CNN continued to reach new lows this week after the network’s anchor expressed her disappointment that an alleged hate crime at the United States Air Force Academy turned out to be a hoax, suggesting it was “unfortunate” that cadets weren’t actually racist.

The cable news network’s Brooke Baldwin made the shocking comments while discussing recent revelations that a racist slur scrawled on the dorm rooms of five African American students was actually written by one of the cadets.

“A stunning update today on a story we covered in late September,” said Baldwin. “After a month’s long investigation, officials at the school now say this was all a hoax perpetrated by one of the black students.”

The CNN host went on to discuss the immense media backlash against the incident, prompting strong rebuttals from Joe Biden, John McCain, and the Air Force itself.

“It’s just unfortunate to learn who wrote it,” she added.
