Jesse Watters Ends Show With a Very Brief Correction of CNN ‘Scripted’ Question Claim

At the end of Saturday night’s Watters World, Jesse Watters very briefly issued a slight correction on the CNN “scripted” question controversy.

The father of one of the Parkland students admitted to omitting some words from an email exchange between their family and a CNN producer, and both Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity subsequently issued their corrections.

Watters last night ended his show by saying this:

“Last week we told you about reports CNN may have scripted questions for a town hall. The father of one of the students making that accusation has since said he accidentally removed a line from the CNN emails. Some say they may have changed its meaning. Just wanted to let you know.”

One week prior, as CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski noted this morning, Watters read CNN’s denial on-air and then said it was “kind of hard to believe when they were caught feeding Hillary questions.”

He and Ann Coulter shared a laugh over the “bad week” CNN was having.
