The 60 Minutes segment on fake news said some mean stuff about me and thats OK. The segment was hard-but-fair. I can self-promote on my own and expect journalists to hit me hard when appropriate. (Watch the 60 Minutes segment here.)
Scott Pelley and I sparred for over 45 minutes. As the 60 Minutes episode was their highest rated since 2008 (when Barack and Michelle Obama appeared), the people have demanded to see the full interview. Here is the transcript of my interview with Scott Pelley of 60 Minutes on fake news. Scott Pelley: How would you describe what you do? Mike Cernovich: Im a lawyer, author, documenter, filmmaker, and journalist. Scott Pelley: And how would you describe your website? Mike Cernovich: Edgy, controversial content that goes against the dominant narrative. Scott Pelley: Whats the dominant narrative? Mike Cernovich: The dominant narrative is that there are good guys and there are bad guys. The good guys are liberals. Everybody on the right is a bad guy. Lets find a way to make everybody look bad. Lets tie marginal figures who have no actual influence to anybody we cannot overwrite. Thats the narrative. Scott Pelley: Thats not a narrative Im familiar with. Whos narrative is that? Mike Cernovich: Well, I guess, the question I always ask people is, whys David Duke relevant? Hes not. But the media drags him out every time theres a Republican runs for office because David Duke knows if he endorses a candidate, then people will say oh my god, you better disavow this guy. You better disavow. Why? Nobody has anything to do with that guy. Hes trash, right? Whereas on the left, when you have people like Reverend Jeremiah White, a right rath-Reverend Jeremiah Wright, and other kind of fringe people. I dont see them being dragged out and saying Bernie, you better disavow, Hillary, you better disavow this guy. Scott Pelley: But my, my question is whos narrative is that? Mike Cernovich: Well, its largely cultural. There narrative would definitely be conventional mainstream media. Which is made up of certain people. 90% of journalist who donate to campaigns, gave to Hillary Clinton. Theres a left-leaning bias for sure. Which is not necessarily nefarious, but is the result of our own human limitations to view the world rationally. To filter things, our own confirmation bias, and through cultural norms. Scott Pelley: And, uh, you describe the mainstream media as what? Who is that? Mike Cernovich: The industry. 90% of media companies are owned by six corporations. Concentration media ownership. So the New York times would be. The New York Times, the Washington Post, theyre all writing the same kind of stories. Scott Pelley: Describe to me your biggest story so far. Mike Cernovich: Probably my hoax busting. Ive always been very good at finding hoaxes that, again, are narratives. People say this happened. For example, the University of Virginia rape case. Complete and total hoax. Rolling Stone said fra-five people in a fraternity had raped this girl, thrown her on the table. She had glass all over her body. I busted that hoax. I did a lot of reporting on, probably actually my most valuable work for me, and gratifying, is that I was at the Democratic National Convention. And I watched all these massive protests. Five, ten thousand people. Largely Bernie supporters. And I noticed there werent any mainstream outlets out there covering that.
And we talked earlier about narratives. Well, there are narratives. And I will give you a great example. I went to the RNC, I went to the DNC, to do a documentary phone link. The narrative at the RNC in the media was divisiveness. Its divided. Theres three people who supported Ted Cruz that like Trump. Divided, divided, divided. That becomes the dominant narrative. Whether that is group-think or whatever, we dont know. Okay. The narrative at the DNC was theyre uniting around Hillary. Theyre uniting around Hillary. Meanwhile, I march with the protesters from city hall and Philadelphia all the way to Franklin Della Roosevelt Park five, ten thousand people everywhere you looked, and I way well, wait a minute. I dont se much unity here. I see a lot of people who are very upset with Hillary Clinton. They think the primarys are rigged. Theyre pro Bernie, theyre pro Jill Stein. And these people are not going to vote for Hillary. So I found that gratifying because even though Im though of as a right-wing person, I was actually giving coverage and a voice to more liberal people.

Your lack of paragraphs kills my eyes. Unreadable.
Oh please Scott Pelley. The liberal is the good guy and the people on the right are bad narrative is one you’re not familiar with? Dude, you follow it every day on that sorry newscast of yours. I thought Dan Blather was as arrogant and smug as any MSM newsreader could get until Scott Pelley hit the scene.
Go to the link!
That’s where the story is. It’s a 45 minute interview. Worth reading.
You can see the hatchet job 60 Minutes did at the end.
Thanks for posting the interview.
save for later
Scott Pelley is light in the loafers, but I’m sure you all knew that.
I know. Awful. Paragraphs were made to keep us sane.
Just go to the link. I couldn’t reprint a 45 minute interview.
Next time I’ll just post one sentence and say go to the link!
Last night, the RINERS were on with Tavis Smiley. Spouting
propaganda, (or what passes for “brilliance”), they both
didn’t realize how uninformed they sounded. When Pappy
Riner pontificated on what a great President his boy would
make, I laughed at the joke. Only he was serious.
I try to occasionally inform myself on what sort of diarrhea
the left is spewing; but can’t take much of it at a time.
How many of the prime time folks are gay? ABC, CNN, Fox. All have prime time homosexual anchors (David M., Anderson C., Shep S.).
There a reason half our anchors must come from 1% of the population?
If you read this he really kicked Pelley’s ass in this interview. Now I know why they don’t want to show it in full. They had no valid come backs for his arguments but “Muh Journalism!” This really pointed out how dead and un-reflective main stream journalism is.
Agree. He kicked Pelley’s ass pointing out the ‘fake news’ from the NYT and WaPo.
No wonder they had to edit it down. Surprised they let him print a transcript.
It occurs to me that after the left tied up academia and media, they then put the icing on the cake with sodomites by having them clamor to join, and lead, the remaining most conservative institutions in the country, such as the Scouts, the mlitary, and previously, now apostate, Christian denominations.
. and put it at the end of each line!
thanks for posting this:
there are multiple other links for his interview which are SAID to be unaltered however my experience so far has been that they’re all chopped tp 10% of what it was.
Hope I can find time for a full you tube listen
