    CNN has refused to air an ad supporting President Donald Trump’s re-election, claiming the ad’s statement that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden will raise taxes on the middle class is false.

    The ad was also rejected for its characterization of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as pro-socialist, according to The Hill.

    The America First Action ad said Biden “sided with socialists,” and shows images of Pelosi and Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.


    The ad also said Biden will “raise taxes on the middle class” and that “his liberal agenda will cost millions of jobs.”

    The ad was rejected, an account executive at Warner Media said to The Hill in an email, because it was not fair to Biden and Pelosi.


    “WarnerMedia Commercial Clearance has not accepted America First Action’s advertisement ‘We Are America’ for its networks as the ad does not meet its commercial clearance standards,” the email said.

    “Specifically, the ad 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,” the executive said.


    An attorney representing America First Action said the action was censoring political speech that was “at the very least a matter worthy of debate.”

    “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,” Stephen Kenny of Jones Day wrote.

    Biden has said he will repeal the tax cuts enacted by Trump in 2017, but claims that no one with an income under $400,000 a year will feel any pain.

    Kenny wrote that some analysts believe there will be an impact on middle-class taxpayers who will earn less on their investments and could face lower wages because of Biden’s proposed corporate tax increases.

    “These are important policy debates that should be aired in the public square in advance of the election,” Kenny wrote.


    Kenny said the label “socialist” is “often used in political discourse to signify generally a set of left-leaning political positions.”

    “Pelosi favors tuition-free community college, universal subsidized child care, and universal health care,” he wrote. “The ad does not imply she advocates for a more aggressive strain of ‘socialism’ whereby the government controls all means of production. Instead, the ad describes accurately where her positions on key issues place her on the political spectrum.”


    America First and its supporters expressed outrage at CNN’s action.

    America First Action said the ad was deemed appropriate to run by ABC, AMC, Cooking, CBS, Comcast, DIY, Discovery, ESPN, Food Network, Fox, HGTV, History, Lifetime and The Weather Channel.

    However, it will not be running on CNN or its Turner Broadcast cousins, including TNT, TBS and TCM.

    And apparently not a single democrap senator defended free speech or freedom of the press during the big tech hearings. They are using mass media and social media as their own censorship tools.
    The time for bloodshed is near.

    I take it the majority of people on this page watch Fox "News"?
    A channel that isn't news at all, considering that their programming is "for your personal enjoyment and entertainment".
    That according to their own Terms of Use Agreement.
    News is factual, not entertainment.

    Mack - and your point is? All of your leftie "news" shows are anti-American and Communists in nature, and they are not entertaining or factual.

    Almost all of your lefty news companies are also owned by entertainment companies, for instance; nbc is owned by disney, cnn is owned by time warner, etc.

    Instead of being new and coming on a website of Marines and then going against the Marines that inhabit it why not think about joining your brothers. Just about every Marine that is on this website is very sharp, and each has studied and knows the differences between Freedom and socialists and communists.

    As John Wayne once said; "The average person is stupid, and half of them are stupider than that." I have my suspicions which group you're in.

    Absolutely we watch Fox News. Why would anyone but a stupid azz lunatic watch Lying Liberal Propaganda?? We have been around for many years and remember the Great America we once lived in. We know the difference in Real Americans and those who would destroy the Constitution. We know who the Sheep are and who they follow. Mack, believe me, this site isn't for your liberal entertainment.

    Mack could be the type of person to hit a hornet's nest with a bat just to see what would happen.

    No, I don't hit hornets nests.
    But, like a Marine, I have my own opinions, and speak my mind.
    Tell me, what incumbent has ever said "The only way we can lose is if the election is rigged!", months before the election?
    Now, Harris County in Texas, had 177,000 ballots questioned, two days before Election Day? Because it's known for voting Democrat?
    Republicans had plenty of time to contest the Drive Through Voting long before this, and stayed silent when it was originally approved. Now they don't want those votes counted? Now?

    Pennsylvania's Absentee Ballots can come in for several days more, and it will take time to count them, as it has in past years. Nothing new there, except for the fact that there's a Pandemic going on, so there are more of them.
    But Trump said, to the Pennsylvania Governor, that taking so long to count can be "Physically Dangerous"?
    Really? Does that NOT sound like a threat to any of you? It does to me.
    I swore an oath, to the Constitution and the Nation, just like the rest of you.
    It is just my opinion, but I see Donald Trump as a threat, to the Constitution, Nation and Democracy.
    Don't forget his favorite World Leaders. Putin, Kim. Neither of their countries are Democracies, but Trump said that they want him to win.
    Ask yourselves why that is.
    They are not our friends. Historically they have been our enemies, and still are. Especially to Democracy.

    Trump talks about Voter Fraud. It's rampant, he insists, without evidence.
    Early in his term he put together a Republican Commission to investigate that, but they had to close down because they couldn't find any.
    Facts are facts, indisputable.
    Just like truth never changes.
    Trump is a habitual liar, verging on compulsive.
    He wants his Political Opponents locked up? He believes that he is entitled to a third term? He's willing to rig an election to stay in power, through Voter Suppression?
    Those are not the actions of a US President, they're the actions of a Dictator.
    Oh, don't forget about his idea for "Patriotic Education".
    Someone else instituted that, back around 1933.
    And when a German citizen says "We never imagined that we would see something like this again. Something like Adolph Hitler.", perhaps we should take note.
    It took the German People 60 years to be able to say that they were proud to be German again. How long will it take us to say we're proud to be American again?

    Never, in the history of the United States of America has there been a President who has worked so hard to keep us divided.
    Ever wonder why?
    Perhaps as a distraction, so we don't focus on what he does too closely.
    Like how much $$$ the Trump Organization has made with Taxpayers money.
    If he gets a second term, Democracy will never survive.

    Btw, I'm not exactly new here, I've just been away for a few years.
    Thanks for reminding me why.

    Pardon me, 127,00 votes are what the Republicans are trying to get thrown out.
    A Texas Judge struck it down, so they appealed to a Federal Judge, who ALSO struck it down.
    So they're appealing that now.

    So you know, I enlisted at 19, in 1978. So I 'm not some kid with no knowledge of the world.

    This is what Donald J Trump has made America into.
    Seems we can't even have a conversation anymore.

    And Fox News Company is owned by an Aussie.
    Nothing wrong with that, but I and my wife have several Online Friends, across that island continent, and they feel sorry for the American People.
    To them, Trump is the laughingstock.

    That's what it has come to.
