They're on a Tiffany Roll

Well, at least they did not put small charges in gas tanks.
CBS News says an editor made an "audio error" in dubbing the sound of a loud traditional car engine over footage of the much quieter Tesla electric car in a "60 Minutes" story that aired Sunday.
Hey, at least it didn't involved Lara Logan going "vrrooom vrrooom". It hasn't exactly been a great period for the network of the now long dead Morrow and Cronkite.
It's been a rough year at television's most popular newsmagazine, with correspondent Lara Logan still on leave after an internal CBS report questioned her reporting and objectivity on a story about an attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya. Critics also questioned the show's reporting on stories involving the National Security Agency and Amazon.

CBS News is flat-out lying... again.

Why, exactly, was an editor dubbing anything at all into news video, in the first place, except to create a false impression?

Pretty good example of "fuck the public, we work for the advertisers," I'd say.

Wallace sez, "C'mon!"; cut 60 some slack. Bring Logan back so it can compete with Fux News' fauxes! There's VROOM for all.
