Wednesday, it was cheering on College Board. Thursday, it was being painstakingly vague with reparations advocate Ta-Nehisi Coates. And on Friday, CBS Mornings again raced to the defense of woke educators as they rhetorically knelt at the altar of Nikole Hannah-Jones and marveled at her “knockout docuseries” bringing to life The 1619 Project’s “re-examin[ation of] American slavery and its impact on the systems and the policies that still shape our country today.”

CBS made no attempt to even footnote the criticism and voluminous fact-checks of Hannah-Jones’s work, including her shoddy ethics (as well as those of The Times) and that her thesis of American Revolution being waged to uphold and preserve slavery is totally false.
