Fox News refused to grant a request from the Biden campaign not to air an ad by the Trump campaign attacking him for his connections to Ukraine, the Washington Examiner reported.
The 30-second ad is titled “Biden Corruption,” and chronicles Biden’s actions in getting Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin fired in 2016 as Shokin was allegedly investigating Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, where Hunter Biden worked.
Fox News aired the ad after CNN refused it. The ad also attacked CNN’s Jim Acosta, picturing him and other journalists with the voiceover: “Medial lapdogs fall in line.”
“We are not in the business of censoring ads from candidates on either side of the aisle,” a Fox News representative said in a statement. “Vice President Joe Biden has a standing invitation to appear on any of our platforms.”
If Democrats like Biden are really so arrogant that they think they get to determine what ads Fox News airs–or that they get to tell the media what is truth and what is lies, it’s no wonder they can’t fathom how Trump could still have widespread support in spite of their phony impeachment efforts.
