Trump ad about Biden and Ukraine banned by CNN

The Trump campaign released an ad about Joseph Biden and Ukraine that CNN refused to air, calling it "demonstrably false." According to this Washington Post article, the decision came "as the Trump administration escalates its attacks on congressional Democrats’ impeachment efforts and continues to lash out at media organizations it tries to discredit as “fake news.” CNN’s move brought renewed ire from Trump’s reelection campaign, as Communications Director Tim Murtaugh called the news network a 'Democrat public relations firm' that 'spends all day protecting Joe Biden.'” Other companies refused to ban the ad, a development that "doesn’t bode well for what’s to come in 2020 and social media platforms’ willingness to act on the spread of misinformation" according to this article in Vox.
