For days the media has been calling on President-elect Donald Trump to condemn alleged hate crimes being committed by his supporters against minorities in the wake of his presidency.
Using unverified accusations on Twitter as "journalism" has also become a theme. https://t.co/sQGTUvlACQ— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) November 11, 2016
During a pre-taped interview with 60-Minutes, which aired Sunday night but was filmed on Friday, President-elect Trump did in fact tell supporters to "stop it." Instead of producing the clip of him saying so to calm fears and tensions, 60-Minutes sat on it for two days.
Conservative friend of mine asks why @60Minutes didn't release clip of Trump telling supporters NOT to incite violence when intv taped Fri— Garrett Haake (@GarrettHaake) November 14, 2016
When asked about the decision to hold the tape, this was the response.
Meanwhile, voices demanding President Obama call for an end to the violent riots against the democratic election of Trump are hard to find.
