Statement by Nita Chaudhary, co-founder of Ultraviolet on the rejection of the ad:
“It is shameful that Fox is standing by and standing up for Dobbs, Erickson and Williams. Their disgusting, false and flat-out sexists remarks have no place on television. It is time for the executives at Fox to wake-up realize it is not the 1950’s. We have low expectations for Fox News but this seems to be a new low, even for them.”
More than 65,000 people have signed Ultraviolet’s petition demanding Fox fire Dobbs. You can see the petition here: http://act.weareultraviolet.org/sign/fox_fire_lou_dobbs/?akid=463.7916.8FGA0j&rd=1&t=1
