Default Florida Democrats rush to the defense of GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis after '60 Minutes' 'hi

This is yet another example of the left wing MSM telling viewers what they want them to hear. Never mind the facts or the truth, CBS has decided that Ron DeSantis is a threat to the left and has to be taken out before the next election.

However, this time the bias is so glaringly obvious that even Florida Dems are calling BS on CBS (Communist Bull S#%&).

Florida Democrats rush to the defense of GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis after '60 Minutes' 'hit job'

CBS News came under fire Monday for a “60 Minutes” segment on the Florida vaccine rollout, accused of airing a deceptively edited “hit job” on Gov. Ron DeSantis, a rising GOP star on the short list for the 2024 presidential nomination.

The segment hosted by Sharyn Alfonsi essentially accused Mr. DeSantis of “pay to play” by steering COVID-19 vaccinations in January to the Publix grocery chain because the company donated $100,000 to his campaign fund.

The suggestion that Mr. DeSantis favored Publix was immediately denounced by Republicans as well as Democrat Jared Moskowitz, director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management, who said that Publix received vaccines because “other pharmacies were not ready to start. Period! Full stop!”

No one from the Governors [sic] office suggested Publix. It’s just absolute malarkey,” Mr. Moskowitz tweeted.

Another Democrat, Palm Beach County Mayor Dave Kerner, said in a Monday statement that the “60 Minutes” reporting was “not just based on bad information — it was intentionally false.

Mr. DeSantis touted Monday the state’s focus on vaccinating seniors, saying that “what we did has worked.”

And obviously they were in Florida for three months, 60 Minutes, trying to drudge up any dirt that they could to smear me and the best they could come up with was a baseless conspiracy theory that was easily debunked, not just by me, which they had to edit out, but two very prominent Democrats in the state of Florida,” said Mr. DeSantis on Fox’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

The long-running news show was criticized for leaving on the cutting-room floor the governor’s explanation during a press conference as to why Publix received vaccines ahead of Walgreens and CVS, which have since begun inoculating residents against the virus.

“As we always do for clarity, 60 MINUTES used the portion of the Governor’s over 2-minute response that directly addressed the question from the correspondent,” said a CBS spokesperson in an email.


The network also cited the response of Palm Beach County commissioner Melissa McFinlay, who tweeted that the governor did not meet with everyone in her county and that the mayor told her that he “never asked for Publix sole distribution.”

On Sunday’s program, Mr. DeSantis was shown having a feisty exchange with Ms. Alfonsi, saying, “What you’re saying is wrong. That’s a fake narrative.”

Exactly.

Matt Gaetz is likewise indicted by the new Pravda despite the facts not supporting the allegations.

This incident is exactly why Trump called the MSM the enemy of the people. They are not using their platform to inform the populous, they are pushing their narrative. If the narrative and the truth are in conflict, the truth is shed for the narrative.

first off there's no such thing as a pharmacy having to get ready for a vaccine. they give flu shots all the time.
many heads of departments were replaced in secret in defiance of fla's sunshine law, by former governor Scott.
deDantis has done a complete flip flop since Biden became president. deSantis' ineptness and lackadaisical attitude is partly responsible for fla having such a problem in the trump years of the covid.

What does any of this senseless babble have to do with the topic?
