NBC, Fox Yank Trump's 'Racist' Anti-Immigration Ad

Luis Bracamontes Immigrant Trump Jr. Attacks CNN For Not Airing Racist Ad — CNN Fires Back
Patty Aguilar | 07 November, 2018, 23:05

NBC and Fox News said in separate statements on Monday that their networks will no longer air the Trump campaign's racist anti-immigrant advertisement.

The ad said Trump and his allies will protect the border and urges viewers to "vote Republican". Facebook blocked the ad from receiving paid distribution after initially allowing it.

The move comes one day after NBC faced a backlash from viewers after it aired the controversial ad during Sunday night's National Football League game between the New England Patriots and the Green Bay Packers.

Many have compared the caravan commercial to the infamous Willie Horton ad during the 1988 presidential campaign that damaged the prospects of Democratic candidate Michael Dukakis.

When asked Monday about networks refusing to run the ad, Trump said he didn't know about it.

The ad fit into the president's near-daily attacks on immigrants and the caravan, which he has described as an "invasion".CNN had refused to run the ad, saying it was "racist".

Fox also pulled the ad yesterday "upon further review", said its ad sales department president, Marianne Gambelli.

Fox's decision to pull the spot - which it aired six times on Fox News and eight times on Fox Business, according to a media analyst - took many by surprise and reinforced the perception that the Trump campaign had gone too far.

Armed men in Cameroon kidnap 79 schoolchildren
The men who identified themselves as the kidnappers said they would only release the children when they attain their goal. The CDC runs banana, palm oil, and rubber plantations in Cameroon's troubled southwest and northwest regions .

On Facebook's platform, the ad reached millions of viewers before the social network chose to stop running it Monday.

"A lot of things are offensive", he told reporters before departing for a series of campaign rallies.

Ahead of today's midterm elections, three major television networks made a decision to pull the ad, which includes footage of a twice-deported Mexican immigrant who was sentenced to death for killing two police officers.

"Instead, Parscale lambasted NBC, CNN, and Facebook and said the "#FakeNewsMedia" was "trying to control what you see and how you think".

"This ad violates Facebook's advertising policy against sensational content so we are rejecting it". The president frequently blames Democrats for the stalemate over immigration reform and has made prominent mention of the migrants fleeing Central America by making their way through southern Mexico. Democrats don't want to bother to find out; they want to retain catch-and-release policies that allow people to approach our border and then stay in the country illegally.

Political strategist Alex Castellanos added he "can't remember an ad, ever, that was denied airtime because of its point of view, because it was called offensive or racist".

In response, the president's son, Donald Trump Jr., tweeted over the weekend: "I guess they only run fake news and won't talk about real threats that don't suit their agenda".
