The fact that determining the results of the presidential election could take days or weeks, thanks to mail-in voting and legal challenges, has an upside for advertisers. Reuters reports Fox News and NBC are anticipating high demand for the week following the election, with Fox News offering major advertisers the option to extend their campaigns if results are not in after the first week.

After Tuesday’s presidential debate, during which the President made claims about the integrity of the election results and refused to agree to accept the outcome, Facebook announced it will prohibit ads “with content that seeks to delegitimize the outcome of an election. That would include calling a method of voting fraudulent, or using isolated incidents of voter fraud to delegitimize results.” Facebook also removed ads from Trump’s campaign claiming that allowing refugees from abroad will increase the US risk of COVID-19, and said it will ban ads that “praise, support or represent militarized movements and QAnon.”

Moderator Chris Wallace called the presidential debate “awful” during an interview on Fox News’ Bill Hemmer Reports. “I felt like I had gotten together all of the ingredients. I had the baked this beautiful delicious cake. And then, frankly, the President put his foot in it, and that was frustrating. And it was frustrating for me because I tried hard to prepare for a serious debate, much more frustrating and more importantly for the American people because they didn’t get the debate they wanted, and that they deserved.”

While the Commission on Presidential Debates said it planned to adjust its format after Tuesday’s much-criticized face-off to allow for “a more orderly discussion of the issues,” the president was having none of it. “Why would I allow the Debate Commission to change the rules for the Second and Third debates when I easily won last time?” Trump tweeted. Next in the hot seat: C-SPAN’s Steve Scully, for round two on October 15.

FlipNarrative aims to amplify underrepresented and misrepresented voices, and has numerous projects already in development. “Audiences have shifted to TV in droves, increasing pressure on studios to offer content that reflects the ‘real world’, but despite this, Hollywood and the industry still appears to be averse in making inclusive films and TV shows that are truly reflective of international audiences,” said Zuaiter. “We want and inclusive and diverse industry to become a reality, not a priority.”
