Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said on Monday that CBS’s long-running news magazine “60 Minutes” (The Minutes) was promoting his handling of coronavirus vaccine launches that run counter to reality. Political narrative” and notorious.
Disantis said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that in a conversation with reporter Sharyn Alfonsi, his words were “deceptively edited” to portray the state’s role in Publix. The supermarket’s elderly vaccination program is nothing more than to repay corporate political donors.
The Lakeland, Florida-based grocery store also criticized “60 Minutes”, calling the report “absolutely false and offensive.”
The host Tucker Carlson also played Alfonsi’s clips and a complete video of DeSantis’ exchanges at the press conference planned by CBS.
Disantis said his transaction with Publix had nothing to do with six-figure political donations, and several Florida Democrats defended him and confirmed his interpretation of the agreement.
He told Carlson that in Palm Beach County, the focal point of the dispute, the leaders of the democratic town area calculated that 90% of its elderly population lives within 1.5 miles of the mansion.
The eastern half of the county is along the dense I-95 corridor with several Publix locations, while the western end is sparse land.
Disantis said that “60 Minutes” did not mention this important background because of the lack of pre-existing options, his government established a separate and independent village in Paokiki, about 30 miles east of Clewiston. Unique vaccination location, not affiliated with Prix.
“[What’s] What’s lost is that we now vaccinate 3.5 million elderly people. We are the first state to say that we will be the elderly first. We will not follow CDC’s recommendations. The work we have done has worked,” he said.
Criticism of “false narrative” exploded “60 minutes”, this is the advertisement of DESANTIS using PUBLIX in the pay-on-demand vaccine program
“They didn’t want to discuss this issue. Obviously, they edited the background selectively. They tried to act like a conspiracy with Publix.”
“They ignored the fact that I met with the county mayor. The county mayor is a Democrat. He said, “60 minutes” is really fast.” Disantis added, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) The head of state is also a Democrat and defended him in this matter.
“They didn’t tell you that we were doing an African American church [vaccine] Before driving, Publix shot. They didn’t tell you that the hospital will start taking pictures in the third week of December-because this does not match the narrative. They don’t believe the facts. This is a political narrative,” he was angrily.
He accused CBS of not talking to key Palm Beach County officials, even though the Democrats would “destroy their narrative”-especially the appointment of county mayor Dave Kerner (Dave Kerner).

As previously reported by Fox News, Kona also defended DeSantis on this matter.
Host Tucker Carlson speculated that it was only a matter of time before Democrats and the media focused on DeSantis and tried to sabotage him. He was referring to pandemic times, such as California, Michigan, and New York. The best state went into exile-and Florida ushered in an influx of new residents.
“I didn’t watch the show because it was sad to see something like ’60 minutes’ relegation,” the host added.
