CNN Uses Human High School Shield

When CNN finds a high school student perfectly willing and able to speak for himself, they give him a script. “Parkland shooting survivor Colton Haab said that CNN pushed him to ask a scripted question at their gun control town hall Wednesday night, overruling him on the questions he wanted to ask,” Peter Hasson writes on The Daily Caller. “‘CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted,’ Haab, a 17-year-old student at Stoneman Douglas High School, told local news station WPLG-TV. ‘I expected to be able to ask my questions and give my opinion on my questions.’”

“’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,’ the WLPG-TV reporter said.”
