The iconic CBS Sunday morning news show “Face the Nation” edited out a network correspondent’s passionate criticism of COVID-19 policies for the harm they have caused children and teenagers who have a minuscule chance of suffering serious illness or death from the disease.

Newsbusters reported the remarks of CBS correspondent Jan Crawford were axed seconds before they would have aired Sunday.
“Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan, in a special year-end show with a reporter roundtable, pivoted the discussion, saying, Well, I want to get to underreported stories as well, Jan?”
Crawford immediately responded, saying her to underreported story centered on an issue “my kids hear me rant about … every day, so I might as well tell you guys.””
“It’s the crushing impact that our COVID policies have had on young kids and children,” she said.
Crawford argued that COVID-19 is “by far the least serious risk for serious illness” for young people. She noted “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.”
In the Washington, D.C., area, she continued, “you couldn’t even go on a playground in the D.C. area without cops scurrying – getting – shooing the kids off.”
“Tremendous negative impact on kids, and it’s been an afterthought.”
She said the “mental health” of children and teens has taken a turn for the worse, with repercussions lasting for “the rest of their lives” if future decisions aren’t “measured and sensible.” She said the damage could worsen on top of the “dreams” crushed, “future learning” stunted, and “risk of abuse” incurred.
Brennan agreed: “Well said and frightening.”
Newsbusters pointed to the video of how the show aired – compared to the full video – to demonstrate that CBS eliminated Crawford’s remarks. Her criticism of COVID polices came after White House correspondent Weijia Jiang said “we’ll see” regarding what will happen with Congress in 2022.
But the show, as it aired, went to a break, and resumed with each reporter offering their 2022 prediction, skipping Crawford’s underreported story.
A list of more than 400 studies shows that COVID-19 lockdowns, shelter-in-place policies, school closures, masks and mask mandates have failed to curb virus transmission or reduce deaths while causing unintended harm.
In an interview with WND earlier this month, Dr. Robert Malone, the vaccine researcher who invented the messenger RNA technology behind the Pfizer and Moderna shots, said “fundamentally evil” COVID policies will cause “deep and profound” damage that “will last for decades.”

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
