Parkland survivor’s father: CNN wanted families ‘willing to espouse a certain narrative’

Parkland survivor’s father: CNN wanted families ‘willing to espouse a certain narrative’

American Mirror

Andrew Klein, father of Stoneman Douglas High School junior Ariana Klein, claims CNN producers were fishing for families to espouse a certain narrative at the networks recent town hall on gun policy.

Klein told Fox News Laura Ingraham it seemed CNN officials exploited the victims of the recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida to press a decidedly anti-gun agenda, substantiating allegations by others the network staked its recent town hall with gun-control advocates and ignored other opinions.

It seemed like most of the students had the same opinion on what to do, namely to ban certain weapons, to trash the NRA, to be really disrespectful to (U.S. Sen.) Marco Rubio, and nasty things being said to Dana Loesch, who was there. But they all seemed to be pretty much in agreement, as far as I could tell, Ingraham said. There was no diversity of opinion among either the students or anyone else I saw, even in the audience.

Laura, thats not surprising at all, Klein said. I actually spoke to a CNN producer on Thursday, the day after the shooting, and the producer insinuated to me that they were looking for people who were willing to espouse a certain narrative, which was taking a tragedy and turning it into a policy debate. And I read that as being a gun control debate.

The Kleins didnt participate, perhaps because Andrew Klein believes many folks discussing gun control are misguided.

Unfortunately, I think a lot of people who are talking about gun control dont understand what theyre talking about, he said. Im a Republican. Im a gun owner. Im a responsible gun owner. And when we talk about gun control, its not about taking guns away from people like me. Its about keeping them out of the hands of people who should not have them, who are irresponsible, who are a threat to society.

Last night, when (U.S. Rep.) Ted Deutch kept repeating his mantra that he wants to eliminate any gun that can fire 150 rounds in six minutes thats almost every gun thats out there.

The controversy centers on a school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 people dead last week. Liberal leaders like Rep. Nancy Pelosi and liberal news outlets like CNN instantly leveraged the tragedy to call for increased regulations on gun owners.

Klein isnt the first to accuse CNN producers of pushing a gun-control agenda at Wednesday nights town hall, which many have criticized as a biased sham to promote gun control. Shooting survivor Colton Haab, a JROTC member who helped usher his classmates to safety during the attack, told Fox News that CNN producers invited him to participate in the event with a speech and question, but later nixed his comments because they did not align with the programs narrative.

CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions, and it ended up being all scripted, Haab told WPLG.

Haab told Fox News Tucker Carlson that CNN producer Carrie Stevenson contacted him and asked him to contribute a speech, but later changed the request to a speech and questions, then just questions. After exchanging several emails, Haab contends Stevenson cut his participation to one scripted question.

So what they had actually done was wrote out a question for me because in my interview with CNN, I had talked about arming the teachers, if they were willing to arm themselves in the school to carry on campus, he said. And they had she had taken that of what I had briefed on and actually wrote that question out for me.

Haab said he initially agreed to participate because he wanted to speak my part and open eyes to a few things, but eventually pulled out when Stevenson insisted he stick to the script.

She had actually said that over the phone that I needed to stick to the script, Haab said.

CNN claims the 17-year-old is a liar.

There is absolutely no truth to this, according to the official statement. CNN did not provide or script questions for anyone in last nights town hall, nor have we ever.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. Or if you need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install and other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
