    C-SPAN suspended political editor Steve Scully indefinitely on Thursday after he confessed to lying about his Twitter account being hacked following an exchange with former White House aide-turned President Trump critic Anthony Scaramucci. Scully was slated to moderate the second presidential debate between Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden scheduled for Thursday night. The Commission on Presidential Debates canceled the event Friday after the president declined to do the debate virtually after testing positive for COVID-19. C-SPAN announced last week it was conducting an investigation into the alleged hack. Scully had come under fire from the president who called him...

    NEW YORK — C-SPAN suspended its political editor Steve Scully indefinitely Thursday after he admitted to lying about his Twitter feed being hacked when he was confronted about a questionable exchange with former Trump aide Anthony Scaramucci. The news came on the day of what was supposed to be a career highlight for the 30-year C-SPAN veteran. Scully was to moderate the second debate between President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, which was canceled after Trump would not agree to a virtual format because of his COVID-19 diagnosis.

    “Scully allegedly claims he was hacked, the burden is on him to prove it. Hopefully he hasn't lied to the FBI about it, as that would be a crime. The CPD was in a tough position, with its moderator being exposed as partisan and possibly deceptive,” Jacobson said. “CPD's precipitous actions in moving to a virtual format without consulting the campaigns, and then cancelling the debate, took Scully off the front pages, but destroyed CPD's credibility."

    C-SPAN said Friday that its political editor Steve Scully, set to moderate the now-scrapped second presidential debate, didn’t initiate a questionable Twitter exchange with Anthony Scaramucci and that Scully’s account apparently was hacked. The tweet, which appeared Thursday on Scully’s Twitter account, read: ”@Scaramucci should I respond to trump,” according to a screenshot of the since-deleted tweet. Earlier Thursday evening, President Donald Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he thought Scully was a “never Trumper” who had worked for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden at one point. Scully served as an intern for then-Sen. Biden for a month...

    After presidential debate number one devolved into everyone talking at once, would anyone want to follow Fox's Chris Wallace into the moderator's hot seat? Erie's Steve Scully is the seasoned journalist tapped for the task and in a Zoom interview he told me he's ready. "Well I can feel the Erie support so I appreciate that and I am looking forward to it," Scully said. Presidential debate number two with Scully, host of C-SPAN's Washington Journal moderating, will be a town hall style debate with the questions coming from some 30 undecided voters in three south Florida counties. "And so...

    Today is the 40th anniversary of the greatest play in baseball history: Chicago Cubs outfielder Rick Monday snatching away an American flag from two hooligans determined to set it afire at Dodger stadium in Los Angeles. Scott reviewed this episode here on Power Line back in 2005 (and maybe Paul has, too, but I missed it in my archival search). But here’s the video of the episode with Monday’s recent comments about it at the end. Pay close attention to the narration by the great Vin Scully at the very beginning (this year being Scully’s last in the broadcast booth...

    'The X-Files' reboot has been a major success for Fox, but will there be more episodes after the event series wraps this upcoming Monday? While there are no firm plans at this time for a second round of episodes, with the ratings proof, Fox execs are undoubtedly discussing the possibility of ordering more episodes. Plus, the network has been promoting Monday's finale as the season finale - not the series finale. We said before it aired that we would love to do more, and we are over the moon with the performance. So far, the response has been really encouraging,...

    All right, where's Vin Scully? He's the most iconic baseball announcer in the game's history, but has obviously been snubbed by the East coast liberal establishment. Where did Scully's career begin? With the Brooklyn Dodgers, but that STILL doesn't buy him a seat with the terrible announcers from back East at THIS All Star game. This is an outrage!

    Twenty years ago tonight, I sat down on the couch in my little apartment in Ogden, KS, and flipped on the TV to watch the debut of a new show. The promotion blitz for the show had been dark and mysterious, and apart from some vague references to UFOs and the FBI, gave little idea as to what the show was actually going to be about. It had piqued my interest, as it was no doubt intended to do, and I figured with much of my life still ahead of me, I could spare an hour to check it...
