Stossel—Baby Salmon Threatened?: New at Reason

CNN just released a two-part "exclusive" on the potential disaster about to befall Alaska: EPA Chief Scott Pruitt is planning to let a mining company destroy pristine Bristol Bay.

The network repoted that after a secret meeting took place between Pruitt and Pebble Mining CEO Tom Collier, the agency approved a mine that previously had been rejected by the Obama administration for being too destructive.

In fact, Obama's EPA denied the application to build Pebble Mine before it even saw an environmental impact statement. Pruitt is simply allowing the normal review process to move forward.

CNN made that look like a scandal. The real scandal is CNN's smear.
