Questions are swirling about anti-gun activist David Hogg, a survivor of the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, after multiple suspicious videos of him have surfaced.
In the wake of last Wednesday’s mass shooting at Marjory Douglas High School, Hogg has rose to prominence as an anti-gun activists. However, many are now scratching their heads after it was revealed that CBS Los Angeles featured him in a report back in 2017.
Infowars reported that Hogg was featured as the eyewitness and videographer of a testy encounter between Hogg, a veteran Redondo Beach, California, lifeguard and a surfer, who was reportedly Hogg’s friend, in August of 2017. Hogg claimed the lifeguard attacked his surfer friend over the issue of resting a sandy bodyboard on a beach trash can.
Hogg has since reconnected with CBS for an appearance on CBS This Morning as the mainstream media has been shamelessly featuring high school students as figureheads for a new anti-gun push. CBS posted a photo of Hogg with fellow teen activists and CBS reporter Gisela Perez that was later taken down after Kristinn Taylor of The Gateway Pundit reported on the photoshoot and how odd it is that all parties looked so cheerful and enthusiastic in the wake of such a tragedy.

Some viewers have said that it appears that Hogg and fellow activist Emma Gonzalez were being coached through this strange interview on CNN in which both teens demanded the abolition of the National Rifle Association:
