Nolte: How the ’60 Minutes’ Hit on Ron DeSantis Collapsed into a Steaming Pile of Fake News

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis

60 Minutes, a long-disgraced news magazine that airs on far-left CBS, launched a political assassination attempt against Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) Sunday night. By Monday afternoon, this shamelessly dishonest hoax and conspiracy theory had collapsed into a steaming pile of fake news.

According to 60 Minutes, DeSantis accepted a $100,000 political donation from Publix supermarkets and then awarded Publix with a vaccine contract. In other words: pay-for-play.

Here’s how the hoax fell apart….

It began with the discovery that the long-disgraced 60 Minutes had deliberately and maliciously edited a clip of DeSantis while he answered a round of questions and heckling from disgraced-60 Minutes correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi.

Through this deliberate act of malicious editing, the long-disgraced 60 Minutes tried to make DeSantis look like a fool as he dodged her question. The truth, however, as we saw in the full video, is that he answered her question at detailed length and did so to the satisfaction of any reasonable person.

The full video hit social media almost immediately after the long-disgraced 60 Minutes hit piece aired and quickly went viral.

Then, Jared Moskowitz, Florida’s former head of emergency management and a Democrat, lashed out at the long-disgraced 60 Minutes as liars spreading “absolute malarkey” about DeSantis.

  1. This is why no major “News” organization is trusted anymore. (Except forthose biased to the extreme on either side politically) It is much harder to find out the real story anymore with most “journalists” all having personal agendas and keeping all stories turned up to 11.

  2. What’s wrong with these people? Do they NOT UNDERSTAND that the person being interviewed has the technology to record these interviews while they are being conducted?

    Do they NOT UNDERSTAND that these complete, unedited interviews can be uploaded to any one of at least a dozen YouTube-like streaming services?

    Katie Couric was completely discredited when she pulled a similar stunt on Alex Jones some years ago.

    You would THINK that these dinosaur media “news” shows and their personalities would realise that a person of DeSantis’s stature would employ media relations people that would also be recording at the same time. You would THINK.

    Unfortunately, they don’t THINK. These dinosaurs are still living in the past – before all this newfangled technology existed.

    Everybody at CBS who participated in this sham should be fired. Immediately.
