    Fox News Stopped Airing This Trump Impeachment Ad

    Less than three weeks ago, California billionaire and political activist Tom Steyer started a campaign to impeach President Trump, running ads in all 50 states.

    The video ran on a wide range of networks, including Fox News. But by Saturday, Steyer sent an email to those who had signed the petition, saying that Fox pulled the ad off the air “without warning.”

    Steyer called the move a violation of his First Amendment rights, accusing Fox of seeking to appease Trump, its “#1 fan.” Fox didn’t announce its decision until Monday, at which time Fox News co-president Jack Abernethy justified the move by saying that “due to the strong negative reaction to their ad by our viewers, we could not in good conscience take their money.”

    This surprises no one. Fox is the media arm of Trump/GOP.

    the ad is kinda silly. He makes a couple of exaggerated claims. There are technically grounds to impeach Trump over his conflict of interest issues. But, the exaggerated claims about "being accused of obstruction of justice" and "trying to shut down the media", not so much.

    I don't see it as any breach of first amendment rights, FOX can run what ads they care to. It is typical of them to broadcast what their viewers want to hear and not the news.

    I get why you want to keep things as vague as possible and keep the actual ad several layers deep into links.

    Shouldn't be surprised that you want more racist propaganda put out there, you must ACTUALLY think that type thing will help your causes.

    The whole story has little to nothing to do with fox news people as much as it is pushing literal tucking terroristic and genocidal propaganda makes these assholes the good guys.

    But no, fox doesn't want to put that racist bigotry on their media outlet so we have this thread.
