CBS News had a chance to deliver a truly incredible story to the American public, but its flagship news program 60 Minutes balked after Barack Obama’s White House intervened, according to shocking details in the new Deep State book PAINE: How We Dismantled the FBI in Our Pajamas.
“The network did not want the story to interfere with the election,” one CBS News source said. “Someone at the network, someone up very high, shared nondisclosures with Obama administration officials.”
The documents detailed testimony obtained by CBS producers — from civilian and government sources — revealing that Osama bin Laden was hiding out in Iran for years after 9/11 and operating al-Qaeda, according to revelations in the new Deep State book PAINE: How We Dismantled the FBI in Our Pajamas.
That means CBS News executives gave Obama’s White House a heads up about the story and it was shut down in late 2010 and early 2011 while Obama was gearing up for his 2012 re-election campaign. This is the same 60 Minutes and CBS News that has questioned President Trump’s credibility.
CBS’ 60 Minutes walked away from the story, potentially one of the biggest in its history.
“It was spiked,” one network insider confirmed, saying the network walked away from a massive story for political reasons. “Would have been a monster scoop.”
CBS had balked. And no other mainstream media outlet picked up on the breadcrumbs which fell off the back of the CBS News truck.
CBS did not return requests for comment.
