>> shannon: "60 minutes" is pushing back tonight against the firestorm of criticism of the program is getting in response to sunday night's report on governor ron desantis vaccine rollout in florida. and even democrats in the sunshine state calling out cbs premier news program. today, for over 50 years the reports reported by "60 minutes" with strong reactions for the story sunday night. let's dig into the controversy tonight. fox news senior political analyst brit hume. always good to see you. >> thank you, shannon, good to see you. >> a couple of things in the statement, first of all the facts reported by "60 minutes" and that's an important point but strong reaction. but is that what the news program should be about? >> it seems to me that what i think it is perfectly fine, the news programming does stir strong debate and reaction. there is nothing unusual about that. what is unusual about this is what they put on the air is an
9:46 pm
unbalanced presentation about ron desantis and his performance in the covid vaccine situation, especially with regards with a very large grocery chain into state with distribution to the vaccines. talking specifically about public safety, 800 stores here and most of them have pharmacies. where people accustomed to get flu shots and the like. it is a perfectly reasonable thing to use them. the reasons, he had read good reasons for doing so which were not fully accounted for in the "60 minutes" presentation or presentation of his side of the story. >> shannon: we've had democrats from florida come forward and say that this is a total misrepresentation. either they offered information cbs did not take from them or mischaracterize but could there be a potential legal issues? do you think the governor would consider a lawsuit? do you think "60 minutes" will acknowledge that there was any, you know, activity in editing this thing? >> well, i doubt it.
9:47 pm
so far their attitude is we are "60 minutes." we've been doing this a long time, go away. it speaks for it so. it does speak for itself. what it says is not flattering come in my judgment. "60 minutes" editorial processes. and i think viewers and readers across the country are finding out about this and will make up their own minds. i think a lot of them will think that "60 minutes" did a shoddy job here at best. >> shannon: you have been subject yourself to a bit of a fact-check. urea mike were referred to president biden as words and politifact says this, the word came out which one expert said pejorative often used by people with dementia. dementia has difficulty independently carrying out daily life functions. the experts we spoke to said the 18 does not exhibit this problem. would you like to respond, brit? >> i didn't say he had dementia. if you look see now in the
9:48 pm
dictionary and i would encourage anybody to do, exhibiting the signs of old age. and exhibiting them myself and i'm the same age he is, so we biden. he has the senior moments where he loses a train of thought in the middle of sentence and so on. it has happened over and over again throughout the campaign and some extent during his presidency. so yes, i think he is senile and i think it is obvious. >> shannon: okay, to that point, let's move on to a "new york times" review on twitter have noted some of the reporting especially with the respect of georgia, you said it was, you know, essentially advocacy that was "something else as analysis." how worry are you about mainstream analysis and break down stories and a way that is fair for people so they know with the facts for example whath a georgia law? >> what worries me, shannon and new business model and play here. back in the day and not so terribly long ago "the new york times" a major news outlets had biased, liberal
9:49 pm
reporters on their staff but they were disciplined to present the news in a balanced way. to be neutral in their coverage. i think under the new business model, they don't think that is the way they want to do it anymore. the country is large enough and liberal population big enough that a publication like the times relies heavily on people who subscribe online, which broadens the potential audience way outside the confines of the new york area. it's always been a national newspaper and now more so than ever. "the new york times" thinks the kind of advocacy journal they regularly practice on the news pages sells, works well, they are doing well financially. i believe they are doing well financially and therefore, i'm concerned the old neutral coverage which i thought was not only good business back in the base but also the right thing to do, i'm afraid that model is out the window. >> shannon: well when twitter and other groups are fact-checking or putting labels on so many things out there

these days, are you surprised there is no label on something like this that could be misleading to readers? do you think twitter has the stomach quickly for flagging themes from "the new york times" or the mainstream media? >> i will say as long as it is selling in the paper is doing well and the journalist are doing what they manifested and want to do which is to push a point of view and pick one political side over the other, they will keep doing it. the fact they ought to label these things more honestly but they don't. i don't expect them to do it anytime soon unless the pressure becomes enormous and a lot of readership. but i think what has happened so far by and large they have gained readership. >> shannon: brit hume, always great to have your analysis. thank you for dropping in. >> thank you, shannon. >> shannon: a compassionate restaurant owner is given a criminal a second chance. good news before we say good night.
