The ad by America First Action (AFA), says Biden “sided with socialists,” while showing pictures of Pelosi and AOC.
The narrator then warns that Biden will “raise taxes on the middle class" and that "his liberal agenda will cost millions of jobs.”
"America First Action says the ad has been approved to run on ABC, AMC, Cooking, CBS, Comcast, DIY, Discovery, ESPN, Food Network, Fox, HGTV, History, Lifetime and The Weather Channel."
An account executive with CNN’s parent company Warner Media says they rejected the ad because it “asserts that Biden will raise taxes on the middle class. That claim is not adequately substantiated and has been judged false by independent fact-checkers. The advertisement also mischaracterizes Nancy Pelosi as a socialist.”
“While AFA’s opponents are, of course, permitted to purchase air time to try to rebut AFA’s claims, it is not the job of your network to censor a statement that is factually supported and relates to an important issue in the upcoming election. Indeed, every other cable network is currently airing AFA’s ad. If you continue to decline to air the ad, please let us know why the factual support outlined above is insufficient.”
