CBS Edits Out Their Own Reporter Blasting Pandemic Response for Hurting Kids

Crawford’s comments on Sunday’s Face the Nation went viral on social media, but CBS removed them from the actual show when it aired.

When asked what stories she thought the media did not cover properly in 2021, Crawford did not hold back.

“It’s the crushing impact that our COVID policies have had on young kids and children. By far the least serious risk for serious illness,” she said, adding “a healthy teenager has a one in a million chance of getting, and dying from COVID, which is way lower than, you know, dying in a car wreck on a road trip.”

“But they have suffered and sacrificed the most, especially kids and underrepresented at-risk communities. And now we have the Surgeon General saying there’s a mental health crisis among our kids,” Crawford continued. “The risk of suicide girl suicide attempts among girls now up 51 percent this year, black kids nearly twice as likely as white kids to die by suicide. I mean, school closures, lockdowns, cancellation of sports.”

Newsbusters, who first noticed the censorship, reported “CBS axed Crawford’s comments seconds before they would have aired. As you can see in the transcript and video of how the show aired (links above), White House correspondent Weijia Jiang said “we’ll see” about what happens with Congress in 2022 and Crawford was then set to follow, but Brennan instead went to a commercial break.”
