Barrel Strength - Over-Proof Opinion, Smoothly Aged Insight

The insufferable arrogance of Scott Pelley

Scott Pelley is the senior news anchor for CBS TV. He was recently awarded the Fred Friendly First Amendment Award from Quinnipiac University. In his acceptance speech, Pelley says that the problem with the Internet is that it is spreading gossip and  rumours, while “journalists”, such as himself, are spreading “news”.

Read about him being trashed here in PJ Media by Tom Blumer.

Pelley’s speech is here; his part begins after 14 minutes in. “Amateur journalists became digital vigilantes” after the Boston bombings by the Tsarnaev jihadists. Shame, shame!
