Watch the Climate Change Ad Fox News Refused to Run

Popular

Fox News declined to run an ad that calls out the network for refusing to acknowledge human-caused climate change.

The advertisement, sponsored by Friends of the Earth, shows a mock Fox News anchor reporting on extreme weather events while the newsroom slowly floods and then asks, "What will it take for Fox News to accept that humans are changing the climate?"

Fox News, meanwhile, agreed to run other ads by Partnership for Responsible Growth (PRG) that show conservative leaders talking about the need for climate action. PRG is also behind an ongoing 12-part climate change ad series in the Wall Street Journal.
