Biden campaign warns Fox News not to run Trump’s ‘false’ ad, puts network on notice
October 4, 2019 | Frieda Powers

Fox News has rejected an attempt by Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to control their airwaves.

The network repudiated the former vice president’s demand to reject a new Trump 2020 campaign ad because of the “absolute falsity” of claims suggesting the Ukraine government was strong-armed into pushing out a prosecutor investigating corruption in a company that employed Hunter Biden.

Biden’s presidential campaign put Fox News “on notice” about airing the ad which they claimed “spreads false, definitively debunked conspiracy theories,” Politico reported.

The ad “falsely states” that “Biden offered Ukraine $1 billion to fire the prosecutor investigating a company affiliated with his son,” Biden campaign manager Greg Schultz wrote in a letter to Fox News and Fox Business general counsel Lily Claffee.

“Though the Trump campaign is prepared to fabricate outright lies, your station’s airwaves should not be used to disseminate them,” Schultz wrote.

Again, I stand by my view that polticians shouldn't be bashing or dictating news networks on what it shouldn't be allowed to be aired or not.

Not to go down a rathole, but news organizations have no business 'fact checking' either. It's not their job to evaluate veracity of information and then proclaiming the truth, just simply provide and let the consumer evaluate it.

Anything more than providing the news equates to editorializing.

Same here.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Here lies in honored glory an American soldier, known but to God

THE ESTABLISHMENT IS THE PROBLEM...NOT THE SOLUTION

Fox rejects.  CNN on the other hand acquiesced to the demand.
“Here’s the truth. Life begins at conception. Government is too big. Our taxes are too high. And our car insurance is too expensive. President Trump is doing a great job. Facts matter more than feelings. The Second Amendment is self-explanatory. And as a doctor, I can assure you there are only two genders.”

Finally FOX stands up
In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
