CNN has a new ad, this one involving a banana peel that according to the ad, people are allegedly calling an apple — or something.
Text of the ad via Brian Stelter:
New CNN ad showing a banana peel: "Some people might try to tell you that this is an apple. It might even start as a joke. But when they say it over and over and over again, and people start to believe it, it's only a matter of time before someone gets hurt." https://t.co/7vljDblyQC

The level of self-sanctimonious behavior here by CNN is quite something https://t.co/AD66PjTDLm

As is this:
"All the facts we want to present. But ignore these other facts that blow a hole in our narrative." https://t.co/lAuQ31RJtE

And the ad actually opens up the entire “alternative facts” discussion, but CNN won’t admit that:

Maybe the next ad will feature this Don Lemon oldies, but a goodie?
