[Ed. – In an age where Al Gore and, worse yet, Barack Obama win Nobel Prizes, this hardly comes as a shock.]
I wish I could say ‘are you kidding me, fellas’ but this is the Democrat-media complex we’re talking about here. Any event that makes conservatives look bad will be rewarded and for CNN, they have compiled quite the list. They’re going to win a Walter Cronkite Award for their abysmal town hall event after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida. The USC Annenberg Norman Lear Center, a public policy center that focuses on communications and journalism, decided to honor one of the Left’s favorite networks because the event helped “advance the national conversation on gun control and violence.”
CNN Parkland Town Hall, a two-hour special, aired only seven days after 17 students and teachers were murdered by a gunman at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. In this “compelling and powerful” forum, moderator Jake Tapper deftly gave generous space to speak to gun control advocates, politicians, Parkland students, parents and a representative from the NRA. The program helped “advance the national conversation on gun control and violence,” the jury said.
This is a total joke. Nothing was advanced. Well, one thing was advanced: the narrative that the Left hates Republicans, gun owners, rural voters, and NRA members.
