    A high school student was going to attend a town hall and voice his opinions, however, those opinions were not OK'd by CNN who was only interested in gun control questions.

    Focussing on the wrong stuff here, Whodey.

    People are dying left and right because everyone and their mother and their nephew and their mentally unstable father and their infant son and their tortoise has a gun. That's what you should be focussing on.

    Unless you're not particularly fazed by all of that, of course.

    Edit: "Armed U.S. veterans"............... people want "armed U.S. veterans" patrolling the schools....

    Doing pretty well, 'Murica! Nothing out of the ordinary!

    And why are they dying? I thought schools were gun free zones? I thought that was the answer, just ban guns.

    I reckon debate is not what left wingers want. They already have all the answers.

    Yes, quite a few of us have the answer as to what should be the first thing that needs to happen to try and stop this madness. It's not rocket science.

    But naturally, you could instead focus on the violent movies and have "armed U.S. veterans" patrol the schools 🙄

    Nothing about this has anything to do with free speech of lack thereof, but, hey... anything to draw attention away from the important issue, right?

    So holding a town hall and CNN censoring the questions and allowing some and disallowing others is not censorship of free speech?

    In a world of free speech CNN can say and not say, broadcast and not broadcast whatever they want. It's a direct consequence of "free speech". Free speech - as much as you may dislike it - also applies to those you view as your political enemies.

    I agree, but the thing that warps this one is 'town hall' if it were 'CNN studio' there'd be no question, I'd be with you 100% but the public property thing sends it into shadey territory.

    ELI5: yes, this time I did use quotation marks to indicate a quote. I'm random like that.
    about it. It's all smack dab in the middle of the sunlight.

    But do focus more on irrelevant stuff. It's totally drawing attention away from the important issue.

    Wasn't it supposed to be a town hall meeting, with school kids asking their own questions?
    If the news media writes the script for the kids questions, why bother having the kids there at all?
    It was for the drama, that's why.
    It was the news media manipulating the kids in order to advance their own biased agenda.

    (Or is this just more 'fake' news? I guess fake news comes in many forms, doesn't it. Some of it is fake, and some of it is just plain false. It gets to the point that you become skeptical of all of it, especially if you found it on the internet!)

    For what it's worth, that's how I see it.

    I was responding to your post so I guess you're the one leading it off the important issue.
