GRANT STINCHFIELD (HOST): Yesterday when the Maryland school shooting broke, the story, I told you throughout the day that no one was giving it the coverage it deserved. Look at CNN, we actually ran the numbers here. I want you to listen to this list: Brooke Baldwin, Jake Tapper, Wolf Blitzer, Erin Burnett, Don Lemon, Anderson Cooper. Six shows in a row, from afternoon into prime time. Only two of these shows even mentioned the story and that heroic cop, Anderson Cooper at the very end of his show, and Wolf Blitzer for about five minutes. No one else, not one mention of the shooting. Some of these shows are two hours long. So what do they do? Instead of celebrating a hero cop who saved countless lives, they celebrate porn stars. No time for a hero. For weeks they were looking for solutions to save kids’ lives.  And the solution that we pushed, more armed security, a solution that works? They ignore it when we prove that it works. When that hero cop proved that it works. It’s coverage that they didn’t do that makes it so despicable.   

[…]

STINCHFIELD: And that is CNN. What are they doing? Pushing again the March for Our Lives this Saturday. Again, if they can’t have the story they want, which is dead children, by the way, to push this anti-gun assault on our Second Amendment, then they push the march. The march that they love so dear. And you wait, it will be highly produced. They will blow this out of the water come Saturday. But we will be here as well with a live broadcast.
