CNN Rejects Life-Affirming Obama Ad – 2nd Major Network to Do So

For the past number of weeks an extraordinarily popular, life-affirming ad by has been making the rounds on the internet, having been viewed 1.6 million times on Youtube alone. However, the makers of the ad are now reporting that CNN has refused to air the ad on its station, making it the second major network to reject the ad and its positive message. The ad shows an ultrasound of a baby in a womb, while superimposed text explains that during his life the baby’s father will abandon him, and his single mother will struggle to support him. But, “despite the hardships he will endure,” the ad continues. “This child will become the 1st African American President.” The ad concludes with a picture of President Obama and the slogan, “Life. Imagine the Potential.”
