Two students now claiming CNN scripted the event

Real Clear PoliticsAriana Klein, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, said it was "inexcusable" that CNN would attempt to get fellow survivor of the school shooting Colton Haab to deliver a "scripted question" at a Wednesday town hall event conducted by the network on the massacre. Klein attended the listening session hosted by President Trump at the White House on Wednesday.

Haab appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight Thursday and said that not only was he given a scripted question but he believed the whole event was scripted.

CNN is making a full court press on gun control, and I think I can guess why. They want to put pressure on Trump to give in on gun control, convincing the Republican base of gun owners to feel betrayed and leading to an election loss in November.

Trump may be wavering on this point, specifically on bump stocks, but so far no permanent damage has been done. Hopefully we can keep it that way, and reminding everyone that CNN is scripting their coverage of this murder spree to a political focus is one way to do that.
