CNN has been at the forefront of the national media’s push to exploit the Florida shooting to push for new gun control.
The centerpiece of their scheme was a town hall ambush of gun owners.
But their plan blew up in their faces after a heroic student revealed one secret.
Colton Haab was one of the heroes of the horrific tragedy in Parkland.
Haab – who was a member of JROTC – helped shield students from the gunman and saved lives.
And he was initially asked to participate in CNN’s town hall event.
But Haab claims CNN lost interest when he would not follow the script producers wanted him to follow.
Real Clear Politics reports on his interview with Tucker Carlson:
“Before we get into anything. I just want to make sure that everybody hasn’t forgotten why we are actually here tonight. I mean, we lost 17 lives last week. I actually physically put two to rest. To me, that was the hardest thing in the world to endure. Nobody should have to go through this. As long as we are taking the right steps to move forward from this and make sure this doesn’t happen again, I’m all for that,” Haab said on the Thursday broadcast of FOX News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight.
“We certainly haven’t forgotten. Thank you for reminding us yet again. And we think that the only way to make the country better and maybe put a dent in this scourge is to have a rational, thoughtful conversation about what to do next. And with that in mind, you were planning to go to this event last night and tell me if I am mischaracterizing any of this and you said at the request of a CNN producer you sent in a number of questions, — statements, questions you wanted to ask of the politicians on the stage and they rewrote one of your questions? Is that right?” Carlson asked.
Haab told Carlson he wanted to go “speak [his] part” and “open eyes” to a few things he thought could make the situation better. Haab said the network was dishonest and that is why he decided not to attend. He also said he was directed to “stick to the script.”
“She had actually said that over the phone that I needed to stick to the script,” Haab said of the CNN producer.
Haab said he believed all the questions asked at the town hall were scripted. Haab explained in detail what happened between him and the cable news network and what he thought of the town hall.”
Andrew Klein, a father of a student at Marjory Douglas Stoneman High School, also said a CNN producer had contacted him, but were looking for people to “espouse a certain narrative.”
The Daily Caller reports:
“Andrew Klein, a Republican gun-owner and the father of Ariana Klein, a junior at Stoneman Douglas, said on Fox News Thursday that he received a call from a CNN producer the day after the shooting last week.
He said it was “not surprising” that the town hall was focused on strict gun control measures, as the producer he spoke to was looking for people who wanted to talk about “policy.”
“I actually spoke to a CNN producer on Thursday, the day after the shooting, and the producer insinuated to me that they were looking for people who were willing to espouse a certain narrative, which was taking the tragedy and turning it into a policy debate,” Klein claimed. “And I read that as being a gun control debate.”
CNN’s town hall was nothing more than an anti-gun pep rally.
The network exploited the grieving teenagers so the so-called “journalists” could hide behind them as human shields to make their arguments that guns should be confiscated.
But now everyone knows it was scripted like a WWE WrestleMania event.
