A lawyer for CNN’s parent company WarnerMedia has written a cease-and-desist letter to President Trump’s re-election campaign over the misleading contents of a new campaign ad.
WarnerMedia says the Trump ad is misusing CNN news coverage in a way that’s “false, misleading and deceptive.”
In response to a request for comment from CNN Business, the campaign claimed that the ad is accurate and attacked the network’s editorial decisions.
The Trump 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.
“Political language—and with variations this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists—is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.” George Orwell
