Fox News Has DNC Ad Pulled from YouTube

Fox News Channel has made a claim with YouTube that this rapid response ad from the DNC be removed. Late today it was. The ad, which went up on YouTube yesterday, is about the Republican primary for U.S. Senate in Florida between Gov. Charlie Crist and Marco Rubio. Because the ad featured copyrighted footage throughout, FNC had enough of an argument to pull the ad.

Since pushing play will do you no good, I’ll tell you what you would have seen: the ad was made up entirely of Crist’s interview with Greta Van Susteren from the other night during which the Gov. criticized Rubio for spending $130 on a haircut and even joked that he may have also gotten a back wax. Cutouts of Rubio pop up with a back wax sound effect.

The latest polling has Rubio up by a whopping 34 points.
