Simply put… Fox News caved under the political peer pressure.
Everyone has heard some version of the ‘if the other kids jumped off a bridge, does that mean YOU would too?’ The correct answer — “No” — is implied in the question.
Whoever is making the decisions at FoxNews never quite learned that lesson.
One of this election cycle’s most ‘Impactful’ [oh, how I loathe that word] political ads is at the center of a censorship political firestorm.
Naturally, it’s a Trump ad that’s getting this attention. An ad about illegal immigration.
If you missed it, we’ve included it below. Because you probably wouldn’t have seen it on TV.

Here is a news report about the ad being pulled by the networks, NBC and Fox. (CNN refused to air it at all, calling it racist from the outset.)
Their claims that it was racist may have been why other networks buckled and pulled it as well, including FoxNews.
Fox News, Fox Business and NBC said Monday they will stop airing a campaign ad for President Trump that was widely condemned as racist after NBC ran it during an NFL “Sunday Night Football” game.
“Upon further review, Fox News pulled the ad yesterday and it will not appear on either Fox News Channel or Fox Business Network,” said the broadcaster’s ad sales president, Marianne Gambelli, in a statement to reporters issued shortly after NBC made a similar announcement.
“After further review we recognize the insensitive nature of the ad and have decided to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible,” an NBC CMCSA, -0.42% rep said in a statement to CNN.
But is it really racist? Some are saying that making the connection between an illegal immigrant who was deported several times, has murdered a couple of cops, and fondly wished he could murder more and the mass of humanity making its way to our border now is “racist”.
It would require someone to ONLY see the world through the paradigm of race to make that conclusion. Not really shocking that CNN found that ‘racist’.
Because we DID notice Don Lemon still has a job there after basically calling all White American Males [with the possible exception of the one he comes home to] potential terrorists.
It’s not. In fact, it’s a perfectly relevant political ad, staking out the real issue that American voters need to make real decisions about.
What is the claim?
It tells the story of Luis Bracamontes, now on death row in San Quentin, crossed here through our southern border illegally, killed a number of Americans, brags that he’ll break out and openly wishes he had killed even more.
The Democrats — who support so-called Sanctuary Cities and openly talk about abolishing ICE — oppose every attempt to make illegal border crossings more difficult, and welcome illegal border crossers with the dishonest title: ‘undocumented immigrants’. Under the law, they are still ‘Illegal aliens’. Some regions are even extending voting rights to them, despite their illegal immigrant status.
The end result is that more people will arrive here without being properly screened and will be free to roam the country (many of them intentionally not showing up for their hearing).
The result of THAT is many people are in the country and we have no way of knowing whether they are (aside from their criminal violation of immigration laws) generally agreeable, decent, and honest people, or whether they are criminals among the crowds.
Is this a ‘racist’ concern? Not at all. Statistically, Mexico’s murder rate is a huge red flag.
Homicides in Mexico rose by 16% in the first half of 2018, as the country again broke its own records for violence.
The interior department said over the weekend there were 15,973 homicides in the first six months of the year, compared with 13,751 killings in the same period in 2017.
The number is the highest since comparable records began being kept in 1997, including the peak year of Mexico’s drug war in 2011.
If people are coming across our border from a nation whose murder rate is at all-time highs, should we care about identifying who it is we are letting in?
Democrats and CNN would say no.
FoxNews was pressured into agreeing with them.
The rest of us? We think that’s just common sense.
Or at least, what USED to be known as common sense.
If Fox, NBC and CNN don’t like the ad about what new issue Trump plans to tackle, maybe their delicate palates can handle some good news about what he’s done already. Here’s the clip:

Is that better? Maybe you’d like a cup of warm milk with that, too? Can the adults go back to talking about what still needs fixing now?
That’d be great, thanks.
