The corporate media is worried about Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ political star.
Democrats grow more concerned that DeSantis represents the greatest threat to Kamala Harris or Joe Biden hanging on to the White House for four more years.
And now Ron DeSantis said five words that terrified the liberal media.
CBS’s“60 Minutes” spent months on a hit piece falsely accusing Governor DeSantis of awarding the popular chain Publix a coronavirus vaccine distribution contract in Palm Beach County after Publix donated $100,000 to his 2022 re-election campaign.
In the hit piece, CBS edited out DeSantis’ answer where he explained that CVS and Walgreens were awarded the initial vaccine contracts to exclusively vaccinate nursing homes, and that Publix stepped up when several other private pharmacies were offered the opportunity to participate in the vaccination program.
CBS’s piece was so biased and one-sided that Palm Beach’s Democrat Mayor David Kerner released a statement blasting CBS’s reporting as “intentionally false” and revealed he was the one that suggested to Governor DeSantis that Publix deserved a contract to distribute the coronavirus vaccine.
After CBS’s hatchet job collapsed under the weight of its own dishonesty, Governor DeSantis wanted to send a message to other corporate media outlets that unlike Mitt Romney-style Republicans, he would fight back against their lies.
At a press conference Governor DeSantis slammed the CBS “60 Minutes” report as “a piece of horse manure.”
“They cut out everything that showed that their narrative was a piece of horse manure. And it shows you how dishonest — These are smear merchants. That’s why nobody trusts corporate media. They are a disaster in what they are doing. They knew what they were doing was a lie. I knew what they were doing was a lie. Everybody here knows what they were doing was a lie. They know that we know that they’re lying and yet they continue to lie. And they lied, and they lied, and they lied,” DeSantis began.
Governor DeSantis added that CBS purposefully refused to air any facts that contradicted their narrative because CBS was more interested in orchestrating a political smear campaign than in the truth.
DeSantis warned liberal media outlets that he would not allow them to steamroll him, and that he would fight back and hold them accountable.
“We offered them the information and they declined to interview the key people because they didn’t want to let go of the narrative. Well, guess what? There’s going to be consequences for that. I know corporation media thinks they can run over people, you ain’t running over this governor. I’m punching back and I’m going to continue to do it until the smear merchants are held accountable,” Governor DeSantis added.
A recent poll showed just ten percent of Republicans had trust in the corporate media.
The once-venerable “60 Minutes” running a dishonest hit-piece based on lies is one reason that whenever Republican voters see a story in a corporate media outlet, they automatically reject the story as fake news.
