    I don't believe CNN on this, I believe that student and others that said these "townhalls" were staged and scripted for a gun control narrative. CNN has been caught stacking the audience with D staffers and passing them off as "undecided voters", giving candidates debate questions in advance., bogus focus groups made of liberal activists, staging protests and handing them out the signs and more. Rubio walked into a trap but maybe he'll learn to avoid these hacks the next time:

    KASKY: Senator Rubio, it's hard to look at you and not look down a barrel of an AR-15 and not look at Nicholas Cruz, but the point is you're here and there some people who are not.

    And I need to ask two things of you. Number one, Chris Grady, can you stand up? This is my friend who is going to the military. I need you to tell him that he's going to live to make it to serve our country. And then we'll get to the other one.

    RUBIO: Not only are you going to live to serve our country, you and you and all of you have a chance to change our country. Change not just our laws but the way we talk about our laws. So absolutely.

    KASKY: Thank you. And guys, look, this isn't about red and blue. We can't boo people because they're democrats and boo people because they're republicans. Anyone who is willing to show change, no matter where they're from, anyone who is willing to start to make a difference is somebody we need on our side here. And this is about people who are for making a difference to save us and people who are against it and prefer money. So Senator Rubio, can you tell me right now that you will not accept a single donation from the NRA in the future?

    So they traded a hero in Colton Haab for a lunatic.

    The Fox News reporter never allowed the student to tell him what his original question was and what the suggested question was. Were they basically the same after some rewording? Does anyone know after this very biased interview?

    It wasn't just one question but several and one had something to do with arming teachers. This link shows the whole email exchange:

    Parkland shooting survivor's family shops doctored emails with CNN to media outlets

    this is what the father claimed:

    “This is what Colton and I discussed on the phone. He needs to stick to this.”

    but the CNN guy wrote:

    “This is what Colton and I discussed on the phone that he submitted. He needs to stick to this.”

    makes it look like CNN DID formulate the question in the first, the second is unclear, you could think Colton submitted the phone and not the question. All of these involved looked out to push an agenda, and that's exactly what happened.

    CNN was ordering someone to stick to what they liked and what meshed with their narrative. They should have let the kids say whatever they wanted. They're guilty.
