Mike Cernovich on Sixty Minutes and the very real ISIS attack on Garland, Texas

I thought Mike Cernovich challenged Scott Pelley effectively (at least on the main tv show). Did that challenge by Cernovich keep Pelley and Sixty Minutes more honest?  It is impossible to say definitively, but I think so--or at least got his take in.  It was still a biased piece in Sixty Minutes obviously favors what it perceives as "real news" but Cernovich handled himself well. Consider the source, but definitely worth watching.

This is the after show "overtime" segment (and Cernovich's reaction)

I was far more troubled, however, by the immediately preceding segment by Anderson Cooper about the FBI being undercover at the Pam Geller Garland, Texas event and not doing anything when ISIS attacked. No fake news there, that absolutely happened (although was downplayed by the mainstream media at the time). There are a lot of questions that Director James Comey should be answering, but unfortunately Comey and the FBI conveniently dodge questions all the time.

Danger and Play: Cernovich gives 60 Minutes a big ratings win and Sixty Minutes has not released full Cernovich interview (I wonder why)

Right after the interview, Pelley contends Cernovich is promoting fake news...

  1. Sixty Minutes also covered up Obama's attempt to whitewash Benghazi as just a protest. Ted Koppel is the guy who would smother truth with a pillow, until it quit breathing.
