Fox News, NBC and Facebook pull Trump ad widely condemned as racist

President Donald Trump speaks at a rally Sunday Nov. 4 2018 in Chattanooga Tenn

Watch above, via Fox News. 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.

Marianne Gambelli, Fox News' president of advertising sales, said the commercial was pulled on Sunday "upon further review".

"CNN has made it abundantly clear in its editorial coverage that this ad is racist", the network said. The ad also was in rotation Monday morning on cable news channel MSNBC. Approved by President Trump, the ad portrays the caravan as being full of violent criminals and also shows convicted cop killer Luis Bracamontes-an illegal immigrant from Mexico who was sentenced to death in California.

On Twitter, Brad Parscale, Trump's 2020 campaign manager, ignored the decision by Fox to pull the ad. It concludes with a Trump voice-over saying: "I am Donald Trump and I approve this message".

The Yemen war, a "hell on earth" for children
The Saudi-led coalition intervened in Yemen in 2015 to push back the Houthis and return President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi to power. Yemeni government officials said Tuesday that the coalition had sent more than 10,000 new troops towards the battleground city.

NBC says that "after further review", it will stop airing President Donald Trump's campaign advertisement that featured an immigrant accused of murder.

When challenged on the ad being criticized as offensive, the President responded, "A lot of things are offensive". But Trump has made the correlation many times, including during his June 2015 announcement, in Trump Tower, that he was running for president.

"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", said Joe Benarroch, a spokesperson for NBC's advertising sales department. "We have a lot of ads, and they certainly are effective, based on the numbers that we're seeing". Both NBC and Fox News joined CNN in refusing to run a Trump controversial campaign advertisement. It was later revealed that Bracamontes had been released from US custody by Trump ally and former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. A longer version of the ad, not run on NBC, included the false claim that Democrats "let [Brancamontes] into our country" and "let him stay".

Facebook is still allowing its members to post the ad in their news feeds, however. Under its rules, ads must not contain shocking, sensational, disrespectful or excessively violent content.
