RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

One of the
Pundits

And a dirty dozen more

Laura Ingraham is a staple of conservative talk radio and Ann Coulter knock-off. During the 1980s, Ingraham was the first female editor of the Dartmouth Review and then a speechwriter in the Reagan administration. During the 1990s, she became a commentator for CBS and MSNBC. She launched her radio show in 2001 and occasionally fills in for Bill O'Reilly and other Fox News hosts.[1]

Dartmouth Review[edit]

Ingraham began her career as a pundit at the Dartmouth Review, Dartmouth College's student-run conservative rag. During her stint at the Review, she met and dated fellow wingnut Dinesh D'Souza and helped to out members of the university's gay-straight alliance.[2] Despite her status as a Dartmouth alum, she enjoys railing against "elites" with fancy-pants college degrees.[3]

Nazi[edit]

At the 2016 Republican convention Ingraham stuck out her right hand ambiguously in a way some have interpreted as a Nazi salute. The moral: Don't get too much involved with far-right ideas or far-right people as Donald Trump has. If you do ambiguous gestures by supporters risk getting interpreted the wrong way.[4]
