Donald Trump recently surpassed the first 100-day mark in his presidency, but the battle lines have already been drawn for his 2020 re-election. First it was CNN that refused to air a commercial for Trump’s second term campaign and now the cable news giant is being joined by the three major networks.
ABC, CBS and NBC have all announced that they have no interest in running the 30-second spot, which blasts all four of the networks as being ‘fake news’ and features five different personalities from the various channels – Wolf Blitzer, Rachel Maddow, Andrea Mitchell, George Stephanopoulos and Scott Pelley.
“Apparently, the mainstream media are champions of the First Amendment only when it serves their own political views,” said the president’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump, who is a consultant to the campaign organization. “Faced with an ad that doesn’t fit their biased narrative, CNN, ABC, CBS, and NBC have now all chosen to block our ad. This is an unprecedented act of censorship in America that should concern every freedom-loving citizen.”
Trump’s campaign committee had allotted $1.5 million to run the ad. It has received thousands of views due to the free publicity by the networks’ refusal to show it.
The ad is actually a review of Trump’s first 100 days in office, his accomplishments thus far, and how that message is not being delivered by the four networks.
