Bozell: ‘Boycott CNN’s Disgraceful Town Hall in El Paso’

“Families are still burying their loved ones” and, yet, CNN is already exploiting last weekend’s two mass shootings with “a partisan political ratings stunt,” Media Research Center President Brent Bozell said Tuesday in a statement calling for public officials to boycott the cable network’s upcoming town hall on guns:

“I’m calling on all public officials to boycott CNN's disgraceful town hall in El Paso tomorrow night. It’s nothing more than a partisan political ratings stunt, and it dishonors the victims and their families. We saw how CNN’s town hall following the shooting in Parkland, Florida, last year turned into a left-wing anti-gun political rally. There are no indications this event won’t be more of the same.

“CNN’s shameless move to politicize this tragedy for ratings is disgraceful. Families are still burying their loved ones. If there is a ‘gun crisis,’ why aren’t they conducting town halls in Chicago or Baltimore?”
