NBC And Fox News Cut Trump Immigration Ad Some Have Called ‘Racist’

Amber Athey | Media and Breaking News Editor

Fox News and NBC have become the latest media outlets to pull President Donald Trump’s advertisement about illegal immigration from their networks.

CNN deemed the advertisement “racist” last week, but Fox and NBC continued to run the ad, which features an illegal immigrant cop killer and video of the migrant caravan rushing the Mexican border. (RELATED: Media Decries Trump’s Illegal Immigration Ad As ‘Racist’)

“Upon further review, FOX News pulled the ad yesterday and it will not appear on either FOX News Channel or FOX Business Network,” Marianna Gambelli, Fox’s ad sales president said.

NBC similarly announced Monday, “After further review, we recognize the insensitive nature of the ad and have decided to cease airing it across properties as soon as possible.”

WATCH THE AD:

The advertisement blames Democrats for allowing criminal illegal immigrants into the United States and specifically references notorious cop-killer Luis Bracamontes.

CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer called it a “rather racist ad” and said that he would not play it on his program. Anchors on MSNBC made similar programming decisions last week.
