C-SPAN Reinstates Would-Be Debate Moderator Who Falsely Claimed His Anti-Trump Tweet Was the Result of a Hack


C-SPAN has reinstated host Steve Scully, who was suspended by the network after he admitted to lying about his Twitter account being hacked before he was scheduled to moderate the second presidential debate in October.

The Commission on Presidential Debates announced on Oct. 9 it had canceled the debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. The debate was initially reformatted as an all-virtual event, but then the Scully Twitter saga occurred.

Prior to the scheduled debate, Scully’s Twitter account posted a public message to fired former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, which read, ”should I respond to trump.”
