donald Trump. Newsmax’s Eric Bolling strongly disagrees.

“Donald Trump’s been a friend of mine for 25 years, and I’m always very open about this on my show,” Ingraham said on The Truth with Lisa Boothe podcast. “But, you know, we’ll see whether that’s what the country wants. The country I think is so exhausted, they’re exhausted by the battle, the constant battle, that they may believe that, well, maybe it’s time to turn the page if we can get someone who has all Trump’s policies, who’s not Trump.”

Bolling, during a segment discussing the FBI’s raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, called Ingraham a friend before saying “Much like the organization she works for, Fox News’ Laura Ingraham seems to have thrown in the proverbial Trump towel.”

After airing the clip of Ingraham’s statement, Bolling said “Respectfully, I beg to differ, Laura. A friend of mine. Solid, solid Trump supporter. Even spoke at the (Republican) National Convention for Trump. What do you mean, ‘no Trump;? What’s wrong with you?”

It’s not the first time Bolling has accused Fox News of dumping Trump, claiming the network “turned their back” on the former President earlier this month. MSNBC’s Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough also insinuated the network had left Trump behind to push Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) in July.
