"I'll be off next week for Easter break with my kids but fear not, we've got a great line up of guest hosts to fill in for me", Ingraham said during Friday's show.

That same day, Hogg responded by encouraging his followers to boycott Ingraham's Fox News show, tweeting out a list of companies who advertise for it and encouraging people to call them in protest.

And former host Bill O'Reilly lost dozens of advertisers for his show after the New York Times reported that he and Fox News had agreed to a series of secret settlements over harassment allegations.

Mitchell explained that Ingraham has apologized to Hogg and asked the school shooting survivor whether he sees it all as water under the bridge.

Ingraham and other Fox News hosts have characterized Hogg and his classmates as frantic anti-gun left-wingers in the wake of the February 14 Parkland shooting that left 17 people dead.

Galaxy seems to lack dark matter, stumping astronomers
The galaxy is about 65 million light-years away in the constellation of Cetus and is about the same size as the Milky Way. The galaxy was studied by many telescopes (Jemini and Kek Hawaii, Space Hubble , etc.) to cross-check the results.

Hogg elaborated on his disgust with Ingraham's apology before the segment ended, saying that she tried to promote her show in the same tweet that was supposed to apologize for the comments, something he said was "sickening". I will only accept your apology only if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and I️ in this fight.

"As always, he's welcome to return to the show anytime for a productive discussion", Ingraham said.

Eleven companies so far have pulled their ads after a pushback by Parkland student David Hogg, 17, who called for a boycott of her advertisers. It's time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children.

On Wednesday morning, Ingraham tweeted a story from a conservative news site that described Hogg as a "Gun Rights Provocateur" - and said he hadn't gotten into four University of California schools he applied to.
