That’s the story, is it? That DeSantis is “seizing” on CBS’s world-class dishonesty? The issue here is his reaction to being so brazenly lied about? The need-to-know précis is that he’s annoyed by the press’s penchant for deliberately spreading baseless conspiracy theories? That he might “bash” those who did it? That he’s been accorded a “juicy chance” to highlight bad behavior?
Just look at that “Why it matters” summary. Evidently, it is the considered opinion of Axios that what “matters” here is not that CBS’s flagship “news” show has exhibited such unyieldingly corruption that it has been called out as such by prominent Democrats, but that CBS’s egregious conduct has presented its victim with “a political gift.”
