The Donald Trump campaign Friday announced that ABC, CBS and NBC has joined CNN in a campaign to censor its 100-day ad, “setting a chilling precedent against free speech rights.”
Lara Trump, the wife of Eric Trump and daughter-in-law of President Trump, a consultant for the campaign Donald J. Trump for President Inc., said: “Apparently, the mainstream media are champions of the First Amendment only when it serves their own political views. 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.”
WND reported earlier this month when CNN launched the censor-Trump effort. At that time, campaign Executive Director Michael Glassner said in a statement the action by CNN “is censorship pure and simple.”
“By rejecting our ad, CNN has proven that it supports censorship, is biased and fears an opposing point of view,” he charged.
