President Trump’s First Re-Election Ad, and CNN Refuses to Run It, by John Hinderaker.
As usual, the Trump administration has to rely on its own devices to get its message out, the press being occupied elsewhere.
CNN refused to run the ad on the ground that it is inaccurate. The ad features several CNN personalities among the media people who are pictured while the voiceover says, “The president’s enemies don’t want him to succeed.”
“CNN would accept the ad if the images of reporters and anchors were removed,” a network spokeswoman told DailyMail.com.
“Anchors and reporters don’t have ‘enemies,’ as the ad states, but they do hold those in power accountable across the political spectrum and aggressively challenge false and misleading statements and investigate wrong-doing,” the spokeswoman added.
Sure, CNN, sure.
The [Trump] campaign’s executive director, Michael Glassner, noted that Americans support Trump, in part, ‘because of their complete mistrust in the mainstream news media, and the president’s refusal to allow their biased filter to interfere with his message.’
‘Today, CNN provided further proof that the network earns this mistrust every day by censoring President Trump’s message to the American people by blocking our paid campaign ad,’ Glassner added.
