Florida Shooting Survivor: CNN Gave Me “Scripted Question” After Denying Armed Vets Question
Kudos to this student who stepped up speaking out when the easy thing to do was to just fall in line with everyone else.
CNN has a history of using scripted questions in town halls and Presidential debates. Who do you believe?
Conservatives already knew about the dirty tricks CNN likes to play… but it’s sure nice to have proof.
Can we have a town hall with students who felt they were being manipulated by the MSM?

Douglas High School student Colton Haab said he was asked by CNN to ask a question at the Town Hall they hosted last night. He says he decided not to after the network gave him a “scripted question,” instead of letting him use his own question.
CNN has responded that they never give scripted questions…Suuuuure! If you believe that, I’ve got some swampland in Florida to sell you.
Haab is a member of the Junior ROTC and bravely shielded students while the school was under attack from the shooter.
“CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted,” Haab told WPLG-TV.
CNN aired a town hall on the Florida school shooting with Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Bill Nelson (D-FL) that included NRA’s Dana Loesch and Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel that was moderated by Jake Tapper. Students and parents asked questions about gun control and school safety.
“I expected to be able to ask my questions and give my opinion on my questions,” Haab said.
“Colton Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC who shielded classmates in the midst of terror says he did not get to share his experience,” WPLG’s Janine Stanwood explained.
“Colton wrote questions about school safety, suggested using veterans as armed school security guards but claims CNN wanted him to ask a scripted question instead so he decided not to go,” Stanwood reported.
“CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted,” Haab said. “I don’t think that it’s going get anything accomplished. It’s not gonna ask the true questions that all the parents and teachers and students have.”
It’s like #CNN can’t help itself from injecting scripted leftist narratives…

I hate @CNN.
They reward Florida student hero Colton Haab by trying to FORCE him to use SCRIPTED questions & then REFUSING to let him share his experiences!
Apparently he doesn’t BLINDLY follow a Liberal agenda!
Shame on those JERKS!https://t.co/7InKqNPrLy

This is why you never attend a CNN town hall. It’s rigged and scripted, and remember when CNN gave town hall questions to Donna Brazile. https://t.co/A4bdZMEgzK
