No Question Now. '60 Minutes' is Deliberate Right-Wing Propaganda. [View all]

Last edited Mon Dec 16, 2013, 04:52 PM - Edit history (8)

Two pro-NSA, anti-Snowden segments in a row.

@GregMitch: John Miller has been propagandist for FBI/police/CIA for years.

@apblake: 60 Minutes journalist tasked to report on the NSA used to work for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. So there's that.

@ggreenwald: 60 Minutes journalism: former DNI official & FBI spokesman - soon to be NYPD official - "interviews" NSA chief http://t.co/wvEGO9ducb

@MicahZenko Remarkable how media outlets allow US govt officials to defend policies w/out challenge, no matter who is in the WH

@mattblaze I'm concerned 60 Minutes may be depleting the strategic softball reserve with its NSA questions.

@ggreenwald: He's against mass, suspicionless surveillance RT @AriMelber NSA "Snowden task force" sent team to Hawaii...trying to understand his psyche.

@attackerman NSA tells 60 Mins that Snowden cheated on tests, etc, beating NSA vetting.

@shaneharris: This 60 Minutes report on NSA has gone from one-sided to misleading. No critics? No skeptics to question the cyber Armageddon claims?

@dangillmor: Hey, young people: Believe it or not, "60 Minutes" once stood for solid, deep, important journalism. I know, that sounds absurd now.

@tnyCloseRead Quick pivot on @60minutes from Snowden character-trashing to how NSA will save us all from cyber attacks...

@MicahZenko: That was embarrassing for 60 Minutes: Two public relations segments for the NSA. Worse than bogus Amazon drone video.


Followed by a segment on how Egyption Copts (Christians) are being abused by Muslims and the Muslim Brotherhood (which is true as far as it goes, but lots of different groups are being abused in Egypt). This after the false Benghazi story debacle, the simple-minded disability fraud segment, and the Jeff Bezos Amazon commercial. 60 Minutes of facsimile Fox News.
