There is no doubt in my mind that the mainstream media and the social media platforms are protecting Joe Biden’s candidacy by withholding legitimate news stories and manipulating the release of false and misleading information…
CBS News, a division of the iconic CBS, is responsible for programs such as CBS This Morning, CBS Evening News; news magazine formatted programs such as CBS News Sunday Morning, 60 Minutes, and 48 Hours, and Face the Nation, a Sunday morning political affairs program.
In an unaired 60-Minutes interview with President Donald Trump, Correspondent Leslie Stahl demonstrated a progressive bias and the continuing disingenuous nature of CBS.
About the domestic spying on the Trump Campaign and select individuals associated with Donald Trump...
TRUMP: The biggest scandal was when they spied on my campaign. They spied on my campaign.
STAHL: There is no real evidence of that.
TRUMP: Of course there is.
TRUMP: It’s all over the place. Lesley…
TRUMP: They spied on my campaign and they got caught.
STAHL: Can I just say something? You know, this is 60 Minutes and we can’t put on things we can’t verify.
[OCS: I seem to remember a similar incident in 2004 when months before a presidential election, CBS’s premier journalist, Dan Rather, took to the 60 Minute’s air on September 8, 2004, and presented four documents asserting that there were significant negative allegations regarding George W. Bush’s military service. The documents were forged and debunked by a number of credible sources prior to air. This single episode cost Rather his credibility, reputation, and job.]
TRUMP: But you won’t put it on because it’s bad for Biden. Look, let me tell you.
STAHL: We can’t put it on things we can’t verify…
[OCS: Verify? Millions of dollars were spent, thousands of official documents presented, and thousands of hours of sworn testimony, both public and private, were made under the penalty of perjury – and Stahl still can’t verify the story to broadcast standards?]
TRUMP: Lesley, they spied on my campaign.
STAHL: We can’t verify that.
TRUMP: It’s been totally verified.
TRUMP: It’s been. Just go down and get the papers. They spied on my campaign. They got caught.
TRUMP: And then they went much further than that. Then they got caught. And you will see that, Lesley. And you know that. But you just don’t want to put it on the air.
STAHL: No. As a matter of fact, I don’t know that.
STAHL: And you’re out there…
TRUMP: So why don’t you get back to your interview and let’s go?
And then there was Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop, which contained emails, files, and photographs that allegedly documented corrupt activities in China, Russia, Ukraine, and elsewhere – plus evidence of criminal activities, some involving minor children…
TRUMP: He accepted money. His family. From Russia, from Ukraine, from China, and from other places.
STAHL: And a Republican…
TRUMP: His brother, who didn’t have experience, became a big builder in Iraq without experience. Take a look at what’s going on, Lesley. And then you say how that shouldn’t be discussed?
STAHL: I’m saying…
TRUMP: It’s the biggest scandal out there, Lesley.
STAHL: And you think it’s the biggest issue to campaign on.
TRUMP: I think it’s, I think it’s one of the biggest scandals I’ve ever seen. And you don’t cover it.
TRUMP: You want to talk about…
STAHL: Well, because it can’t be verified. I’m telling you.
[OCS: Once again with the “unverified excuse.” Consider that nobody in the Biden family, including Hunter and Joe himself, claimed the laptop was planted and the contents fake. On the contrary, a receipt with Hunter Biden’s signature has been presented, Hunter Biden’s attorney requested the return of the laptop, the FBI obtained the computer with a Grand Jury subpoena a year ago as part of a money laundering investigation, the Director of National Intelligence said it wasn’t Russian disinformation and the FBI and DOJ concurred. Plus, some of the documents have been independently corroborated by third-party recipients. Verified?]
TRUMP: You want to talk about insignificant things?
STAHL: I’m telling you.
TRUMP: Of course it can be verified. Excuse me.
STAHL: We can’t. We can’t…
TRUMP: They found the laptop. Lesley, Lesley!
STAHL: It can’t be verified.
TRUMP: What can’t be verified?
STAHL: The laptop!
TRUMP: Why do you say that?
TRUMP: Even the family doesn’t…
STAHL: It’s unverified.
Amazingly, CBS appears to have no problem reporting on leaks, innuendo, and downright lies from anonymous sources when it came to the Steele Dossier and the Trump/Russian collusion hoax perpetrated by the Hillary Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee; and apparently under the auspices of the highest officials in the Obama Administration.
It appears that CBS has been played. They thought they could make Donald Trump look bad while avoiding the Biden laptop controversy and the potential issue of a future president being a national security risk susceptible to blackmail. Instead, President Trump used the mainstream media to put the issue squarely before the viewing audience and all the media outlets that refused to explore the laptop allegations. It remains to be seen how 60 Minutes edits the program or if the episode will be aired.
CBS has soiled its diapers, and Leslie Stahl looks like a progressive hack.
We are so screwed.
