Tucker Carlson And Laura Ingraham Lose Major Advertiser

German aspirin-maker, Bayer, has cancelled its advertisements that appear on Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson's shows.

German aspirin-maker Bayer is the latest in a string of corporate firms to cancel their advertisements on Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson's shows, following a series of controversial statements by both, according to The Week.

Bayer was Ingraham's second largest advertiser this year, and Carlson's fifth largest.

The pharmaceutical giant announced that it would stop advertising on Fox at least two times in the past.

In March of last year, the company said it would no longer buy ads on The Ingraham Angle, but resumed advertisements a few months later. The firm also ceased running commercials on Tucker Carlson Tonight during that period.

This latest decision comes after Ingraham depicted White supremacist and Neo-Nazi Paul Nehlen as a prominent voice in the conservative movement.

Carlson had lost more than twelve advertisers this year, following a segment in which he suggested that immigration makes the U.S. "poorer and dirtier."

Pharmaceuticals AstraZeneca, Allergan, and Novo Nordisk stopped advertising on Fox News earlier this year. GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi, and Eli Lilly pulled out of the network in 2017.
