CBS race baiting fake news as it appeared on air during the 2020 presidential election.[1] The fake "FactCheck.org" attempted to "explain" that such wasn't a misrepresentation because it was only "out of context".[2]

CBS News is a liberal news organization that broadcasts several programs, including The CBS Evening News, 60 Minutes and Face the Nation. CBS News is a division of the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS).

Distorted coverage

  • CBS used a picture from President Trump’s “Latino’s for Trump” event as a manipulative picture to showcase Joe Biden’s Latino outreach effort in Miami.[3]
  • CBS News used footage of the “worst hit” hospital in Bergamo, Italy purporting it to be a report about the coronavirus outbreak in New York.[4]
  • CBS News claimed George W. Bush went AWOL from his National Guard duty during the Vietnam War, but the documents it relied on to make this accusation were later found to be forged. News Anchor Dan Rather was forced into retirement over the scandal.

Anchors and Reporters

  • In the 1950s Edward R. Murrow worked for CBS News and famously criticized Senator Joseph McCarthy.
  • In the 1960s, news anchor Walter Cronkite (the "most trusted man in America") publicly opposed U.S. military support for South Vietnam in the Vietnam War.
  • Bernard Redmont, CBS News Moscow and Paris Bureau Chief during the Vietnam War was a "known Soviet agent." [5]
  • Katie Couric was the first woman to solo-anchor on the weekday evening news of the three traditional U.S. broadcast networks (ABC, CBS and NBC), prior to the announcement of her departure from CBS[6]
