CBS Anchor: ‘We Are Getting Big Stories Wrong, Over and Over Again’

Weekly Standard – by Daniel Halper

“Our house is on fire,” said Pelley. The video of Pelley’s speech is courtesy of

“These have been a bad few months for journalism,” he added. “We’re getting the big stories wrong, over and over again.”

The CBS newsreader was quick to take at least partial blame. “Let me take the first arrow: During our coverage of Newtown, I sat on my set and I reported that Nancy Lanza was a teacher at the school. And that her son had attacked her classroom. It’s a hell of a story, but it was dead wrong. Now, I was the managing editor, I made the decision to go ahead with that and I did, and that’s what I said, and I was absolutely wrong. So let me just take the first arrow here.”

And Pelley said the republic relies on the quality of the news business. “Democracies succeed or fail based on their journalism,” said Pelley. “America is strong because its journalism is strong. That’s how democracies work. They’re only as good as the quality of the information that the public possesses. And that is where we come in.”

    Translation: “We’ve been tendering government propaganda as truthful news when, in fact, it’s not”.

  2. Scotty says:

    It’s a game they play called lying for dollars.

    For any informed, INTELLIGENT persons, this is NOT a revelation.

    Quote from this video “it s the words that matter , are they right are they true?”.
    Well why do you keep calling our govt. a democracy ? this not right or true
    You are proving your point though about not getting anything right

    You are a good example of why the MSM (hopefully you can translate) is useless except as a propagnda or advertising tool

    Amd my theme for the day

    They’re making a last-ditch effort here to maintain or restore some of their lost credibility by claiming “we got it wrong” instead of saying “we’ve been caught in too many lies”.
    This is a “limited hang-out”. A confession to errors that avoids an admission of guilt.
    It’s too late to try to pass off your endless intentional lies as “mistakes”. No one believes you anymore.

  6. Inretrospect says:

    The MSM realizes that the public is finally waking-up, and they are trying to distance themselves from their government handlers. Scott Pelley is one of the biggest MSM talking heads spuking biased disinformation. The fact that Pelley admits to being the CBS news editor, makes his speech regarding false journalism, even more ludicrous.
