CNN, ABC, NBC, and CBS all ban Trump's new campaign ad

Trump’s 2020 campaign arm put out a new ad on Monday. The ad praised Trump for his accomplishments in his first 100 days. But a lot of good that does him when mainstream media refuses to even air the ad.

CNN, ABC, NBC, and CBS have now all rejected Trump’s campaign ad.

The networks have banned the ad because it states things that simply are not true. The biggest problem they have with the ad is that it labels the media as “fake news.”

CNN said: “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.”

22. Someone w dementia, who reverts to doing the things

they knew how to do well before the dementia. He has always said stupid stuff, but in these last few weeks, his staff try to cover for him 100pc of the time. Ivanka said she will be reading everything before he signs it. It's not like she has some special experience, but his family and staff are propping him up.

None of the tRumps are exactly Mensa material, but my god, surely there is a limit to how much they can put over on taxpayers. We should DEMAND a mental competency test on tRump, before he destroys this country completely. WHO is really running the country?

It's really mostly about his need for the adoring people who support him enthusiastically. He wants that non stop. Over and over.

This whole thing with him is bizarre and evil.

Couldn't help to notice that Trump added Andrea Mitchell/Mrs. Greenspan in his collection of "fake news".

Last edited Sat May 6, 2017, 11:46 PM - Edit history (1)

Mitchell, ironically, was if anything a little too cozy with Trump and his stooges during the campaign - and her husband, of course, has always been a Republican.

They are, nevertheless, two the most hated people by Trump's base. Wonder why...

42. Exactly. No sense of decency/responsibility about the larger lies.

NPR keeps giving interview airtime to rethug congressmen to lie about the bill, and other events, with barely a question, never mind an outright challenge, to their assertions.

13. Good point.

They not only played that ad all the live-long day, they gave it mountains of coverage in the newscasts themselves - which guaranteed that everyone and their brother would see it at least 30 or 40 times by the time the election rolled around.

And even then, they had to steal it from Kerry.

Maybe at least this will wake up the media.

16. IT'S NOT ABOUT RUNNING AGAIN

It doesn't make any sense - EXCEPT- it probably doesn't cost him anything, AND it keeps the Trump brand in the public eye AND it reassures his base that he is doing something (laff, laff, gag).
The money pot is being filled and that is what is important to him.

Promotion. That is exactly what he did yesterday by sending the buses to get the house members who just voted on his bill that 90pc admit they never even read. We know he sure didn't read it. All a big show to get some momentum behind his BS and Trumpcare.

23. In a way it does, since it allows them to play the victim.

Then again, they always do anyway.

I'd say to CNN and the networks: go for it - and be sure to publicize any obscenities or death threats from Trump's paid trolls.

Can't keep them for themselves, unless it's another campaign. They can also return the money. I read that somewhere, but I can't swear to accuracy.
