Even Fox News Can't Stomach Trump's Racism

NBC and Fox News Channel both said Monday that they will stop airing President Donald Trump’s campaign advertisement that featured an immigrant convicted of murder.

CNN had rejected the same ad, declaring it racist.

Fox pulled the ad Sunday “upon further review,” said Marianne Gambelli, president of the network’s ad sales department. Fox did not immediately say how many times it aired on either Fox News Channel or the Fox Business Network.
Fox News has promoted, nay, been actively egging on Trump's racist attacks. For them to draw the line, now, a day before the election, smacks more of blatant hypocrisy rather than newly-fund morals.

So now Fox Fake News can declare how righteous they are and run the ad as a news clip until tomorrow night

B said...

Is the ad (or the statements in the ad) untrue?

Or just unpalatable to Democrats?

Comrade Misfit said...

Yeah, remember the days of those unpalatable cross-burnings?

B said...

You skirted the question.

Bad comparison.

So is it true? Or not?

The clip of the alleged cop killer may be true . I don't know .
Everything Trump has said in the commercial is false .

B., the cop killer was deported under Clinton and came back under Bush, Part Deux. The “argument” the White House uses to blame the Democrats is that the Democrats didn’t pass laws to magically stop him...

Problem, between 1995 and 2007, R’s controlled both House and Senate for all but 2003-2005, and had the White House as well for four of those years. So, whose fault is it really?

Also, he was sprung by Joe Arpaio, and last I checked, he's not a Democrat either.

But what you're asking is "Did an undocumented immigrant do a bad thing" and the answer is yes AN undocumented immigrant did A bad thing.
What is dishonest about the ad is the insinuation that all undocumented immigrants do bad things, something not born out by the data.

So to answer B’s original question, apparently, yes the ad (and the statements made in the ad) are untrue.

Also misleading, meant to be divisive, and distracts from the issues created from Trump’s policies.
