Will it offend too much of their audience?

Fox News Refuses to Air Ad for Oscar-Nominated Anti-Fascism Doc During Hannity ... nnity.html

Fox News said no to a 30-second national ad buy for the Oscar-nominated documentary short A Night at the Garden, which portrays a 1939 Nazi rally of 20,000 Americans gathered in Manhattan, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Before Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott deemed the ad “not appropriate for our air,” the short film’s distributor bought an ad to air locally in Los Angeles on Monday during the primetime Hannity hour.

But the local ad for the short – which features uncut footage of American fascists marching into Madison Square Garden and contains the warning “It Can Happen Here” – was cut when Fox News shifted from its scheduled programming to Trump’s rally at the El Paso County Coliseum, where the president encouraged an adoring crowd of 6,500 to boo the press, praised the law enforcement capabilities of the German shepherd, and claimed that “illegal immigration hurts all Americans.”

When the distributor, Field of Vision, learned the local ad was bumped by the president’s speech, they attempted to buy a national spot on Hannity, but the network did not accept the purchase. Fox News does not have control over regional ad buys, but can reject spots set to air nationally.

“The film shines a light on a time when thousands of Americans fell under the spell of a demagogue who attacked the press and scapegoated minorities using the symbols of American patriotism,” Night at the Garden director Marshall Curry told The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s amazing to me that the CEO of Fox News would personally inject herself into a small ad buy just to make sure that Hannity viewers weren’t exposed to this chapter of American history.”

In a statement to The Week, president for ad sales at Fox News Marianne Gambelli said that the “ad in question is full of disgraceful Nazi imagery regardless of the film’s message and did not meet our guidelines.” To fulfill the contract, the ad will now run in Los Angeles during Hannity on Thursday.


Ummm ... it's full of "Nazi imagery" because it's a historical documentary ... :roll: :roll: :roll: ... not inviting people to a neo-Nazi rally.

I LOVE that the studio or whoever TRIED to advertise here, maybe expecting something like this so they can shed a light on the active nazi network aka Fox News.

The funny party about Hannity is he is a child with the IQ of a child. Knows nothing, believes in nothing. PERFECT for the Nazi party.

"Corporate Democrat" phrase created at the same place "Angry Mob" was...People keep falling for rightwing talking points. How sad.
