Shooting Survivor: CNN Gave Me "Scripted Question" After Denying Question About Armed Guards
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Colton Haab said he was approached by CNN to ask a question at Wednesday night's town hall
but decided not to after the network gave him a "scripted question,"
quashing one he wrote himself. Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC shielded students while the school was under attack from the shooter, said he was going to ask about using veterans as armed security guards. (CNN response below.)
"CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted," Haab told WPLG-TV.
CNN aired a town hall on the Florida school shooting
with Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Bill Nelson (D-FL) that included
NRA's Dana Loesch and Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel that was
moderated by Jake Tapper. Students and parents asked questions about gun
control and 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."
