Nets Censor CRT in January as ‘Privilege Bingo’ Proves It IS in Schools

The networks stopped airing Critical Race Theory in Schools on January 1. No network show mentioned it’s importance in education on either its morning or evening programs.

You are mistaken if you believe that CRT has vanished. For much of last year, especially as Virginia prepared for a governor’s election with CRT being a focal point, ABC, CBS and NBC repeatedly told us that it was “not taught in schools.” 

But January brought us “Privilege Bingo.” That’s right, Fairfax County, Virginia public schools apologized after students were forced to play this vile game in order to “identify your privilege.” The twisted version of Bingo included “white,” “male,” “Christian,” “cisgender.” In a new low, it also had a space marked “military kid.” 

It’s on Fox News PrimetimeJoe Mobley, a veteran and angry parent responded by saying: 



For most of my children’s lives, they never saw a family member who wasn’t their parent on a birthday, Christmas or Thanksgiving. We lived more than 1,500 miles away from our nearest relatives. It is unacceptable to point out that their military families are considered privileged. It’s completely offensive and out of control. This is just one indicator that leadership needs to be changed in these schools.

On January 19, Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Pat Herrity tweeted an image of “Privilege Bingo.” 



Total coverage for “military kid” privilege bingo? To learn Critical Race Theory at schools in the network’s January classrooms?It takes 0 minutes to complete the task. (The exception to this rule was made on January 30, 2010 CBS Sunday Morning where reporter David Pogue talked to lawyer Bryan Stevenson about his work to exonerate the wrongly accused. Pogue began, “You might have heard this term ‘critical race theory.’” But this segment had nothing to do with CRT in schools.) 

Yet, in the fall of 2021, the media repeatedly, and falsely, told us that CRT isn’t taught in schools. MSNBC host Ali Velshi called it a “new dog whistle except you can hear it.” Talking about the Virginia governor’s race, CBS Mornings Host Nate Burleson mislead, “The curriculum is not taught in Virginia schools.” Take Action Today show reporters lectured that “it is not taught in any Virginia high school.” 

Clearly, the journalists at NBC haven’t played “Privilege Bingo.” Here’s a montage of lies by MRC media editor Bill D’Agostino. 



Fox News pointed out in October by Fox News, “A presentation on the [Virginia Department of Education]Site launched in 2015. [Terry] McAullife was governor, encouraged teachers to ‘embrace Critical Race Theory’ as part of its “Culturally-Responsive Teaching.” 

Only Fox News reported Georgia news in February: 

Gwinnett County, home to the largest school district in Georgia, is facing harsh criticism after posting and then removing from the district’s website A controversial syllabus stated that AP classes would teach Marxism and critical race theory.The school district claims that this syllabus was not used in classes. However, parents are concerned about the content of the lessons their children receive. 

In schools, Critical Race Theory is being taught. Last year, the networks lied to you and they are now silent when the truth is revealed. We may not have needed “Privilege Bingo” to disprove the media’s lies about CRT, but it sure underlines the point: There’s nothing corrupt journalists won’t do in order to protect CRT. This February, ABC, CBS and NBC have a responsibility to admit the truth to their viewers.
