Texas Republican slams CNN for its biased view of critical race theory in heated exchange with anchor over his bill to ban it from schools

  • Republican State Rep. Steve Toth slammed CNN on Tuesday, claiming the network is 'biased' toward critical race theory
  • Toth appeared on the network to discuss a bill he introduced that would keep the theory out of curriculum at Texas public schools
  • In an CNN interview Tuesday, host Victor Blackwell questioned him about the bill, which says a teacher cannot be 'compelled' to discuss an issue
  • Blackwell asked Toth how teachers would be able to discuss current events like the January 6 Capitol riots under the bill
  • Toth replied that teachers could discuss these issues from a 'diverse' perspective, 'but that's not good enough' for CNN
  • He defended the bill, which is currently waiting the governor's signature, saying Dr Martin Luther King would support it

Republican State Rep Steve Toth appeared on the network on Tuesday to discuss a bill he introduced last month that would limit discussions of the theory in Texas public schools.

Instead, the bill would require teachers who talk about race relations and how they shaped history to look at viewpoints 'from diverse and contending perspectives without giving deference to any one perspective.'

It has already passed both chambers of the Texas legislative branch, and is headed to Governor Greg Abbott's desk for his signature.
