CBS Pundit: Kids Will Be Scarred by Biden’s ‘Crushing’ COVID Policies

'You know, 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...'

The most underreported story of 2021 was “the crushing impact that our COVID policies have had on young kids and children,” according to CBS News correspondent Jan Crawford.

Crawford appeared on Face the Nation on Sunday and argued that the “school closures, lockdowns, cancellation of sports” have had a “tremendous negative impact on kids.”

“You know, 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,” Crawford said. “But they have suffered and sacrificed the most, especially kids and underrepresented at risk communities.”

“And now we have the Surgeon General saying there’s a mental health crisis among our kids,” Crawford continued. “The risk of suicide girl suicide attempts among girls now up 51% this year, black kids nearly twice as likely as white kids to die by suicide.”

“If our policies don’t reflect a more measured and reasonable approach for our children, they will be paying for our generation’s decisions the rest of their lives,” Crawford concluded.

With President Joe Biden despairing of a “federal solution” to COVID and the CDC shortening quarantine periods, it has now become fashionable to notice the impact that COVID policies have had on children.

The New York Times, for example, reported on Dec. 24 that “teenagers arguably bore the social and emotional brunt of school disruptions.”

There remains a remarkable lack of interest, however, in holding the federal government accountable for its unscientific and destructive policies. A search of the Times article for the names “Biden” or “Fauci” turned up exactly zero hits.

The quest for accountability is left to the likes of Fox News and New York Post, which reported on Dec. 26 that the White House “consulted national teachers unions before releasing school reopening guidance to the public,” and “put a heavy thumb on the scales in favor of the unions’ agenda.”
