After Broward’s ‘cowards’ revelation, Michelle Malkin blasts CNN for its sham ‘so-called’ town hall

After one of the most infamously stage-managed “town halls” in recent memory, CNN is getting serious flak for the revelation as many as four Broward County sheriff’s deputies stood by as perpetrator Nikolas Cruz killed 17 people during a shooting rampage at the high school in Parkland, Florida.

Michelle Malkin appeared on Laura Ingraham’s show on Fox News with Allen West to discuss CNN’s abysmal display of partisan talking points at its “town hall,” which politicized a tragedy and turned it into a show trial of law-abiding gun owners nationwide.

“It’s unbelievable what we learned tonight about the Coral Springs officers, they arrived,” Ingraham said. “They were behind their vehicles and told the Coral Springs police, ‘You go in.’ And so they did go in.”

“It seems like there was mistakes made on the ground,” Ingraham continued. “The guy was obviously — it was tipped that he was going to shoot up a school, at least a few tips that he was going to shoot up the school. Nothing. And it’s the NRA’s fault?” she asked.

“I’ve got to go to the CNN forum,” Ingraham said. “He was called by CNN shortly after the shooting. This is how he described it. Let’s listen.” [Plays audio.]

“I actually spoke to a CNN producer on Thursday, the day after the shooting,” she continued. “And the producer insinuating to me they were looking for people who were willing to espouse a certain narrative, which was taking the tragedy and turning it into a policy debate.”

“And by the way, Jake Tapper tweeted in response to CNN, the student said her question was for Dana,” Ingraham explained. “That’s why I was talking about that kid — nothing was scripted, but people submit questions. We go in expecting they’ll ask the questions they submitting, which they’re holding.”

“I have,” Malkin responded. “And I’ve been a long-time chronicler. And these are not journalistic exercises. These are partisan political ones.”

“In the past they’ve tried to pass off as undecided voters, people who are working for various Democratic political campaigns,” Malkin continued. “It is no surprise. And I think it’s interesting because on the one hand, the left is always saying, ‘believe the children. Listen to the children.’ But when certain children and their parents are telling the truth about the manipulation of this fake news, all of a sudden”… she trailed off, tellingly.

“And now we are finding out more and more what did this Sheriff Israel know when he was sitting on the stage mauling Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch like lions in the den,” she said. “It is the collusion, I believe, between the social justice administrators of that school district who adopted conflict resolution policies all for the cause of political correctness and eradicating the fact that there were percentages of students. They adjudicated no one and that’s how Nikolas Cruz got away with it.”

Damning words from Michelle Malkin about the Parkland shooting.

Maybe instead of pointing the finger at law-abiding gun owners for the atrocity, Broward County police officers like Sheriff Israel need to be taking a long look in the mirror.
