Anti-Trump Reporter Scott Pelley IS OUT At CBS Evening News

As we told you back in April, Scott Pelley of CBS News was suffering from plummeting ratings, perhaps because he did nothing but bash Trump every night.

Now he’s out at the CBS evening News.

Scott Pelley out of ‘CBS Evening News’

Scott Pelley is out at “CBS Evening News,” Page Six has exclusively learned.

Sources tell us that ‘Poison Pelley’s’ office was being cleared out on Tuesday while the anchor was away on an assignment for the network’s news magazine “60 Minutes.”

We’re told that he’s being shifted permanently to “60 Minutes.”

Insiders tell us that CBS News president David Rhodes “is making [Pelley] move to ‘60 Minutes,’ ” and that the pair “don’t get on.”

Another TV insider said while Pelley’s ratings have been down, “There’s also been friction between him and [Rhodes].”

Added a source, “[Pelley] was pushed out of the ‘Evening News.’ It’s been coming for a long time. This could have been handled better — [Pelley] is away on a story, and they’re cleaning out his office. It’s not the correct way to treat the face of CBS news.”

No replacement has yet been named, but CBS has a deep bench of anchors who can fill in.

Could we possibly end up with someone worse?
