CNN Won’t Air Trump Campaign Ad Attacking CNN

CNN has refused to air a Trump campaign ad attacking the media, BuzzFeed reported Tuesday. The ad, titled “Let President Trump Do His Job,” portrays several mainstream news anchors, including various CNN stars, as the president's enemies who “don’t want him to succeed.” The cable-news outlet reportedly asked that changes be made to the advertisement before they consider running it. “CNN would accept the ad if the images of reporters and anchors are removed,” a network spokesperson told BuzzFeed. “Anchors and reporters don’t have ‘enemies,’ as the ad states, but they do hold those in power accountable across the political spectrum and aggressively challenge false and misleading statements and investigate wrong-doing.”
