CNN was accused of one awful thing after the Florida shooting
CNN jumped at the chance to exploit the tragic shooting in Parkland, Florida for political gain.
They have turned over their network to promoting an anti-gun agenda.
But they just found out they have one big problem.
CNN is coming under fire for exploiting the grief of the survivors of the horrific massacre.
They are using the pain and suffering of teenagers as a weapon in their crusade to ultimately confiscate every firearm in America.
All Americans grieve for the children who lose their friends to an act of madness, but they do not appreciate the adults at CNN utilizing them to score political points.
Writing at Breibart, John Nolte detailed the growing backlash to CNN’s exploiting children for political gain:
“Many, however, see CNN’s use of these minors as an act of partisan exploitation that is not only immoral, but also not good for the mental health of children so soon after they have witnessed such a traumatic event.
Appearing on Fox News, the Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway said, “There’s been unfortunate media handling of these traumatized children. They’ve used them as ways to enact what they always like to do, a gun control agenda,” she said before referencing CNN’s upcoming town hall. “These children aren’t forcing their ways on to CNN, town halls, or covers of magazines. Media is choosing them to put there, to shut down debate and keep people from having a conversation about gun control.”
Truth Revolt also singled out CNN. “[The children’s] outrage is more than understandable after witnessing a mass shooting and fearing for their lives, but it’s shameful that CNN, and many other leftist outlets, would exploit them over and over again online and on-air to push the media’s gun control agenda. ”
The Federalist asks, What if putting “traumatized teenagers” on TV is “not healthy?”
“But what if putting traumatized teenagers, mere days removed from a shocking and life-changing event, in front of cameras and crowds is not healthy? Have we thought that through,” the Federalist asks, before closing with this, “Leave the kids alone. It’s our job to lead, not theirs.”
Anyone who has watched five minutes of CNN programming can the network hates guns and hates gun owners.
But they crossed the line in weaponizing the grief of children to push their anti-gun agenda.
