Immediately, the takeaway for many conservative news outlets and pundits on Fox News appeared to be that CNN tried to alter Haab’s question in an attempt to promote a gun-control agenda, something the emails show didn’t happen.
“Parkland student: CNN gave me ‘scripted’ questions on guns” is the headline the Washington Examiner went with, while the right-wing news website Breitbart published, “Parkland Student’s Father Says CNN Only Interested in ‘Certain Narrative.’” Gateway Pundit, which has been provided White House credentials despite regularly peddling baseless conspiracy theories, used, “CNN Refused to Allow Florida Shooting Hero Colton Haab to Ask Questions at Town Hall That Didn’t Fit Their Narrative.” CNN released the emails after Glenn Haab, Colton Haab’s father, took a doctored set of emails to the Huffington Post and Fox News in an apparent attempt to discredit the network.
Good luck Sean https://t.co/Dj G2flq2A1 — Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) April 23, 2017 Nolan publicly going after Hannity is notable for several reasons, not least of which is the fact the two work for the same parent company, 21st Century Fox.
Nolan deleted a tweet claiming “we don’t work at the same company.” Now that 21st Century Fox has dropped Bill O'Reilly after a scandal involving million in settlements paid to five former Fox News personalities, Hannity is the most important figure at the network.
Five national brands, including Keurig, pulled their ads from Fox's Sean Hannity Show after Hannity interviewed Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore and customers protested how Hannity spoke about the alleged sexual misconduct claims against Moore.

One woman, Leigh Corfman, told The Post that Moore had a sexual encounter with her when she was 14 and he was 32.
Three other women said he dated or asked them out on dates when they were teens and he was in his early 30s. He told Hannity he didn't know Corfman and that he didn't remember "dating any girl without the permission of her mother." Hannity said Moore should be given the benefit of the doubt.
Near the end of his show, Hannity offered a “quick update” to set the record straight, noting, “Our job is always to strive for the truth and we want to correct the record.” The hosts’ comments (and the subsequent criticism of CNN on Fox News and conservative websites throughout the week) were based on statements made by Haab, who declined an invitation to CNN’s town hall and claimed the network was trying to force him to ask a question he didn’t provide himself. It can be fun, terrible, exciting, hard — the adjectives used to describe it are endless.But this guide was created to help you navigate your way through all those adjectives and shed the only light you’ll ever need on an otherwise confusing, strenuous experience.It’s not the first time Carlson has been forced to set the record straight following a mass shooting.Back in October, following the shooting that left 58 people dead in Las Vegas, Carlson issued a correction for promoting the baseless conspiracy that Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos had worked under someone else’s Social Security number.Two popular Fox News hosts finally issued corrections Tuesday night for comments made on their shows last week suggesting CNN was forcing students to ask scripted questions at a town hall that aired following the deadly mass shooting at the high school in Parkland, Fla.First up was Tucker Carlson, who hosted 17-year-old shooting survivor Colton Haab on his show last week.Here's what the Times wrote about Hannity's relationship with Trump: Presidents always deploy surrogates to appear on television to spout their talking points, but Mr. Trump, he urges the president not to get distracted, and advises him to focus on keeping pledges like repealing the Affordable Care Act.Trump has expanded on that by developing relationships with sympathetic media figures like Mr. Unlike Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy, who said he was “honored” to be mentioned as a friend of Trump, Hannity was incensed and jumped on Twitter to blast the New York Times and reporters Maggie Haberman and Glenn Thrush. And how long do you think this "career" in the sports world will last if you keep tweeting like this?CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski praised Carlson for offering a correction on the story, but not without taking a shot at the Fox News host.“I’d also point this information was available to him on Friday, when he attacked CNN for ‘hypocrisy’ but I am glad the record was corrected tonight none the less,” Kaczynski wrote on Twitter.
