That’s Not How It Works

Yet another patriot doesn’t understand the basic foundation of our laws.  CNN decided not to air an ad from the Trump campaign (yes, he still is campaigning) touting his “accomplishments” over the first 100 days because it was full of shit.

That got RNC Chair Ronna McDaniels’ tail all puffed up.

The network’s clearly biased decision to block President Trump’s message to the American people is incredibly troubling,” said Chairwoman McDaniel. “Freedom of speech is a hallmark of our nation’s founding, and it is concerning that CNN, who I assume to be a strong supporter of the first amendment, would stifle speech that they disagree with. CNN should allow the ad to be aired and apologize for their attempt to block the President’s message.”

The First Amendment prohibits Congress from regulating freedom of the press.  Last time I checked, CNN was not the Congress.  They are a private corporation, and they can run — or not run — whatever they want.  They’re a cable channel, so even the FCC can’t regulate what they put out.

Chances are Ms. McDaniels knows this, but she’s counting on the ignorance of her constituents to lap it up.  Now that’s troubling.
