Walter Cronkite is dead and so is the reputation of CBS News



The Biden mafiosi have become the third rail at CBS News.

Paramount Global, which owns CBS News, recently laid off 800 people, including Catherine Herridge, as award winning investigative reporter. At CBS, she was the only reporter looking into the Hunter Bident story.

What makes this intriguing is CBS forced Herridge to surrender her confidential materials:

Jonathan Turley:

There is trouble brewing at Black Rock, the headquarters of CBS, after the firing of Catherine Herridge, an acclaimed investigative reporter. Many of us were shocked after Herridge was included in layoffs this month, but those concerns have increased after CBS officials took the unusual step of seizing her files, computers and records, including information on privileged sources.

The position of CBS has alarmed many, including the union, as an attack on free press principles by one of the nation’s most esteemed press organizations.

I have spoken confidentially with current and former CBS employees who have stated that they could not recall the company ever taking such a step before. One former CBS journalist said that many employees “are confused why [Herridge] was laid off, as one of the correspondents who broke news regularly and did a lot of original reporting.”

That has led to concerns about the source of the pressure. He added that he had never seen a seizure of records from a departing journalist, and that the move had sent a “chilling signal” in the ranks of CBS.

The timing of Herridge’s termination immediately raised suspicions in Washington. She was pursuing stories that were unwelcomed by the Biden White House and many Democratic powerhouses, including the Hur report on Joe Biden’s diminished mental capacity, the Biden corruption scandal and the Hunter Biden laptop. She continued to pursue these stories despite reports of pushback from CBS executives, including CBS News President Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews.

This looks suspicious. I’ve worked at two newspapers, a wire service and a syndicated columnist. I also spent 23 years at ABC News. When I left those jobs, none of those outlets asked for my files. I’ve never heard of this happening.

Jonathan Turley again:

Famed CBS anchor Walter Cronkite once said “our job is only to hold up the mirror — to tell and show the public what has happened.” It now appears that CBS itself will have to look into that mirror and answer some questions of what happened to the confidential records of Catherine Herridge.

CBS has become an arm of the DNC and the deep state. Walter Cronkite is dead and so is the reputation of CBS News

All of the leftist Ministry of Propaganda is a function of the DNC and they seek to ruin and destroy anyone that isn’t a party to it.

But, remember: there is no government censorship anywhere ever.

This is what she gets for not using “reliable” or “sources familiar with” aka CIA.

See B.S. News the Viet Cong just lost its Chief Propagandists Wally Cronkite too bad but it looks like he has paid the price for his Treason
