Moderator For Second Presidential Debate Caught Tweeting Anti-Trump Bias – Claims His Account Was Hacked

C-SPAN reporter Steve Scully, the moderator for the second debate, was already facing scrutiny from conservatives because he actually worked for Joe Biden at one point.

This week, things got even worse for him when he was caught talking to anti-Trumper Anthony Scaramucci on Twitter.

After this started appearing in news reports, Scully claimed that his Twitter account had been hacked.

To make matters even worse, he has a history of claiming his account was hacked.

However, resurfaced tweets show that Scully has a history of blaming hackers for his social media posts.

The “Washington Journal” host appeared to reach out to the former White House communications director, who has become a vocal supporter of Joe Biden, in the now-deleted tweet that read: “@Scaramucci should I respond to trump.”

Both the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) and C-SPAN have issued statements claiming Scully didn’t actually send that tweet.

C-SPAN’s statement said Scully “did not originate the tweet,” adding that the CPD was investigating the incident “with the help of authorities,” who were unidentified. Scully himself did not immediately comment.

However, critics who remain skeptical of Scully’s “hack” claim dug up old tweets showing him blaming hackers for other tweets that were made on his account.

The tweet below shows screen caps from Scully repeatedly claiming his account was hacked:

C-SPAN actually stood by this nonsense about his account being hacked:

As a result of all of this, the second debate has been completely canceled.

What a ridiculous mess, and what an embarrassment for the media.
