Accuracy in Media

Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican U.S. Senator, must’ve had a good time with this statement on the pork ban in U.S. prisons:

After the bureau drew complaints from the American pork industry and most recently from Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley for the ban, the senator’s office tells that the bureau informed them they’re backing off the decision and returning pork to the menu.

Grassley issued a statement later Friday afternoon praising the move while saying he still has concerns: “The decision by the Bureau of Prisons to completely remove pork from its menus was ham-handed at best. I appreciate the quick decision after my letter to the bureau to keep pork products on prison menus. …  But, there are still questions about how the original determination was made and the cost of conducting the surveys.”
