Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, February 15, 2019

The CEO of Fox News rejected a 30-second advertisement warning about the dangers of fascism, saying it was inappropriate, The Hollywood Reporter revealed Wednesday. The ad, titled "It Can Happen Here," is for the Academy Award-nominated documentary short A Night at the Garden, featuring footage shot during a 1939 pro-Nazi rally at Madison Square Garden. Originally, the ad was going to run locally in Los Angeles during Sean Hannity's show Monday night, but instead the network aired President Trump's rally in El Paso.

Good timing. Pence and Mother are visiting Auschwitz to get a few pointers.

30 seconds of truth is just too much for them.

6 years ago they'd have snatched it up in a New York minute.

Not enough shiny boots, death's head pins, weird haircuts and fealty to Trump in the ad...

The comment that the commercial was "inappropriate" is interesting. How is it inappropriate, because it runs counter to Faux daily brainwashing? Because it shows the end result of what Faux is trying to accomplish?

Corporate control of Government is essential to Fascism. Fox is a Corporation. US airwaves are the last place one should expect to hear free speech.

I'm sure that about 80% of Americans have seen it on all the major networks.
