Common Sense! Thank goodness for 18-year-old Brandon Minoff! He’s a survivor of the Florida school shooting and was brave enough to slam the media for politicizing the aftermath of the deadly incident.
He was interviewed below by Brian Williams who tried to frame the argument even though Minoff pushed back on him. He was also on CNN and saw that they also tried to frame an anti-gun argument.
Minoff, who was previously interviewed by CNN and MSNBC, told Fox News Tuesday that too many media outlets are focusing on gun control rather than the 17 people who died in last Wednesday’s shooting.
“I wholeheartedly believe that the media is politicizing this tragedy,” Minoff said. “It seems that gun control laws is the major topic of conversation rather than focusing on the bigger issue of 17 innocent lives being taken at the hands of another human.”
The survivor didn’t knock his fellow classmates for pushing gun control, noting that they are well-meaning and passionate about the issue, but questioned why the media wasn’t giving attention to students on the other side of the debate.
“After getting home Wednesday night, three hours after the shooting took place, sitting on the couch and putting on the news, it pained me to hear conversations of gun control laws as I had just luckily escaped one of the deadliest school shootings in US history,” Minoff said.
