CNN is known for its liberal bias. But usually, they at least try to appear unbiased with their ads. But that has all changed now that they are claiming a Trump ad violates their standards because they feel it is misleading. The irony here is just amazing.
“In a move that is sure to ratchet up tension with the White House, cable news channel CNN is declining to run a new Trump 2020 presidential campaign ad, citing falsehoods and the ad’s open attacks on network stars.”
“…the 30-second advertisement — titled “Biden Corruption” — zeroes in on Biden, as well as the media’s apparent defense of the former vice president’s past political activities in Ukraine.
The ad specifically features CNN hosts Chris Cuomo, Jim Acosta, and Don Lemon — all who have been vocally critical of the president.
A spokesperson for the news network told the outlet that the advertisement reportedly doesn’t meet standards.
“CNN is rejecting the ad, as it does not meet our advertising standards,” a spokesperson said. “Specifically, in addition to disparaging CNN and its journalists, the ad makes assertions that have been proven demonstrably false by various news outlets, including CNN.”
“CNN spends all day protecting Joe Biden in their programming, so it’s not surprising that they’re shielding him from truthful advertising too, and then talking to other media outlets about it,” Trump 2020 communications director Tim Murtaugh responded in a statement. “Our ad is entirely accurate and was reviewed by counsel, and CNN wouldn’t even describe to us what they found objectionable. This isn’t a cable news channel anymore, it’s a Democrat public relations firm.”

Of course, they won’t run a pro-Trump ad, it would confuse their viewers that tune in to listen to their Hosts bash Trump 24/7. Their viewers are not allowed to see opposing sides of an argument or what most would consider the truth.
