  • CBS News’ ‘60 Minutes’ With Scott Pelley Slammed For Making Numerous False, Misleading Claims On COVID-19

    Top government officials slammed CBS News’ “60 Minutes” after co-host Scott Pelley ran a segment on Sunday night that contained false and misleading claims on certain aspects of the Trump administration’s response to the pandemic, which originated in Wuhan, China. The segment begins by falsely suggesting that the United States federal government has “been less than honest” about the coronavirus pandemic just like the Chinese Communist Party. Some of the actions taken by the Chinese communist government to hide the truth about the coronavirus pandemic that started in their country include: Some of the actions taken by the Chinese communist...

    60 Minutes corespondent Scott Pelley says he was let go as host of the CBS Evening News because he spoke up to his bosses about the “hostile” workplace within the network’s news division. In an interview with CNN’s Brian Stelter on Sunday’s Reliable Sources, Pelley explains, “We’ve been through a dark period of the last several years of incompetent management and sort of a hostile work environment within the news division. I lost my job at the evening news because I wouldn’t stop complaining to management about the hostile work environment.” Pelley — who served as anchor of the CBS...

    That would be Scott Pelley. He is simply the worst hack in an anchor position on a network new show today. Recently he, as did that fruitcake Joy Reid,  suggested that Steve Scalise is in part to blame for his own shooting. It's time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress, yesterday, was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted.Too many leaders, and political commentators, who set an example for us to follow, have led us into an abyss of violent rhetoric which, it should be no surprise, has led to violence.Yesterday was not the first time.In...

    Thursday evening, CBS's Scott Pelley, who officially ended his tenure as the network's Evening News anchor the following evening, told viewers that "It's time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress Wednesday was foreseeable, predictable and, to some degree, self-inflicted." It's clear from Pelley's subsequent commentary that his answers to all three elements are "Yes." It's equally clear from the examples he supplied as support that he sees (or wants viewers to see) the problem as predominantly about the conduct of those on the right.

    Scott Pelley is out at “CBS Evening News,” Page Six has exclusively learned. Sources tell us that ‘Poison Pelley’s’ office was being cleared out on Tuesday while the anchor was away on an assignment for the network’s news magazine “60 Minutes.” Insiders tell us that CBS News president David Rhodes “is making [Pelley] move to ‘60 Minutes,’ ” and that the pair “don’t get on.” Another TV insider said while Pelley’s ratings have been down, “There’s also been friction between him and [Rhodes].”

    "It has been a busy day for presidential statements divorced from reality." Anchor Scott Pelley greeted "CBS Evening News" viewers with that line Monday night. Pelley opened the show standing in front of a photo of President Trump which bore the words "Reality Check." "Today, President Trump told a U.S. military audience that there have been terrorist attacks that one knows about because the media choose not to report them," said Pelley. Trump told military leaders at CENTCOM Monday that terror attacks are being under-reported by the media.

    ("CBS Evening News" anchor Scott Pelley.CBS) CBS News anchor Scott Pelley threw shade at President Donald Trump on Monday night, following a day of head-scratching comments from the president and his team. "It has been a busy day for presidential statements divorced from reality," Pelley said on Monday's edition of "CBS Evening News."

    Michael Warren at The Weekly Standard notes that somehow, the staff at CBS News doesn’t have a nose for news. The hottest breaking story – the Wikileaks posting of DNC e-mails proving they were tilted toward Mrs. Clinton and plotting to damage the Sanders campaign – got left on the cutting room floor Sunday night. Does anyone believe that CBS News isn't capable of realizing this e-mail portion of Scott Pelley's interview was the hottest, and editing it in instead of out? It almost makes one wonder if CBS felt they had to clear it with the DNC or the...

    Donald Trump is firing salvo after salvo tonight on 60 Minutes. He's winning the arguments in a hostile, communist environment. The unhinged far-left interviewer, Scott Pelley, may have been born in Texas but he's not a true Texan because he rejected the Conservative Christian (and Jewish) values of the Lone Star state. Since Pelley (like Dan Rather, Walter KKKronkite and Egbert R. Murrow) is a limp-wristed metrosexual who hates America, it's great to see him getting TRUMPED! Go Trump go! Attack! Attack! Attack!

    Billed as the Commander in Chief Republican presidential debate, the CBS/National Journal foreign policy debate fell flat. Sitting inside Wofford College’s Friendship Hall, I got to witness the pre-show and commercial break activity the rest of America missed. When CBS anchor Scott Pelley introduced himself to the audience around 7:30pm he came across as a stuck up snob and somehow you knew the show wasn’t going to be great. Talking in a professorial tone, Pelley told the audience if they wanted to take pictures “do it now” so you won’t distract us during the debate with your flashes. National Journal’s...

    I missed tonight’s CBS debate, mainly because I spent a great evening with some of my blogging friends here at FreedomWorks’ BlogCon2011. When I returned, though, I got a few messages about one particular moment in the debate, where CBS moderator attempted to lecture Newt Gingrich on the “rule of law” regarding American citizens who join the enemy to wage war against the US. Big mistake. The two worst aspects of this exchange? The smug look on Pelley’s face when he challenged Gingrich on this point, and the “no” you can hear him utter just as Gingrich started his smackdown...

    When $27 billion is at stake, some companies would pay big bucks to win a PR battle, but one side of an environmental lawsuit doesn't have to, since CBS is pushing its position for free. On CBS's May 3 "60 Minutes," correspondent Scott Pelley, who once compared global-warming skepticism to Holocaust denial, gave the plaintiff of a $27-billion frivolous lawsuit against Chevron a public relations victory with his report. Pelley's report featured a suit filed by the Amazon Defense Coalition, a group described as "eco-radicals," who are trying to squeeze $27 billion from Chevron for environmental cleanup that the nation's...

    When it comes to bailouts of American business, Barney Frank and the Congress may be just getting started. Nearly two trillion tax dollars have been shoveled into the hole that Wall Street dug and people wonder where the bottom is. As correspondent Scott Pelley reports, it turns out the abyss is deeper than most people think because there is a second mortgage shock heading for the economy. In the executive suites of Wall Street and Washington, you're beginning to hear alarm about a new wave of mortgages with strange names that are about to become all too familiar. If you...

    (CBS) Both presidential candidates agree the nation is in a recession. Democratic Sen. Barack Obama and Republican Sen. John McCain, appearing in separate interviews for a special 40th anniversary edition of 60 Minutes, say the economic term applies to the current troubles and lay out their plans to solve the situation if they are elected. Their interviews will be broadcast this Sunday, Sept. 21, at 7 p.m. ET/PT. "Oh, I think there's no doubt that…when the numbers come out, that we are officially in recession," Obama tells Steve Kroft. "I think, for a lot of people, they've been feeling like...

    (CBS) A German resident held by the U.S. for almost five years tells 60 Minutes correspondent Scott Pelley that Americans tortured him in many ways - including hanging him from the ceiling for five days early in his captivity when he was in Kandahar, Afghanistan. Even after determining he was not a terrorist, Murat Kurnaz says the torture continued. Kurnaz tells his story for the first time on American television this Sunday, March 30, at 7 p.m. ET/PT. Kurnaz, an ethnic Turk born and raised in Germany, went to Pakistan in late 2001 at age 19 to study Islam and...

    Hawking his new book, At the Eye of the Storm, former CIA Director George Tenet bared his soul Sunday night to Scott Pelley of the CBS news magazine, 60 Minutes. Some preliminary thoughts about his jaw-dropping performance are in order. 1. Tenet met every morning with President Bush. Indeed, he was the point person at the national-security briefing — the daily session Bush, from the beginning of his presidency, has made a point of taking more seriously than his predecessor did. Tenet now claims that in the summer of 2001, he was convinced al Qaeda was on the verge of...

    Who Will Replace Dan Rather? No Decision Has Been Made Nov 24, 2004 11:18 am US/Central NEW YORK (CBS) With Dan Rather's announcement that he will step down as anchor and managing editor of the CBS Evening News in March, speculation is on about who will next occupy one of the most visible chairs in American journalism. CBS News President Andrew Heyward and CBS Chairman Leslie Moonves have both indicated that potential candidates inside and outside CBS will get a look before a final decision is made. Moonves told The Wall Street Journal, "We're still contemplating a lot of people...
