Popular author Mike Cernovich, refusing to sit back and be attacked in an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes, went on the offensive and destroyed CBS reporter Scott Pelley on the subject of “fake news.”

Pelley confronted Cernovich with his well-circulated article “Hillary Clinton Has Parkinson’s Disease, Physician Confirms.”

The article shares a “probable diagnosis” given by a board certified anesthesiologist studying Hillary Clinton’s appearance and behavior in public, coming to the conclusion that Hillary Clinton had Parkinson’s disease. Although it wasn’t Parkinson’s disease that she had, Wikileaks emails revealed that Huma Abedin was worried that Hillary had Sinus Thrombosis and was talking about potential medications for the condition.

“You don’t think that’s misleading?” Pelley asked.

Cernovich replied, “no.”

“She had a seizure and froze up walking into her motorcade,” he continued, in reference to the video which shows Hillary Clinton stumbling while leaving the 9/11 memorial in September.

“Well, she had pneumonia, I mean,” Pelley stated.

“How do you know?” Cernovich retorted. “Who told you that?”

“Well, the campaign told us that,” Pelley replied,

“Why would you trust the campaign?” Cernovich questioned.

In that moment Cernovich exposed the problem with mainstream journalists – they believe what they are told rather than question and dig like real journalists should.

Scott Pelley then proceeded to move on to his next question.
