From the great minds that brought you COVID discussions with Al Gore, Greta Thunberg and Spike Lee, CNN is set to host their latest town hall on racism, a joint event hosted by the news network and…

…Sesame Street.

As in, Big Bird and Elmo.

The cable news network, which at some point decided it was no longer an outlet for objective journalism but rather the arbiters of morality and social justice, is partnering with the children’s puppet show to help teach kids about equality. The 60-minute program, set to air this Saturday, “will talk to kids about racism, the recent nationwide protests, embracing diversity and being more empathetic and understanding,” CNN states.

CNN host Van Jones, who said on live television this week that white people have a “virus” in their brain that triggers inherent racism, will join Big Bird and Elmo to answer the public’s questions on racism and help parents explain inequality to their kids.
