And sponsors are clearly saying they don't want to spend ad dollars on her show.
There also may be a short term drop in sponsorship, but ratings rule, so they, or others will be back. She isn't going anywhere.

Yes, he did. How many of the 300+ million guns owned by law-abiding Americans were involved in school shootings? An infinitesimal amount. Guns aren't the problem.

For those who didn't know HOW and WHY Cruz was able to pass a background check and therefore able to buy the gun in the Parkland shooting, this is what happened...

The reason Cruz was able to buy the gun he used to kill 17 in Florida is because due to an Obama/Holder-era program implemented in Broward, teen criminals were deliberately kept OUT of the justice system to preserve a clean criminal record. So, despite the fact that the police had to be called nearly 40 times to intervene in Cruz's criminal acts, Cruz had no record. It was clean. He was able to pass a background check and buy a gun.

This entire video is important to watch, but Broward officials state in their own words why teen criminals are deliberately kept OUT of the justice system and therefore able to maintain clean criminal records, beginning at 1:15...

https://www.browardprevention.org/wp...SE-PSA.mp4?_=1

What the students SHOULD be protesting is their own schools' 'shelter the teen criminals' policies placing them at risk.

Both Obama and Holder 'waxed poetic' on ending the "school-to-prison pipeline" as a social justice imperative, and Broward's "Promise Plan" is one of several (50+) implemented in school districts in conjunction with local law enforcement agencies throughout the country.

What's even MORE sick is that Broward officials KNEW this was a disaster waiting to happen, and did NOTHING to prevent it...

Very prescient words, from 2015:
Quote:
"Maria Schneider, head of the juvenile unit in the Broward State Attorney's Office, said the program was "a work in progress."

"We've accomplished reducing the arrests. Now it's 'how do we keep that up without making the schools a more dangerous place,'" she said."
Broward sees success in new student intervention program despite rise in suspensions - Sun Sentinel

Broward officials admit that student suspensions rise and schools get more dangerous when such a program is implemented. Guess why... Teen criminals know they won't get arrested, won't go to jail, won't have a criminal record for any criminal acts anymore. All they'll get is suspended from school. BFD. What teen delinquent doesn't want to not have to go to school in the first place? Sheer stupidity! From the government and adults who are supposed to be in charge.

Come on, people. Use critical thinking skills. Hogg, himself, injected his whiny college rejection tweets into the debate by invoking his self-declared status of "changing the world."
What debate? This is a kid complaining he didn't get accepted at the school he wanted. Laura the Shark decided it was a good time to take a bite, and got her teeth hammered down flat when he refused to become her victim.

For a weighted GPA, it's pretty lame. And his unimpressive SAT score cements that not top-tier academic credentials status.

He whined that he should have been accepted because he claims he's "changing the world." He opened himself up to all the criticism he's received.

^^^ how about a relaible website as a reference. One that would take down any reference to hitler.
Nothing other than this wacko website?

This has to be explained?

Can you take the dsicussions on GPA's somewhere else. We could careless about where you kid went to college and what their SAT was.
