Ever since President Trump started calling CNN "fake news", the network's anchors have had to interrupt their normal activities to defend their reporting.
This television ad celebrates the successes of President Trump's first 100 days.
President Trump's re-election campaign blasted CNN on Tuesday, saying the network refused to air an ad about Trump's first 100 days in office.
Their communications team called the ad "false" and implied that it violated the network's ad policy.
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.
Mashable is the go-to source for tech, digital culture, and entertainment content for its dedicated and influential audience around the world.
"The Truth Mainstream Media Refuses To Tell", was the headline of the announcement by the Trump campaign.
It also says that "the campaign is continuing President Trump's approach of reaching out to the American people directly by highlighting his work over the first 100 days and fighting back against the continued media bias".
"It will be accepted only if that graphic is deleted. By rejecting our ad, CNN has proven that it supports censorship is biased and fears an opposing point of view", Glassner said.
CNN's trying to cultivate an image as the lone "unbiased" hard-news truthteller on cable TV in the age of Trump, stuck between knee-jerk oppositional MSNBC and "state-run TV" Fox News, as CNN President Jeff Zucker described it recently. Take the time that the president tweeted that anchor Chris Cuomo had propagated "fake news" in an interview with a senator.
As of January 19, Trump was a declared presidential candidate for 2020.
