CNN won’t run Trump cam­paign ‘fake news’ ad

Cape Breton Post - - World -

NEW YORK — U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s sup­port­ers are ac­cus­ing CNN of cen­sor­ship for not air­ing an ad­ver­tise­ment tout­ing the pres­i­dent’s ac­com­plish­ments, which the net­work said Tues­day it re­jected be­cause it was its own form of fake news.

The ad from Trump’s cam­paign — he be­came a de­clared can­di­date for re­elec­tion in 2020 on Jan. 19 — says that “Amer­ica has rarely seen such suc­cess” and lists a se­ries of ac­tions from the first 100 days of his pres­i­dency.

Michael Glass­ner, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of Trump’s cam­paign said that “CNN is try­ing to si­lence our voice and cen­sor our free speech” be­cause it doesn’t fit the net­work’s nar­ra­tive.
