Fox, NBC and Facebook turn down Trump ad deemed racist

Trump Jr. Attacks CNN For Not Airing Racist Ad — CNN Fires Back

NBCUniversal Pulls Controversial Trump Campaign Ad

It's unclear why Fox News chose to drop the ad after running it six times (eight on Fox Business), but news of its decision came amid criticism that NBC aired the video during Sunday night football. The ad, paid for by Donald J. Trump for President, links an undocumented immigrant convicted of killing two police officers in 2014 to the caravan of migrants fleeing from violence and crime in Central America.

Not only was it racist; the ad was also swiftly proven false days ago.

The fact that the Comcast-owned net would take the ad and run it put more than a fright into a number of Hollywood players, with Judd Apatow and Will & Grace star Debra Messsing chastising NBC.

Trump's campaign manager, Brad Parscale, tweeted that NBC News, CNN and Facebook had chosen "to stand with those ILLEGALLY IN THIS COUNTRY".

Jones remarked that "we've been punched numb" on Trump's rhetoric already, but Fox News still decided in the end that it went too far.

An NBC source said the ad was cleared by the broadcast network's standards and practices team.

Bron and the Lakers lost to the Raptors 121 to 107. and LeBron only put up 18 points (he didn't even play the 4th quarter). With all of their rotation players healthy or back from suspension, the Lakers will be looking to establish consistency.

NBC said Monday that in its further review, it recognizes the insensitive nature of the ad.

Facebook has also blocked the ad from being eligible for paid promotion, saying that it violated the social network's policy regarding "sensational content". Users may still share the video on their pages, Facebook said. He said the media was trying to control what you see and think.

Trump Jr., who has been out campaigning for Republicans, fired a tweet towards CNN on Saturday morning, which included an ad sponsored by his father, that CNN refused to air.

The ad was not submitted to either ABC or CBS, according to sources close with CNN.
