CNN organizes a town hall in Fl, invites survivors from the tragedy to speak, but can't help themselves as they get called out for not allowing free speech, instead scripts questions for all participants along a certain narrative, and shuts out contrasting viewpoints.

That bis complete BS. Dana Loesch from the NRA interrupted and spewed her agenda. The students wrote their own questions and some of them posted them online before the telecast. You need to stop making crap up.

Oh if only Wayne LaPierre and the NRA had a way to get their message across! Also, maybe look up the definition of "news".

Turns out the kid and his family doctored emails in an effort to discredit CNN.

Also apparently the first responders weren't feeling suicidal that day so slander the first responders. More scapegoating so they don't have to talk about guns.

Deplorables being deplorable.

In the United States, Australia, and Canada, it's ALL fake news, and has been for decades.

Unfortunately it's also becoming like this in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, and India as well.

Fake News (formally known as CNN) so-called Town Hall was a scripted and controlled event designed specifically to push their political agenda on a singular issue.

Their handling of Dana Loesch was despicable. Ms. Loesch was an invited participant but was treated as an object to be scorned.

Fortunately, informed people could see that CNN’s event was a politically motivated scam.
The interview of Colton Haab adds even more evidence:


Parkland student: CNN gave me 'scripted' questions on guns
www.washingtonexaminer.com

"I expected to be able to ask my questions and give my opinions on my questions," Colton Haab said.

Colton Haab, a Junior ROTC student and survivor of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., last week, said he going to participate in the CNN town hall Wednesday night, but decided not to when he said the network provided him with a list of “scripted questions.”

"I expected to be able to ask my questions and give my opinions on my questions," Haab told a local ABC affiliate, WPLG-TV. "CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions, and it ended up being all scripted."

Haab said he was asked to prepare a speech and some questions. He was planning to ask about school safety and the possibility of using veterans as armed security guards in schools but was rejected by CNN. After being told he had to ask a scripted question, Haab decided not to attend the town hall.

"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,” Haab said.

CNN tweeted a response statement Thursday morning saying there was no truth in Haab’s claims.
“There is absolutely no truth to this,” CNN Communications tweeted. “CNN did not provide or script questions for anyone in last night’s town hall, nor have we ever.”

The CNN communications statement said Haab’s father withdrew his name from participating in the town hall before it began. The team also invited Haab to come on CNN some time on Thursday to discuss his views on school safety.

NOTE: This story has been updated with CNN's response.

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/parkland-student-cnn-gave-me-scripted-que stions-on-guns/article/2649716

After CNN’s producer gave Colton Haab the question they required him to ask they called him twice to remind him” keep to the script”.

The Fake News (formally known as CNN) response was another flat-out lie. In an interview the father of Colton Haab he said he did not withdraw his son’s attendance. He agreed with his son that he was being used by CNN to push a political agenda which was not his own and decided not to participate for that reason.

After CNN’s producer gave Colton Haab the question they required him to ask they called him twice to remind him to”keep to the script”.

Caught, CNN’s response was to attack the student.

CNN has deep and wide- ranging problems. Their ratings are circling the drain, their CEO barely survived a board meeting expressly called to review his continued employment and their advertising revenue is declining fast. That fact is one of the reasons Jeff Zucker plans to lay off as many as 50 people as soon as this week and one of their primary on-air hosts, Don Lemon, is about to be fired.

CNN’s board of directors will meet soon to discuss the AT&T/Time Warner deal which will require that CNN be sold or spun-off as AT&T has said they will not close the deal with CNN as any part of their organization.

Regardless of ratings, Goob's intent is to discredit these kids' message and reaction, which is incredibly shameful considering Rubio is the one in the room getting money from one of the (very) interested parties. As I mentioned in another thread, this area has also recently weathered the Ft Lauderdale Airport shooting, and the Orlando nightclub attack just a few hours away. They are trying to do something about it.

Many of you may know of guitarist Ben Sparaco (Crazy Fingers, Freight Train, Wanee Fest, etc) who is an alum of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and has played several fundraisers for the victims, who are all people/families he knows, since the shooting. Goob, you tell him this community's reaction is "fake" next time you go see him play.

There was no "scripting".

Haab's dad was upset that producers thought his speech was too long for a town hall meeting where there isn't time for one person to steal the show.

At any rate, Haab's viewpoint is getting a lot more attention than it would have without this controversy, so he is coming out ahead.

Tucker Carlson actually admitted last night that this is all BS. Imagine that.

Will Goober also be triggered by this fake Fox News story that he fell for? Or maybe he’s only triggered by left wing fake news. Who knows.

http://www.newsweek.com/fox-news-sean-hannity-tucker-carlson-admit-falsely- accuse-cnn-parkland-town-823778


Two Fox News hosts corrected the record this week after running segments that falsely accused CNN of scripting a town hall event featuring survivors of the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Both Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson—perhaps the network's most prominent talking heads—issued brief apologies after the father of a Parkland survivor, Glenn Haab, admitted to doctoring emails from CNN that made it appear like the network was scripting a question for his son, Colton.

In a segment on his show, via Mediaite, Carlson said that when he had Colton on his show there was simply CNN's story and the Haab's story and, without access to email accounts, "we could only guess which one was telling the truth and guessing is not enough."


"For the sake of honesty and full disclosure to which we are committed, we have to tell you there is no evidence as of right now that CNN tried to give Colton Haab a scripted question, and we wanted you to know that," Carlson said on his show Tuesday.

Hannity made a similar concession on his show, via Mediaite. "Our job is always to strive for the truth and we want to correct the record," he said on his show Tuesday.

_____________________________________________________________________


So, Hannity admits that FOX got it wrong, that CNN was not at fault here. There ya go.
