CNN is a serious news gathering organization of professional journalists, not some propaganda tool of the Obama administration. At least that’s what the moderator of CNN’s town hall on guns, Anderson Cooper, insists you believe. That’s why he made it clear at the beginning of Thursday night’s town hall meeting that the televised special was CNN’s idea, sparked not by the president’s executive actions on guns but by the killing of 14 people in San Bernardino, Calif., by a husband-and-wife team of Islamic terrorists. So …
Why was CNN's response to San Bernardino a town hall on guns rather than Islamic terrorism?

If this town hall wasn't orchestrated by the White House how does president Obama know who all these people are?

@jamestaranto Because they're Presstitute Organs of the Democrat Party.

@jamestaranto It would've been culturally insensitive on the 1st anniversary of the Charlie Hebdo massacre. Duh.
