NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch indicted the FBI and the mainstream media in a scathing speech at the 2018 Conservative Political Action Conference.

Loesch appeared at CNN’s town hall on the Parkland shooting Wednesday night to take questions from Stoneman Douglas High School students, but throughout her answers, she was heckled, booed and even called a “murderer.” (RELATED: Dana Loesch Battles Anti-Gun Students)

Loesch started out her CPAC speech by questioning how the FBI missed the many red flags related to the Parkland shooter but quickly turned her attention to CNN and the rest of the establishment media for their one-sided debates on the issue.

“You heard that town hall last night,” she told the crowd. “They cheered the confiscation of firearms. It was over 5,000 people. I had to have a security detail to get out. There were people rushing the stage and screaming ‘burn her!'”

She also called out the media outlets for spreading fake news right after the shooting, believing a white nationalist who claimed the shooter had trained with his group.

“Media was rushing to identify who this person was and POLITICO ran a headline that said, ‘a white nationalist says he’s one of us,'” Loesch recalled. “Here’s a message for people in the legacy media… don’t trust white nationalists. Don’t use them as sources. Don’t trust them.”

However, Loesch promised she would continue to “talk solutions” and told the audience that the government alone can not protect American citizens.
