CNN’s Brooke Baldwin recently canceled an interview she had planned with Kyle Kashuv, a conservative student who survived the massacre at Majority Stoneman Douglass High School.
Kashuv said that he had been booked to appear on Brooke Baldwin’s afternoon show on the news network but CNN took exception to his retweeting a Daily Wire article in which someone who called Brooke a “fake news hypocrite.”

But don't worry, CNN really wants to have the other side on, as long as they're complicit https://t.co/t95zexPiF8

Clay Travis is a sports commenter who was kicked off of Brooke’s show in September of last year for stating he believed “in only two things completely: the First Amendment and boobs.” It was a (somewhat inappropriate) joke he’d made before, but for Brooke, it was off-hand enough to kick him off the show. “I just want to make sure I heard you correctly as a woman anchoring this show,” she interrupted. “What did you just say, you believe in the first amendment and B-double-O-B-S?”
Over six months later, Travis couldn’t help but point out how hypocritical Brooke was being, given that she’d participate in CNN’s endless coverage of Stormy Daniels, but kick him off their network for saying the word “boobs.” This week, Brooke had a porn star on her show who was friends with Stormy Daniels, leading Travis to put her on blast:

Baldwin went a step further, later linking to her guest’s porn-filled Twitter account. Ironically, if anyone were to describe the contents of that Twitter account on Brooke’s TV show, they’d be kicked off.
While anti-gun Parkland students like Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg have been given wall-to-wall coverage on CNN and MSNBC, schoolmates like Kashuv, who are more supportive of Second Amendment rights, have been mostly shut out of mainstream media coverage.
The hit with Baldwin, coming five weeks after the initial tragedy, would have been his first one-on-one interview with the network. They must be relieved they found an excuse to cancel the interview in time.
