CNN, which has been called fake news by President Trump, balked at airing a new campaign ad by the president’s reelection committee because it labeled the media as his “enemies.”
The campaign accused CNN of censorship, by the network said that they requested changes to the ad to make it factual.
“CNN would accept the ad if the images of reporters and anchors are removed. 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,” according to a CNN spokesperson.
This decision by CNN isn’t about making the Trump ad factual, but one bent on eliminating any negative imagery of the liberal media as a whole to maintain the pretense that they are actually trying to cover the president in an even-handed manner despite their anti-Trump narrative.
