QUESTION HE WANTED TO ASK. CNN DENIES SCRIPTING ANYTHING. IN OTHER WORDS, THEY’RE CLAIMING THAT COLTON HAAB IS A LIAR. COLTON HAAB JOINS US TONIGHT. COLTON, THANKS FOR COMING ON.>>ABSOLUTELY. THANKS SO MUCH FOR HAVING ME. BEFORE WE GET INTO ANYTHING. I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYBODY HASN’T FORGOTTEN WHY WE ARE ACTUALLY HERE TONIGHT. I MEAN, WE LOST 17 LIVES LAST WEEK.>>Tucker: YES.>>I ACTUALLY PHYSICALLY PUT TWO TO REST TO. ME THAT WAS THE HARDEST THING TO ENDURE. NOBODY SHOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH. THIS AS LONG AS WE ARE TAKING THE RIGHT STEPS TO MOVE FORWARD FROM THIS AND MAKE SURE THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN AGAIN, I’M ALL FOR THAT.>>WE CERTAINLY HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN. THANK YOU FOR REMINDING US YET AGAIN. WE THINK THAT THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE THE COUNTRY BETTER AND MAYBE PUT A DENT IN THIS SCOURGE IS TO HAVE A RATIONAL, THOUGHTFUL CONVERSATION ABOUT WHAT TO DO NEXT. AND WITH THAT IN MIND.>>ABSOLUTELY.>>Tucker: YOU WERE PLANNING TO GO TO THIS EVENT LAST NIGHT AND TELL ME IF I AM MISCHARACTERIZING ANY OF THIS.>>NOW ARE NOT.>>Tucker: AT THE REQUEST OF CNN PRODUCER YOU SENT IN A NUMBER OF QUESTIONS QUESTIONS YOU WANTED TO ASK ON THE STAGE AND THEY REWROTE ONE OF YOUR QUESTIONS? IS THAT RIGHT?>>YES, SIR. WHAT HAD HAPPENED WAS FOUR DAYS AGO I HAD GOTTEN CONTACT BY A LADY NAMED CNN. SHE HAD ASKED ME TO WRITE A SPEECH. TOWN HALL. SO I AGREED. I FELT LIKE IT WOULD BE THE RIGHT THING TO DO. BE ABLE TO GO SPEAK MY PART AS WELL AS OPEN EYES TO A FEW THINGS THAT I THOUGHT CAN MAKE THIS SITUATION A LITTLE BETTER. FOR THERE THREE DAYS AGO. I GOUT AN EMAIL BACK FROM HER AND SHE ASKED FOR MORE OF QUESTIONS RATHER THAN A SPEECH. I SPEECH AND QUESTIONS I WANTED TO ASK AT THE TOWN HALL. THE DAY AFTER THAT IT WAS MORE OF JUST QUESTIONS. SHE ASKED FOR JUST QUESTIONS THAT I WOULD LIKE TO ASK. SO, I GAVE HER MY QUESTIONS AND THEN YESTERDAY, AT ABOUT 5:15, I MADE CONTACT WITH HER. AND SHE HAD ASKED IF I HAD JUST ASKED HER ONE QUESTION. SO WHAT THEY HAD ACTUALLY DONE WAS WROTE OUT A QUESTION FOR ME BECAUSE IN MY INTERVIEW WITH CNN, I HAD TALKED ABOUT ARMING THE TEACHERS, IF THEY WERE WILLING TO ARM THEMSELVES IN THE SCHOOL TO CARRY ON CAMPUS. AND THEY HAD — SHE HAD TAKEN THAT OF WHAT I HAD BRIEFED ON AND ACTUALLY WROTE THAT QUESTION OUT FOR ME. SO I HAVE THAT QUESTION HERE IF YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO ASK IT FOR YOU.>>Tucker: I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE I HAVE THIS STRAIGHT. SO YOU SENT THEM A LONG, IN EFFECT, ESSAY ON WHAT YOU THOUGHT BUT THEY PUT THEIR OWN WORDS IN THE QUESTION AND THEY WEREN’T THE SAME AS THE WORDS YOU HAD SENT IN? THEY WERE THE PRODUCER’S WORDS?>>ABSOLUTELY. THEY HAD TAKEN WHAT I HAD WROTE AND WHAT I HAD BRIEFED ON AND TALKED ABOUT AND THEY ACTUALLY WROTE THE QUESTION FOR ME BUT NOT WITH THEIR WORDS EVEN AFTER THEY ASKED TO YOU SEND IN QUESTIONS.>>ABSOLUTELY.>>Tucker: THAT SEEMS DISHONEST.>>IT DEFINITELY DID. THAT’S KIND OF WHY I DIDN’T GO LAST NIGHT. 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. AND SHE HAD ACTUALLY SAID THAT OVER THE PHONE THAT I NEEDED TO STICK TO THE SCRIPT.>>THAT’S REMARKABLE. DID YOU WATCH LAST NIGHT?>>I WATCHED A LITTLE BIT OF IT. I KIND OF FELT LIKE I DIDN’T REALLY NEED TO BECAUSE I KNEW AS SOON AS WHAT HAD HAPPENED WITH ME THAT IT WAS GOING TO BE MORE SCRIPTED AND WASN’T ACTUALLY GOING TO BE ACTUAL QUESTIONS. THEN I DIDN’T FEEL THE NEED TO FULLY WATCH IT.>>Tucker: SO IF CNN WAS WILLING TO REWORD YOUR QUESTION, PUT THEIR OWN WORDS IN YOUR MOUTH AND AS YOU SAID YOU DIDN’T WANT TO GO ALONG WITH THAT DO YOU THINK THEY DID THAT TO OTHER PEOPLE LAST NIGHT?>>ABSOLUTELY, FROM WHAT DID I SEE, I SEEN A COUPLE PEOPLE THAT ASKED QUESTIONS BEFORE DID I LEAVE MY HOUSE. IT WAS A LITTLE PIECE OF PAPER CUT OUT. AND I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT NOBODY CUT THEIR OWN PAPER OUT AND WROTE THEIR OWN QUESTION. ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY WERE ALL BASED OFF THE SAME TOPIC. SO, TO ME, IT FROM RIGHT THERE IT SHOWED THIS ISN’T CORRECT. WHY DO THEY ALL HAVE THE SAME SIZE PIECE OF PAPER WITH A SHORT LITTLE QUESTION ON IT? SO, TO ME IT WAS A TOTAL WASTE OF MY TIME, HONESTLY.>>Tucker: YOU ARE NOT JUST SOME PERSON OFF THE STREET. YOU ARE A SURVIVOR OF THIS SHOOTING. AND THE POINT WAS TO LISTEN TO YOU, TO THE SURVIVORS OF THE SHOOTING. WERE YOU SURPRISED BY THE WAY THEY BEHAVED.>>ABSOLUTELY. I MEAN, HONESTLY IT WAS VERY SHOCKING TO ME. BECAUSE WE JUST WENT THROUGH SUCH A HORRIFIC TRAGEDY FOR THEM TO TAKE THAT AND NOW MAKE SUCH A BIG NEWS OVER WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR. VERY UPSETTING TO ME.>>Tucker: SHOCKING TO US TOO IN THE ACTUAL JOURNALISM

  1. I was hoping that colton was going to get his question out the way he wanted to ask and compare it the way CNN twisted it

  2. The only good thing to be brought to light here is the breadth and width of subversion CNN has committed against the naiive kids and survivors of Stoneman Douglas. And that he has learned not to confide in or trust the media on any level. Sorry Colton, you and your classmates deserve better than to be used as pawns in CNN's political attacks.

  3. CNN doesn't do live Town Halls for a reason… they want you to stick to their propaganda script or they will have to cut you out later. That is all…. stick to the script or they cut out what you said. Remember, CNN is not a news outlet — it is a Democratic-Socialist propaganda outlet where the newscasters are political operatives!!!

  4. Cmon tucker you sound like an idiot saying that CNN would might be dishonest. Don’t patronize this brave young man.

  5. "It's shocking to us to in the actual journalism business." hahahahahahahahahaha . yeah right, faux news . Why didn't we get to hear the "scripted" question? Because there was actually nothing wrong with it? Go ahead, arm the teachers, see how that works out for you.

  6. Here you have a young man who is a survivor of a horrific event who is asked to make a statement that gets changed to a list of questions that gets changed to a single scripted question and you interview him and the focus is on CNN and the scripted question they decided he should ask. You had an opportunity to allow this young man to share his speech or his list of questions. You had an opportunity to allow a young man to share his personal insights and perhaps, in that, find some measure of reconciliation towards an unimaginable senseless rampage. One facet of dealing with evil is trying to work good through it. He wanted to share a message, he wants to be a part of the conversation to help guide change. He also wanted to read the question to you that was scripted. All you did was dominate and redirect your question to put the emphasis on CNN. This interview should have been completely about this young man and what he went through and what his thoughts concerning change should be. In this instance, you insulted him just as badly as CNN. If CNN wouldn't let him speak, you should have. A missed opportunity for you and sadly, for him.

  7. They're using this poor kid as bait and wanted him to say what they want the people to here just so they can continue with their gun control and disarm the United States And I am so happy that this survivor kid stood up to them

  8. I took a lot of the trash talking about CNN with a grain of salt, but this young man's very genuine seeming account confirms for me that well, "CNN is fake news."

  9. And the officials on stage weren't aware it was all scripted and what the questions were going to be? Fire all of them.

  10. CNN is a despicable network. Time and time again they have been found lacking. Lacking in truth. Lacking in morals. Decency. Fact checking. Lacking good journalists with even a tiny bit of steel in their spines. They can't even be a base model human . They are all lemons. Every. Single. One.

  11. Colton REALLY needs to make a video telling us all just EXACTLY what the question was and why. The fact that CNN is full of liars is not new news to me. Have you SEEN their ratings of late? I mean more people have seen UHF with Weird Al than watch CNN. And I am pretty proud of us all for achieving that. Let's just hope that CNN goes down the drain sooooo far that they just disappear. Like a 103 degree oily and wet turd being swallowed up by a toilet bowl. Flush the swamp. Trump 2020.

  12. Liberals are the modern day version of Nero. They would rather sit in a ivory tower playing with unicorns while America burns.

  13. Fake news media is the enemy of the people…gee who said that?? Absolute truth.
    Thank you Fox for being a real media outlet but please dig deeper into the stories.. it's deeper than u can imagine.
    Look into CPS for one and MK ultra programs…

  14. Wow. President is soooo on. With the media. Sooo bad America. Vote this president in for the next 20 years :). to clean up the messes. 🙏🏻

  15. Kind a figured they had been doing this kind of stuff all along. Especially when kids asks “their own” questions and stumble on a pronunciation of a word that supposedly they wrote themselves. Yeah, right !!!

  16. Most likely Eric Holder and the Liberals in the federal government are ordering these shootings. They have motive.

  17. But a lot of people 😡 believe CNN,it's unbelievable,they don't get other news unless it's on Facebook, another liberal garbage

  18. Maybe he had a long winded question? Maybe they just condensed his question? This kid doesn’t seem too bright when she asked him for questions not essays 3 times.

  19. So tragic – god bless that child for his character and strength to have gone thru all he has endured. God bless you child.

  20. The rabid radicalized stupids socialists democrats & fake news were pushing this survivor teenager to keep "scripted" to the questions. Very dishonest!

  21. CNN…MSNBC…do not watch. Fake news. Their ratings are terrible.. their news is not factual. This kid here exposes it.

  22. I get you've got time constraints….but if your gonna have a show on the survivors of a horrific event, isn't that the point is to let them give a personal description of what happened? And maybe let them give a first hand opinion on what they think could have an impact on what went on?
    Ya…we citizens hear stories like this and start to realize the amount of scripted propaganda we're being fed on a regular basis and are calling this crap fake news.

  23. Typical of the Liberals to want to control such events. Many of these shootings, if not all, are orchestrated by the Loonies on the Left that want Gun Control no matter what it takes, or how many die!

  24. CNN & MSNBC are far left liberal activists. How can they be protected under freedom of the press, when they're fake news?

  25. Everything you said up to the 47-second mark what is total emotionless easy to spot jargon just to intended to keep the guy there and talking. It was exactly as I thought it would be. All school shootings are politically staged anyway, just to get attention for gun-control. The guy who made South Park, the last guy you'd ever think. said it, proved it with video evidence. a first-hand witness on several occasions. said he does the job of Crisis acting as much as he can for proof and Leverage. I'm pretty sure you know which News Channel it was because it was caught using the same actor at multiple crisis situations including the Boston Marathon the government blew up. if he wasn't Canadian Jewish the government would have killed him for speaking out by now. It's finally become obvious in everyone's eyes, with the exeption of a simple few, the desperation to unarm us. Even people against guns are talking about it. Our right to bear arms has nothing to do with the government or politicians. It is solely intended for We the People, the citizens of the United States. In fact, by Constitutional law it's absolute for the citizens. Meaning, by constitutional law, government/politicians can't interfere whatsoever with that right, Although they do, they can't even write policy about it because technically it's instantly void. The only lawful interference being having violated a constitutional law. Regardless. The fact that we are so intentionally and easily devided is absurd. Are we all really so self absorbed we can't get along at all? I dont get along with quite a few of my neighbors but if were in need or trouble, I'd be right there. The manner we're swayed to treat each other is madness. It took over 40 years to understand this, I'm done with the agenda. I don't hate my peers. I used to think as humans, we desire conflict. I was very wrong, a majority of the thought was instilled like a program and just as easily undone.. I wish it were the same for skinny jeans and the "safe space" society. The men from the days of ww2 are gone and those who want to keep us devided know it.

  26. hello' Tucker your word ab OK it C.N.N they Sim dishonest! why don't we alreadyknow that? big layers the youngan sure never give them a interview good a list that is put a effort to tell the true to the people's,

  27. That's not even what he said. He said he had an essay and they broke it down to questions. Then they took his questions and broke that down to one and phrased it from the others for him. So we need to see his questions and compare.
