NBCUniversal Pulls Controversial Trump Campaign Ad
"A lot of things are offensive".
Monday morning, NBC backpedaled, saying in a statement that "after further review we recognize the insensitive nature of the ad and have made a decision to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible".
The ad also showed a clip of the migrant caravan heading toward the US border from Central America with the caption "Who else would Democrats let in?"
In a statement about its own refusal to play the ad, CNN's communications team tweeted that "CNN has made it abundantly clear in its editorial coverage that this ad is racist".
The backlash against President Trump's anti-illegal immigration ad linking the approaching caravan with a cop killer has become so severe that CNN refused to air it, later prompting both Fox News and NBC to pull it after airing.
NBC said Monday that in its review, it recognizes the insensitive nature of the ad.
Unsurprisingly, Trump's reelection campaign manager, Brad Parscale, was none too pleased.
The president tweeted out a video of the ad on October 31, and the ad aired during "Sunday Night Football", which is one of the most watched programs on television, regularly averaging more than 10 million viewers.
A source familiar with the matter told CBS News the ad was produced by the Trump campaign, with an ad buy of $1.5 million across TV and digital platforms. It is akin to blaming Republicans for criminals who entered the country illegally under Presidents Trump or George W. Bush.
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.
Facebook also announced Monday that the ad violated its advertising policy. He said the media was trying to control what you see and think.
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. Parscale didn't mention Fox News. Under its rules, ads must not contain shocking, sensational, disrespectful or excessively violent content.
