  • "Everyone Is Shocked": CBS News Hit Hard by Layoffs

    05/27/2020 8:38:34 PM PDT · by 11th_VA · 108 replies
    "I’m really sorry," network president Susan Zirinsky said Wednesday on an all-staff Zoom meeting about the cuts. "There is not a person who won’t be missed." CBS News was hit hard by a round of corporate cost-cutting that saw "a single-digit percentage" of the network's news staffers laid off, according to an estimate given by network president Susan Zirinsky during a Wednesday afternoon all-hands conference. Based on the size of the news network — which totals more than 500 staffers — employees did the back-of-the-envelope math and estimated that about 50 staffers were cut, though the network has not said...

    CBS News clarified a viral video it tweeted about allegedly dangerous conditions for hospital workers amid coronavirus after the nurse’s story quickly fell apart. The nurse, who goes by the name Imaris on social media, claimed that she was forced to quit her job after being asked to work in a novel coronavirus unit without a face mask. The video showed a woman in tears who said that America and “nurses are not being protected.” The video went viral, with CBS News being one of the publications to push the story. Even the Daily Caller, going off initial reports, produced...

    Media outlets and journalists on social media heavily pushed a story about a woman and her husband drinking fish tank cleaner because it contained chloroquine phosphate after President Trump had mentioned the medicinal version of chloroquine could be used to help treat COVID-19. After drinking the cleaner, the couple began to feel sick and were rushed to the hospital, where her husband later died and she was put in intensive care. She told NBC News they drank it out of fear of contracting the coronavirus and had heard Trump talking about chloroquine to treat patients.However, some of the reports and...
  • It Is Shameful That ABC News and CBS News Are Punishing the Epstein Leaker

    New York Magazine ^ | Nov 08, 2019 | Irin Carmon
    It gives me no pleasure to report that I agree, on just this one thing, with Donald Trump Jr., who went on The View Thursday to say he shouldn’t be condemned for naming the Ukraine whistle-blower when ABC News is cracking down on its own Jeffrey Epstein–related leaker. This is a matter on which Trump Jr. is both self-serving and hypocritical, but let us acknowledge this broken clock. News organizations should not hunt down leakers in their ranks, not when it’s a matter of valid public interest — specifically, how the press reported on a serial abuser — even if...

    CBS News has fired a female staffer believed to have had access to the tape of Amy Robach raging against ABC, Page Six understands. The staffer previously worked at ABC News and had access to audio of ABC anchor Robach caught on a hot mic complaining her bosses had failed to air her interview with Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Guiffre. A TV source said the woman was let go on Wednesday, after ABC execs alerted CBS.

    Referencing CBSNEWS, FoxNews on CBSNEWS, Breitbart on CBSNEWS | 25-Oct-2019
    It has to be 'snowing' inside CBSNEWS for the SNOW JOB being put out on Joe Biden. Take a pretty face (Norah O'Donnell) and polish a piece manure, and you have a snow job. Unfortunately, things coming out of CBSNEWS, ABCNEWS, and NBCNEWS are either hit pieces on conservatives, or snow jobs on liberals. Brainwashing is another term for the manure/feces coming out of ABCNEWS, CBSNEWS, & NBCNEWS. To describe Joe Biden one just needs two important words: BLACKMAIL and BRIBERY. Joe Biden is also CORRUPT and a sleaze. That is why there is a need for 'SNOW JOBS' by...

    For the past 10 days or so, ever since the latest deep state attempt to depose President Trump manifested itself in a phony “scandal” involving a phone call he made to the leader of Ukraine, we’ve been asking: Where the hell is Lindsey Graham? The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee hasn’t scheduled a single hearing or subpoenaed a single witness from the intelligence community who supposedly “heard” President Trump “threaten” to withhold aid from Ukraine in a “quid pro quo” exchange for help in exposing the real corruption: Joe Biden’s very real threat to Ukraine and his son’s sweetheart...

    While Democrats consider more than 20 candidates hoping to become their party's nominee, the Republican National Committee is forging ahead with an August ground-game push to boost President Trump's reelection campaign in more than a dozen states. The RNC and the Trump Victory Committee launched an "Open for Business" tour last week featuring more than 30 events across 17 states to highlight the administration's economic achievements. In conjunction with the events hosted by surrogates, the committees have launched a six-figure digital ad buy targeting cities like Cedar Rapids, Des Moines, West Palm Beach, Miami and Las Vegas. The ads, which...

    VIDEO Norah O'Donnell debuted as the anchor of the CBS Evening News on July 15 and, of course, her broadcast was chock full of the utterly predictable attacks upon President Donald Trump. In addition, she dished up gobs of nausea by invoking the name of Edward R. Murrow to go to Level 10 mode of extreme smugness and to imply that she will be using television as a "weapon" to continue attacking Trump. Note: My running commentary on these brief clips provides added value thus constituting fair use plus I've had all my shots. Therefore no need to go thru...

    60 Minutes corespondent Scott Pelley says he was let go as host of the CBS Evening News because he spoke up to his bosses about the “hostile” workplace within the network’s news division. In an interview with CNN’s Brian Stelter on Sunday’s Reliable Sources, Pelley explains, “We’ve been through a dark period of the last several years of incompetent management and sort of a hostile work environment within the news division. I lost my job at the evening news because I wouldn’t stop complaining to management about the hostile work environment.” Pelley — who served as anchor of the CBS...

    It’s anchors aweigh at CBS News. The division’s president, Susan Zirinsky, announced major on-air talent changes Monday for the network’s ratings-challenged evening newscast and morning program. As expected, Norah O’Donnell will exit her role as co-host of “CBS This Morning” to become the new anchor of “CBS Evening News,” replacing Jeff Glor. Starting this fall, the program will originate full time from Washington for the first time in its 71-year history. She will also be a contributor to “60 Minutes.” O’Donnell’s co-host John Dickerson will also leave the morning program to become a correspondent for the newsmagazine “60 Minutes.” He...

    one of the great things about the internet is that we can hear from an actual expert in destructive testing of gas cylinders in a controversy where condition of gas cylinder is of critical importance. Not just from NGOs and neocon think tanks. Dan Rather's downfall came because (as I recall) a typewriter specialist was able to recognize that fonts in forged document were not available in 1970s. An expert in relevant narrow topic observed detail that eluded the news reporters and think tanks. outing of Dan Rather was cool and one of first examples of outside eyes on establishment...

    No generous severance package for former CBS Corp. chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves. The CBS board of directors announced Monday that it has completed its investigation into the myriad allegations of sexual misconduct against its former chief and has decided there are grounds to “terminate for cause.” The most recent hit against the embattled executive came last month in the New York Times, which quoted a former actress named Bobbie Phillips who alleged that Moonves forced himself on her in 1995, when he ran Warner Bros. Television. The story came almost three months after a bombshell report in The New...

    Time's Up Legal Defense Fund and Time's Up Entertainment are among the 18 recipients of a $20 million donation from CBS Corporation, an amount determined when Leslie Moonves was pushed out as CEO over sexual misconduct allegations, according to a press release issued Friday. The money was earmarked for groups focused on "eliminating sexual harassment in the workplace." The funds will be distributed within 60 days of execution of the agreement, according to a person familiar with the arrangement. The amount each group will receive was based on their proposal and "capacity to absorb funds relative to their annual budgets."...

    The camp set up for the Central American migrant caravan in Tijuana was on “lockdown” on Sunday as Mexican residents of the city attempted to storm the area in protest. The unwelcome arrival of the caravan had put tremendous pressure on Tijuana’s resources resulting in many locals taking to the streets in opposition. It was a serious and dangerous development that went completely unreported during ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News Monday evening. The CBS Evening News kept up its record of being the only broadcast network evening program treating the caravan seriously. In a news brief, anchor Jeff...
