Anchorage CBS Affiliate Caught On Voicemail Conspiring Against Alaska's GOP Senate Candidate

ktvaEditor’s Note – Any questions on the media being active participants in the political arena?

Not only should these reporters be fired, but criminal charges should be filed.  That’ll give others reason to pause when considering to engage in corrupt practices to aid and abet the far left agenda.

After all, these reportes are using their position and scope of reach to manipulate the electoral process.  It is, in and of itself, campaigning.  How is it any different from an attack ad put out by some stealth 527 group?  At the end of the day, it is a direct assault on the integrity of our elections, and if we cannot assure that, then why do we even bother to participate?

 

Anchorage CBS Affiliate Caught On Voicemail Conspiring Against Alaska’s GOP Senate Candidate

The following voice mail message was inadvertently left on the cell phone of Joe Miller campaign spokesperson Randy DeSoto.

The voices are believed to be those of the news director for CBS Anchorage affiliate KTVA, along with assignment editor Nick McDermott, and other reporters, openly discussing creating, if not fabricating, two stories about Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, Joe Miller.

The following is a transcript of a call recorded after CBS Alaska affiliate KTVA called Joe Miller’s Senate campaign spokesperson. The call failed to disconnect properly. It was later authenticated by McDermott, who sent a text to Randy DeSoto stating, “Damn iPhone… I left you a long message. I thought I hung up. Sorry.”

 

TRANSCRIPT OF KTVA AUDIO FROM OCTOBER 28, 2010
 
FEMALE REPORTER: That’s up to you because you have the
experience but that’s what I would do…I’d wait until you see who
shows up because that indicates we already know something…
 
[Laughter]
 
[INAUDIBLE]
 
FEMALE REPORTER: Child molesters…
 
MALE REPORTER: Oh yes…Joe Miller’s…uh…get a list of
people/campaign workers which one’s the molester
 
[INAUDIBLE]
 
FEMALE VOICE: You know that of all the people that will show up
tonight, at least  one of them will be a registered sex offender.
 
[Laughter]
 
MALE REPORTER: We need to find that one person…
 
[INAUDIBLE]
 
FEMALE REPORTER: The one thing we can do is ….we won’t know….we won’t
know but if there is any sort of chaos whatsoever we can
put out a twitter/facebook alert: saying what the… ‘Hey Joe
Miller punched at rally.’
 
 FEMALE REPORTER: Kinda like Rand Paul…I like that.
 
 [Laughter]

FEMALE REPORTER: That’s a good one.
 
  

Clearly the reporters were conspiring to set up some type of smear of Joe Miller. With glee, they even cite a recent controversy over an incident involving the Rand Paul campaign, while discussing how they would spread the story via social media after whatever incident they had in mind came off. It also brings to mind another recent episode that ended with Jerry Brown’s California gubernatorial campaign being caught up in controversy when someone from Brown’s camp called Brown’s opponent, Republican Meg Whitman, a “whore.”

 

This calls into serious question what type of campaign coverage CBS’ KTVA has been providing Alaskans all along, given their reporters’ willingness to conspire against Miller.
