Skip to comments.The worst political biased hack in the news today

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.He also openly questions Donald Trump's mental status:
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 December last year, a man with an assault rifle stormed into a Washington-area pizzeria to free child sex slaves whom Hillary Clinton was holding there -- or at least that's what political blog sites had said. He fired into a locked door to discover no children in chains.
Sen. Bernie Sanders has called the president the "most dangerous in history." The shooter yesterday was a Sanders volunteer.
You might think that no sane person would act on political hate speech, and you'd be right. Trouble is, there are a lot of Americans who struggle with mental illness.
Earlier, on March 8, CBSs Scott Pelley suggested President Trump had psychological problems, asking longtime Democratic official Leon Panetta: Is it appropriate to ask whether the President is having difficulty with rationality?Pelley was born a left wing hack and remains one to this day.
More of that at the link.
Republicans Just Like Timothy McVeighOn the January 2, 1996 edition of CBS Evening News, Pelley perhaps overdramatized the impact of the government shutdown when he opened his story this way: "In April, terrorists tried to kill them. Today politicians stopped their paychecks. In Oklahoma City's Social Security office, they're being ordered to work for nothing."
Hailing Hillary's Work Ethic and 'Global Star Power'During a May 9, 2010 profile of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on 60 Minutes, Pelley hailed that "she doesn't let anyone work harder' and "she's the only person in American politics with global star power close to" that held by Barack Obama, Pelley gushed: "A few Secretaries of State have been famous; none has been a first name celebrity like Hillary."
Supreme Court 'Stole' 2000 Election for BushIn a softball interview with retired liberal Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens on the November 28, 2010 edition of 60 Minutes, Pelley touted Stevens's opposition to the court ruling on the 2000 presidential election: "He thinks [Bush v. Gore] is one of the Court's greatest blunders....There were many people in this country who felt that the Supreme Court stole that election for President Bush."
John Hinderaker at Powerline:
This is where Scott Pelley comes in. Almost unbelievably, he gave this deranged woman a platform to smear Karl Rove on 60 Minutes.Sharyl Attkisson alleges Scott Pelley killed many of her stories critical of barack obama:
In her 60 Minutes interview, Simpson claimed to have been Roves secret agent in Alabama. She said that during Siegelmans term as governor of Alabama, Rove had asked her to follow Siegelman around and try to get photographs of him in a compromising sexual position with one of his aides. This led to one of the great moments in recent broadcast history:60 Minutess Scott Pelley: Were you surprised that Rove made this request?Pelley was at a crossroads: He knew that either (1) he was on the verge of uncovering a whole series of Rovian plots, the stuff of which Pulitzers are made, or (2) he was talking to a lunatic. Intuiting, no doubt, which way the conversation was likely to go, Pelley discreetly chose not to inquire further.
Pelley: Why not?
Simpson: I had had other requests for intelligence before.
Pelley: From Karl Rove?
Attkisson blamed CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley and two veteran producers for keeping her stories off the air. Pelley took over as evening news anchor in 2011.Heat St. offers more of Pelley's one sided logorrhea:
There was a change in appetite for the types of stories that I often specialized in, which tend to be a lot of government watchdog stories, Attkisson said.
It was at least the second time in as many months that Attkisson had criticized Pelley by name. The first was during an appearance on C-SPAN.
During her NPR interview, Attkisson said she was clearly discouraged from pursuing stories once it became clear that theyd be unflattering to the Obama administration.

Fakey Tapper is right up there.
He should have remained doing kids’ news on CBS Saturday mornings. Peter Principle epitomized.
I’d throw in Shemp Smith and Joe Blow.
OH i thought this was a Chris Wallace thread ?!?!
Not anymore. Pelly is unemployed.
There are so many that it is impossible to even begin to name them all. Probably safe to say at least 75% of modern journalists are simply hard core Marxists.
BTW, Andrea Mitchell is right up there with the worst.
I’m with you on Andrea Mitchell. She has the look of evil.
Pot Smelly is an arrogant boob. Glad he’s getting canned. He is Ted Baxter without the heart of gold.
What happened? LOL! Not that he’ll me missed. They’ll just put another ‘lock jawed lib’ in his place.
