CNN rejected an ad from US President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign on Thursday, saying it contained inaccuracies and unfairly attacked the network’s journalists, The New York Times reported.
CNN rejects to air Trump campaign ad
STEPANAKERT, OCTOBER 4, ARTSAKHPRESS: As per The Times, it is unusual but not unprecedented for television networks to reject a political advertisement from a presidential candidate.
This ad repeats allegations about former Vice President Joseph Biden’s activities in Ukraine.
Tim Murtaugh, the communications director for Donald Trump’s campaign, responded that the ad was “entirely accurate and was reviewed by counsel.”
“CNN spends all day protecting Joe Biden in their programming,” Murtaugh wrote in a statement. “So it’s not surprising that they’re shielding him from truthful advertising, too.”
