Dear Mainstream Media: Stop Allowing David Hogg To Say Whatever He Wants Without Challenge [Watch]
Carl Arbogast, RedState
One has to wonder what the statute of limitations is when a person goes from a “victim who should be allowed to speak” to a political hack who should get challenged on his views.
As Parkland student David Hogg makes the rounds on television, he continues to spout nonsense. While conservatives in the media have stopped giving him a free pass, it’s those in the mainstream media, particularly on television who continue to allow him to say whatever he wants, without question. He’s repeated some of the more absurd left-wing talking points, and the hosts just sit there with a crap-eating grin on their faces or nod along solemnly as though Hogg is saying something profound.
Watch this clip on CNN. Wolf Blitzer lets Hogg (who is obviously reading off a cheat sheet containing the talking points he covers — you can see him looking at it) rattle off a bunch of nonsense:
