On Thursday, Fox News’ Laura Ingraham spoke with Andrew Klein, father of a student who survived the school shooting massacre in Parkland, Florida. According to Klein, CNN was only interested in interviewing those who would “espouse a certain narrative” in favor of gun control.
According to John Nolte:
Ingraham pointed out, accurately, that CNN’s widely-criticized Wednesday night townhall event was one-sided. The questioners were all anti-gun, all opposed the NRA, and launched venomous personal attacks against Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch.
Jake Tapper, the anti-Trump/anti-gun pundit who moderated the spectacle, also had an audience of thousands who all appeared to be rabidly anti-gun — going so far as to boo a rape victim as Tapper remained silent. Tapper has yet to disavow his audience’s behavior or to apologize to the rape survivor.
Klein informed Ingraham that his experience with the anti-gun cable channel was similar to that of Colton Haab, the shooting survivor and JROTC member being hailed as a hero for leading his fellow students to safety during the massacre.
As we reported, Haab first made his claim to a local station, and later identified the producer who allegedly scripted his question during an interview with Tucker Carlson. CNN responded by calling Haab a liar.
Of the “town hall,” which should have been advertised as a “60-Minute Hate,” to paraphrase George Orwell, Klein said: “Laura, that’s not surprising at all. I actually spoke to a CNN producer on Thursday, the day after the shooting,” he said, adding, “and the producer insinuated to me they were looking for people who were willing to espouse a certain narrative, which was taking the tragedy and turning it into a policy debate; and I read that as being a gun control debate.”
“The producer said we are looking for people who want to talk about the policy implications about what happened in terms of — she didn’t mention guns — the policy implications for preventing mass shootings,” he added.
Nolte further said:
Klein’s and Haab’s allegations are seen by many as credible due to CNN’s previous scandals. On numerous occasions the last-place network has been caught using left-wing plants. The far-left CNN is also facing a credibility crisis due to multiple fake news reports — only some of which have been retracted or corrected.
Incidents like this, by the way, illustrate why many now view CNN as the least-trusted name in network news.
