Far-left network CNN sent out a cease and desist letter to the Trump campaign after the campaign released an ad showing CNN praise the government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. CNN however is claiming that the ad is “deceptive” because they say the ad makes it seem that the network is agreeing that President Trump saved lives.
“A lawyer for CNN’s parent company WarnerMedia has written a cease-and-desist letter to President Trump’s re-election campaign over the misleading contents of a new campaign ad,” CNN announced Monday. “WarnerMedia says the Trump ad is misusing CNN news coverage in a way that’s ‘false, misleading and deceptive.’”
“My administration will take all necessary steps to safeguard our citizens from this threat,” President Trump said at the beginning of the ad.
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
The ad then cuts to various critics of Trump’s initial ban on travel from China, including presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, who accuses Trump of “xenophobia.”
That criticism is followed by a clip from CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and Dr. Sanjay Gupta discussing the social distancing steps recommended by the federal government and taken by the states.
“Is it accurate that if these steps had not been put in place, … it could have been 2 million people down here in the United States?” asks Blitzer, while images of an airport screen showing “cancelled” flights and a Chinese airliner flash on the screen. “Yes,” says Gupta.
WATCH the clip below:
Radical opinion commentator for CNN Brian Stelter says that the clip is “misleading” because it suggests that Blitzer and Gupta are referring to the President’s Chinese travel ban.
