Florida Shooting Survivor Doubles Down: CNN’s Entire Townhall Was Scripted

  • Florida Shooting Survivor Doubles Down: CNN’s Entire Townhall Was Scripted
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    The latest embarrassing blow to CNN’s (already tattered) credibility emerged last night when Colton Haab, the student who first exposed CNN for pushing him to ask a scripted question during Wednesday night’s town hall appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight to offer even more shocking details about CNN’s conduct.

    Yesterday, we noted that Haab, a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student and shooting survivor, had come forward to say he decided not to attend Wednesday night’s CNN town hall after CNN producers gave him a pre-scripted question for him to ask.

    But Haab told Carlson that the producers didn’t just want him to ask one scripted question: They essentially rewrote a list of questions and political points that he wanted to make at the town hall, prompting him to back away from the town hall. Haab told Carlson he shared with CNN what he wanted to say, but a producer named Carrie Stevenson ultimately rejected it, and instead after several conversations “scripted” a question for him.

    “CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted,” Haab said to a local news outlet Wednesday night,
     according to RealClearPolitics.


    Haab told Carlson he wanted to go “speak [his] part” and “open eyes” to a few things he thought could make the situation better. Haab said the network was dishonest and that is why he decided not to attend. He also said he was directed to “stick to the script.”
