  • Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg has some strategies for dealing with smears and conspiracy theories.A Parkland shooting survivor on why teen activists won't be silenced: “We are teenagers who have nothing to lose.” - http://bit.ly/2qMGudJSubscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjOAfter surviving the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Hogg and his classmates became vocal activists in the fight for gun control. But that spotlight has made them prime targets for the right-wing smear machine: a collection of Fox News hosts like Laura Ingraham, conservative pundits, conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones, Twitter provocateurs, and YouTube commentators who piled on to the teens in the wake of the shooting. Rather than crumbling under the pressure, they're using humor and advertiser pressure to keep their cause in the media spotlight while disarming their critics. In the face of intense media attention, the Parkland students are putting on a masterclass in how to deal with bullies.Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.
