So, how does CNN handle an active shooter situation in Colorado Springs this Friday? Why, bring in an anti-Planned Parenthood GOP Representative to attack the organization, question whether it was too early for their spokesperson to say the organization was under attack or not and demand that they apologize if they weren't. And to add insult to injury, toss in some lies about the discredited and highly edited videos that the right wing has been using to smear them.

Shame on CNN, the producers of The Situation Room, host Brianna Keilar and on Rep. Adam Kinzinger for subjecting their viewers to the travesty in the video above.

I'll just leave you with a few tweets from Joan Walsh which sums this up perfectly.

Can you help us out?
