“They cut out everything that showed that their narrative was a piece of horse manure,” DeSantis said in a press conference on Tuesday.
“These are smear merchants. That’s why nobody trusts corporate media. They are a disaster in what they’re doing.”
“The message is for people out there is unless you’re a partisan leftist, do not trust corporate media. Can’t trust them, they’re not trustworthy. They will lie. They will smear, and then they just move on to the next target and think that they’re going to be able to get away with it.”
“They’re attacking Publix. You know it’s New York corporate media when you come to Florida and attack Publix. It’s one of the most popular brands in the state. It would have been malpractice to cut Publix out of assisting.”
“You ain’t getting away with it here, OK? You come down to our state and you try to smear people, you know, we’re going to bite back and we’re gonna hold you accountable. This is not over by any stretch of the imagination.”
60 Minutes (worth of lies) reported Gov.DeSantis engaged in a “pay for play” scheme with Publix
Democrat Palm Beach County Mayor Dave Kerner described the 60 Minutes as “intentionally false”
“Our residents, like all Americans, are tired. And the media is making it worse. They are hellbent on dividing us for cheap views and clicks. 60 Minutes should be ashamed.”
"I watched the 60 Minutes segment on Palm Beach County last night and feel compelled to issue this statement. The reporting 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 [sic] declined. 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.
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."
