For the most part I'm pretty sure most of the sites that say this are not actually seen on CNN.
Well it depends. Maybe someday they start cracking on these sites which do that? And as a user I cross check such things and find out that it wasn't the actual product but the logic behind it which was mentioned. You can do it though, but be prepared to do it.
If it is seen on CNN, then record (digital / video record / or still photograph with timestamp) the advert (full with CNN page) and show the proof if and when asked. You might find a copy of the 'Ad on CNN' video on YT... but it may also not be authentic! Else don't depend on 3rd party ads and copy their statement blindly...
It's probably not illegal, but if CNN found them they could give them a cease and desist and put some fine on them
It's misleading and pretentious. If someone made a purchase from a website that makes this claim, they could argue that the website lied and it influenced their decision to buy. If CNN ever find it they can issue a Cease and Desist or proceed with further litigation depending on how they feel.
No problem with that. Go ahead and do it.
It is illegal for sure
If your definition of illegal is breaking the law then of course it is. Lying to potential customers is false advertising which is illegal. I doubt you'll get in trouble for it though, I see so many people doing it
