Father of Parkland survivor admits to altering CNN email exchange
Glenn Haab, the father of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School junior Colton Haab, “acknowledges omitting some words from the email but says he didn’t do it on purpose,” the Associated Press reported.
CNN had previously said Glenn Haab doctored emails to push a claim that the network provided “scripted” questions for his son to read at CNN’s town hall debate on guns and school safety on Feb. 21. Haab declined to allow his son to participate in the town hall.
To prove it hadn’t told Colton Haab what to say at the televised debate, CNN released an email exchange between a network producer and Glenn Haab. After he sent a long speech, CNN asked that Colton Haab only ask a question “that he submitted” due to time constraints.
When he sent the correspondence to other outlets, Glenn Haab had omitted the phrase “that he submitted.”
The family of a Parkland shooting survivor appears to have provided doctored emails to Fox and HuffPost in an attempt to support their claim that CNN "scripted" its Wednesday town hall. https://t.co/AdiXw2lmRz pic.twitter.com/3O5EneClcK
