It didn’t take long after the horrific mass shooting occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida last week until the mainstream media outlets sought to assemble a group of students to help advance their agenda, carefully putting together a town hall last night where some of these students grilled lawmakers on gun control.
One of the students that was invited to CNN’s town hall, Colton Haab, claims he refused to attend after CNN told him that he must ask the scripted questions they provided him and not the questions he wanted to ask regarding using veterans as armed guards at schools to protect students. Clearly, this would not have advanced the gun control agenda of the mainstream media and Democratic Party, and as such Haab’s question was denied.
Colton Haab is a member of the Junior ROTC at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, who courageously shielded his fellow students using Kevlar sheets that were present in the JROTC room.
Haab told Local 10 News that he was invited to CNN’s town hall last night and was told to prepare a speech and questions in advance. However, to Haab’s surprise, CNN told him to use scripted questions instead of his own thoughts, concerns and suggestions as to how best to prevent school shootings in the future.
“CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions, and it ended up being all scripted,” junior Colton Haab said Wednesday night.
Haab wrote questions about school safety and suggested using veterans as security guards, but he claims CNN wanted him to ask scripted questions instead.
So, Haab said, he declined to participate.
“I don’t think that it’s going to get anything accomplished,” Haab said. “It’s not going to ask the true questions that all the parents and teachers and students have.”
Both Haab and his parents had dressed up, expecting to appear on the CNN town hall, until Haab was informed that he would have to stick to questions predetermined by CNN, at which point both Haab and his parents refused to participate.
CNN responded to Haab’s claims by essentially branding him a liar, claiming “there is absolutely no truth to this.”
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.
Someone isn’t telling the truth, and given CNN’s embarrassing “fake news” mistakes over the past year, I’d wager the statement of a JROTC student who helped shield his classmates from danger during a shooting is significantly more reliable than the mainstream media’s.
In case you are unaware of past incidents of CNN scripting events and portraying them as real news, a bystander in London caught CNN staging an anti-ISIS protest following a terror attack by local Muslims, even going so far as to provide them with posters and positioning them for the camera. Ironically, CNN’s reporter starts off the broadcast by telling the viewers about a “wonderful scene”, to which the bystanders snickered to in the background having just watched CNN stage the entire “wonderful scene”.
CNN has been forced to deny staging an anti-jihadist protest by ‘Muslim Mothers’ for a “fake news” report, after raw footage appeared to show the event was choreographed for the cameras.
The video shows Anderson and a substantial crew appearing to direct the mostly female “demonstrators”, who file under a cordon one at a time under the watchful eye of nearby police constables.
Flowers are laid out around the group as it appears, and printed placards bearing slogans such as ‘#Love Will Win’ and ‘#TurnToLove’ are spread out.
After crew members make sure everyone is in place, Anderson begins her report saying, “What I want to show you now, viewers, is a wonderful scene” – to muffled laughter from Mark Antro, who filmed the set-up, and other bystanders.
It should come as no surprise then that CNN and other mainstream media outlets routinely stage and script events such as their town hall on gun control last night. There should be no question in anyone’s mind of their agenda as they threw off any shadow of fair reporting during the election and openly presented their anti-Trump hatred on live television. In the last 3 months of 2017 alone, research showed that 90% of mainstream media statements regarding Donald Trump were indeed negative. A Pew Research study has also shown that President Trump has received more negative media coverage than any other president in recent history.
Since we now know that the mainstream hates Trump with a passion and will go through extraordinary lengths to damage his administration, is it at all far-fetched to believe that CNN would script a gun control town hall and other events in order to advance their agenda?
In fact, it would be more shocking to find out that CNN didn’t script their events to ensure an anti-Trump bias, rather than the other way around.
