President Trump’s reelection campaign got an early jump when it released a 30-second ad commemorating the first 100 days of the Trump presidency.But CNN refused to let the ad run on their network.Why?Because it includes this brief image:
And thanks to CNN deciding to act like butt-hurt babies and refusing to air the ad, this 30-second ad is getting a lot of attention.So, thanks CNN!Honestly, these guys will never learn.Had they simply let the ad run on their network, they wouldn’t have shined such a bright spotlight on it.But thanks to them, more people will probably see the ad – and at no cost to the Trump reelection campaign.And rather than simply let it go and not add fuel to the fire, CNN has to double-down and make excuses for why they didn’t run it.( The CNN tweet : CNN has requested that the advertiser remove the false graphic that says the mainstream media is "fake news." The mainstream media is not fake news and therefore the ad is false. Per our policy it will be accepted only if that graphic is deleted. Those are the facts.")
Yes, that will help enormously – in getting even more people to watch the ad.I do not understand why CNN doesn’t catch on that battling President Trump in the way they are, not only are they further harming their own brand, but they are giving Mr. Trump an even bigger platform.For all the snarky criticism about President Trump being “nothing but a reality TV star,” these guys still don’t get it. Trump being a media star is exactly why he has mastered the art of marketing himself.He knows how to use media to his advantage. Something CNN clearly hasn’t figured out how to do for themselves.But thanks CNN.Had it not been for your childish tantrum in refusing to let this ad appear on your network, I probably wouldn’t have bothered to include it in a post.
Which only goes to show in your efforts to undermine President Trump, once again, you’ve done him a huge favor.
