The streaming service Hulu has been getting attacked over social media over its refusal to run certain ads the company deemed too political.


As reported in Common Dreams: 

As The Washington Post reported, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), and the Democratic Governors Association (DGA) made attempted ad buys with the streaming service on July 15 for ads regarding gun control policy and abortion rights.

One ad said the overturning of Roe v. Wade is part of a “coordinated Republican attack on abortion” and warned that Republicans “will not stop at overturning Roe” and will continue working to impose a nationwide ban on abortion care—which GOP lawmakers and pro-forced birth activists have stated.

The ad focusing on gun control included statistics on gun violence and said, “Republicans are more devoted to the gun lobby than taking common-sense action to make our kids safe.”

The DSCC accused Hulu of imposing “shady” ad policies, which vaguely bar ads including “controversial” content.

These ads were not allowed to air because they were too controversial, Hulu does have several political ads, but this is not a left vs. right issue like we see on other platforms.

Activists shouldn’t concern themselves with this issue. A lot of the shows on Hulu are already force-feeding liberal talking points down the throats of viewers.
