NBC Pulls Advertisement Supported by President Trump

(New York, NY-AP) — NBC and Fox News are no longer going to air an immigration ad from President Trump that has been widely panned as racially divisive. The ad highlights an illegal immigrant Luis Bracamontes who was convicted of killing two cops in California and attempts to connect Bracamontes to the migrant caravan traveling through Mexico to the U.S. border.

It aired last night on NBC’s Sunday Night Football. NBC says they “recognize the insensitive nature” of the ad and have decided to cease airing. When asked about the ad by reporters, President Trump said “a lot of things are offensive, your questions are offensive.”

NBC Is Picking Up Brooklyn Nine-Nine Show

(SL) – NBC is picking up the show “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and fans are rejoicing. A day after Fox announced they were ending the Andy Samberg police sitcom, NBC stepped up and said they would pick up the series for a sixth season.

In a statement, the chairman of NBC Entertainment said, “Ever since we sold this show to Fox I’ve regretted letting it get away, and it’s high time it came back to its rightful home.” The show has drawn in a dedicated fan base since its debut in 2013. Fox apparently dropped “Brooklyn” to make room for other shows, causing a widespread uproar.
