A few days ago, it was reported widely on right-wing sites — and trended high on Twitter — that Parkland shooting survivor Colton Haab had declined to take part in a CNN special about guns because the network had allegedly scripted a question that the boy did not want to ask. Instead, he had wanted to ask about arming teachers.
Or so his father, Glenn Haab, claimed.
Now, according to TampaBay.com, that story has been totally debunked, and the father is to blame. It appears the elder Haab doctored CNN's emails, presenting them to right-wing sites. He now admits the emails were not accurate, but — laughably — claims they were not doctored purposefully.
