Dems Whine Hulu Won't Air Their Ads

July 26th, 2022 2:35 PM

Democrats may not be able to govern their way out of a paper bag, but they're champion complainers. 

The Disney backed streaming service Hulu is under fire after refusing to stream advertisements for certain democratic campaigns that smeared Republican rhetoric, according to The Washington Post.

Hulu is a video streaming platform that plays movies, tv episodes and even Hulu original series. The platform also includes advertisements and commercials for a short time between segmented clips. Typically those ads are about lotion, new cars or new menu items at a fast food chain but occasionally, campaign ads are run. 

Hulu has a policy that prohibits ads on its platform that are “deemed controversial.” Supposedly the “Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Democratic Governors Association tried to purchase joint ads on abortion and guns on Hulu on July 15” and Hulu never ran the ads. 

Hulu’s advertisement committee probably just didn’t want viewers grumpy at them if they were to show ads that leaned heavily on one side or the other for topics as hot button as abortion and guns. 

In natural lefty fashion, Democrats threw a tantrum. 

The executive directors of the three committees, Christie Roberts, Tim Persico and Noam Lee, expressed their anger in the Washington Post. 

Hulu’s censorship of the truth is outrageous, offensive, and another step down a dangerous path for our country. 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.

One she/her/hers blue check declared that Hulu was banning ads that talked about “reproductive rights.” Again I say, nobody has a “right” to abort an innocent child. Get that out of your head.

Senate Dems used their Twitter to call Hulu’s policies “shady” and deemed them “censorship.” 

Matt McDermott a “Democratic pollster,” and Hillary, Harris, Biden AND Obama fan called Hulu's decision an “absolute scandal” by censoring “Republican attacks.” 

Good lord. These people need hobbies.

In the end, Hulu did run the ads of one Democratic candidate, Suraj Patel, that showed images from Jan. 6. Supposedly someone familiar with Hulu’s advertising policies said that Hulu “does not publicly disclose its advertising guidelines but that they prohibit advertising that takes a position on a controversial issue, regardless of whether it is a political ad. The ads are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, with edits sometimes recommended to the advertiser.” 

Perhaps Hulu should just stick to the burger and shampoo ads as it appears that chaos is going to erupt no matter what they choose to air!
