  • The family of Colton Haab, a student at the Florida high school where a gunman killed 17 people last week, provided a doctored email between Haab’s father, Glenn Haab, and a CNN producer to media outlets. 
  • Colton told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Thursday that a CNN producer rewrote a question for Haab to ask at the network’s town hall-style event on Wednesday. 
  • President Donald Trump tweeted about the interview on Thursday night, calling CNN “fake news.”
  • CNN denies Haab’s claims and said, “It is unfortunate that an effort to discredit CNN and the town hall with doctored emails has taken any attention away from the purpose of the event.”

The family of Colton Haab, a student at the Florida high school where a gunman killed 17 people last week, provided a doctored email to media outlets in order to defend Haab’s claims that CNN rewrote a question for him to ask at the network’s Wednesday town-hall-style event on school shootings.
