CNN Reporter Doubles Down – Calls Hero Colton Haab a Liar Over Claims Town Hall Was Scripted
As TGP’s Cassandra Fairbanks previously reported, Colton Haab opted out of participating in CNN’s anti-gun town-hall event on Wednesday evening — seemingly because his perspective does not fit the narrative they have been peddling.
A second accuser also stepped forward on Thursday to accuse CNN of scripting their anti-gun town hall this week.
CNN scripted their entire anti-gun town hall which was hosted by anti-gun Jake Tapper. Shocker.
Despite this 17-year-old’s heroism, CNN would not allow him to ask his prepared questions.“CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted,” Haab said.
Fake News CNN didn’t want any students to go off of their anti-gun script.
On Thursday, CNN responded to hero Colton Haab’s claim the anti-gun town hall was scripted in a statement via CNN public relations’ Twitter account.
CNN accused Haab of lying and said, “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.”
Very fake news CNN never scripts their town halls, just ask Donna Brazile.
On Thursday, Trump unleashed on fake news CNN for refusing hero Colton Haab a platform because he wouldn’t parrot their script. Trump then took a swipe at MSNBC.
Trump tweeted: “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.

On Friday CNN reporter Drew Griffin doubled down and called hero Colton Haab a liar.
Drew Griffin responded to Trump’s tweet about Haab being refused a platform to speak since he didn’t go off of CNN’s script with, “This is just a lie. Repeated over and over again. And yet a lie. Facts matter.”

The Gateway Pundit has been on the receiving end of an onslaught of attacks from all sides simply because we dared question the liberal media’s agenda using the same Parkland students to push an anti-gun narrative.
We were right. We pointed out the obvious. The students appeared to be coached; CNN is only interviewing students who parrot anti-second amendment rhetoric.
CNN is calling a 17-year-old hero a liar. Will CNN receive the same treatment The Gateway Pundit is receiving? Rhetorical question, we know.
Griffin got pummeled by Trump supporters.
Breitbart’s John Nolte hammered Griffin!
After bullying an aging Florida woman as a Russian stooge and broadcasting her house address on the air…
Drew Griffin is now attacking a Parkland school shooting victim as a liar. https://t.co/xN1NxoY3E4

Oh look CNN is calling hero Colton Haab a liar.
Will CNN receive the same treatment we did at The Gateway Pundit? We ACCURATELY reported the kids were coached and given scripts to push gun control. We were viciously attacked for reporting the truth. https://t.co/3MKDkTdBJv

CNN literally passed debate questions to Hillary Clinton. They invented fake news. Anyone who defends CNN at this point is a russian bot.
