Despite stating that news networks don't or shouldn't take political sides, CNN is refusing to air a Trump campaign ad that accuses former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, of corruption in Ukraine. As a reminder, Hunter Biden was paid $50,000 per month to sit on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, despite having no experience in the field. He was paid while his father served during President Barack Obama's tenure in the White House. The Daily Beast was first to report:

“CNN is rejecting the ad, as it does not meet our advertising standards,” a network spokesperson told The Daily Beast. “Specifically, in addition to disparaging CNN and its journalists, the ad makes assertions that have been proven demonstrably false by various news outlets, including CNN.”

“CNN spends all day protecting Joe Biden in their programming, so it’s not surprising that they’re shielding him from truthful advertising too, and then talking to other media outlets about it,” Trump 2020 communications director Tim Murtaugh responded in a statement. “Our ad is entirely accurate and was reviewed by counsel, and CNN wouldn’t even describe to us what they found objectionable. This isn’t a cable news channel anymore, it’s a Democrat public relations firm.”  

Here's the ad in question:

Meanwhile, the Trump campaign just released another bruising ad as Democrats continue to flippantly push impeachment on Capitol Hill.
