Nope

As right-wing reporters have now admitted, the kid was full of #, kinda like YOUR OP

DENY IGNORANCE



UPDATE: CNN released the following statement Thursday morning:

CNN did not, and does not, script any questions for town hall meetings, ever.

UPDATE @8:47AM ET: CNN released a more extensive statement that explained the situation.

In a longer statement, CNN confirmed Haab was invited by the network to participate but his father decided to withdraw his name from participation. CNN said Haab wanted to give an extensive speech and not just ask a question, something the network said the forum was not designed for. CNN noted the subject Haab wanted to address, arming teachers, was discussed at length in the 2-hour long town hall event.

CNN has invited Haab to appear on the network.

Full statement from CNN's Richard Hudock:


There is absolutely no truth to this. CNN did not provide or script questions for anyone in last night's town hall, nor have we ever. After seeing an interview with Colton Haab, we invited him to participate in our town hall along with other students and administrators from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Colton’s father withdrew his name from participation before the forum began, which we regretted but respected. We welcome Colton to join us on CNN today to discuss his views on school safety.


According to a CNN insider Haab wanted to give an extensive speech and not just ask a question, something the network said the forum was not designed for. When the family was told this they decided to pull out of the event. The CNNer also noted the subject Haab wanted to address, arming teachers, was discussed at length in the 2-hour long town hall.

LOL - get a load of this, your CNN statement gets dissected therein....
Nice that they infer Haab is a liar - he's a shooting survivor. CNN is calling a shooting survivor a liar.
Are you suggesting that this shooting survivor is a liar too?? CNN rewrote his questions to the point of a completely different and single question, CNN say so themselves in their statement that they asked him to rewrite his statement.

sent him an entirely different question to read.
Haab also inferred that it appeared that all the questions were scripted and referenced that all the students who asked questions had the exact same size/type of notepaper with a single question written on it.


We know what his question was, what was the question CNN transcribed??


He was just about to read it out for Tucker (he had it with him) when Tucker remained focused on verifying, 3 times, that CNN rewrote what Haab had written (Tucker appeared to not be too interested in what the CNN scripted question was - which I found odd)

Here is the interview from an hour ago...

Now Hannity is talking about him at CPAC and after he read out CNNs statement, it was met with resounding boos.

I would have found that very odd, especially since CNN have said that Haab's particular question was part of the forum by someone, and not unexpected really in some form or another, however that's my opinion.
As for speeches in a forum, they are usually reserved for guest speakers with a Q&A session to follow, such would be Haab's role as a questioner, rather than making speeches other than an appeal of some kind, since their questions were addressed to public figures..who hopefully would have some expertise.

Anyway, since the head of the NRA came out of hiding tonight looking like something out of a Foghorn Leghorn cartoon, (pay attention to me boy..and don't foget what I say) with a very eloquent speech about good guy and bad guy with a gun, (pistols at dawn style)
It's now all irrelevant, well....so he says!

There a lot of great places in the wold to live but none as great as this country.





Whooo thanks for that. That's about the funniest thing I think I've read all day. Oh man....thank you I was kinda dour before this. This cheered me right up.. ....



Bahahahhahahaahahhahaha....whoooo ok ok im done now...hahahahha

Holy crap I'd rather kill myself than live in America. Seriously. Why would I want to live in a country where the topic of this thread is even an issue? Not to mention the idea of having to pay to go to a hospital, that an ambulance may leave me to die because I have the wrong insurance and countless other things that make America probably one of the last places I'd want to live in this world. America's a #ing joke ass third world # hovel...

Hmmm... I guess wherever you live is one of those places I should never go for fear of being identified as American and verbally insulted. One thing about America is that we let everything out into the open. ATS is a US based site. Does your country have such a place to debate openly about the things that a government would otherwise want to keep quiet?



Why yes. Yes it does in fact I feel more open talking about my things in my country than I would in America. You know.all that people being offended stuff you guys talk about just doesn't happen here. I like to read about it just so I can see how #ed it really is down there. Ya no my country's pretty #ing awesome to live in. It's not like I haven't been to America either this comes also from first hand experience being in the country as well.

And I mean what kind.of country lets their election come down to a tax dodging possibly murderous criminal or a tax dodging criminal that bankrupted a bunch of businesses and destroyed several low income neighborhoods. Seriously it's not even funny and you all argue like it would have made the slightest #ing difference who won. America would be the funniest #ing reality show in the world if you forget that they seem intent on destroying and conquering it.

It'a pretty funny how Americans think their country is so #ing free. It's pretty #ing laughable especially when such ignorance about the rest of the world comes with it.

Let's see, the thread is about CNN scripting questions and my comment about the USA being a great place to live drove you into a vicious, cussing rant laced with insults. I picture you foaming at the mouth hardly able to catch your breath while screaming. Spittle coming out of your mouth with every word. Hands in the air... fists balled... and I thought Canadians were mild and polite.

EDIT: big shout out to the US women's Olympic hockey team winning the gold!


I like that image that's pretty great. You can picture that if you want...though you don't know what I look like so I imagine that's difficult. It was more just laughter the whole time though. It is pretty funny the attitudes Americans have that their.country is the best in the world when it lacks so many of.the things that really make a country not some barbaric wasteland where children shoot up schools and endless miles of empty highway are dotted with suicide prevention and anti drug ads. Where saying the wrong thing to someone, going in the wrong neighbourhood, talking to a person of the wrong colour can get you shot or killed. Where if I did get shot I'd be out tens of thousands of dollars because apparently freedom means you have to pay for that # instead of having society pay for the well being of it's citizens. Personally I feel like I have the freedom to do far more things than anyone in America has. I don't need to worry about the smallest injury or sickness ruining my life. That's the type of # I'd expect in some backassward 3rd world #hole not the country that all it's citizens think is the greatest in the world...America and North Korea have something in common....both countries citizens seem to have a rabid superiority about how amazing their country is to live in....both are horribly horribly wrong.

I dunno why you thought Canadians were mild mannered and polite. We live in barren icefields and fight polar bears for fun.

So Hannity went on and on and on and on and on... and never bothered to ask Haab what CNN handed to him to read. Why?

That's so weird. That's NOT "the subject Haab wanted to address:"


"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.


...quoted from the very same article you linked to!

So Haab wanted to address arming teachers, discussed for hours, but his specific issue was that they be veterans. And he is whining because?

My point to soberbacchus is that CNN mischaracterized Haab's talking point to pretend that it was discussed whether he was at the townhall or not.

But, that's a lie. 'Armed teachers' is not the same thing as 'military vet security guards'. Teachers should obviously NOT be expected to play both roles.

This just makes Colton Haab more credible in his allegation, IMO. CNN lies.

CNN just flat out lied to everyone's face on Twitter. They really think the public is this uninformed.

“School shooting survivor says he quit @CNN Town Hall after refusing scripted question.” @TuckerCarlson. Just like so much of CNN, Fake News. That’s why their ratings are so bad! MSNBC may be worse.

This story is evidence that the right is also exploiting this massacre to advance its agenda. How do we know that this student is real? Maybe he is a "crisis actor" hired by the right, or an alt-right student?


You're an aspiring journo - now's your chance to shine and present the evidence to reflect your allegations.


This kid has already been attacked by the left - seems they can attack any kid with a narrative that doesn't fit, but if any attack on the legitimacy of any kid pushing their narrative happens, they are up in arms accusing people of hating children. What a complete joke the left has become.

CNN accusing a kid who was involved of being a liar. I guess they think that is OK now

Yes, thanks to our "plain speaking" President. I have not been following this story... has Haab given any additional interviews where he actually said they handed him a script? He did not say that on the local news. That was added by the right wing blogger who either does not know the difference between "news" and a "media event." Or at least he hopes his followers do not.

And the right is savaging the other survivors. One is even being used to trash the FBI.

How exactly do you know that CNN only changed his questions? Where did you find this information? Please back up your claim, thanks in advance.

Just be aware that you'll need a far better and FAR more trustworthy source than CNN, this sorry excuse for a "news" outlet where they now claim that they have never provided or scriptet questions to anyone. Obviously they hope that everyone have forgotten about Donna Brazile. Remember her, the cheater who was fired from CNN as contributor after she sent debate questions to Hillary Clinton?

COMMUNIST NEWS NETWORK= CNN . Need I say more. The entire Democratic party has been taken over by Socialists that call themselves Progressives. Progressive is code word for Communist. This is why they attach themselves to all the fringe groups so they can increase their numbers. The LGBT community is the biggest duped group. Sure some on the right don't care for their life styles but by attaching themselves to the left they will eventually cut their own throats. Not only will their life styles be squashed but will have the strong arm of totalitarianism smashing them. Not all conservatives are anti-gay. In fact I have many gay friends who are more conservative than this extreme left. What is really needed is a pull back from the left right paradigm and look at the deep state agenda. Divide and conquer and the problem reaction solution methods they use.
