The president of the Media Research Center (MRC) is calling CNN’s plan to hold a “town hall” event on gun control in El Paso on Wednesday night “a partisan political ratings stunt.”
The MRC’s Brent Bozell issued the following statement Tuesday:
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?
