Setting aside all pretense of impartiality in pursuit of a gun control agenda, CNN is exploiting grieving high school students traumatized over last week’s shooting that claimed the lives of 17 people, to include many of their classmates.
The media is giving rise to the voices of students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who are willing to criticize President Donald Trump for his response or call for gun control – because adults now emulate children in post-Obama America.
But CNN may have gone too far in what’s become open season on the National Rifle Association when they allowed one student from the school to label the NRA “child murderers” live on air.
The remark smears millions of responsible gun owners in America.
Identified as “survivors,” students Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg said the NRA should disband and are demanding politicians stop accepting money from the pro-2nd Amendment group and take action on gun control.
“If you can’t get elected without taking money from child murderers, why are you running?” asked Hogg, as CNN host Alisyn Camerota sat there stone faced.
The students had no comments about Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider.
The Washington Post was eager to report last week the NRA has contributed $4.2 million to current members of Congress, primarily Republicans, since 1998 and the newspaper was only too happy to expose who those members were.
But when it comes to “child murderers,” Planned Parenthood, which receives half a billion dollars in taxpayer funding every year, spent $38 million on the 2016 election alone, according to The Federalist’s Sean Davis.
