ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News appeared to side with Democratic teachers’ unions over kids struggling with learning and suicidal thoughts on Wednesday, after they refused to tell viewers that CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said vaccines were not needed to reopen schools safely. CBS Evening News, on the other hand, did note her comments. Though, they also blindly parroted union platitudes.
“The CDC’s director said today she's also confident that schools can begin to reopen even if teachers aren't fully vaccinated. And that's sparking a firestorm among educators,” announced CBS anchor Norah O’Donnell near the top of the newscast.
Noting that “pressure is building to reopen schools,” correspondent Meg Oliver reported how some cities were forced to take their own school boards to court in order to get students the education and settings they needed to healthy.
