Forget Tomatoes, CNN Warns of Attack of the 'Killer Stoves'

"There is a danger lurking in millions of kitchens," warned CNN anchor Kiran Chetry on the April 6 "American Morning."

That danger? Stoves that can tip over and injure you.

But instead of simply educating viewers and telling them about the 50-cent anti-tip bracket that can prevent stoves from tipping over, reporter Greg Hunter promoted more nanny-state nonsense.

"Manufacturers and the government recommend all stoves be bolted down, but it's not mandatory," said Hunter before quoting someone from the left-wing group Public Citizen.

Public Citizen's, Joan Claybrook called them "killer stoves," and attributed 26 deaths and "almost a hundred injuries" to falling stoves.
