Fox News Axes Dem Mega-Donor's Impeachment Ad After Trump Tweets

Fox News Axes Dem Mega-Donor's Impeachment Ad After Trump Tweets”

Fox News will no longer run an ad from billionaire Tom Steyer calling for President Donald Trump's impeachment.

In a letter to Fox on Friday, Steyer's lawyers argued that not running the ad amounted to a breach of contract, and said the channel had given Steyer no explanation for why it had pulled the ad.

The cable news obsessed Trump saw the ad, flipped out, called Fox News to complain, and an American news network suffocated the First Amendment because an ad hurt Trump's feelings. "The cancellation is not only a breach of your agreement with Mr. Steyer - it is also a profound failure of journalistic integrity, a suppression of constitutionally protected speech, and likely a outcome of inexcusable political pressure".

"If Fox News is siding with Trump and trying to silence us, they must be afraid of what we have to say", Tom Steyer said in a statement.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday downplayed the idea that Democrats will seek to impeach Trump if they take back the House in next year's midterm elections. The early morning program is known as Trump's favorite source of news, and Trump tweeted a thank you to "Fox and Friends" for its "really great job and show!" just minutes after the Steyer tweet.

The ad, which is reportedly part of an $11 million campaign, continues to run on Fox-owned local television stations, along with other major television networks.

Steyer purchased a second week of national Fox News advertising spots on October 27, as part of an $11 million ad buy. "The only plausible explanation seems to be that Fox News capitulated to political pressure from the Trump administration itself", Steyer's lawyer Brad Deutsch said in a letter to Abernethy on November 3, which was obtained by The Washington Post.

Steyer is a prominent and well heeled liberal activist, and has rumored to be a potential candidate for office.
