Drew Taylor / The Wrap:CBS' 60 Minutes faces backlash after it promoted an interview by Lesley Stahl of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, scheduled to be broadcast this Sunday — The CBS news magazine profiles the congresswoman who questioned whether 9/11 happened and defended the events of Jan. 6 in an upcoming interview@60minutes: Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, nicknamed MTG, isn't afraid to share her opinions, no matter how intense and in-your-face they are. She sits down with Lesley Stahl this Sunday on 60 Minutes. https://60minutes.com/ https://twitter.com/...Sherrilyn Ifill / @sifill_: “Intense and in-your-face.” How about unhinged and toxic? https://twitter.com/...@anandwrites: So many of us in the media were trained to find these seemingly neutral ways of framing extreme ideas. “Intense,” “in-your-face.” But this training doesn't work for the moment we're in. These aren't intense opinions. They're a recipe for the end of liberal democracy. https://twitter.com/...Denver Riggleman / @repriggleman: I was the first to see Greene's texts to Mark Meadows...pure batshittery Platforming a woman who called for “Marshall” law, believes in Q, a 9/11 Truther, thought space lasers started a fire, believes in broken algorithms, is a FBI and Antifa false-flagger and said Pelosi was... https://twitter.com/...Victor Shi / @victorshi2020: & for those who don't believe it's real, here. Even just the language in this Tweet is revolting. Words like “isn't afraid” make her seem like she's courageous and brave when she isn't. They make her actions sound justified when they aren't. This is terrible. Shame on CBS. https://twitter.com/...Mark Jacob / @markjacob16: The decision by “60 Minutes” to profile Marjorie Taylor Greene shows that CBS is as desperate for attention and as eager to mainstream insanity as she is. https://twitter.com/...Bryan Behar / @bryanbehar: Sorry @60Minutes. Being a “virulent anti-semite who wants to violently destroy our Union” isn't the same thing as being “opinionated.” https://twitter.com/...Jemele Hill / @jemelehill: There's nothing wrong with interviewing and profiling controversial, even despicable people, but this framing is shit. There's also a fine line between engaging provocative people and platforming stupid. This is platforming stupid. https://twitter.com/...Kaivan Shroff / @kaivanshroff: It's not that the media didn't learn anything from 2016. It's that they learned exactly how dangerous repackaging extremists like this is — and they've decided to go all in. Shame on 60 Minutes. This will permanently tarnish the brand and it should. https://twitter.com/...Victoria Brownworth / @vabvox: Why are you giving the respected platform of @60Minutes to a seditionist white supremacist antiSemitic racist homophobic transphobic hater who has literally called for civil war, accused Jews of manipulating the criminal justice system and attacked children? WHY? https://twitter.com/...
There they go again! Those Liberal Media normalizing and amplifying regular old totally normal Rightwingers!
