Dems Freak Out On Hulu For Refusing To Run Campaign Ads

Democrats accused streaming giant Hulu of censoring “the facts about MAGA Republican’s agenda” for refusing to run their political ads on the platform. 

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Democratic Governors Association bought ads on Hulu that highlighted Republican lawmaker’s historical actions on gun control and abortion rights. 

In addition to the Disney owned company, they made July 15 advertisement buys on digital content providers YouTube, Roku, and Facebook amongst others. Due to Hulu’s content guidelines, which bars any paid promotions that “takes a position on a controversial issue of public importance,” the ads never aired.

“Hulu’s censorship of the truth is outrageous, offensive, and another step down a dangerous path for our country,” the executive directors of all three committees announced in a joint statement to the Washington Post on Monday. 

“Voters have the right to know the facts about MAGA Republicans’ agenda on issues like abortion – and Hulu is doing a huge disservice to the American people by blocking voters from learning the truth about the GOP record or denying these issues from even being discussed,” they concluded. 

As a digital streaming platform, Hulu has the right to set their own advertising guidelines, and are not held to the Communications Act of 1934, which dictates that broadcast television and radio stations must give equal access to politicians on both sides of the aisle.   

Hulu has remained silent on the issue, but all three committees took to Twitter to complain about the company’s decision. 

“@Hulu is REJECTING our ads calling out GOP attacks on abortion access and gun safety,” the DSCC posted. “Their shady policies amount to outrageous political censorship. Americans deserve to know the truth about these issues, and Hulu has no right to block it.”

“@Hulu doesn’t want you to see this ad about the GOP’s plan to ban abortion nationwide,” the DGA added.

I’ve made so far this year working online and I’m a full time student. I’m using an online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve (naj-94) made such great money. It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it. Here’s what I do.
