NBC, Fox News Pulling Trump's Anti-Caravan Ad

NBC, Fox News Pulling Trump's Anti-Caravan Ad

CNN said it was made "abundantly clear" through its coverage that the ad was racist and declined to air it when the campaign sought to buy airtime.

The 30 second anti-immigration advert, was paid for by the Donald Trump for President campaign, aired during an National Football League game on NBC on Sunday night and on Fox News. Yet that didn't stop NBC, Fox News, and Facebook from running versions of the ad over the weekend.

The commercial, which many have branded as racist, then urges viewers to "vote Republican".

Fox pulled the ad Sunday "upon further review", said Marianne Gambelli, president of the network's ad sales department.

Former Trump adviser David Urban was also on the panel, and he agreed with Jones that the ad was a "terrible thing to run on" when the president could've spent more time talking about the economy.

On Monday afternoon the company said "this ad violates Facebook's advertising policy against sensational content so we are rejecting it".

Villagers in northern India have crushed a tigress to death with a tractor after she killed a man. Forest department officials say the tigress has never attacked people in the last 10 years.

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

A reporter pointed out that "a lot of people" thought "that ad was offensive", and asked what he was trying to achieve with it. While the Jeff Zucker run CNN never aired the ad in it paid slots, it played audio from the Willie Horton redux effort several times as various anchors commented on the clearly distorted material. "You're telling me something I don't know about".

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump tweeted out an ad featuring Luis Bracamontes, an illegal immigrant who is facing the death penalty for the murder of two police officers.

"Sunday Night Football" - already a ratings hit - likely drew a bigger than usual audience because the game featured the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots and their star quarterbacks, Aaron Rogers and Tom Brady. Users may still share the video on their pages, Facebook said.

According to CNN's Brian Stelter, Fox News has decided it will no longer air the president's racist ad on either of its two cable news channels.

"They wanted that caravan and there are those who say that caravan didn't just happen", Trump claimed.
