Back-To-Back Scandals Roil CNN
Back-To-Back Scandals Roil CNN As Other Liberal Writers Call Them ‘Vile, Despicable, Gross’ For Targeting Female Trump Supporter For Harassment By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine
CNN is scrambling this week as they are suffering through two self-inflicted scandals that have them in all-out damage control mode. The damaged network is busy issuing denials over being busted for “scripting” their town hall event, and they are now calling one of the Parkland Florida school shooting survivors a liar, right on the heels of having targeted a female Trump supporter and doxing her (publicizing her personal information), which has resulted in her being attacked relentlessly by liberals online and offline.
CNN ACCUSED BY FLORIDA SHOOTING SURVIVOR OF ‘SCRIPTING” TOWN HALL EVENT
Colton Haab, the Junior ROTC student that courageously shielded students from an active shooter last Wednesday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 people were murdered, is accusing CNN of refusing to allow him to offer his commentary and ask his own questions at the town hall they held on Wednesday, stating that instead it “ended up being all scripted.”
“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.”
After being informed he would not be able to ask his own questions, nor offer his commentary that CNN originally asked him to write up, Haab chose to pull out from the event.
CNN rushed into damage control mode by issuing two sets of statements. The first said “CNN did not, and does not, script any questions for town hall meetings, ever.”
That is not exactly true, as CNN has a long history of organizing Democratic plants within their town hall events, as documented by the New York Post. Remember it was also CNN commentator Donna Brazile that was busted using her position with CNN to give Hillary Clinton prior notice of questions she would be asked during a televised debate.
CNN then offered an expanded statement after Haab’s accusations, via Senior Public Relations Manager at CNN, Richard Hudock:
There is absolutely no truth to this. CNN did not provide or script questions for anyone in last night’s town hall, nor have we ever. After seeing an interview with Colton Haab, we invited him to participate in our town hall along with other students and administrators from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Colton’s father withdrew his name from participation before the forum began, which we regretted but respected. We welcome Colton to join us on CNN today to discuss his views on school safety.
