Fox News said Monday it has stopped airing the controversial political ad paid for by President Donald Trump’s campaign, which likens members of the Central American migrant caravan to a man convicted of killing police officers in the U.S.
The Trump-friendly network’s decision comes after CNN made headlines on Saturday for refusing to air it and after NBC came under fire for running it during prime time on Sunday night.
“Upon further review, Fox News pulled the ad yesterday and it will not appear on either Fox News Channel or Fox Business Network,” ad sales president Marianne Gambelli said in a statement.
CNN called out the ad as blatantly “racist” in replying to critical tweets from Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, who charged that the network would “only run fake news and won’t talk about real threats.”
Fox’s decision follows NBC saying earlier Monday that it had erred in running the ad.
“After further review, we recognize the insensitive nature of the ad and have decided to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible,” said Joe Benarroch, a spokesperson for the NBC advertising sales department.
Facebook said Monday it will remove the ad from its platforms.
I have to say that I am a little disappointed that NBC ran the ad even once. I thought better of them.
It appears that the network with the most integrity, in this case, was CNN. Good for them.
Gee, I wonder what Trump Junior will say now that essentially everybody has rejected the ad?
CNN refused to run this ad… I guess they only run fake news and won’t talk about real threats that don’t suit their agenda. Enjoy. Remember this on Tuesday. #vote #voterepublican pic.twitter.com/VyMm7GhPLX

Yes, Junior, it did not fit their “not promoting racism” agenda, the same agenda that NBC, Facebook, and Fox News also seem to share.
In fact, after today you might finally learn that the majority of Americans also share that same agenda.
