Media Matters reports:
On the May 28 edition of Podcast One’s The Laura Ingraham Show Podcast, Fox’s Laura Ingraham did a live read of an ad for President Donald Trump’s Make America Great Again Committee, a joint fundraising committee for his 2020 reelection campaign.
Ingraham’s ad read is just another example of the unethical conflicts of interest posed by the unofficial alliance between the Republican Party and right-wing media, especially Fox News.
Media Matters reporting has shown that multiple Fox hosts, including Ingraham, Tucker Carlson, Lou Dobbs, Sean Hannity, Pete Hegseth, and Jeanine Pirro have received over $500,000 combined in speaking fees from Republican groups during their time at the network.
