WTF MSM!? Did CNN script anti-gun town hall?

Scripted? …

Student speaks out … Colton Haab, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, claimed on local news that he chose not to participate in the CNN town hall on guns last night. Haab said that he made the decision after he was handed a “scripted question.” CNN has forcefully denied the suggestion. Haab is a member of the JROTC at the high school and wanted to ask a question about whether more security is necessary at schools. You can watch Haab speak here and make up your own mind.

They’ve done it before … CNN’s assertion rings hollow to me. You’ll remember Donna Brazile gave CNN town hall questions to Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign. CRTV’s Michelle Malkin reminded viewers of CNN’s history in a video released before the town hall. Malkin said, “CNN has a long history of rigging its town halls with phony plants and Democrat operatives to push left-wing agendas.” Malkin documented this history in a 2016 column.

The fact remains that the event last night was not news. It was political theater. From the name of the event — “The Students of Stoneman Douglas Demand Action” — to the questions, to the raucous crowd: It was political. Just because the students have every right to speak does not mean that it wasn’t an orchestrated political event. CNN will have (more) egg on its face if Haab is able to produce proof of the scripted question.

Dana Loesch is on fire … If you watched the town hall last night, you undoubtedly saw the reaction that NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch received. It was vile and misogynistic, and it included threats of violence. This morning, Loesch spoke at CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference, about the reception and said she needed security protection to leave the premises. Conservative Review’s Chris Pandolfo shows you what you need to know about Loesch’s fiery speech.

Loesch torched the media for focusing their town halls on “crying white mothers” and followed up by saying “there are thousands of grieving black mothers in Chicago every weekend, and you don’t see town halls for them, do you?” You can read Pandolfo’s take and watch the full speech here.

Speaking of Loesch, here’s video of her husband, Chris, talking about the CNN event and whether it was scripted or not. Mr. Loesch notes how one student even asked Dana a question when she wasn’t on stage.
