From the Hollywood Reporter:
CNN won’t run a 30-second advertisement purchased by Donald Trump’s re-election campaign after the network decided it does not meet their standards.
The advertisement, which was tweeted by the president last week, relates to Joe Biden’s conduct toward Ukraine while he served as vice president. In it, a narrator derisively refers to CNN personalities Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo and Jim Acosta as “media lapdogs.”
“CNN is rejecting the ad, as it does not meet our advertising standards,” a network spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter. “Specifically, in addition to disparaging CNN and its journalists, the ad makes assertions that have been proven demonstrably false by various news outlets, including CNN.”
