TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): I wouldn't question the ethics, this is flat out unethical, it’s wrong, and I can't imagine why they would win whatever dumb award they won. They should be ashamed what they did. I mean, people were really hostile towards you. How did you feel, what was that like? 

...

DANA LOESCH: What this town hall did was set dialogue back by I don't know how much. It pushed dialogue back. It was an embarrassing display of bias. And they should feel ashamed instead of back patting themselves for this. I mean, honestly one last thing Tucker, this, for them to say this advanced the national conversation on gun control is like saying the Salem witch trials advanced the conversation on women's rights. That's exactly what this was like. It was an embarrassment and they should be ashamed.  

TUCKER: And to do this just days after a mass murder to leverage that tragedy they way they did, they should be ashamed, I agree with you a hundred percent. Thanks very much for telling us what that was like, it’s disgusting.
