When CBS legal correspondent Jan Crawford was asked on “Face the Nation,” what was the most underreported story of 2021, she responded by taking to task politicians and public health experts for “the crushing impact that our COVID policies have had on young kids and children.”

She wasn’t finished:
“A healthy teenager has a one in a million chance of getting, and dying from COVID, which is way lower than dying in a car wreck on a road trip…. But they have suffered and sacrificed the most, especially kids and underrepresented at risk communities. You couldn’t even go on a playground in the D.C. area without cops…. shooing the kids off. Tremendous negative impact on kids, and it’s been an afterthought…And that, to me, is the greatest underreported story of the past year.”
CBS did distribute Crawford’s comments on its Facebook and Twitter pages and with a YouTube video. But her comments were purged from the Sunday morning because the pretape “ran long.”
And if you believe that, you probably think that Biden’s Build Back Better pays for itself.
