C-SPAN Suspends Steve Scully After He Admitted He Lied That His Twitter Account Was Hacked
You knew he was lying. I knew he lying. Our baby knew he was lying (probably). And now it has been confirmed.
C-SPAN suspended Steve Scully, the would-be presidential debate moderator, after Scully finally admitted he lied about his Twitter account being hacked.
Before the presidential debate was to take place, Scully accidentally sent a public message (meant to be private) to Trump-Hater Anthony Scaramucci. Scully asked how he should respond to Trump. Scully later lied, saying his account had been hacked.
Worse still, Frank Fahrenkopf, Chairman of the Commission on Presidential Debates, ran interference for Scully.
Not only has Scully been compromised (I mean, he interned for Biden so no one with a brain thought he might actually be neutral here), but so has the Commission on Presidential Debates.
They even involved the FBI!
Steve Scully notified us that his Twitter account was hacked. CPD reported the apparent hack to the FBI and Twitter, and we understand that the federal authorities and Twitter are looking into the issue.

This is literally the equivalent of our four-year-old telling me someone else ate the brownie as she’s covered in gooey chocolate and crumbs cover her little shirt. But this is a grown man and an entire establishment helped push this nonsense. They think we’re that dumb.
You knew he was lying. I knew he lying. Our baby knew he was lying (probably). And now it has been confirmed.

MUST NOT KNOW!
READ ONLY WHAT I TELL YOU!
“…..claims that Scully’s wife was herself somehow politically connected to the Democrats, and therefore, Scully’s own impartiality was in question.
I don’t know if those claims are true; I’m unable to find anything online about his wife.
But I remember those claims.
He’s now claiming that people talking about his wife’s political affiliation constitutes an “attack on my family” which of course then justifies his lying and falsely reporting a crime….”
Ace of Spades
Wonder how much illegal money Scully has taken
like a Biden?????
Rudy Giuliani: Hunter Biden Violated Foreign Registration Act, For Which Paul Manafort Went to Jail
“How dare they!” Greta Scully thunders to the crowd maliciously “attacking” his family. By, you know, noting his wife’s political affiliations with democrats. Which of course is beyond the pale even if true.
Sez the leftist crowd that attacks conservatives for their spouses’ political affiliations.
Steve Scully’s wife is OFF LIMITS, Nazi scum. As are his children.
Now, we return to our regularly scheduled assaults on Clarence Thomas through his wife Ginni and on Amy Coney Barrett by weaponizing that evil white colonizer’s adopted Haitian daughter and son.
A majority of Democrat voters will never learn this from their news sources, and will continue to believe that Scully’s account was hacked (because they certainly heard that from their news sources) – and that DJT colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election.
I don’t understand the disparate treatment. How is he any worse than the other swamp monsters. Why him and not Chuckie Todd?
“Why him and not Chuck Todd?”
How about “him, Chuck Todd, and all the vermin in the MFM.”
Kirsten Welker took down her social media. No one told her to. But she knew what everyone would find there. Fun fact: leftist Trump hating prof Christine Blasey-Ford did the same thing. A month, maybe two, before she flew to D.C. to lie about Kavanaugh under oath.
Think of the poor democrat base learning they’ve been lied to. Must be a shock!
What next….will they find out quid pro slow joe has been lying about his corruption?
Can’t wait to read their excuses.
They are literally handing Trump fresh topics for every campaign event
This is not Mr. Scully’s first rodeo. He has claimed he was hacked on several previous occasions. Someone should press him about the earlier claims to see if he lied then as well. Why should NPR bring him back after the dust settles? Also, Mr. Fahrenkopf didn’t just run interference for Scully, he flat said the tweet to the Mooch did not originate from Scully. Between Scully, Fahenkopf and the Mooch, the Mooch is the surprising stand-up guy. He said he considered the Scully tweet to be legit (and he was right). The take-aways are no one should support poor NPR and the Commission on Presidential Debates needs to dissolve.
Yup. Fahrenkopf immediately demanded an investigation, not into the veracity of Scully’s claim, but into the identity of the hacker(s).
He’s on CSpan, which has always been funded by money from cable and satellite companies. He isn’t affiliated in any way with NPR, nor is CSpan itself.
This is why I think it being him is a bigger deal than if it was a host from another network. CSpan is supposed to be the place to go to get political coverage in as neutral form as possible; they just broadcast it. Sure, you’ve got the call-in shows but for those the hosts are expected to do their best to keep their views out of the discussion (although you can often tell by their facial expressions and how fast they dump callers as to what they think).
This is a black eye to CSpan’s reputation.
Good catch. I watch C-Span to avoid the political jibber-jabber around hearings and the like. So the take-away (singular) is only to disbanding the Committee
And maybe Brian Lamb to read Scully the riot act.
Just to be clear, at least in my opinion. The fact that Steve Scully is the lying leftist hack we all knew he was when this story broke, plus a conman who convinced third parties to file reports that he knew were false with the FBI and possibly other law enforcement agencies, isn’t the black eye on C-SPAN’s reputation.
It’s the fact this only got him suspended. What do you need to do to get fired at C-SPAN? They suspended him and then expressed confidence in his ability to continue in the same capacity.
“By not being immediately forthcoming to C-SPAN and the Commission about his tweet, he understands that he made a serious mistake. We were very saddened by this news and do not condone his actions. Sarting immediately, we have placed Steve on administrative leave. After some distance from this episode, we believe in his ability to continue to contribute to C-SPAN.”
Alternate, more honest C-SPAN: “Everyone who works here would have lied under the same circumstances just to smear Orange Man Bad. Steve Scully is now a hero around here. So we’re going to reward him with a paid vacation then bring him back because we KNOW Trump supporters are stupid enough to fall for our “social distancing” act. Can you see us waving our middle finger at you. Yes, you, Nazi.
It’s not a black eye. It’s a mortal wound; C-SPAN it turns out is too stupid to know it yet. And it’s entirely self-inflicted.
This proves they have ZERO people in the media who are not partisan hacks.
If they had any, they would have put them forward to moderate the debates. The didn’t, so they don’t.
When is an outright lie “an error in judgement?”
Let me think. Hmm. Hmm.
Oh, I know; it’s when you’re a Democrat and you get caught lying.
Fifty years ago I went to a private boarding school with a strict honor code. If you lied and got caught, you were a gonna. До свидания [Dasvidaniya]. Tweren’t any room for excuses like “error in judgement.”
Scully got what he deserved. He lied. My guess is that he feels no remorse about the act of lying, just remorse that he got caught.
Arrogant, condescending s.o.b.
I don’t expect any better of Kristen Welker. If you listen to NBC News, she always puts a critical anti-Trump spin on everything she reports. But when she’s speaking of Biden, she gives the facts in an approving manner, or with a positive spin.
Who had “Jussie Smollett moderating a presidential debate” on their 2020 bingo card?
Will Jussie be asking questions about sexual preference?
Kemberlee, give your baby a high 5!
There was a day when “journalists” worked hard to appear neutral, and you couldn’t tell how left wing they were. It was an important part of journalistic ethics. Nowadays it’s much more important for them to virtue signal to their fellow leftists and be included in the club.
President Donald J. Trump is breaking them all. Breaking the bidens, breaking the fake debate commission, fake news, fake journalists/democrats (one-and-the-same)… We’re only halfway through October, it’s going to get much worse for the left.
“You knew he was lying. I knew he lying. Our baby knew he was lying (probably). And now it has been confirmed.”
My Magic 8 ball knew he was lying. My dog who has been dead for nearly a year appeared to me in a dream last night. Romeo, the sweetest most honest dog you could ever hope to meet, told me, “You know, Steve Scully is lying.” In my dream I was sitting in the back yard of the house I sold after Romeo died. If my lawn could talk, it would have told me Steve Scully was lying (yes, Romeo could talk).
It was the “Anthony Weiner” tell. Anthony Weiner twisted himself into a pretzel to avoid filing a police report himself. Weiner knew he hadn’t been hacked; the now ex-con and felon and registered sex offender knew who had sent those tweets. The registered sex offender his own damned self. But he went out of his way to get third parties report to law enforcement that his Twitter account had been hacked. They didn’t have the inside knowledge that the account hadn’t been hacked. Unlike Anthony Weiner they were innocent of knowingly filing a false police report.
This was the exact course of action that Steve Scully chose to take. So he didn’t just lie. He conned the CPD into filing a false report to get the FBI involved. Not that it would have taken much to “con” the Commission on Presidential Debates to go along with this obvious lie. Bob Dole let the cat out of the bag. This “non-partisan” commission has 3 Republicans and 3 Democrats. And the Repubs are for all practical purposes Antifa. They hate Trump as much as Steve Scully WHO IS A NEVER TRUMPER (he retweeted David Brooks’ NYT op-ed “No, Not Trump, Not Ever” and repeated the title in his tweet; an obvious endorsement of the sentiment). The CPD, C-SPAN, and all the media firefighters who circled the wagon to vouch for Scully using the same terms the swamp creatures used to vouch for “straight arrows” Eric Holder and James Comey. Which, BTW, immediately convinces me they’re all banging the same $5 meth whore in a dumpster behind a Georgetown liquor store. They couldn’t give a #*&@ that Scully was lying. That fact, like the Russia collusion hoax, wasn’t supposed to escape out into public. But orange man bad, Scully is pure as the driven snow (speaking of snow, Scully needs to wipe his nose after partying with the meth whore), and as CNN’s political analyst and former Bill “I did not have sex with that woman” Clinton’s spokesweasel Joe Lockhart put it, “Anyone who questions him or makes accusations is a damn liar.”
As if the “Anthony Weiner” tell wasn’t sufficient evidence Scully was lying, I give you Scully’s “character witnesses.” I mean, look at the company Scully keeps.
It’s not enough for me to join Twitter. I understand other people have reasons to join Twitter, but I don’t. So if you’re on Twitter, please give media firefighters Joe Lockhart, Sam Stein, Karen Tumulty, Matthew Dowd, Larry Sabato, Brian Stelter, Jim Heath, et al who clutched their pearls when President DJT observed the obvious and called Steve Scully a never trumper, and shouted in their best Greta Thunberg impersonation “How dare you!” the big steaming ration of #*&$ they deserve. Now and until judgement day. Whenever they imagine their opinion about someone’s honesty is worth more than whatever I had to scrape off my shoe earlier before tracking it inside.
Kemberlee, I fathom to guess that your baby would have better mental acuity than Quid Pro Joe.
What did Joe Biden know and when did he forget it?
I’m Joe Biden and I forgot this message…. Vote for me for US Senate 🙂
I’m guessing he only admitted to lying because he was afraid the FBI would prosecute him if he didn’t come clean before they put a lot of resources into pretending to investigate.
At this point, Biden could have an alien burst out of his chest on live TV and I’d barely raise an eyebrow.
I would tune in for that though 🙂
Compared to, say, the ending of Lost, that would be much more satisfying and make way more sense.
Scully still works for the Commission for Presidential Debates though, yes?
Commented here if your not going to be a stand up Leftist then get out of the debate business.
In perfect 2020 form, CSPAN will fire him and the Commission on Debates will hire him onto their Board of Directors
And CNN will give Scully his own talk show.
