  • 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...

    This is amazing.I normally do not care for the CBS show 60 minutes and their Leftist virtue signaling.  However, this 15 minute segment is one of the exceptions from 1976 with Mike Wallace.  It is very relative to what we are hearing about vaccines today, and how Bill Gates, the W.H.O., the CDC, the U.N., etc..  are trying to make it a requirement for a job to be free, etc..  I thought that was called medical tyranny?

    A renowned global economist has told 60 Minutes that total society lockdown is not a sustainable long term solution to stopping the spread of coronavirus. Danish political scientist Dr Bjorn Lomborg describes a delicate and difficult balance that needs to be achieved in order to stop the spread of the virus without causing total economic meltdown. But can we stop the spread of coronavirus without destroying global economies?
  • Bernie Sanders Misleading Narrative on Communist Cuba

    With Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) becoming the odds on favorite to win the Democrat nomination, the media rehabilitation efforts have begun. First up on Sunday evening was CBS’s 60 Minutes, which moved to protect Sanders against attacks that he is a communist.  Host Anderson Cooper didn’t ask Sanders about his decision to honeymoon in the former Soviet Union or about past proposals for “public ownership of utilities, banks, and major industries,” proposals that Sanders has never disavowed. However, Cooper did ask Sanders about some positive statements that he has made about Communist Cuba.In explaining why Cubans didn’t help the U.S....

    Sen. Bernie Sanders, the frontrunner for the Democrats' presidential nomination, doubled down on his support for some of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro's policies, saying in an interview that aired Sunday, "it's unfair to simply say everything is bad." Speaking to CBS News' "60 Minutes," Sanders, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, pointed to social welfare programs introduced under Castro's regime that he described as redeeming, despite the communist dictator's often repressive human-rights violations against Cubans. "We're very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba but you know, it's unfair to simply say everything is bad. You know? When Fidel Castro came into...

    60 Minutes ^ | 3 January 2020 | Sharyn Alfonsi
    A 60 Minutes report is revealing new information about last August's jail cell death of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi reports on Sunday's 60 Minutes that Epstein's body was found by federal correctional officers "at approximately 6:30 a.m." and sources say one of them could be heard saying, "Breathe, Epstein, breathe." Forensic Pathologist Dr. Michael Baden was hired by Epstein's brother, Mark, to investigate his death. Dr. Baden observed the autopsy and believes that Jeffrey Epstein died around 4:30 that morning, two hours earlier. The New York Medical Examiner has ruled Epstein's death a suicidal hanging. Alfonsi...

    A producer at CBS News alleged in a lawsuit filed Tuesday that she was “ostracized, isolated and penalized” after reporting inappropriate behavior by a veteran "60 Minutes" producer. Associate Producer Cassandra Vinograd, who previously worked for The Associated Press and NBC News, joined "60 Minutes" in its London bureau in June. Soon thereafter, senior producer Michael Gavshon engaged in inappropriate behavior that included sharing a photo in a text message of him and several friends urinating on a fire, according to the lawsuit filed in New York Supreme Court. The photo was included as evidence in the lawsuit. Vinograd, 35,...

    Tim Cook has come out about a real truth of the decline in manufacturing. What he omitted however, is that no one will manufacture in the U.S. unless they absolutely have to due to a 38% corporate tax rate. On 60 Minutes Sunday, Charlie Rose asked Apple CEO Tim Cook about his company’s manufacturing practices in China. Cook said the decision to use Chinese manufacturing has nothing to do with American workers demanding higher wages. He said it was because the Chinese have more skill. “Let me be clear,” Cook told Rose, “China put an enormous focus on manufacturing in...

    There was a lot of testimony during this past week's impeachment inquiry about foreign interference in our 2016 election, including the president's assertion that Ukraine was involved. But the president's own intelligence agencies say it was the Russians who "hacked" the 2016 elections. Special counsel Robert Mueller spelled it out in his report. Now the Justice Department has at least two open cases against Russian citizens for interfering with our presidential and congressional races, we decided to take a closer look at one of them - the case against 12 Russian military officers accused of breaking into the Democratic Party's...
  • With whistleblower ‘protection’ fake news, media does Trump another favor

    NY Post ^ | September 30 2019 | Sohrab Ahmari
    Even on its own terms, the media’s Get Trump project has proved a monumental failure. If the blob of blue-checkmark Twitterati wanted to help President Trump portray the latest impeachment push as a partisan witch hunt, they couldn’t have done a better job than they are now. Consider the latest example: On Sunday, CBS’ venerable “60 Minutes” program reported on Twitter that “the government whistleblower who set off the impeachment inquiry of President Trump is under federal protection because they fear for their safety.” The explosive news seemed to vindicate his opponents’ darkest fantasies about the president: Of course Trump...

    A lawyer for the Ukraine whistleblower blasted CBS’s “60 Minutes” on Sunday for “literally making stuff up” in its reporting about a letter his legal group sent regarding their client’s safety. In its reporting on the letter, “60 Minutes” claimed the whistleblower was under federal protection, even though that was clearly not stated in the letter. In response, the whistleblower’s legal team published the letter and called out “60 Minutes" for their shoddy reporting. “NEWS ALERT: 60 Minutes completely misinterpreted contents of our letter, which is now published online at …,” attorney Mark S. Zaid tweeted. “Nor have we,...

    To say that the Democrats are obsessed with race these days is the equivalent of saying the sky is blue. I'm a racist. You're a racist. Donald Trump's a racist. Nancy Pelosi was a racist until she attacked Trump for racism. Your neighbor's a racist. Your insurance broker's a racist. Your dentist's a racist as well as your periodontist. All white males are racist. Some white females are racists, especially those married to white males. Everywhere a racist. Never mind that many of those people have no history of racism. It doesn't matter. Never mind that their families came here...

We may share the passion for a particular cause, but our job is to follow the facts wherever they may lead. We can’t ignore something that reflects badly on a noble cause, as an activist might. We have to care about the means as much as the end because our duty is to search for the whole truth. -SNIP- It is a fact that...

    WASHINGTON — Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said in an interview that aired Sunday that a "crime may have been committed" when President Donald Trump fired the head of the FBI and tried to publicly undermine an investigation into his campaign's ties to Russia. McCabe also said in the interview with "60 Minutes" that the FBI had good reason to open a counterintelligence investigation into whether Trump was in league with Russia, and therefore a possible national security threat, following the May 2017 firing of then-FBI Director James Comey.

She offered her remarks in an interview published last Friday with the Mike Drop podcast, hosted by retired Navy SEAL Mike Ritland.Ritland characterized U.S. news media as “absurdly left-leaning” and supportive of Democrats, further describing the status quo of American news media’s left-wing and partisan Democrat biases as a “huge f__ing problem” and “disaster for this country.”Logan concurred, “I agree with that.
