CBS News was not amused when President Trump posted raw footage from his interview with 60 Minutes’ Lesley Stahl, which had been taped on Tuesday for an installment scheduled for Sunday. “The White House’s unprecedented decision to disregard their agreement with CBS News and release their footage will not deter 60 Minutes from providing its full, fair and contextual reporting which presidents have participated in for decades,” said the network. Trump had tweeted on Thursday he was about to post the “takeout” interview, which he cut short, complaining that Stahl was unfair. “Watch her constant interruptions & anger,” tweeted the president. “Compare my full, flowing and ‘magnificently brilliant’ answers to their ‘Qs’.”

Later on Thursday, Trump posted Stahl’s 14-minute interview with Vice President Mike Pence, during which the journalist told Pence he and the president gave “campaign speeches” instead of answering questions. “I think the both of you, there is this kind of anticipation that people in power are held accountable, and they answer questions for the public, not for me. For the public, and I feel you didn’t do that,” Stahl said. “I’m upset.” Pence responded, “Well, Lesley, I appreciate the speech that you just gave, but I answered all your questions, and I’ve spoken about things Americans care about.”

NBC News responded to Fox News host Tucker Carlson “smearing” investigative reporter Brandy Zadrozny during a segment on Wednesday night. After Carlson accused Zadrozny, who has covered disinformation, QAnon, and extremism, of “seeking out personally identifying information about anonymous Trump supporters online,” NBC said, “Over the past several years, journalists from news organizations around the world have put themselves at risk in order to shine a light in the dark corners of society and the Internet – specifically in the realm of conspiracy theories and online extremism… Brandy represents the best of investigative journalism and of NBC News.”

YouTube cut Fox RSNs last month, while FuboTV dropped them in January.
