CSPAN Suspends Debate Moderator Steve Scully After He Admits to Lying About Scaramucci Twitter “Hack”

Low integrity.

CSPAN journalist Steve Scully has been suspended by the network after admitting to lying about a supposed “hack” of his Twitter account. Scully, who had been slated to moderate the since-cancelled second presidential debate, had accidentally tweeted what was meant to be a direct message to anti-Trump hack Anthony Scaramucci.

Scully had been coordinating with Scaramucci about responding to President Trump’s criticism of the Commission on Presidential Debates, which commissioned establishment liberal Chris Wallace to moderate the first debate against Trump.

CSPAN announced that Scully would be suspended indefinitely from the network for the hacked account lie. Reports emerged suggesting that both the FBI and Twitter began investigating the purported hack after Scully made the false claim. It’s entirely possible that a brief investigation would have left Scully caught red-handed, forced to explain his dishonest remark to CSPAN as well as federal law enforcement.

Scully released an apology for his lie on Thursday, admitting that the “hack” claim had been false from the beginning.

Verified establishment journalists- some of them nominal “conservatives-” had been quick to defend Scully after he was accused of lying about the “hack,” claiming the mainstream media operative had unimpeachable integrity.

The Commission on Presidential Debates has entirely shed any and all credibility it had with conservatives. It used a moderator that was secretly coordinating political messaging with a partisan liberal.

Unfortunately, there’s little to no accountability in the world of prestige establishment media, and Scully will likely be back as an MSNBC commentator next year in the vein of Dan Rather and Brian Williams.

As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen

Right on cue.

With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.

For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”

This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.

Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”

On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”

“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.

And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.

The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
