President Trump has often referred to several major news networks as “fake news” this is typically when the outlet isn’t a far-right Trump-supporting one like Breitbart.
Essentially, like Ellen DeGeneres said on her show last week, Trump doesn’t like it when the media is against him. Naturally, no one does. But you can’t have it both ways. You can’t be President of the United States and be a bigot who incites hate without getting any negative attention.
According to HuffPo, major news networks such as CNN, ABC, CBS, and NBC are refusing to air a Donald trump 2020 campaign ad due to the fact that it is a direct attack the mainstream media.
Trump produced a 30-second spot that focuses on the president’s accomplishments” during his first 100 days in office. Trump talks about the permitting the Keystone pipeline like it was a good thing and also confirming Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. “You wouldn’t know it from watching the news,” a voiceover says.
Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump called it an “unprecedented act of censorship in America that should concern every freedom-loving citizen” in a post written on DonaldJTrump.com. Is she right? Should the networks air the commercial even though they do not agree with it?
Trump continued, “Apparently, the mainstream media are champions of the First Amendment only when it serves their own political views.”
Lara then showed up on Fox News and said,
“It’s a great ad and it highlights all the wonderful things that have happened that you don’t hear about every day because some people don’t watch Fox News.”
CNN had a comment for Lara,
“The mainstream media is not fake news, and therefore the ad is false and per policy will be accepted only if that graphic is deleted,” the network said.
Should they run the spot or not?
