An ad by progressive billionaire Tom Steyer ran once on Fox News and then was stopped after Donald Trump saw it and threw a Twitter tantrum. Fox News made a decision to impeach his new ad instead.

"Due to the strong negative reaction to their ad by our viewers, we could not in good conscience take their money", Jack Abernethy, Fox News co-president, told AdWeek. No details about how such viewer discontent was measured have been offered yet, though.

According to Aleigha Cavalier, a spokeswoman for Steyer, the network did not return the money from the ad buy.

The video ran on a wide range of networks, including Fox News. The early morning program is known as Trump's favorite source of news, and Trump tweeted a thank you to "Fox and Friends" for its "really great job and show!" just minutes after the Steyer tweet.

Eurozone Growth Set to Accelerate as Threats Subside

The ad was produced by Need to Impeach, a Steyer-backed group that has started a petition calling for Trump's impeachment, according to CNN. But by Saturday, Steyer sent an email to those who had signed the petition, saying that Fox pulled the ad off the air "without warning".

While Fox claims the audience reaction is what sparked the removal of the advertisement, Steyer's lawyer sent a letter to Abernethy, claiming Fox News is censoring a private citizen in order to appease the President. In it, Deutsch accusing Fox News of catering in the extreme to their viewers' wishes, at the cost of "journalistic integrity". "The cancellation is not only a breach of your agreement with Mr. Steyer - it is also a profound failure of journalistic integrity, a suppression of constitutionally protected speech, and likely a effect of inexcusable political pressure". "Are they making the same decisions with respect to the news?"

Tom Steyer wants President Trump to be impeached.

In the TV ad, Steyer said Trump has "brought us to the brink of nuclear war, obstructed justice at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and in direct violation of the constitution, he's taken money from foreign governments and threatened to shut down news organizations that report the truth". "If that isn't a case for impeaching and removing a risky president", he asks, "then what has our government become?" When pressed about Mr Steyer's ad and whether Democrats would prioritise impeachment proceedings if they were to gain a majority in Congress in next year's midterm elections on Sunday, Nancy Pelosi, Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, said: "It's not someplace that I think we should go".
