One of the Arizona television stations to which a paid political ad had been submitted by Kari Lake, the Trump-endorsed candidate for governor, apparently didn’t air it.
And that could be a problem, as “Federal law requires broadcasters accept candidates’ political ads regardless of content,” according to Lake.
Her ad was a direct challenge to the broadcasters to which it was submitted, as it essentially accused them of being fake news. And it was scheduled to air during the stations’ own newcasts.
According to Gateway Pundit, it was 12News that was scheduled to run the add at 10:22 p.m. Monday.

Lake said, “My campaign ad was scheduled to air at 1022pm on @12News (the station that employs the Leftist political reporter @brahmresnik who once called AZ GOP Nazis) I heard it didn’t air. Why? (Federal law requires broadcasters accept candidates’ political ads regardless of content).”
