C-SPAN Suspends Steve Scully For Lying About Twitter Hack

C-SPAN has suspended Steve Scully indefinitely for falsely claiming his Twitter account was hacked after he posted a message to Anthony Scaramucci, a former Trump aide turned critic. Scully was slated to moderate the now-canceled second presidential debate.

After Trump referred to Scully as a "Never Trumper," Scully sought a defense strategy from Scaramucci. The problem is that he did it publicly by mistake.

“@Scaramucci should I respond to Trump,” Scully tweeted. Once the tweet drew pushback, Scully alleged his account had been hacked.
