A student named Colton Haab, a member of the JROTC who shielded classmates from the gunman last week in Parkland, Florida, told a local news crew that he didn’t attend CNN’s event last night because they scripted their event, not allowing him to ask the question he wanted to ask about allowing veterans to be security guards at schools:

Wow. That’s a pretty big charge against CNN, so big that CNN has already responded to his claims:

Not knowing Haab personally, I don’t know if he’s telling the truth or not. He does seems pretty genuine though and he is described as a hero from last week.
