The Deranged 60 Minutes Hit Piece on Ron DeSantis Gives the Game Away
Quote:The left are terrified of Ron DeSantis, and that was never made more apparent than how 60 Minutes chose to handle the supposed “scandals” surrounding Florida’s vaccine program. RedState initially covered the absurdity last night. As Jennifer Van Laar put it in her write-up, the memo has gone out to destroy DeSantis, facts be damned.

While 60 Minutes attempted to make it seem like DeSantis had been paid off to allow Publix to host early, pop-up vaccination sites, the truth is much more mundane. You see, Publix has over 800 locations in Florida and also has large facilities and parking lots, a combination unmatched by smaller stores like CVS and Walgreens. Further, and more importantly, they were the only major outlet ready to go in January to start distribution. This is largely due to Publix already taking the lead in delivering millions of flu vaccinations a year. In other words, they had the systems and infrastructure in place.

But because Publix has donated to DeSantis’ PAC, that must mean corruption was afoot, right? Well, that’s what 60 Minutes wanted you to believe at least.]



Notice the use of the term “obtained” like 60 Minutes went full ninja in getting these documents. In reality, they are public domain. It would take you about two minutes to find the same information. What CBS did was take said information and paint it as nefarious when it’s clearly not. And why did 60 Minutes not mention that Publix has donated to Democrats too? Wouldn’t that seem prudent to say given it provides much-needed context?

Of course, they also deceptively edited DeSantis’ defense to all this nonsense so nothing should surprise us anymore.

Regardless, as RedState pointed out yesterday, the former head of Florida’s Emergency Management organization, a Democrat who campaigned for Gore and Obama, debunked 60 Minutes’ framing and assertions.



And with that, the entire “report” is shown to be false and worthless. There’s no actual journalism here, but rather, a deranged, hysterical admission that they are absolutely horrified by the possibility of Ron DeSantis running in 2024. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the media this scared, this early, of a possible presidential candidate. With Donald Trump, the media were convinced he’d be easy to beat right up until he won. With John McCain, they loved him until he challenged Barack Obama, at which point they flipped the switch.

But with DeSantis, we are sitting nearly a full three years out from the 2024 presidential campaign and the media are already showing their cards. I maintain that all they are doing is making him stronger, though. There’s nothing Republicans love more than someone who owns the media, and DeSantis does that in spades. You can expect him to rip 60 Minutes a new one after this spectacle. You can also expect the unfair derision he’s receiving to become a rallying cry.

What we are witnessing is the transformation of an already heavily biased press into an open opposition wing for the Democrat party. 60 Minutes, say what you will about it, was one of the few “news” shows left that maintained some level of seriousness and credibility. They’ve thrown that away now, and for what? To lie about DeSantis because they are scared of him? In the end, it won’t be worth it to their brand, but those who operate with such disregard for the truth for partisan gain rarely calculate long-term effects.

DeSantis isn’t going anywhere, and 60 Minutes’ reputation is in tatters. All in all, I’d say this backfired in glorious fashion.

They have nothing else. DeSantis makes all other blue state governors look like the incompetent twits that they are. SO, they need to make DeSantis look bad, even if it means people die.

RE: The Deranged 60 Minutes Hit Piece on Ron DeSantis Gives the Game Away
Quote:If your perception of the world is based on what corporate media tells you, you might think Florida is overrun by wild spring break revelers who are running around killing people by flaunting COVID precautions.

“How spring break in South Beach spun out of control,” the Washington Post blared. The Associated Press reported “deaths” and “violence,” while “police have arrested hundreds of partiers involved in violence and property destruction” in South Beach.

Business Insider lumped “street fights, arrests, and maskless crowds” together in its description of the debauchery. On March 20, the city of Miami Beach established a state of emergency, complete with an 8 p.m. weekend curfew.

The narrative that “Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ ‘open-for-business’ policy is backfiring in Miami Beach,” as Slate suggested, is as lazy as it is inaccurate. I’m sure there are some ne’er-do-wellers in Miami, as in any other place on earth. But the corporate media is so busy trying to dunk on DeSantis’s successful and freedom-centric COVID-19 response, they won’t tell you what’s really going on in the Sunshine State.

I’ve spent the past week in Florida, and visited beach towns on both the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. I’ve seen cheerful street musicians, sailboats unloading in marinas, kids on playgrounds, and moms pushing strollers in seersucker dresses. I’ve seen a few groups of what look like spring breakers too, walking down sunny sidewalks or sitting at beachfront bars enjoying fresh fried seafood.

In St. Petersburg, on Florida’s Gulf coast, the city recently finished rebuilding a pier that stretches out into Tampa Bay. Complete with playground, splash pad, restaurants, and palm trees, it’s a popular outdoor hub for locals and tourists.

Teenagers rollerblade down the boardwalk, while fishermen cast off the edge of the pier. People sit and dangle their bare feet over the water, practicing the old southern ritual of passing the time. A maskless street musician plays the accordion, while his dog retrieves dollar bills from the hands of delighted passersby.

Kayaks pass under the pier and jet skis speed around the bay. On the boardwalk, an older gentleman being pushed in a wheelchair is out for a stroll. “We’re open!” signs grace a few storefronts.

At the Saturday morning market, crowds buzz around tents buying farm produce, fresh-baked bread and fresh-squeezed orange juice, jewelry, art, and empanadas. Jenn Sperato mans the booth from the Habana Cafe, a local restaurant in Gulfport.

“Five dollars, honey,” she says as she hands out hot Cuban sandwiches and plantains. She asks another customer, clearly a regular, about her baby.

“Business keeps picking up,” she tells me. “You get tourists, but you’ll also have locals that will be here every week.”

Down on the beach, kids play in the sand and teenagers climb on rocks that jut out into the water. A few groups are taking family pictures. Behind them, a parasail glides by. An older lady walking her dog passes me on the sidewalk and grins, saying, “It’s so nice not to see masks!”

It’s a similar scene in New Smyrna Beach, just south of Daytona on the Atlantic side. A father-son duo heads out with their surfboards, while kids throw a football on the sand. People stand in line at an ice cream shop, while others skateboard or walk their dogs. Nearly a dozen American flags hang from the roof of a restaurant crowded with happy seafood connoisseurs.

Next door to a gas station selling boiled peanuts, an older couple sips wine on their balcony overlooking the street. Signs along the road announce sunrise Easter Sunday services on the beach, while others advertise outdoor movies.

At the Breakers, a rustic restaurant wedged between the beachfront and Flagler Avenue, young and old sit on barstools overlooking the water. Wide windows let in a salty breeze between hardwood plank walls, floor, and ceiling. Kids in swim shirts chow down on chicken tenders while retirees sit at the indoor bar watching a basketball game and chatting with waitresses.

Outside, a Jeep drives down the beach with an American flag waving behind it. A lone rooster wanders onto someone’s porch, while surf shops prop their doors open to let in the fresh air.

Locals and out-of-state visitors alike are enjoying the warm weather, open businesses, and freedom-loving attitudes of the Sunshine State. On the highway heading toward Tampa Bay, I saw license plates from Michigan, Kentucky, New York, Illinois, Georgia, Wisconsin, Indiana, Texas, Ohio, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Alabama, Colorado, and North Carolina. An Indiana car was towing a boat, and I saw more plates coming from Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s New York than from any other state.

Normality is alive and well in Florida, as much as corporate media don’t want to admit it. Families with young kids are enjoying the open restaurants, beaches, and storefronts alongside retired couples and teenagers. I sense an attitude of friendliness, and camaraderie with strangers rather than fear of them. And there seems to be an extra abundant number of American flags.

Ron can't debate. He will go down in Rick Perryesque flames during the GOP debate.

When I'm in Florida I enjoy going to Publix. About 18 years ago (my daughter was 3 for her first Disney trip) we shopped a Publix. I asked an employee where an item was located and he stopped what he was doing and walked me to the exact location.

I told him I could find it and he said it was no problem at all.

Since then I've been hoping to see a Publix in Memphis.

Look here fat, you dog faced lying pony soldier. President Sniff made it clear he doesn't work for you, and anyone who can take down Corn Pop, who was one bad dude, is no one to be messed with.

Biden held up long enough to let Trump implode and a fly didn't land on Kamasutra's head.

Meanwhile it’s crickets for Cuomo who actually killed people. I think even people on the left are starting to wake up and see what’s going on here.

Nah, those dumbasses think that the money tree shook and dollar bills came down from heaven. All they know is the gubmint gave them a loan courtesy for future generations, so they will continue to bury their heads in the sand or up each other's @sses.

RE: The Deranged 60 Minutes Hit Piece on Ron DeSantis Gives the Game Away
Quote:Democrat Mayor of Palm Beach County Dave Kerner railed against CBS’s “60 Minutes” Monday after the flagship program broadcast a special on Florida’s vaccine efforts where it manipulated interviews to amplify a manufactured narrative.

The program charged the state’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis with engaging in political patronage to prioritize vaccine distribution through Publix, the most widespread chain in Florida, which donated to his 2018 campaign. Kerner said the special was “not just based on bad information – it was intentionally false.”

“I know this because I offered to provide my insight into Palm Beach County’s vaccination efforts and 60 minutes declined,” Kerner said in a statement, emphasis his. “They know that the Governor came to Palm Beach County and met with me and the County Administrator and we asked to expand the state’s partnership with Publix to Palm Beach County.”

Kerner continued.

“We also discussed our own local plans to expand mass vaccinations centers throughout the county, which the Governor has been incredibly supportive. We asked and he delivered. They had that information, and they left it out because it kneecaps their narrative,” Kerner wrote.

While Florida’s vaccination campaign triumphs under Gov. DeSantis, legacy outlets have spent resources into hyping fake narratives surrounding the state’s successes while rival Democratic governors from New York to California face a litany of scandals.

In New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo faces an impeachment inquiry in the state legislature over his office manipulating COVID death data in long-term care facilities while the governor pursued a book tour on pandemic leadership.

In California, Gov. Gavin Newsom’s aggressive lockdowns subjecting his state to some of the harshest restrictions in the country he himself dismisses has provoked a legitimate recall effort.

DeSantis’s crime in the eyes of the progressive press has long been the governor’s refusal to implement long-lasting lockdowns under the guise of public health. Instead, the governor, nicknamed “Death DeSantis” by political opponents who demand life with zero risk at the expense of their neighbors’ livelihoods, has prioritized promoting personal responsibility that allows individuals to assess their own level of risk in a free society.

Despite DeSantis’s lack of draconian lockdown orders, Florida’s COVID-fatality rate remains 27th in the country, while New York and New Jersey lead with the highest pandemic death tolls.
