Kyle Kashuv, Parkland shooting survivor and the loudest voice on the pro-gun side of the debate amongst his peers, was scheduled to appear on CNN today. However, according to Kashuv, the appearance was canceled by CNN itself.
Kashuv, who has frequently advocated for more security in schools versus restriction of gun rights, tweeted out the cancelation, explaining that it was due to a link he shared on Twitter.
.@CNN canceled my interview with them for a RT of an article that states actual facts in there, but for some reason they don't say a word when people call @DLoesch a child murderer, the @NRA murderers, and @marcorubio is like looking down the barrel of an AR-15 on their network.

NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch also commented on the cancellation.
He tweeted and article that quoted someone else saying “fake news hypocrite.” If that merits the greatly exaggerated use of “disparagement” then we’re going to have fun with adjectives today.

The cancellation comes at a time when CNN and other media have been called out by Republicans and conservatives for not giving a voice to Kashuv, the only prominent right of center voice among the Parkland survivors.
As of posting time, CNN has not released a statement on the cancellation of Kashuv’s interview.
