CBS News and 60 Minutes released a statement Tuesday after being caught red-handed selectively editing a statement from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis; insisting the “story speaks for itself.”
“When Florida State data revealed people of color were vaccinated at a much lower rate than their wealthier neighbors, 60 MINUTES reported the facts surrounding the vaccine’s rollout, which is controlled by the Governor,” reads the statement.

“For over 50 years, the facts reported by 60 MINUTES have often stirred debate and prompted strong reactions. Our story Sunday night speaks for itself,” it concludes.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis torched ’60 Minutes’ and CBS News during a press briefing Tuesday; saying the outfit knowingly lied because they “didn’t want to let go of the narrative.”
“They cut out everything that showed that their narrative was a piece of horse manure,” said DeSantis. “It shows you how dishonest they are. These are smear merchants. That’s why nobody trusts corporate media. They knew what they were doing was a lie. I knew what they were doing was a lie.”
“They know that we know that they’re lying, yet they continue to lie. We’ve offered them the information, and they declined to interview the key people because they didn’t want to let go of the narrative. There’s going to be consequences for that,” he added.
“I know corporate media thinks that they can just run over people. You ain’t running over this Governor. I’m punching back,” concluded the Republican.

BLOCKING for BIDEN: New ’60 Minutes’ Clip Shows Reporter Saying Hunter's ‘Laptop Can’t Be Verified!’
A new segment from an upcoming episode of 60 Minutes was released on social media Thursday afternoon; showing the President exposing host Lesley Stahl’s hostile line-of-questioning and defense of Hunter Biden’s laptop scandal.
“I think it’s one of the biggest scandals I’ve ever seen, and you don’t cover it,” said the President.
“Because it can’t be verified!” claimed Stahl.
“Why do you say that? Of course it can be verified. They found the laptop,” fired-back Trump.
“It can’t be verified!” insisted the 60 Minutes reporter.
“He’s gone into hiding for five days!” added the President on Joe Biden’s absence from the campaign trail.
“Well he’s preparing for your debate!” claimed Stahl.
TRUMP: "What can't be verified?"
STAHL: "The laptop!"
TRUMP: "Why do you say that?"
STAHL: "Because it can't be verified."
TRUMP: "The family, on the laptop — He's gone into hiding for five days."
STAHL: "Well he's preparing for your debate." pic.twitter.com/sfOj8AgyMx

BUSTED! Dem Mayor of Palm Beach Says ’60 Minutes’ Hit-Piece on DeSantis ‘Intentionally False’
The Democratic Mayor of Palm Beach County, Florida raised series questions surrounding ’60 Minutes’ coverage of Governor Ron DeSantis Monday; claiming their reporting was not just “based on bad information” but was “intentionally false.”
“I watched the 60 Minutes segment on Palm Beach County last night and feel compelled to issue this statement. The reporting was not just based on bad information – it was intentionally false. I know this because I offered to provide my insight into Palm Beach County’s vaccination efforts and 60 Minutes declined,” writes Mayor Dave Kerner.
“They had that information, and they left it out because it kneecaps their narrative,” he added.
Oh boy. Democrat mayor of Palm Beach County says 60 Minutes' "reporting was not just based on bad information — it was intentionally false." Says he offered to refute 60 Minutes' half-cooked conspiracy theory based on personal knowledge and "60 Minutes declined." pic.twitter.com/yJ9aRa6RMy
