Broadcasters unite to block Trump's 'fake news' advert

NBCUniversal, for example said that: "Consistent with our policies, we have agreed to accept the ad if the inaccurate graphic - which refers to journalists as "fake news" - is corrected". We have freedom of speech.

NBC, ABC and CBS have joined CNN in rejecting an ad praising the achievements of Donald Trump's first 100 days in office, who had accused them of unfair coverage.

CNN was first to refuse to run the ad.

The narrator then says "You wouldn't know it from watching the news", and the faces of Andrea Mitchell of NBC, CNN's Wolf Blitzer, Rachel Maddow of MSNBC, Scott Pelley of CBS and George Stephanopoulos of ABC appear on the screen with the caption "FAKE NEWS" running across their faces.

The fight over the campaign ad, however, allows Trump to try to turn the tables on the media by accusing them of censorship.

"CNN requested that the advertiser remove the false graphic that says mainstream media is 'fake news, '" CNN's public relations department tweeted.

Trump has come under criticism for his frequent feuds with the news media.
