The CBS news affiliate in Alaska lets its mask slip:
One lesson sure to be learned from this year’s midterms is that it’s important to make sure you have properly hung up your phone. Yesterday members of a CBS affiliate crew in Alaska were accidentally caught on a answering machine discussing finding negative stories about Joe Miller to cover in the final days of his campaign.
Apparently it was newsworthy to search gleefully for and publicize "registered sex offenders" among the volunteers on Joe Wilson's campaign. Y'ask me, that is unprincipled and anti-social badness at more than level. It would be bad enough coming from the enemy camp, but from CBS? Oh, wait.
Sorry to ruin your tagline--and one of Sarah's countless tweeter rants-- but the station is not owned by CBS. It's owned by Alaska Broadcasting (see uodate). Ready, fire, aim....
Golly. "Corrupt bastards" in Alaska! What a novelty. Not.
KTVA carries CBS news. That's not the same as being an affiliate, but it's still a significant connection. CBS is correct that they didn't have anything to do with this directly. They are obscuring the fact that they have a news relationship with this station.
Anonymous, I'll bet you knew that but left it out. Almost as if you were trying to tell only one side of the story.
Or, sigh, you may be so far gone that you accept what you want to hear as obviously true and start firing.
I know, anon, Joe Miller looks to be at the top of the food chain when it comes to corrupt.
His righteous indignation is like, "Gambling, gambling, Major Strasser, round up the usual suspects."
Look it up, peeps.
I watched just now, the interview by Sarah Palin on FOX NEWS with Wallace. I really found Mrs. Palin's offering terribly lackluster once again.
Her excuses for Miller and O'Donnell dodged the questions. It was rather embarrassing.
Sarah says she is devoted to time tested true principles. Uh huh - HELLO? ALWAYS going to support the Conservative Candidate in the race? This was her excuse for the O'Donnell 'mistake' (* which even borrows again from Rush with "give it a college try"). But Mrs. Palins devotion to pure Conservatives in these latest Primaries are not consistent. Mr. Wallace could have just asked Sarah Palin about her recent endorsement of the rather lackluster Maverick in Arizona - clearly NOT the true Conservative in the race. Principles might be just a slogan for Mrs. Palin. She really looks like a politician here.
We have a huge fashion on Our side, and Mrs. Palin is probably playing it rich.
Also, Mrs. Palin's rush to bash the GOP in the case of Murkowski really stinks. The Palin Franchise was brutal - personal with Murkowski. Now they are upset someone else is playing the same kind of bad politics? Her offering is only inviting problems, creating divides with some we may NEED on Our side.
In regards to the tired Democratic Partisans pretending to be Journalists - seeking to debase Mr. Miller, we expect this. Just par for the course with pathetic Democrats. It seems the Palin Franchise is hyping the matter because Miller is in trouble. It is close to a typical Oct. surprise.
It is a bit hypocritical, as I remember the emails, etc., during that ugly primary in Alaksa, which only encouraged Murkowski to create trouble. It was especially ugly-personal from the Tea Party Express and the Palin Franchise. Growing opposition and enemies foolishly is not conservatism.
Sarah Palin also made another odd claim, that her TV program is not a REALITY show. This is not genuine either. Her referencing the hero Ronald Reagan was also quite regretful. Leave the GIPPER out of it, NEVER take him down to for your own petty need. And having a Producer saying, we are going to have Sara and Todd "do something" today for a video shoot, is by definition a "Reality Show".
There is something wrong here.
I think Mrs. Palin is a good American, on the right side of history. But there is a lack of genuine - substance, and the massive hype only makes these problems seem quite larger. If you pretend to be a 'super duper' in the Identity game, you should make certain you are backing up the claim, or it falls terribly short when confronted with reality..
"It is a bit hypocritical, as I remember the emails, etc., during that ugly primary in Alaksa, which only encouraged Murkowski to create trouble. It was especially ugly-personal from the Tea Party Express and the Palin Franchise. Growing opposition and enemies foolishly is not conservatism."
Good one, the "Dressing like that, she was asking for it" defense of Murkowski's actions.
