Just when you think the “60 Minutes” hit piece on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis can’t get any worse, another aftershock goes off in their faces.

In their scramble to defend their bogus scandal story, “60 Minutes” wrote that they “spoke to State Emergency Management Director Jared Moskowitz twice, but he declined to be interviewed on camera for our story until well after our deadline.”

Moskowitz (a Democrat) responded on Twitter that he was too busy dealing with a 100-year health emergency to appear on camera, but he did speak with “60 Minutes.” He said, “They were very nice, but I told them that (their Publix story) was bull(BLEEP!) Walked them through the whole process.”

It’s obvious that heads should roll over this story, if not for it being fake partisan propaganda than at least for it being such incompetently created, easily debunked fake partisan propaganda.

Unfortunately, I’m inclined to agree with Beckett Adams, who writes at the Washington Examiner that “60 Minutes” is “standing by” this contemptible lie, and there will be no firings and no accountability, apologies or repercussions.

He cites numerous other examples of big news media pushing similar false accusations against Republicans and conservative organizations and facing no blowback. Some of the perpetrators, like Katie Couric and Dan Rather, who gave us the concept of “fake but accurate news,” are still treated as beloved celebrity journalists. Rather even has a journalism award named after him and a standing invitation to participate in any Biden White House press briefing of his choosing.

I guess he and Biden could spend the time swapping pointers on how to tell lies about Republican Presidents.

    Governor Huckabee, in the interest of honesty in advertising, we should refer to our media services as 'The ALLEGED News Network.' That is how criminals are referred to until charged. So, until the press demonstrate they are journalists, by their own definition, the press are now 'alleged journalists.' Thank you for reporting actual news.

    Dan Rather is the biggest lying newsman ever. He has no shame.

    I know all the news media is in the Democrat pocket, but 60 Minutes is a BIG disappointment. I watched it for years. Sorry to see it go, the way all news media has gone. They are not"journalists, they are agents of the Socialist Democrat Party. Our country is in deep trouble when we don't have an HONEST free press. I'm years 87old. I never thought I would see this sad day.

    Mike Wallace and Don Hewitt weren't much better but they never created false narratives. They just gave you more of one side of the story but never went this far!
