One of JD’s memes pointed out a valuable lesson a while back. If one politician says it’s sunny and the other says it’s stormy, most media will try to argue that both are equally true, when they could just turn around and look out the window. If that isn’t bad enough, NBC just took money to air a Republican racist screed against the caravan that is not only full of hate, but also, as easy to prove false as JD’s meme. Shame on NBC!

The Traitor Tot ad they SHOULD have run is the one with the montage of clips in which he calls Ted Cruz everything but a gentleman.  Speechless. (Even Fox didn't run thiis one https://www.rawstory.com/2018/11/trumps-2020-campaign-manager-attacks-cnn-facebook-not-running-ad-thats-also-racist-fox/)

RESIST AND PERSIST!

They and Faux have both already pulled the ad, as has Facebook:
NBC, Fox News, Facebook pull Trump campaign ad linking immigration, crime
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-advertising/nbc-fox-news-pull-trump-campaign-ad-linking-immigration-crime-idUSKCN1NA298

I agree never showing a better choice, yet CNN did so much coverage of the ad some say they ran it about as much as if they had accepted it.

NBC needs and must announce publicly that it apologizes for the ad it ran, immediately.

Sadly that despicable ad doesn't shock me, trump & his regime now panicking have obviously stooped to new lows!!! 😠

Thank you for telling NBC to donate the money it made from airing Trump’s racist ad to an aid organization working with the migrant caravan.
Thanx JL

Thanx TC

As if we needed more proof that tRump is not just a pr*ck, but a super-pr*ck. Hell, these days, nearly all (if not all) Republicans are pr*cks!

'It was too late, but the shame-storm did make NBC alter their minds:
“After further review we recognise the insensitive nature of the ad and have decided to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible,” an NBC spokesperson said.' (AustralianBC).

After further review? 🐄💩

'Fox News, which had also been running the ad, issued a statement about taking it down shortly after NBC, according to a CNN report.'

'"Upon further review, Fox News pulled the ad yesterday and it will not appear on either Fox News Channel or Fox Business Network,” Marianne Gambelli, Fox News’ president of advertisement sales, told CNN in a statement.'

'Facebook has also decided to stop selling advertising space to the clip, although users will still be able to share it on their accounts.'

'Mr Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, tweeted that NBC News, CNN and Facebook had chosen “to stand with those ILLEGALLY IN THIS COUNTRY”.'
Parscale of course didn’t mention Faux News in his statement.

Good luck with voting, America!

Despicable. I agree with so many of the comments above. NBC does need to apologize for airing it. tRump shall pay for his ugly sins. Hope he will be crying away, when the mighty Blues win tomorrow.
Thanks TomCat

NBC? The same folks who gave $92 million to the lying, bigoted, former Faux News twit, whatever her name is? Shame on their asses!

As Cyndi Lauper once sang, "money changes everything." Shame on NBC for taking the $ and airing that despicable ad. I'm hoping for good news tomorrow night for Democrats. Don't forget, Colbert will be live tomorrow night!

Love all those who can see the terrible injustice being done daily by the Don-con hate mongering to influence voters. He has an agenda. Use 'fear' to control the minds of his followers. The issue is that there are so many people who live according to the messages of fear. For instance, any newspaper that is only printed with positive information goes out of business in a day, pretty much,.... I suppose this instinct for news which is based in fearful information answers our basic need to survive anything which could harm us. So, we, as a race, crave the 'bad' news over the cheerful. It helps us to navigate the waters, so to speak. It's no secret that Trump figured out this tactic decades ago. It's working and will continue to work. There are just too many people who fear losing their wealth, being harmed by some stranger, not gaining whatever they feel entitled to in this life-time. They're not particularly interested in the whole of our world, the people, the health of planet Earth, nor the suffering which is made when greed is the driving force of our economy. That's why Trump is so successful. Greed. Fear. - these are the messages of a power monger who brags: "I could shot a man in the middle of NYC and keep all my voters loyalty!" As we are witnessing, - he has them figured right. He will continue to use his winning method. We must understand that criticism will not change anyone's basic fears and sense of wanting more. We have to find a new approach to balancing our nation, and the world, with a sense of there is ENOUGH, once we feel safe, unthreatened, and reach out to our world with plans that alleviate our fears, and calm the compulsions of greed.

From Bob Woodward’s book “Fear” quoting candidate Trump on 31 March 2016:

“Real power is — I don’t even want to use the word — fear.”

Hence why we are seeing Diaper Don stoking the flames of hatred. And the hell with accuracy. It does not matter. For Diaper Don, the only thing that matters is winning to keep power!

It would seem that NBC is using that rationale, only for them, the only thing that matters is ad revenue and market share, wherever and whatever that market is.

If you are a Democrat and have not yet voted, Get your ass in gear and get down to your polling place! If you are a Republican, sit back and relax. You've got an abundance of time!
