CNN hosted a townhall meeting with some of the students who attended Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The purpose of the townhall was to push the call for more gun control.
ROTC student Colton Haab, helped get students to shelter during the shooting and has spoken out about his experience. However, when Haab was ready to take part in the townhall, he refused, telling the media that he was handed a list of scripted questions that students were directed to ask during the public meeting.
When news of the scripted questions given to students reached conservative media outlets, they blasted CNN for using the students as puppets to push their own anti-gun agenda.
CNN has reacted, saying that they never handed out scripted questions to students, basically calling Habb a liar.
(The Daily Caller) – CNN reached out directly to The Daily Caller to deny the claim made by a Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor in regard to Wednesday night’s gun safety town hall in Florida.
Colton Haab, a JROTC enlistee who has previously spoken with media outlets about how he helped his peers seek shelter during the shooting, did not take part in Wednesday’s event on the grounds that CNN attempted to plant “scripted” questions for him to ask.

“CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted,” Haab claimed. “I expected to be able to ask my questions and give my opinion on my questions.” (RELATED: Parkland Survivor Claims CNN Planted ‘Scripted’ Questions At Town Hall)…
CNN is not only THE most liberal and far left media news outlet (if you call their tripe news), but they have the record of reporting the most fake news stories among all of the mainstream media outlets. At times, its easier to believe the grocery store tabloids about aliens having babies with earth women than it is to believe anything CNN prints. Frankly, like many conservatives, I tend to believe this student and that CNN are the liars.
