Obama Bumkisser Scott Pelley Ignores Latest State Department Scandal, Calls NY Post and Has Meltdown

Posted by on Jun 12, 2013 at 9:01 am

He’s a serious journalist or something. He’ll even tell you so if you call for comment.

CBS anchor Scott Pelley was furious after John Miller’s scoop about the State Department sex scandal broke not on his “CBS Evening News,” but early Monday on “This Morning” hosted by Charlie Rose, Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell, network sources tell Page Six

There was no mention of the State Department story on “The CBS Evening News” Monday night — and sources say it was because Pelley and his EP, Pat Shevlin, were peeved. Pelley strongly denies this, insisting, there was simply “not enough time” on his broadcast to cover the story.

No enough time, huh? Another Obama State Department scandal breaks out and there’s not enough time? Really? Well, after this hissyfit, he even called a  Post reporter  and went nuts.

Pelley called Page Six last night to vehemently deny he had a meltdown — then promptly went into a meltdown. He roared, “That allegation is false. How long have you been a journalist? You wouldn’t last ten seconds at CBS News. This is not how reporters do their job. You called my publicist but not me in my office?”

So someone from the Post wouldn’t last 10 seconds at CBS? Really? A place where they ignore Obama’s scandals and make up stories?

    You wouldn’t last ten seconds at CBS News.

    Two things:

    1. That’s what she said (about the TANG memo).
    2. Why the fuck does this “serious journolist” have a publicist?

    Scott needs to learn the first rule of holes but he is too smart for that.

    Let’s start using the accurate word ‘propagandist’ for these people.

    He was a dickbag in Baghdad. I escorted him around the troops. Serious prima donna. Like we owed him something.

    Should have shoved him out of the helo somewhere over Kirkuk…

    He covered this story in detail last night.

    I am a conservative but I really feel Pelly is generally a fair news presenter. I also watch Bret Bair on Fox News. Watching both gives me a good perspective.

    I have more respect for addled, lice-infested crack whores with several STDs than any “journalists” at CBS or any of the other “news” organizations.

    Why would a self-proclaimed journalist need a publicist?

    That admission speaks volumes.
