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.
More than 40 College and Young Republican Groups Sign Letter Demanding Action on Big Tech Censorship from Senate GOP
Calling out Silicon Valley’s election interference.
Almost 50 youth conservative organizations, ranging from Young to College Republican Chapters and America First student groups, signed onto an open letter on Friday demanding action from Senate Republicans on Big Tech censorship and political authoritarianism.
The young conservatives and nationalists cited the recent suppression of the Hunter Biden email scandal, with platforms such as Twitter implementing an unprecedented level of political censorship to squelch a New York Post report detailing insider foreign business dealings and Joe Biden’s knowledge of them.
Read the letter in its entirely here.
In a statement provided to Big League Politics, College Republicans United at Arizona State University emphasized the need for conservatives to unite against the authoritarian alliance of the Democratic Party and Silicon Valley tech monopolies.
“Democrats use to be the loudest critics of ‘Corporate America’ trampling on the rights of average Americans. These days they are nothing more then corporate apologists who protect crony capitalism.”
Populist Senator Josh Hawley has taken point in the drive to hold Silicon Valley oligarchs to account for their censorship of the American people, but the anti-Big Tech movement has been hamstrung by malcontents within the Senate GOP caucus unwilling to do little more than whine about censorship, while actively undermining a policy solution.
