New York (CNN Business) Fox News on Friday afternoon stood by Laura Ingraham after she defended a white supremacist and several other fringe people who have been banned or disciplined by large social media companies.
Ingraham's defense of the extremists on her prime time Fox show "The Ingraham Angle" came during a segment on Thursday about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's criticism of Facebook for not removing a video doctored to make it appear she was drunk and slurring her words.
Ingraham said calls for Facebook to remove the video were a "pretext to be able to silence voices.".
Later during the segment, Ingraham displayed a graphic showing images of people she characterized as "prominent voices censored on social media.".
That sounds good until you realize hate," Ingraham said.
"And these are some of the people they've shunned.". »
