The Hill reports:
A student survivor of last week’s mass shooting at a Parkland, Fla. high school told a local TV station he was asked by CNN to “write a speech and ask questions” for a town hall but declined to attend the event after “it ended up being all scripted.”
“CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted,” Colton Haab told WPLG-TV, an ABC affiliate in Miami. “I expected to be able to ask my questions and give my opinion on my questions,” said Haab.
“I don’t think that it’s going get anything accomplished,” he concluded. “It’s not gonna ask the true questions that all the parents and teachers and students have.”
On Twitter, many are pointing out that this kid had already been on Fox News calling for arming teachers. Haab has yet to provide any proof of his claim, but tell that to Breitbart, which has his claim as their top story this morning. Of course.
