CNN rejects Trump promo ad as “fake news”

President Trump’s campaign has accused CNN of refusing to run its television ad marketing Trump’s first 100 days in office.

On Tuesday, a press release from the campaign indicated CNN is controlling the flow of information by refusing to air anything positive about Trump’s administration in addition to cutting off Trump’s freedom of speech.

“It is absolutely shameful to see the media blocking the positive message that President Trump is trying to share with the country. It’s clear that CNN is trying to silence our voice and censor our free speech because it doesn’t fit their narrative,” Michael Glassner, the Trump campaign’s executive director, said in a statement.

The ad highlights Trump’s accomplishments in his first 100 days, including the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, the authorization of the Keystone XL Pipeline and regulation cuts. It also mentions the upcoming tax cuts proposed by the White House and blasts the media for its biased coverage.

Trump ad fake news graphic

“You wouldn’t know that from watching the news,” the ad’s narrator states as footage shows a group of reporters, including CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell.
CNN has responded, saying the reason they are rejecting the ad is due to the “fake news” graphic.  CNN claims they are 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,” CNN stated.
