  • 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...

    Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. today filed a lawsuit against WJFW-NBC of Rhinelander, WI for defamation in the wake of an advertisement carried by the station that contained intentionally false and defamatory statements about President Trump. The ad produced by Priorities USA, a super PAC supporting Joe Biden’s candidacy, and broadcast by WJFW-NBC, used digitally manipulated clips of President Trump’s voice to fabricate unsubstantiated meaning in the President’s words. The suit, filed in Price County, WI circuit court, followed a cease-and-desist letter and supporting documentation sent on March 25, 2020. In spite of the letter and documentation, WJFW-NBC continued...

    On the subject of gun control, television news shows these days spout nothing more than propaganda. This past Sunday, seven million Americans watched CBS’s "60 Minutes" explain why “AR-15s are the choice of our worst mass murderers.” It was the most-watched television program that day.

    On the subject of gun control, television news shows these days spout nothing more than propaganda. This past Sunday, seven million Americans watched CBS’s "60 Minutes" explain why “AR-15s are the choice of our worst mass murderers.” It was the most-watched television program that day.In the worst mass public shooting, a killer in Las Vegas used AR-15s, a type of semi-automatic rifle, to murder 58 people. The second worst attack occurred at an Orlando nightclub in 2016, and the killer used both an AR-15 style rifle as well as a very commonly-owned handgun. In the third worst attack, at Virginia Tech,...
  • CBS News' Scott Pelley: I Was Fired For Complaining About 'Hostile' Workplace

    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...
  • Deplorable McCabe Enabled by Dormant Pelley Brings '60 Minutes' and America to New Low

    Despite not liking when people lurch into hyperbole, I will make this broad statement: Andrew McCabe’s arrogant performance on "60 Minutes" last Sunday enabled by a dormant interviewer, Scott Pelley, brought to America the fact that employees of the federal government acted at minimum irresponsibly and possibly illegally because of their own interests. It also brought our press to a low not reached in my lifetime. If you were not horrified, then you did not watch or you are a blind ideologue when it comes to Trump. There were so many astonishing moments in this interview it is impossible to...

    Scott Pelley’s tango dance with McCabe was just more steps in the dance After much media hype and online snippets the prime time CBS News interview of Andrew McCabe finally aired last night 2.17.19. It was a well-choreographed editorial hit-piece masquerading as journalism worthy of study by any legitimate journalism school if any still exist. 60 Minutes correspondent Scott Pelley interviewed McCabe for the show. Pelley handled McCabe with the deference, tenderness, and soulfulness of a dance partner, completely inappropriate for interviewing the disgraced former acting head of the FBI involved in an unprecedented coup attempt against President Donald J....

    **SNIP** CBS reporter Scott Pelley, who interviewed McCabe for Sunday’s “60 Minutes,” said Thursday that McCabe told him using the 25th Amendment was discussed and that officials were “counting noses” — or speculating on who might support such an endeavor. “There were meetings at the Justice Department at which it was discussed whether the vice president and a majority of the cabinet could be brought together to remove the president of the United States under the 25th Amendment,” Pelley said. “And the highest levels of American law enforcement were trying to figure out what to do with the president.” In...

    On Sunday, former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz told 60 Minutes’ Scott Pelley that he is seriously considering a run for president in 2020. Not everyone was pleased. Shortly after he took to the stage for a talk at a Barnes & Noble in Manhattan on Monday, Schultz was heckled. “I am seriously considering running for president as a centrist independent,” Schultz said during the discussion, echoing his remarks on 60 Minutes. “And I wanted to clarify the word independent, which I view merely as a designation on the ballot.”...

    Mike Cernovich is about to debut his long-awaited movie about “fake news,” a visual broadside on the hypocrisy seen often in liberal media and the clearest explanation yet of his tactics popular on conservative social media channels. In “Hoaxed,” a quick-paced two-hour documentary, he says, “All media is narratives and we are in a war of narratives.” The crowd-funded “Hoaxed” sticks it to big media like "60 Minutes" and others for playing favorites with Democrats. For example, Cernovich shows video of media figures questioning the health and mind of President Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, but ignoring the signs...

    Republican Sen. Jeff Flake admitted on Sunday that had he been running for re-election in Arizona, requesting the FBI to investigate allegations of sexual misconduct against Judge Brett Kavanaugh would have made him unelectable to the Senate. The Arizona senator voted “yes” to advance Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination out of the Senate Judiciary Committee and into the full Senate on Friday with the condition that an FBI probe would briefly investigate Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation of sexual abuse against the judge. Flake notably announced that he would not be running for re-election in October 2017. CBS News’ Scott Pelley asked...

    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. Transcript below: It's time to ask whether the attack on the United...

    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].”

    Many conservatives were in mourning Thursday after news broke of the death of Fox News mastermind Roger Ailes. In a statement, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell stated that “the Left would command a monopoly control of the so-called "news" media but for the Fox News Channel, and FNC would not exist but for him.” But for NBC, it was a time to tear down what he did for conservative media and politics in general. “The coroner says Ailes died from complications related to a head injury that he suffered after a fall in his home in Florida,” announced Anchor...

    The parameters of politically incorrect language keep expanding: now simply accusing somebody of being worse than Hitler is WORSE THAN HITLER!Of course that only applies to Republican spokesmen (microaggression!) for the Republican (trigger warning!) President, Donald J. Trump. In normal situations using sarin gas on your own people would be the major transgression, but in the post-Obama world of Ted Baxter news reporting it’s the reporting on the use of sarin gas that comes under attack. I don’t know about you but I couldn’t help but think “Ted Baxter”  when I hear the gravitas with which Scott Pelley pronounced the...

    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...

    Between Wednesday night and Thursday morning, the broadcast networks of NBC, ABC, and CBS presented several reports on the “massive” and “historic” flooding devastating Louisiana, even comparing storm damage to that suffered during Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Katrina. However, the one thing missing from the coverage was a single mention of the President of the United States, Barack Obama. On Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News, anchor Lester Holt proclaimed: “Now to the flooding disaster still impacting tens of thousands of people in the south. That massive tropical system that devastated Louisiana is now bringing new flash flood watches to Texas. This...

    On Friday, NBC’s Today skipped any mention of CIA Director John Brennan detailing Obama administration failures in the fight against ISIS while testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee. The morning show ignored the major story despite Thursday’s NBC Nightly News devoting a nearly two-minute segment to the topic. On Nightly News, anchor Lester Holt declared: “Now to a stark warning here at home from the director of the CIA over the threat from ISIS. John Brennan told Congress today efforts to defeat ISIS on the battlefield have not put a dent in the group's ability to carry out terror attacks....
