CBS news anchor Scott Pelley offered an apology — for the wrong reason.
“Our house is on fire,” said the CBS News managing editor and evening anchor. Pelley, in a recent speech at Quinnipiac University, said: “Today, right now, as we occupy this house (of American journalism) that was built for us, our house is on fire. These have been a bad few months for journalism. We’re getting the big stories wrong, over and over again.”
Oh, please, pass the Kleenex.
You mean news outlets frequently get facts wrong when competing to satisfy the public’s desire for information?! When has that not been the case? Remember when we were told that given the number of people working at the World Trade Center on 9/11/01, we should expect 20,000 to 40,000 dead? During Hurricane Katrina, some news outlets described gun battles that turned out to be nonexistent and offered up death totals that thankfully turned out to be exaggerated.
By him saying THE PAST FEW MONTHS, these frauds have not changed one bit.
Perhaps you should stop reporting the big stories wrong, over and over again. The American citizens are the ones who are "getting" them wrong, because they're getting them from you!
Not to mention NOT EVEN REPORTING some of the big stories.
Its in cinders around them and they don;t even know it!!
“During Hurricane Katrina,”
I particularly liked the ‘toxic soup’ story about how the flood waters contained every disease known to mankind and some new ones, too! ;-)
Trying to reclaim some credibility for the post-Obama world?
Please post the pic of the looter with the crate of beer bottles.
That single period has to stand as the shortest excerpt ever posted on Free Republic.
Why did you even bother?
Or something like that. I don't know what it means either.
I have the other one where the Heineken ad is not there but cannot find it right now.
LOL! That was brilliant, Bill. Never knew you were such a wordmeister.
That was before the water-testers told them that harsh chemicals from flooded refineries had so loaded the water that nothing could live in it.
So the network TV reporter who was worried about the red rash he was getting on his calves from wading in the floodwaters turned out to have chemical burns not fulminating necrotizing staph infections.

If Pelley were actually sorry, he’d eat a bullet in contrition after encouraging the other fifth-column fourth estate talking heads to do the same. Instead, he shows up on his “news” show and broadcasts more leftist propaganda. Maybe Pelley will choke on his own vomitous lies.
