Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume panned CBS’s long-running “60 Minutes” program over a Sunday segment that improperly suggested Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis engaged in a “pay-for-play” arrangement with grocery chain Publix to distribute COVID-19 vaccines.
The newsmagazine implied that DeSantis awarded Publix with the rights to provide vaccines in response to the chain’s donation of $100,000 to a DeSantis political action committee, which the governor denied.
In addition, “60 Minutes” producers were accused of deceptively editing video of a news conference where DeSantis explained the state’s reasoning for going with Publix, namely, because its stores are geographically located near the bulk of Florida’s most vulnerable populations.
“The reporting was not just based on bad information — it was intentionally false,” Democratic Palm Beach County Mayor Dave Kerner said Monday in a statement.
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
