CBS had fairly an Easter weekend. We’d name it one other “Equity Is Overrated” Weekend. CBS “Information” lurched from an embarrassing article that brazenly touted “3 methods corporations may help battle Georgia’s new restrictive election legislation”…to pandering to Hunter Biden and his household….to slamming Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as a coronavirus exploiter. It was a superbly partisan lineup.

CBS got here underneath the gun even earlier than 60 Minutes aired for deceptively enhancing out components of the battle between CBS correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi and Gov. DeSantis. The silliest part of this piece is when Alfonsi critically compares the vaccine rollout in Florida to….The Starvation Video games. 

Does anybody suppose CBS would have been in Florida investigating vaccine distribution if Democrat Andrew Gillum had crushed DeSantis in 2018? As an alternative, Gillum was discovered bare and unconscious, aligned with a male intercourse employee and a stash of crystal meth. 60 Minutes did not discover that fascinating. 

Hunter Biden drew two interviews on CBS, one with Tracy Smith on Sunday Morning and one with Anthony Mason for Monday’s CBS This Morning. This does not rely discussing the Tracy Smith interview on Friday’s morning present. 

The timing right here is blatantly self-interested. It’s information when the Bidens determine it’s, when it’s time to money in….with a Simon and Schuster book, a division of CBS. They introduced this connection, however it nonetheless smells. It gave CBS each purpose to squash the Hunter Biden story when the New York Put up was dropping bombshells final fall. On Monday, it is the #9 finest vendor at Amazon.

Some really helpful hyperlinks to associate with this chat: My MRC Particular Report on this present was Syrupy Minutes. Then there’s the sleazy 60 Minutes story on the e book Lucky Son, the place creator J.H. Hatfield floated the wild allegation that George W. Bush was a cocaine supplier. Hatfield was uncovered as a person convicted in 1988 of paying successful man $5,000 to homicide his former boss with a automotive bomb. 

However 60 Minutes truly posted this online: “Simply because he lied to his editors about being a convicted felon is not a ok purpose for these editors to doubt his e book, wherein he makes use of nameless sources to accuse George W. Bush of masking up an arrest for cocaine when he was a younger man.”

The host of this section was one Lesley Stahl, who final fall was telling Donald Trump there was no proof on Hunter Biden’s laptop computer that was value investigating.
