CNN has informed a pro-Trump group that they will not run an ad on their network because it falsely claims Joe Biden will raise taxes on the middle class.
The ad, from America First Action (AFA), the largest outside group to support the President, also asserts Nancy Pelosi promotes socialist policies, something the network also states is false.
Despite the ad being approved on several major networks, Warner Media, which owns CNN, issued an email to the group stating their political ad “does not meet its commercial clearance standards.”
“The ad asserts that Biden will raise taxes on the middle class,” the email continues. “That claim is not adequately substantiated and has been judged false by independent fact-checkers.”
