Skip to comments.CBS's Scott Pelley Loses a Fight Rigged in His Favor

Scott Pelley, host of CBS News 60 Minutes, embarrassed himself in a Sunday segment about fake news despite having the final cut on a hostile interview with a right-wing activist. Mike Cernovich a lawyer, independent blogger/author/filmmaker, and a dominant voice on Twitter built up significant buzz for 60 Minutes by revealing on Thursday he had granted Pelley a sit-down interview. In the hours before the live broadcast, Cernovich anticipated that the 45-minute conversation would be selectively edited and pre-emptively published a partial transcript.
That concern is based on a long history of network news programs using misleading or downright comical editing to put conservatives in the worst possible light. As the segment aired, Pelleys opening statement made it clear this story was a smear job:
In this last election, the nation was assaulted by impostors masquerading as reporters. They poisoned the conversation with lies on the left and on the right. Many did it to influence the outcome others just to make a buck. The president uses the term fake news to discredit responsible reporting that he doesnt like. But were going to show you how con artists insert truly fake news into the national conversation with fraudulent software that scams your social media account. The stories are fake, but the consequences are real. [emphasis added]

Scott Pelley is an idiot. I expect much better from a west texas boy. He is a disgrace to Lubbock, TX.....red
Man, CBS is just the bottom of the barrel.
I am amazed. This ABCNNBCBS reporter actually used the term “the president” !
CBS, I believe it was CBS who fabricated a protest demonstration of children in Mississippi during the lead up to the Civil Riches Act of 1964. Photos were taken by LE and given to Congress critters of the network paying the kids. The demonstration appeared on morning news the next day.
I also believe they are the ones who fabricated a protest in Vietnam and showed on American news.
a very dishonest bunch of people.
Scott Pelley is an asshat. Every night the first 10 minutes of his “show” is nothing but anti-Trump propaganda, without fail. Had to quit watching a few weeks ago.
The boy’s about as sharp as a bowlin’ ball.
Scott Pelley = Niles Crane
Pelley got punched in the face.
Worse than Hillary Clinton? Hillary could lose to a one-armed basketball team with the refs on her payroll.
So did Bill Clinton’s wife.
95% plus of the Mainstream Media is composed of so called Journalists who identify as either Democrats or Liberals.
If the opposite were true and 95% plus of those same so called Journalists identified as Conservatives and Republicans, the Liberals would go ballistic.
Difference is, our side argues Facts while their side calls our side Nazis, Homophobes, Racists or whatever derogatory word pops into their heads. The don’t “do” Truth.
The great thing about this was Mike Cernovich.
He pegged Pelly and the Fake MSM to the ground over and over again. So worth a read.
He was invited to an interview and said he'd be interested. They told him it would take an hour. He asked them how long the segment was going to be, and they said it would be 15 minutes long. "Then I'll give you 15 minutes," he said, knowing damn well that the biased U.S. media would edit the interview extensively to further their own agenda.
I think they did the entire interview in 15 minutes.
It's his diet of emissions from the posterior of 0bama.
Catastrophic loss of brain cells.
Few weeks ago? I haven't watched network news since the early 90s, and I was in my early 20s then. I was more concerned about chicks and beer than whatever vomit Dan Rather was spewing up.
Known in my circles as Pompous Pelley.
