President Trump intentionally breaches his Agreement with 60 Minutes
He can't keep getting away with this! I mean this is 60 Minutes he disrespected. This is the same show that had hosted the most respected Journalist in the world, Dan Rather.

Thank You CNN for bringing this to our attention.

"CBS News calls out White House for breaking agreement and posting Trump's '60 Minutes' interview online

New York (CNN Business)CBS News on Thursday called out the White House for violating an agreement it had with the network and posting President Trump's full "60 Minutes" interview online ahead of its Sunday air date.

"The White House's unprecedented decision to disregard their agreement with CBS News and release their footage will not deter '60 Minutes' from providing its full, fair and contextual reporting which presidents have participated in for decades," CBS News said in a statement.

Trump posted the 38-minute interview on Facebook after spending days threatening to do so and lashing out at correspondent Lesley Stahl, who conducted the interview at the White House Tuesday. He later also posted Stahl's interview with Vice President Mike Pence.

CBS News has said the White House recorded the interview alongside the network, but agreed only to use the footage for archival purposes. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the agreement.

The President claimed in his Thursday Facebook post that the full video revealed "bias, hatred and rudeness" on Stahl's part. But the footage revealed no such thing, only showing Stahl asking firm questions about the coronavirus and other topics.

CBS News noted in its statement that "60 Minutes" is "widely respected for bringing its hallmark fairness, deep reporting and informative context to viewers each week."

"The President on Tuesday taunted Stahl by posting a video of her on Twitter without a mask."

I have not watched 60 Minutes in decades. As far as I am concerned - they are irrelevant.

I mean, we’ll find out in a few weeks if he is getting away with this. I have no ill will towards the president, but it is pretty disrespectful and unprofessional and is exactly the kind of behavior that has half the country or more voting against him. Just more fuel for their fire and completely unnecessary.

When i think 60 Minutes, “ hallmark fairness” is not exactly what comes to mind.

I watched the Coach O 60 minutes and the entire thing could have been summed up by saying “orange man bad”

She claimed that it could not be verified that Obama admin spied on his campaign.


How deep do they think their reporting is? They can eat shite if they want to deliberately lie like that.

Yeah, they've never been caught creatively editing interviews to create a false narrative.

Because he fought what was going to be a hit piece by revealing the entire truth and not allowing them to spin it?

Literally everything he does is fuel for their fire. I'd much rather have a President who fights back and doesn't take it lying down.

When MAD magazine did a spoof of 60 Minutes over 40 years ago they referred to Mike Wallace as "Mike Malice".

They did sometimes expose things but they have been creatively editing for decades.
