Second debate moderator Scully suspended by C-SPAN for lying about Twitter hack

He takes full repsonsibilitiy. But, uh, also blames conservative websites.

Accordin to the Washington Examiner:

C-SPAN indefinitely suspended political editor Steve Scully after he admitted to lying about the hacking of his social media accounts.

The debacle began on Oct. 8 when Scully appeared to tweet a message accidentally that was meant for former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

In the tweet, he asked for advice on whether he should “respond to” President Trump’s attacks on him, but after facing criticism, Scully claimed that his Twitter account had been hacked. The news of his suspension, which was announced on Thursday, came on the same day that he was supposed to moderate the second presidential debate between Joe Biden and Trump.

“I falsely claimed that my Twitter account had been hacked,” he said, according to the Associated Press. “These were both errors in judgment for which I am totally responsible for. I apologize. I ask for their forgiveness as I try to move forward in a moment of reflection and disappointment in myself.”

“For several weeks, I was subjected to relentless criticism on social media and in conservative news outlets regarding my role as moderator for the second presidential debate, including attacks aimed directly at my family,” Scully added. “Out of frustration, I sent a brief tweet addressed to Anthony Scaramucci. The next morning when I saw that this tweet had created a new controversy.”

  1. The free press is supposed to be what keeps our country from flying off the rails. It has become quite the opposite. I fear for the NEAR future of our country.

    Seems the entities who hate freedom have realized they can’t directly take the country, so they took the press first. It’s working.
