CNN is reportedly refusing to air a Trump campaign advertisement slamming former Vice President Joe Biden and the media for supposedly defending candidate’s past activities in Ukraine.
The channel won’t promote the ad because it mocks CNN personalities Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon, and Jim Acosta. The ad also hits House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic lawmakers for supposedly protecting the former vice president.
“CNN is rejecting the ad, as it does not meet our advertising standards,” a network spokesperson told The Daily Beast. “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.”
President Donald Trump has been throttling the former vice president for, among other things, allegedly pressuring Ukraine to fire a top prosecutor who was looking into a company tied to his son, Hunter Biden.
“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,” Murtaugh said in a statement.
“This isn’t a cable news channel anymore, it’s a Democrat public relations firm,” he said, noting also that the ad is factually accurate.
“But when President Trump asks Ukraine to investigate corruption, the Democrats want to impeach him,” the ad says. “And their media lapdogs fall in line,” the ad continues with grainy still shots of Lemon, Cuomo and Acosta, a fierce critic of the president.
