Fox News and NBC Cave, Pull Trump Caravan Ad After Major Backlash
Fox News and Fox Business pulled Trump’s caravan ad after a huge backlash from critics who decried the 30-second video as “racist.”
First CNN refused to air the caravan ad and lectured Donald Trump Jr. after he took a swipe at CNN for refusing to show the real threats to the US.
Fox News has now joined CNN after it caved to pressure.
In a statement to Mediaite, Fox News ad sales president Marianne Gambelli said, “Upon further review, Fox News pulled the ad yesterday and it will not appear on either Fox News Channel or Fox Business Network.”
The ad focuses on the migrant caravan marching towards our border and features cop killer Luis Bracamontes, who was deported twice and snuck back in, murdered two police officers and was seen laughing in court about his crimes.
“The migrant caravan must be stopped,” the narrator of Trump’s caravan ad says after it shows cop-killer Luis Bracamontes lamenting he should have murdered more officers.
President Trump wants to secure our borders and keep Americans safe–this is now considered “racist” by the left and mainstream media.
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

President Trump also ran this stunning ad on NBC during Sunday night football and the left went ballistic.
NBC caved and pulled the caravan ad as well.
Mediaite reported that after a backlash, which included far-left actress Debra Messing, whose show Will & Grace airs on NBC — the network said it was pulling the ad from the air.
Fox’s announcement came shortly after NBC’s statement on the ad, said Mediaite.
This type of censorship is another reason why Americans flock to alternative media and social media for real news, however; the tech tyrants are doing everything they can to shut down conservative voices across social media as well.
President Trump’s 2020 Campaign Chair Brad Parscale slammed the networks and tech giants for censoring the caravan ad.
“So, @NBCNews @CNN @facebook have chosen to stand with those ILLEGALLY IN THIS COUNTRY. Instead of standing with LEGAL IMMIGRANTS and those that follow our laws. The #FakeNewsMedia and #PaloAltoMafia are trying to control what you see and how you think. STOP THE CARAVAN!” Brad Parscale said in a tweet Monday.
