‘Absolute malarky’: Dems join GOP in blasting 60 Minutes for ‘irresponsible’ DeSantis coverage

Many in the mainstream media have attempted to take down prominent conservative officials through hit pieces and innuendo, but one such effort appears to have blown up in the face of executives at CBS.

60 Minutes report designed to discredit Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has reportedly backfired now that Republicans and Democrats alike are calling out its factual inaccuracies.

“Intentionally false”

An attempt to prove that DeSantis accepted a $100,000 donation from the supermarket chain Publix in return for preferential treatment in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine instead revealed that 60 Minutes seems to have ignored the truth in an effort to pursue an anti-GOP narrative.

Jared Moskowitz, the state’s former head of emergency management — and a Democrat — was among those who lashed out at the news program for spreading “absolute malarkey” about the governor.

“No one from the Governor’s office suggested Publix,” Moskowitz declared.

Another Democrat, Palm Beach Mayor Dave Kerner, also issued a sharp critique of the report, which he called “intentionally false” and “based on bad information.”

“Irresponsible suggestion”

In a statement following the broadcast, Kerner added: “I know this because I offered to provide my insight into Palm Beach County’s vaccination efforts and 60 Minutes declined.”

Publix issued its own statement completely disavowing the contents of the report.

“The irresponsible suggestion that there was a connection between campaign contributions made to Governor DeSantis and our willingness to join other pharmacies in support of the state’s vaccine distribution efforts is absolutely false and offensive,” the company asserted.

Conversely, 60 Minutes has neglected to highlight sexual harassment scandals involving Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo or Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s ongoing controversies and recall movement. Furthermore, the program argued that emails attributed to Hunter Biden “could not be verified” in a broadcast last year and former President Donald Trump took issue with its reporting, releasing uncut footage of his interview after an edited version was broadcast on CBS.

DeSantis stood up to the show’s biased reporting — but this time, the evidence was so strong that even prominent Democrats sided with him.

  3. I have not watched 60 minutes for over a year now. Don’t like their attitudes or their prejudices. I hope this last ordeal with smearing Governor De Santis is their final downfall and takes them off the air, period!

  4. more fake news The left are in bed with china, nothing to see at the border, soft and pre planned questions for biden, trash the constitution, trash the bill of rights, tax the USA citizens into poverty, make us lock down, take away jobs by the rule of pen, thats every thing china wants to happen before they take over and make you slaves!!!

  5. Their damage is done even though fake news. Many people just watch certain shows and until it hits main news and they are sued for their fake news would people learn the truth and it is sad because just an apology for these programs does not make it until they really change their ways and maybe make a positive 60 minutes on the truth of the situation showing they really are sorry and this is the truth can it be made correct! Show us 60 minutes the truth and become humbly sorry!

  6. Do you remember when 60 minutes did A story about General Motors pick up trucks having faulty fuel tanks that exploded on impact? I heard that it turned out that they were installing explosive devices on the trucks they were filming to sensationalize the degree of the actual explosions. They have been dishonest scum bags for years. Wake up people teach them a lesson by not watching their garbage.

  7. I haven’t watched 60 minutes for awhile now and definitely will never watch them again. What they are doing and how they report news is a disgrace. We want accurate news not news that has been filtered to fit their narrative. It is disgusting. Wake up America. Too many false things have been hammered in our
    news. Be more selective in what you watch. These people should be off the air.

  8. This is why it is important for people to speak up. This corrupt show 60 minutes was just doing what it always does, destroy good people’s reputations. If we don’t nip them in the bud, they would have succeeded. Just like Fakebook, Twittle, and Google, 60 minutes is just a leftwing propaganda outlet that shuts down free speech. The Fascists must be defeated.

  9. Perhaps 60 minutes show travel to the Mexican border, and for the first time in many years, and report the facts as they see them.
    Interview law enforcement and get their views of the situation.
    Then start speaking to the illegals coming into the country.
    Then show the cages filled with children, some of which were taken from the arms of their parents.
    The news media will be killing them self if they continue to fake news for the Biden administration. If they succeed in making America a communist country, there will be only one news source and it won’t be any that are here now.
