Tit-for-tat. Mistakes are mistakes. If you own up to it that means you aren't seeking to misinform. if you are trying to qualify one type of mistake over another then you are in the wrong and wearing your bias on your sleeve.

I don't have any proof CNN scripted this, or fed questions to kids. But when the kid tried to back Rubio into a corner, asking if he would publicly state that he would not take anymore campaign contributions from the NRA, it make me think that somebody was pushing an agenda and using the kids to do it.
A high school kid, who just went through a horrific experience, is concerned about Rubio's campaign finance?
To me, that just looked a bit too convenient.
- At some point, the Haabs provide CNN with a word doc containing the emails they exchanged with CNN — except Glenn Haab allegedly deletes the words “that he submitted,” and despite the fact that CNN already has their own copies of the emails they exchanged and would surely notice that the words were omitted.
An allegedly doctored email sent to producers at Fox News that was then sent to CNN:
Wonder if members on here will man up and do the same?
Just before Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School senior Emma González launched into her now-iconic 11-minute gun control speech, she warned the crowd that it was going to be a long one.
“I know this looks like a lot, but these are my AP Gov notes,” González said as she raised a stack of handwritten pages in the air in front of thousands of people gathered at a vigil. It had been three days since a former student killed 17 people at her Parkland, FL, high school.
After she delivered her speech, González was so confident in front of news cameras that conspiracy theorists quickly accused her of being a crisis actor. Critics questioned how a high school senior could have such tight talking points. Rumors spread on YouTube and Twitter that the Stoneman Douglas students like her who were making repeat appearances on cable news networks were actually 30-year-old pawns of gun-control advocates. Others, like, CNN anchor Dana Bash, praised the students for their “amazing ability to have presence of mind and to be able to speak truth to power in a way that a lot of adults can’t do.”
But it turns out the Stoneman Douglas students being scrutinized are just teens with really good teachers at a school with resources. They are a testament to what public schools can produce if students have support at home and in well-funded schools.
Many of the high-profile Stoneman Douglas seniors are in the same AP United States Government and Politics program this year, helmed by Jeff Foster, who helped create the AP government curriculum for the entire Broward County Public Schools system.
On the day of the shooting, Foster taught the AP Gov students about special interest groups, like the NAACP, American Medical Association, and the National Rifle Association. His lesson plan that day included a discussion about the Columbine and Sandy Hook school shootings, with emphasis on how every politician comes out afterward a tragedy to say the right thing about changing gun regulation. The students learned how the NRA goes to work as soon news reporters and the public move on to the next story.
“That’s not the NRA’s fault, that’s our fault,” Foster says. “We lose attention and that’s why interest groups run the country. If it’s not the NRA then it’s another group.”

Cnn are liars, we were all here for the election. They overplayed their hand.
Why are you on here backing up liars?
They deserve third phase status here.
