Steve Scully Returns to C-SPAN After Confessing to Lying About Twitter Hack

Disgraced Steve Scully is returning to C-SPAN. The network announced in a press release that following a three-month leave Scully will officially be making his return. Scully was previously scheduled to moderate the second presidential debate but was later caught trying to solicit advice on Twitter on “how to handle Trump” from Trump’s adversary Anthony Scaramucci. However, when Scully’s tweet caught attention for its inherent bias he quickly tried to cover up the scandal by claiming his account was hacked. It was not long before Scully came forward and admitted he fabricated the entire hacking story.

In the press release, C-SPAN says that it ultimately decided for Scully to return because “We view October’s events as a singular episode in an otherwise successful 30-year career.”

The Daily Wire reports:

On October 9, C-SPAN said in a statement that Scully did not send the tweet and that law enforcement officials had been contacted over the incident. C-SPAN and Scully faced immediate backlash over the incident as many noted that the entire ordeal was fishy from the start.

A week later, C-SPAN announced that it was suspending Scully because he admitted to lying about the incident. Scully worked for Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the past, posted pictures of himself with Biden online, and made anti-Trump remarks.

Following his suspension from the network, Scully sought to shift blame for his actions on to Trump and right-wing media.

“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 wrote. “This culminated on Thursday, October 8th when I heard President Trump go on national television twice and falsely attack me by name. 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, I falsely claimed that my Twitter account had been hacked.”

Following Scully’s admission to fabricating the story President Trump rightfully slammed him on Twitter.

I guess C-Span does not care if their reporters lie and put out false statements. Remember not to listen or buy anything from them . Hope they go broke ,that’s my opinion

He will fit right in covering Harris/Biden since “embellishing” when writing their life stories is what they do best. If they were republicans it would be called telling lies.

It’s fine for him to be a reporter now because he will treat Biden nicely and his employer will approve. All is right with the Fake News Media again.

I think there will be a lot of so called journalists and opinion makers out of a living. Controlled news from the top is never very interesting and I think the average citizen will never trust news again. Once the trust is gone nothing is news just conjecture.

I figured out 30+ years ago that our so-called “media” LIES to the American people on a daily basis and it is time that everyone else figures that out too…. they are nothing but a PROPAGANDA machine for the Democrat party

I have MORE faith in getting a good deal from a Used Car Salesman than I do in getting the TRUTH from our so-called “media”……

Only in a “Democrat” society would you come to expect a criminal to get their job back. Doesn’t say much for C-Span and its reputation.
