by Dolapo Adelana

The war between US president, Donald Trump and CNN is far from over has the media outfit and the president’s reelection campaign are trading words over accusations of “fake news” in the campaign’s latest advertisement.

The campaign’s executive director, Michael Glassner, accused CNN of stifling their free speech rights saying they are being “censored” because their ad’s message “doesn’t fit [CNN’s] narrative.”

Responding, CNN in a tweet via its communications arm said the graphic calling it a “fake news” outfit was “false”, adding that the ad would only be run if the graphic was deleted.

Glassner described CNN’s response as “shameful” saying it proved that the cable outlet “fears an opposing point of view.”

“The media [is] blocking the positive message that President Trump is trying to share with our country,” Glassner said.

At one point, the advertisement spells out “Fake News” and a narrator says “you wouldn’t know [about Trump’s accomplishments] from watching the news.”

CNN’s evening anchor, Wolf Blitzer, is featured in the graphic, alongside Scott Pelley of CBS, Andrea Mitchell and Rachel Maddow of NBC and George Stephanopoulos of ABC.
