CNN Devolves Narrative into Virtual Shouting Match with “Scripted” Teen

At one point in its history, CNN was believed to have been a network owned, operated, and anchored by adults.  Today, however, we’re not so sure.

As the nation continues to come to grips with the horrendous tragedy that took place last week in Parkland, Florida, the liberally biased “news” network predictably jumped back into their irreverent hate for all things gun, attacking the Second Amendment with a ferocity not seen in nearly two decades.  Only after the tragic events of Columbine High School in 1999 have we had such an emotional, knee jerk reaction to the nation’s inalienable right to bear arms.

CNN is, of course, leading the way in their manipulation of the national narrative, jumping immediately from feigned grief to leftist propaganda with a town hall event designed simply to garner ratings for the failing network.  This event occurred while emotions were still running high after 19 year old Nikolas Cruz’s rampage, and well before some of his victims were even laid to rest.

Worse yet, reports that the entire event was scripted poured in thanks to teenage whistleblower who was asked by the network to abandon his own thoughts on the subject in favor of a prepared statement written by staff at CNN.

To further insult the nation, this young man was a survivor of the Parkland shooting, and a voice that the nation desperately wanted to hear.

Now, after being wholly outed as progressive propagandists by this disenfranchised young adult, CNN has taken the 4th grade approach to problem solving, and is now attempting to insult and harass the brave whistleblower.

“CNN released emails from a network producer on Friday that contradict a Florida high school student’s claim that the network scripted a question that he was supposed to ask at a televised town hall event this week.

“Colton Haab, a survivor of last week’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., said Thursday on Fox News that CNN had initially asked him to ‘write a speech and ask questions’ for the event but that a producer ultimately scripted a question for him. CNN has denied that claim.

“According to Business Insider, CNN and Haab agreed on the question that he would ask at the town hall. His father, Glenn Haab, pulled his son out of the event after the network refused to let the student read a lengthy speech.”

CNN is claiming that Haab, a young man wracked with grief and trauma after watching 17 of his classmates murdered, felt it prudent to doctor a set of emails between himself and a CNN producer in order to gain personal attention.

This absurd accusation demonstrates the slant and bias of CNN more than anything else, and their need to hurl insults and allegation toward a mourning child tells us all that we need to know about the network.
