Student: CNN Rewrote My Town Hall Question, Told Me to 'Stick to the Script'



A Florida student claims that CNN rewrote his question for the network's Wednesday night town hall debate on gun violence.  Colton Haab, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School says he did not attend the event when he realized it would be a "total waste of [his] time."

On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Haab said he was contacted several days ago by a CNN producer who asked him to write a speech to deliver at the event, in addition to questions to ask.

He said after some back and forth, he was eventually provided with a question that was not his own words.
"They had taken what I had wrote and what I had briefed on and talked about, and they actually wrote the question for me," Haab said, He said that's why he decided not to attend the town hall.

"Originally, I had thought that it was going to be more of my own question and my own say. And then it turned out to be more of just a script," Haab said. "And [the producer] had actually said that over the phone, that I needed to stick to the script."
