How did the Mainstream Liberal Media react to this ad? Sadly, to get at the heart of the story, one has to read an overseas online media:
"Donald Trump's ongoing feud with TV networks not named 'Fox News' has clicked into a new gear as ABC, CBS and NBC have all joined CNN in refusing to run an ad from the president's re-election campaign committee.
The ad shows hosts from all four networks under a banner that reads 'FAKE NEWS.'
It's the Trump campaign's first commercial since winning the White House, and although it is three years out from the next election, it declares the nation has 'rarely seen such success.'
The ad blasts the 'fake news' media for failing to see things that way – and includes CNN's Wolf Blitzer, Also included are MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and Andrea Mitchell, CBS's Scott Pelley and ABC's George Stephanopoulos in its rogues gallery."
"Apparently, the mainstream media are champions of the First Amendment only when it serves their own political views," Lara Trump, the president's daughter-in-law and campaign consultant, said in a statement Friday.
"Faced with an ad that doesn't fit their biased narrative, CNN, ABC, CBS, and NBC have now all chosen to block our ad. This is an unprecedented act of censorship in America that should concern every freedom-loving citizen," she added.
In statement on Tuesday, CNN said it had no problem airing the ad if the network agrees to remove the offending graphic. "CNN requested that the advertiser remove the false graphic that the mainstream media is 'fake news,'" the cable channel said. "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."
NBC issued its own statement saying that,"Consistent with our policies, we have agreed to accept the ad if the inaccurate graphic — which refers to journalists as 'fake news' — is corrected."
Got that folks? It's a "false graphic" and must be corrected, revised, or otherwise EDITED to be considered for airing on these fake news outlets.
Never mind that since the early morning hours of November 9th, these "protectors of the first amendment" have mounted a FALSE CAMPAIGN of their own with the non-stop accusation that the Trump Campaign Colluded with the Russian Government to defeat Hillary.
CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, and the Washington Post---all extreme left-wing news media outlets---still can't come to the conclusion there was no collusion. Case in point is this live interview between CNN's Wolf Blitzer and Diane Feinstein:
"After months of accusations about President Donald Trump colluding with Russian officials in the run up to the 2016 election, leading Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Wednesday there is no evidence to support the claim.
Appearing on CNN, the California lawmaker was asked by Wolf Blitzer if Democrats have evidence that there was in fact collusion between Trump campaign officials and Russia during the campaign and without hesitating, Feinstein said they do not.
“Not at this time,” Feinstein said.
The bluntness of her answer prompted Blitzer to reply, “Well, that’s a pretty precise answer.”
Precisely Mr. Blitzer---THERE IS NO EVIDENCE---because the entire "story" was made up in the minds of a liberal media still in complete denial that Donald J. Trump is the 45th President of the United States.
