CNN Refuses to Air President Trump’s “First 100 Days” Advertisement

This is what a biased mainstream media looks like folks.

The Trump campaign is taking CNN to task for their decision to unfairly censor a recent advertisement from the Trump team that cheered the President’s first 100 days worth of accomplishments.

The Trump team’s Michael Glassner was astounded at CNN’s disturbing decision to censor the President. “This is censorship pure and simple. By rejecting our ad, CNN has proven that it supports censorship is biased and fears an opposing point of view. President Trump’s loyal supporters know the truth: The mainstream media mislead, misguide, deceive, and distract,” he added.

CNN responded to the Trump administration’s concerns by calling the add a lie.

“CNN requested that the advertiser remove the false graphic that says mainstream media is “fake news.” The mainstream media is not fake news, and therefore the ad is false. Per our policy, it will be accepted only if that graphic is deleted. Those are the facts.”

It seems like the comment in the advertisement that CNN is referring to is actually an OPINION. While CNN’s PR department calls their reasoning “facts,” the simple truth is that deciding what is “fake news” and what is not, is simply a matter of opinion.

Sadly, CNN has apparently now decided to name themselves the arbiter of truth in everyone’s opinions. This latest decision is incredibly misguided and sets an awful precedent. CNN has just decided to reject a “paid political advertisement” that had been cleared by the FCC and offers NO FACTUALLY INCORRECT information. Perhaps the opinion put forward of the media is misguided or unfair, but it’s by no means wrong on the “FACTS” as CNN argues. The ad offers an opinion that the mainstream media is the real progenitor of “fake news” and that opinion is as valid as CNN’s.

Here’s the supposedly controversial advertisement CNN felt they just had to censor…

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
