Don’t worry, folks. Some guy’s brother’s uncle’s cousin’s next-door neighbor’s dog’s mom’s teacher’s best friend’s hamster wrote a letter telling Sharyn Alfonsi he totally dug her hatchet job on DeSantis so that makes what she did AOK.
If only we were joking.
She seems to think this was a good way of ‘defending’ her crappy piece.
Sunday’s @60Minutes ended with @Sharyn_Alfonsi reading comments about her shoddy hit piece on @RonDeSantisFL. She didn’t acknowledge doing anything wrong. “Some viewers, including a retired newsman, applauded the story.” #60Minutes pic.twitter.com/v5qEwT5PXc

Or, and hear us out, she could just admit it was a deliberate hit piece and apologize to DeSantis?

Ahem, not to be THAT person but it’s, ‘C’MON man!’
#SharonAlfonsi is still questioning why on earth the Governor is allowing the largest grocery store chain in all of Florida to give vaccines to Floridians. That should tell you everything you need to know about the complete & utter fall of what was once @60Minutes. @CBSNews

.@Sharyn_Alfonsi Hey, Sharon, I live in Vero Beach FL and I googled "Nick Boryack"…and nothing came back. Nick Boryack is not listed in any records for the Indian River County clerk or property appraiser, either. You sure he exists and isn't a pseudonym or sock puppet…?

You’re trash, Sharon.

Sharon Alfonsi is an absolute disgrace to journalism. She won’t even apologize for her fake news hit piece on @GovRonDeSantis that got exposed. She should be fired or resign.

“One retired newsman said Alfonsi’s hatchet job was outstanding journalism in a note written with 1973 Microsoft Word.”

From New Zealand! Sort of like how her boyfriend is from Canada.
This strikes me as being not journalism.

This is why they are the enemy of the people and deserve that title

Permanent Adios @60Minutes
Your lust for mentally deficient acolytes has been duly noted…

Regarding a deceptively edited video about Governor DeSantis", 60 minutes says….
"These letters from readers show that we're not biased hacks at all"

Congrats to Sharon for deepening the hole she’s in.
It was a misleading hatchet job, and you all know it. Embarrassing.
— Prof B 4Ever (@BProfB) April 12, 2021
It was not shoddy. Shoddy implies lazy, casual indifference or ineptitude.
This was deliberate disinformation.

“One random passerby, my siblings and my dad (AKA landlord) said it was an excellent story and hope I can remain gainfully employed.”

LMAO so "some viewers" is the standard we're going by now? What a joke.
— ??? ?????????? (@dgoldwas) April 12, 2021
What a joke indeed.
And not a funny one.
