CNN will provide one hour of airtime to the President on Thursday which will be used to present a ‘Town Hall’ style pitch on gun control.
The announcement was made Sunday, with CNN stating that Obama will attempt “to make gun control part of his legacy.”
Anderson Cooper will host the 8pm special, which detractors will label a propaganda effort, in the wake of reports that Obama is set to announce executive action on gun control legislation within a week.
CNN notes that the event, whether purposefully or not, coincides with the fifth anniversary of the shooting of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, in an incident in Arizona that killed six others.
The Town Hall event will simply be titled “Guns in America.”
