John Hinderaker asks a question many of us have been mulling for nearly two decades: why does 60 Minutes still exist?
It’s a holdover from a time when American media held some general (and often ill-deserved) respect for fairness and, if not “objectivity” (that’s a myth) at least detachment.
But between Rathergate, 17 years ago, and last week’s revelations that the show presented an “expose” of Ron DeSantis edited so far out of context as to be an absolute lie, it bids the critical thinker to ask: why is the show still on the air at all, if not to serve as a Democrat PR production?
Hinderaker has the original, and edtied-out, text. It is beyond damning. You be the judge.
My only regret is, having not watched the show in nearly 20 years, I have nothing to boycott.
