CBS News is stepping on all the fake news rakes this week. First, the network aired misleading footage for its New York City Wuhan coronavirus story by broadcasting footage of an Italian hospital that was overrun with Wuhan coronavirus patients. Then, the network apologized and said it was an editing error before re-airing the same footage for a story about a hospital in Pennsylvania.
CBS News then peddled another bogus story about a nurse who quit her job due to a lack of personal protection equipment, which was not vetted at all. And now, we have remarks being cut for national broadcasts that added context to the recent Wisconsin primary.
First, let’s say these elections were a mess. They were on, and at the last minute, Democratic Gov. Tony Evers backtracked which set off a legal fight that he ultimately lost
Via CBS: "Voters around Wisconsin traveled to the polls on Tuesday in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic. Tuesday's voting comes after days of legal battles over challenges to the election and some state leaders declining to take action to move the election day, as many other states have done."
"Voters in Milwaukee, and some in other parts of the state, waited in long lines to cast their ballots. Many voters and election workers donned masks for protection and tried to maintain social distancing while waiting in line."
Most of the piece dealt with the health risks associated with voting at this time, which is fair since scores of people were vulnerable to contracting the Wuhan virus by venturing out to the polls on Tuesday. One woman, RoseMary Oliveira, wasn’t going to be deterred, however (Via CBS 58) [Relevant portion in the video starts at 1:29 mark]: Full Story - Matt Vespa - Townhall
Nowhere has the Lefts assault been more evident than in the Media. CBS untill relatively recentlly had been at forefront of the attack on American Values, patriotism and exceptionalism. One prime example is a a June 1988, hour-long special CBS Reports: The Wall Within .
The show was praised by critics, the Washington Post called it extraordinarily powerful. One Vet Terry Bradley, told Rather he had tortured and skinned alive whole Vietnamese families, 50 men, women, and children in a single hour.
Coaxed by Dan Rather , Steve Southards, vividly described slaughtering hordes of Vietnamese civilians, and blaming the North Vietnamese. "... you went into the village, killed people, burned part of the village, then made it appear that the other side had done this?" Rather replied. Grizzly fantastic horrifying tales.
B. G. Burkett and Glenna Whitley, in their book *Stolen Valor : How the Vietnam Generation Was Robbed of Its Heroes and Its History claim that they had obtained the service records of all six soldiers, documenting where each was stationed throughout the Vietnam War. Only one of the men actually served in Vietnam; he claimed he was a Navy SEAL, but the records contradicted his claims and listed him as an equipment repairman , the other 5 never even set foot on Vietnamese soil. I can understand and possibly forgive One charlatan slipping through, but not 6 !!!!
