Conservative author and commentator Laura Ingraham has become an immensely popular host on the Fox News Channel, and appears to be on the verge of closing out the year as the fourth highest rated cable news host, trailing only fellow Fox News hosts Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson, as well as MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.
