On Sunday’s Inside Politics with Abby Phillip, host Abby Phillip collaborated with former president of Planned Parenthood, former Baltimore health commissioner, and medical analyst Leana Wen to fearmonger about schools reopening. Ignoring all available scientific data, Phillip worried that the CDC’s current guidelines for reopening schools are not stringent enough to allow schools to “actually meet” and Wen proclaimed that “teacher vaccinations are essential if we want students to be in school for in-person learning.”
Phillip began the segment by uncritically playing a clip where President Biden lied about American having “no plan to vaccinate most of the country” before he took office.

The media mocked Donald Trump for saying that we would even have a vaccine by the end of 2020 so it’s ironic that the media is still trashing the former president’s vaccine rollout plan.
Phillip combined with Wen, who is the former head of Planned Parenthood, a fact that CNN bizarrely hides whenever she comes on air, to scaremonger about the new variants of COVID. Wen even admitted that lockdowns have not been successful, but advocated for them anyways:
PHILLIP: We’re also hearing that these more contagious variants may also be more lethal and spreading fast in the U.S. Can we actually stay ahead of that trend?
WEN: I’m also very worried about these variants because we have seen in other countries what happens when there is explosive spread of these more contagious variants that despite lockdowns there has been overwhelmed hospitals and other surges that we have actually seen before, but it could happen here again. And so, I think it’s really critical for us to ramp up vaccinations as much as we can and in the meantime do our best to continue with masking, physical distancing, these other measures that we know to be really important in controlling the spread of infection.
Wen should listen to the science and mention the negative health effects of lockdowns, which have caused millions of people to miss out on cancer screening and treatment, 130 million people to be on the brink of starvation worldwide, 1.2 million preventable child deaths, 93,000 excess deaths due to missed medical care, and 75,000 extra deaths of despair. She also seems to have missed that Anthony Fauci has said that the vaccine works on the new variants.
Phillip and Wen continued to completely ignore the science by claiming that the CDC’s plan to open schools is not sufficient:
PHILLIP: But not on that list is universal vaccinations for teachers and staff or regular required testing. You know, Dr. Wen, you’ve weighed in on this issue and have some pretty specific criticisms for what is missing in the guidelines, but there’s also this element of it that is about the transmission rates. Where do you think the guidelines are right now in terms of whether they have put enough out there that schools can actually meet it or do you think that they have kind of lowered the bar here for what schools need to do to get reopened as quickly as possible?
WEN: So I think that the guidelines are good and problematic at the same time. Where it’s good is specifically defining what are the levels of transmission at which different mitigation measures need to be put in place. That kind of specific guidance is really important for schools and I think it’s time for us to have a national strategy. So I think that part is good. Where it, I think, has some concerns for me is, first of all, in areas of low and moderate transmission. The CDC is not requiring six feet distance which is very concerning.
Never mind many studies have stated that we can reopen schools safely and that the schools that have reopened have done so safely. Wen also seems to have ignored that 172 studies from 16 different countries have found that “six of feet distancing” is not needed for children in school.
