Did you happen to catch CNN's latest smear?
Anderson Cooper's show recently featured a "two-part exclusive" that claims Donald Trump's EPA director had conspired with the CEO of a mining company to "withdraw environmental restrictions" so the company could dig "the largest open pit Mine in the world in an extremely sensitive watershed in wild Alaska."
The report was enough to horrify any caring person. CNN showed beautiful pictures of colorful salmon swimming in Bristol Bay, and the reporter intoned dramatically, "EPA staffers were shocked to receive this email obtained exclusively by CNN which says 'we have been directed by the administrator to withdraw restrictions'... Protection of that pristine area was being removed."
No! A "pristine" area and gorgeous salmon were about to be obliterated by a mine!
I would have believed it, except I happened to report on that mine a couple years ago.
