CNN refused to show the above cartoon from Charlie Hebdo.
Of course, CNN is no stranger to controversy. They even have a Wikipedia page dedicated to it – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CNN_controversies.
They had an incident as well in which they refused to air paid ads due to their policy “of not airing ads centered on controversial public policy subjects”. Freedom Watch set the record straight – http://hotair.com/archives/2007/08/28/cable-ratings-bottomfeeders-refuse-pro-war-ads/.
For example, the Networks aired an advertisement entitled “Shameless Politicians” sponsored by Move America Forward regarding the war on terror in October 2004. In November 2006, the Networks aired advertisements sponsored by the American Medical Association entitled “Patient Voice” concerning the controversial issue of access to health care and coverage for the uninsured. During July 2007, the Networks aired advertisements sponsored by the Save Darfur Coalition. Your history of airing other issue advocacy advertisements makes the denial of FW advertisements troubling and raises the issue of whether your denial is based on an editorial disagreement with FW’s message.
These ads are about important issues that will shape our national security policies for years to come. These ads present a point of view that your viewers are not now receiving.
Makes one wonder what the agenda will become once our black Muslim President leaves office and a different leftist gets elected.
