CNN hosted a town hall attended by parents, survivors, and community members from Parkland, Florida.
It was billed as an attempt to stage a discussion between gun rights supporters and anti-gunners in the wake of the horrible tragedy.
But CNN was caught hiding something about the event and now they are in hot water.
The town hall ended up being a gigantic waste of time.
Anti-gun activists berated National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch and Republican Senator Marco Rubio.
People in the crowd yelled “murderer” while questioners accused Loesch of not caring about her own kids and Rubio of being just like the shooter.
There was no real discussion of actual solutions that would prevent mass shootings.
One reason the deck was stacked was because CNN shut out anyone who dared to question the anti-gun narrative they are promoting.
Colton Haab was a student at Major Stoneman Douglas High School and a member of the JROTC who saved lives by shielding students.
CNN was eager to initially have him ask a question.
But he wanted to speak on the idea on the idea of using veterans as armed guards.
But the network wanted him to read a scripted speech instead, so he passed.
Real Clear Politics reports:
“CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted,” Haab told WPLG-TV.
CNN aired a town hall on the Florida school shooting with Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Bill Nelson (D-FL) that included NRA’s Dana Loesch and Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel that was moderated by Jake Tapper. Students and parents asked questions about gun control and school safety.
“I expected to be able to ask my questions and give my opinion on my questions,” Haab said.
“Colton Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC who shielded classmates in the midst of terror says he did not get to share his experience,” WPLG’s Janine Stanwood explained.
“Colton wrote questions about school safety, suggested using veterans as armed school security guards but claims CNN wanted him to ask a scripted question instead so he decided not to go,” Stanwood reported.
“CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted,” Haab said. “I don’t think that it’s going get anything accomplished. It’s not gonna ask the true questions that all the parents and teachers and students have.”
CNN ripped off their mask and exposed the fact they are no longer a news organization.
The anti-gun kangaroo court they staged came after the network’s twitter feed put out a campaign style gif naming all the members of the Florida House of Representatives who voted against an assault weapons ban as well as their NRA score.

It was a shameful display by CNN, but it was to be expected from a left-wing advocacy organization.
