60 Minutes was caught deceptively editing a confrontation between CBS News correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in a piece aired on Sunday night.
The 60 Minutes piece featured Alfonsi accusing DeSantis of engaging in a pay-for-play scheme with Publix whereby he gave them the rights to distribute coronavirus vaccines after they donated $100,000 to his political action committee.
During a March 22 press conference, Alfonsi grilled DeSantis on the issue and he responded in detail to her accusation and rejected it as a "fake narrative."
Nonetheless, Alfonsi and her producers simply cut out the majority of DeSantis' response and did a deceptive jump cut (with no flash or clear indicator there was a cut) to make it seem like he didn't have much of a defense.
Compare his full response here to what CBS aired below:
The Daily Wire shared the following transcript with the words CBS cut out in bold:
Sharyn Alfonsi: Publix, as you know, donated $100,000 to your campaign, and then you rewarded them with the exclusive rights to distribute the vaccination in Palm Beach—The piece also accused DeSantis of racism for vaccinating elderly people first, who are at the highest risk of dying from coronavirus, rather than vaccinating PoCs first in the name of fighting racial injustice.
The deception is truly remarkable and reminds me of the time disgraced journalist Katie Couric deceptively edited an anti-gun documentary to make herself look good and her subjects look foolish.
If CBS wanted to find a pay for play scandal, why don't they investigate why DeSantis flew to Israel with GOP megadonors Sheldon and Miriam Adelson to sign a law banning criticism of Israel in Florida public schools?
That was a scandalous action done right out in the open (it was also the lowest point of DeSantis' otherwise rather impressive governorship) but 60 Minutes and the rest of their allies in the media never said a word about it.
I wonder why that is?
