Democratic Florida Mayor defends DeSantis: ’60 Minutes should be ashamed’
No peeps you are not dreaming, give your cheek a pinch if you’d like but this is really happening! The wheels are turning and the tide has changed directions, the media is being exposed for their deceit!
Watch How 60 Minutes Deceptively Edited Ron DeSantis’s Full Answer on Publix Vaccination.
Palm Beach County Mayor Dave Kerner, a Democrat, accused CBS’ “60 Minutes” of “intentionally false” reporting for suggesting Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis gave grocery store chain Publix preferable treatment to offer the coronavirus vaccine because of donations to his PAC.
“The reporting was not just based on bad information – it was intentionally false,” Kerner said in a statement on Monday. “I know this because I offered to provide my insight into Palm Beach County’s vaccination efforts and ’60 Minutes’ 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.”
“We have confronted this pandemic for over a year. 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,” Kerner continued, adding that the program left his side of the story out because it “kneecaps their narrative.”
Kerner thanked DeSantis for his work to help Palm Beach County.
