[See NewsBusters for more.] According to The Cross Connection with Tiffany Cross's namesake host, Critical Race Theory is just the latest culture war boogeyman conservatives are using in their attempt to "whitewash" America. Yet, she also maintained on her Saturday show that CRT is necessary in order to explain why 1619 Project creator Nikole Hannah-Jones was initially denied tenure at the University of North Carolina.

Cross came out of commercial break playing a clip of Sen. Tom Cotton saying that CRT should not be taught in the service academies after an Air Force Academy professor wrote a Washington Post op-ed claiming it was necessary to teach cadets about racism and its history.
