Washington Free Beacon writer really HATES this CNN memo
“I hate hate hate hate hate hate this statement. CNN ought to just be honest; you want us to run an ad that’s damaging to our brand and insults our anchor. Why would we do that? But is CNN going to tell us with a straight face that they’ve fact-checked every political ad they’ve run in their decades-long existence? Free advice for Dem/GOP operatives: save this statement. In 2018, demand an explanation for why CNN is running misleading ads. It’ll happen. Of course, CNN only requested one change. So everything else in Trump’s ad must be true! Trump DID give us the biggest tax cut ever!”
— Washington Free Beacon‘s Alexander Griswold.
