In a rare break from liberal Hollywood groupthink, SEAL Team star David Boreanaz has slammed CNN for its coverage of the global coronavirus pandemic, suggesting that the cable news network is trafficking in fear.

David Boreanaz tweeted out his disdain for CNN on Sunday. “Fear kills the immune system. Watching @cnn will distroy [sic] you,” the actor wrote.

Boreanaz currently stars in CBS’ SEAL Team playing the leader of Bravo Team, a sub-unit of SEAL Team Six, as it engages in high-risk missions throughout the world. The dramatic series is in its third season.

The actor announced last week that the network has suspended production on the series due to the coronavirus.

Prior to SEAL Team, Boreanaz starred in Fox’s hit forensic series Bones for 12 seasons. He also starred in the WB series Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

While his political affiliations remain unclear, Boreanaz has suggested in the past that he is no fan of Hillary Clinton.
