Florida Shooting Survivor: CNN Gave "Scripted" Question After Refusing To Air His

Originally posted at iBankCoin.com

A Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student was approached by CNN to ask a question at Wednesday night's town hall, but declined after the network gave him a "scripted question" instead of allowing him to ask his own question.

Colton Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC who shielded students while shots rang out, Local 10 news that he was going to ask a question about hiring veterans as armed security guards.

"CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted," Haab told WPLG-TV.  "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."

CNN conducted the town hall on the Florida school shooting with Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Bill Nelson (D-FL), along with Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel and the NRA's Dana Loesch. Students and parents took turns asking questions about gun control and ensuring school safety.

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

 "Colton Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC who shielded classmates in the midst of terror says he did not get to share his experience," WPLG's Janine Stanwood explained. "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," reported Stanwood.

No doubt...but at least we don't have to have those insipid arguments anymore about the Alinsky Media being biased...it's self evident...lol.  

So, yeah (a little OT and looking for a decent segue...lol) remember back when the left and all enemies of America...(but I repeat myself!)...went into teeth clenching, hair pulling, clothes rending, apoplectic fits & convulsions because DJT pulled us out of the "Paris Accords" saying it was a bad deal for us...

"Brazil has struggled to rein in deforestation, which fuels greenhouse gas emissions. In Turkey, Indonesia and other countries with growing economies, new coal plants are being planned to meet the demand for electricity."

Congrats.  Welcome to the real world, kid.  This is probably the best education you've had in a long time.  Don't waste it.

You have to see into the minds of those ruling over you.

So you have a school shooting, tragedy strikes, the first thing that goes through their minds is how to exploit the situation to their advantage. Every fucking time!

So you get a reporter, look here we want you to read this script to portray the narrative they want.

9/11 a labour party person when them planes hit said "today is a good day to bury bad news". WTF!

Once you understand their mind you are better defended against them and their gaslighting technique.

So do you think my UK government will represent me in this life or not?

Nope not a chance hence democracy is but an illusion just like any other script to con you.

Script on the economy is it is doing well, well is it?

All fucking scripts!

A lesson for this kid...and the majority of you sheeple of the USA - nothing carried by the mainstream media regarding political subjects go unscripted.

This kid should buy lots of guns and kill all the adults in America. It's obvious that adults are evil.  Kill, kill, kill!  That is the American way.

on a more serious note, who the fuck knows if this kid is telling the truth.  He sounds right-wing.  Maybe he wanted to ask "Can I shoot niggers to save America but not shoot white people?"  or "Should we give training in safety and gun use to owners so they don't waste bullets? Lead is a poison to the environment so when they miss it hurts Earth".

Good thing all the people on Fox are speaking their own words.
