Shooting Survivor's Father Admits Doctored Email

Colton Haab’s dad admits omitting words in email about CNN town hall ‘scripted’ question argument
Colton Haab
On Valentines Day 2018, a lone gunman entered a Florida high school and killed students and teachers and wounded several others before leaving the building, visiting a McDonald's and walking around near a park. He was arrested without incident; no beatings no shooting, no rough stuff. While I recall Trump suggesting cops stop "being nice" to their arrest subjects, Iit seems Trump's concern doesn't span the full scope of criminals. (Just certain criminals).

Since the shootings, a few students have spoken out about failures of law enforcement and the federal government regarding providing safe schools for our kids. One student, Colton Haab, is a survivor of the mass killing. Haab joined others in speaking to the media but his interaction with cable news outlets carried (political or social) dynamics other survivors avoided or has no interest in pursuing. Colton Haab's father apparently has a mindset which differs greatly from the parents' of the majority of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High Schools student survivors.

Colton Haabs, father went public with an accusation CNN had changed the script of his son's TV appearance. Of course, you know what followed. The father's efforts to level "fake news" at CNN backfired via ensnaring Trump, other media, and Fox News (non media GP communications division).

“School shooting survivor says he quit @CNN Town Hall after refusing scripted question.” @TuckerCarlson. Just like so much of CNN, Fake News. That’s why their ratings are so bad! MSNBC may be worse.

Tucker Carlson and his typical Fox News style.

Colton Haab's first appearance

Carlson attempting to twist the knife on CNN.

And, conservatives had a few days of fun, fun, fun till facts took the story away.

CNN responded with a factual response. 

There is absolutely no truth to this story -- and we can prove that. CNN did not provide or script questions for anyone in last night's town hall, nor have we ever. Those are the facts. 🍎

After a few days as frequently the case with conservatives their media, the truth came forth. Colton Haab's father literally doctored the email he reported as CNN censorship. It seems the father's effort to cast a fake news shadow on CNN ended with the shadow on Trump, other media and Fox News (non-media GOP communications division).

Shooting Survivor's Father Admits Email Changes in CNN Spat

Oh, the sadness in watching conservative America drag us all into an abyss of social and political catastrophe is overwhelming.

Fox News Chief purveyors of Rightwing smut, Carlson and Hannity, also concede the story was bogus.
