Apparently CNN has taken Rahm Emmanuel’s cynical motto to heart.
They are not letting the murder of seventeen people go to waste.
After spending the last five days flogging the mass-murder in Parkland, Florida, CNN shows no sign of letting up.
Hey, who can blame them? After all, there’s still some ratings to be squeezed out of every last drop of blood shed.
In two days CNN will hold a completely non-partisan, totally unbiased Town Hall with students and parents from Parkland.
You can tell it’ll be non-partisan and unbiased just by the title they’ve given it: “Stand Up: The Students of Stoneman Douglass Demand Action.”
I wonder if CNN already has the T-shirts with this title printed up and ready to pass out.
You know, just like the T-shirts they made for that corrupt San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz.
Now, to be fair, exploiting children isn’t entirely about ratings for CNN.
After all, if CNN was concerned about ratings, they would have completely revamped their format two years ago.
No. For CNN ratings are secondary.
Advancing the Left’s Agenda is their primary goal.
And just like Obama exploiting the grief of the Newtown families in 2013, CNN is exploiting these students and their parents to advance an anti-gun agenda.
In other words, they are victimizing them all over again.
It’s pornographic, really, but hardly surprising.
And when CNN got called out for exploiting these kids to beat the drum for gun control, Jake Tapper decided exploiting children isn’t enough.
He also used them as human shields:
In the last week on social media Americans have attacked and insulted and rooted against US Olympians because they don't like their politics and attacked and insulted teen survivors of a US school shooting for discussing policies with which they disagree.

No, Jake. We’re not attacking the survivors; don’t be a douche. We’re attacking you for shamelessly exploiting their trauma for your own political ends.
Ok. I’ve been called an accomplice to murder with blood on my hands by Democrats, journalists, and lib advocates simply bc I’m an NRA member https://t.co/ABLZzGl9yd

It's weird how the media has found more students to attack the President and guns than the murderer. It's almost like they're doing it on purpose for some reason… https://t.co/9o7H9N8rOe

I've heard multiple students say that it is not about the guns but they don't seem to end up on CNN or in The Washington Post. Why is that? https://t.co/ivlQjdFN0f

There’s something deeply cynical and craven about descending like vultures when children are most vulnerable.
But that’s the state of CNN today.
And the fact that their quest to advance this anti-gun agenda is so all-encompassing that they are willing to exploit these children shows just how vile and despicable CNN has become.
But they have no shame — no sense of decency.
And in the long run, they don’t care if their exploitation leaves these kids even more traumatized than they were after a madman tried to kill them.
