In support of freedom of the press and the Rhinelander-based station WJFW-TV, owned by the small broadcasting company, Rockfleet Communications, we are running the same ad produced by Priorities USA. The station is being sued for defamation of character. However, it’s important to point out that Priorities USA doesn’t say anything in the ad. There’s no commentary, no call to action, no promotion of democratic candidate or any other candidate. The entire ad is Trump’s own words juxtaposed with a rising chart of Covid-19 infections.
“This is pretty simple,” said Priorities USA chairman Guy Cecil in a statement. “Donald Trump doesn’t want voters to hear the truth, and he’s trying to bully TV stations into submission.”
