THE ANATOMY OF A LIE | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


THE ANATOMY OF A LIE

In an interview on Fox News with Tucker Carlson the day following the town hall, Colton described that Ms. Stevenson, in a series of emails, had advised Colton’s father Glenn Haab to ask Colton to ask more questions instead of a “speech” and instead “stick” to a singular question that according to Colton, would not have been the one question he wanted to ask. Also in the interview, Colton described the pre-written questions on small pieces of paper like the ones Emma Gonzalez stumbled to read from at the town hall as evidence the questions were rehearsed and planned ahead of time. Colton refused to participate in the town hall and immediately people wanted to know why.

We can speculate on the steps and motivation Ms. Stevenson utilized for this process of gathering students and preparing the content and agenda for the town hall. However, when Colton Haab refused to participate in the town hall because he felt his genuine questions were being modified into a singular question that was formulated by CNN; compiling his originally submitted question regarding the arming of teachers with information from an interview he had previously done on the Fox network, little did know he would become the center of a national controversy.
