CNN just released a 2-part “exclusive” on potential disaster about to befall Alaska: Trump’s EPA appointee, Scott Pruitt, will let a mining company destroy pristine Bristol Bay.
Stossel would have believed CNN’s report, except he had reported on that mine before, in one of his Fox News specials.
CNN implies that right after a secret meeting took place between the new head of the EPA and the CEO of “Pebble Mining” (Tom Collier), he approved a mine that was previously shut down by the Obama administration for being too destructive.
In fact, Obama’s EPA’s rejected the Pebble Mine, BEFORE it even saw an environmental impact statement.
All Pruitt did, was allow the normal review process to go forward.
CNN made that look like a scandal. Stossel says the real scandal is CNN’s smear.
