CNN rejected the Trump campaign’s request for ad time to run their “First 100 Days” ad saying that the ad presented false information.
Michael Glassner, executive director of Trump’s campaign, said CNN is stifling their free speech rights and said they are being “censored” because their ad’s message “doesn’t fit [CNN’s] narrative.”
CNN responded to Glassner using Trump’s favorite weapon .. Twitter.

CNN is among the worst of offenders when it comes to biased reporting but there’s no way they could admit it. Instead, they’ve drawn attention to the fact that being called “fake news” hits a nerve.
The Trump campaign said that the CNN response shows that the cable network cannot handle an opposing view and that they are intentionally blocking any positive news about the president.
