The New York Times plans to air a television ad for the first time in seven years during the Oscar’s Award Ceremony Sunday night. The ad focuses on the “truth.”
During the simple ad, statements flash across the screen beginning with, “The truth is our nation is more divided than ever.” The statements that follow are popular phrases or versions of the truth that are used by Trump and his supporters and then statements used by opponents of Trump.
Some of the pro-Trump statements included: “The truth is the media is dishonest; The truth is we have to protect our borders; The truth is climate change is a hoax; The truth is Obamacare isn’t affordable; The truth is all lives matter.”
While some of the statements from Trump’s opponents include: “The truth is women’s rights are human rights; The truth is his refugee policy is a backdoor Muslim ban; The truth is we need a full investigation of Russian ties; The truth is this country was built by immigrants; The truth is we need new restrictions on gun control.”
The rate at which the messages roll across the screen starts slow, but begins to speed up before the final statements are shown.
“The truth is hard to find. The truth is hard to know. The truth is more important now than ever,” the ad says at the end.
