CNN is at the center of controversy again after Kyle Kashuv, a Parkland school shooting survivor and supporter of 2nd amendment rights, is calling out the news channel for cancelling his scheduled interview on Brooke Baldwin’s show.
He says that the channel took offense at him retweeting a story that called Baldwin a “fake news hypocrite.”
This also comes at a time when CNN has been receiving a lot of criticism and being referred to as “fake news.” A while ago, Colton Haab, another Parkland school shooting survivor, rejected an invitation from CNN to attend a town hall being held to discuss gun control measures because he said that CNN was feeding him scripted questions. Commenting on the matter, Haab mentioned that he “expected to be able to ask my questions and give my opinion on my questions.” However, he was not going to be allowed to ask about hiring veterans as guards in schools. Instead, he said the town hall would solve nothing because it wasn’t “going to ask any of the true questions that all the parents and teachers and students have.”
Since the culmination of the 2016 election, the mainstream media has been under fire from voters, and this just further divides news stations from society’s trust.
