Fox Blocks Quinn's Ad

Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn (D) "wasted little time likening his Republican rival Bruce Rauner to one of pop culture's most infamous rich guys: C. Montgomery Burns of The Simpsons, the Chicago Tribune reports.

"The Quinn campaign put a new web ad up making the unflattering comparison as the governor continues a class warfare theme against his general election foe. Quinn argues Rauner's wealth leaves him out of touch with everyday people. The ad features snippets of Burns, the evil owner of Springfield's nuclear power plant in the long-running animated series."

But the ad quickly was blocked on YouTube with a message that reads "This video contains content from FOX, who has blocked it on copyright grounds."
