CNN sends Trump campaign cease-and-desist letter for misleading ad
WarnerMedia says the Trump ad is misusing CNN news coverage in a way that’s “false, misleading and deceptive.”
The Trump campaign had no immediate response to a request for comment from CNN Business.
I guess his so called Fake news channel is about to show him what reality is. No wonder McConnell and Trump are packing the courts. There should be a class action lawsuit filed against Trump’s lies that are costing people their lives.
The ad, titled “American Comeback,” was introduced on Sunday night. The campaign says it is spending “mid-seven figures,” at least several million dollars, to run the ad on cable and broadcast channels.
Rick D. McMurtry, associate general counsel for WarnerMedia, wrote in a letter to Tim Murtaugh, the Trump campaign’s communications director, that “the advertisement purposely and deceptively edits the clip to imply that Mr. Blitzer and Dr. Gupta were crediting the President’s travel ban policy issued in January for saving millions of American lives, when in fact Mr. Blitzer and Dr. Gupta were discussing recently implemented social distancing guidelines and stay-at-home orders issued by state and local governments.”
According to McMurtry’s letter, CNN contacted the Trump campaign’s ad agency, Harris Sikes Media, to demand the ad “be edited to remove or correct the misuse.”
Do these people not vet the ads they are showing? Good grief ! Fake News is about to sue your butt old orange stable genius.
