After NBC-Universal dumped Donald Trump’s beauty pageants from their network — Trump dumped on NBC — Trump gives interview to Fox News
Fox News gives complete report of Trump’s media problems
FOX REPORT ABOUT NBC’S STAND AGAINST TRUMPHere’s how the Fox story described the NBC side of its dispute with Trump: “NBC cut ties with Trump after he, in his announcement to run for president, described immigrants from Mexico as ‘bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists, and some, I assume, are good people.’... ‘At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values,’ the network said in a statement. ‘Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.’... The network added that it was done with Trump's pageants as well.... ‘To that end, the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants, which are part of a joint venture between NBC and Trump, will no longer air on NBC.’...”
NBC’s position vis a vis “Celebrity Apprentice” seemed a little more nuanced and complicated — “... NBC was co-owner with Trump of the pageants and is in business with him as host and producer of the popular show ‘The Celebrity Apprentice.’... The network stated that their reality show with him was kaput, too.... ‘In addition, as Mr. Trump has already indicated, he will not be participating in “The Celebrity Apprentice” on NBC. “Celebrity Apprentice” is licensed from Mark Burnett's United Artists Media Group and that relationship will continue.’...”
PRIOR UNIVISION ACTIONS MENTIONED BY FOXThe Fox report also mentioned that Univision, the nation's largest Spanish-language network, said last week that it wouldn't air the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants, and would cut all future business ties with Mr. Trump.
At the time of the Univision statement, NBC commented only by saying the company doesn't "agree with his positions on a number of issues including his recent comments on immigration." A sister network of NBC is Telemundo, another major Spanish-language TV outlet, which previously had aired Miss Universe pageants before Univision won the contract.
