Fox News host Laura Ingraham called out New York University’s journalism school for hiring what she calls“radical anti-conservatives” and “little journo-terrorists.”
On Thursday’s The Ingraham Angle, the host criticized the hiring of Talia Lavin, who resigned from The New Yorker last year after mistakenly accusing an ICE agent of having a Nazi tattoo. Ingraham also referenced last year’s NYU hiring of former Teen Vogue columnist Lauren Duca.
“They don’t want to argue. They don’t want to win the debate. They want to search and destroy. That’s what they do,” Ingraham said of the journalists. “That’s why Fox viewers are so loyal to this network because we refused to bow, refused to cave into these kind of terroristic tactics. And that’s what they are. They’re little journo-terrorists.”
Lavin responded to Ingraham’s segment on Twitter:
Here’s Laura Ingraham displaying my face to 2.5 million viewers and calling me a “little journo-terrorist.”
I am 29.
I have no full-time job.
I am teaching a single course, for $7k, as an adjunct.
This is insane. And irresponsible. It is incitement. It is not okay. pic.twitter.com/4tyj9Bktr2

However, Lavin’s tweet was met with a mixed response from those who support her, and those who don’t really for sorry for her.
Reprehensible but exactly what one would expect from her. Take care of yourself, be cautious.

When I first saw you post about them putting your face out there like that I won’t lie I got a bit scared, these people are lunatics. Be safe.

Didn’t you smear a guy as a Nazi cause you misunderstood a tattoo? I don’t think people are gonna feel that bad for you.

Your lack of self awareness has me dead. It is too early for this much irony pic.twitter.com/7JcGwegdcV

Good for Laura.

You sound lazy.
Good prospects get hired.
Do some self-reflection.
Your life is what YOU make of it.

Meanwhile Duca, who is also at the center of a recent hit piece on Jezebel, simply had this to say to, well, everyone:
The Ingraham Angle airs weeknights at 10 p.m. on Fox News.
See how Twitter responded after CNN posted a flattering video package about Kellyanne Conway:
