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

Fox and NBC to stop airing Trump immigrant ad deemed racist

CNN rejected the same ad, declaring it racist.

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 advertisement aired on "Sunday Night Football" and on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Monday.

Andrew Lincoln to Revisit The Walking Dead Role in Multiple Films (Spoilers)
AMC is moving forward with Rick's story in a series of three movies as The Walking Dead franchise shows no signs of slowing down. So much happened during the episode and after it that another major The Walking Dead story got buried in all the excitement.


The ad was part of Team Trump's campaign to demonize immigrants as the pivotal midterms approach to fire up the president's "America First", nativist base.

"After further review we recognize the insensitive nature of the ad and have chose to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible", the network reportedly said. Fox did not immediately say how many times it aired on Fox News Channel or the Fox Business Network. The ad focuses on the migrant caravan traveling through Mexico, saying it's filled with "dangerous illegal criminals".

Fox News, NBC and Facebook have pulled a Donald Trump campaign advert that has been widely condemned as racist. According to the Daily Beast, Facebook advertising data reveals that millions of Facebook users-somewhere between 2.8 million and 5 million of them-viewed the ad before it was removed.

Khashoggi murder: Saudi Arabia 'sent experts' to cover evidence
Turkey is seeking the extradition of 18 suspects who have been detained in Saudi Arabia , so they can be put on trial in Turkey. Analysts say Saudi authorities appear to be trying to defuse the crisis by shoring up support from within the royal family.


And it's not just NBC that has gotten second thoughts about the ad, which depicts asylum seekers trying to gain lawful entry into the United States as potential psychopathic killers - it's Fox News too.

President Trump on Monday defended an anti-immigrant ad critics called racist after several television networks said they would not run it, calling it "effective" and telling reporters their questions were "offensive". "While the video is allowed to be posted on Facebook, it can not receive paid distribution", a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. When presented with an opportunity to be paid to take a version of this ad, we declined.

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.
