No. Title tells you enough.

You read and listen, you decide.

First thing to note: it's Breitbart, who does not exactly have a reputation for accuracy.

Second thing to note: The conversation starts in the middle. Breitbart posting edited tapes again?

Third thing to note: It sounds like two people looking for a sensational story from an event, not some conspiracy.

Classic right wing tactic.. your candidate is drowning, so invent a conspiracy that it is all the media's fault and not that of the fanatical wierdo candidate the GOP elected.

1. Do you have the same opinion of CBS and CNN?
2. The conversation is what it is. CBS reporters looking at how to smear Miller in some way... in a hope it will be picked up by others.
3. See pt. 2.

You're going to look stupid again. Reporters call Miller's campaign, think they hung up... and then started scheming to smear Miller... and it's Miller's fault?????????????????

No more Rioja for you.

No Miller and his supporters look stupid. His campaign is tanking thanks to his wacko opinions and his actions and instead of discussing policy and debating with his opponents he and his followers resort to bringing this out? What on earth, other than try to get sympathy from people like you, does this have to do with the future of the US and policy? Nothing. It is white noise designed to take focus away from the candidate when he needs focus taken away.

More Journolists exposed. Or as Palin accurately calls them... "corrupt bastards".

.

This is sad and agreggious. But do we really expect anything less from cBS? I hope each of those "journalists" lose their jobs.

Well, it's not like cBS doesn't already have a reputation for making up stories about Republicans either though. As far as it not sounding like a conspiracy to find some negative story, maybe you weren't listening to the same thing. I think it was pretty clear. Just further proof that we need to never take things at face value and always ask questions and think critically. It's sad that we can't trust the people at cBS who are supposed to be professional journalists.

Yeah, that's pretty much how I read it.

First it needs to be confirmed that the recording is accurate as it is being conveyed. If it turns out to be true, the reporters on the tape playing this little "create the news" effort should have their asses handed to them.

Geez, I guess The Notso Plum Line forgot to tell the station manager Mr. Bever it was bogus.

KTVA General Manager Jerry Bever says, "It's unfortunate that this recording has happened...

"...the recording is real..." said Bever.

I understand these were graduates of the Dan Rather School of Journolism.

Re: Anchorage CBS Affiliate Caught on Voicemail Conspiring Against Alaska’s GOP Senat


Do you ever get tired of being wrong? I mean, do you ever feel any shame for making statements based on 100% partisanship and 0% fact? Not that this will mean a god damned thing to you, but here's a quote you might be interested in from the GM of the TV station:

KTVA General Manager Jerry Bever says, “It’s unfortunate that this recording has happened. It’s unfortunate because it does not accurately reflect the journalistic standards of our newsroom and the garbled context will no doubt leave more questions than answers.

Do you have any integrity?

KTVA admits that is their people, planning the coverage of Joe Wilson's event. Whatelse is there to say?

BTW, I thought you got your draws in a knot when people attacked the source.

reread the quote

what the manager is saying is the recording did happen, but not in the manner being reflected by what is being reported

So, the journalists from KTVA usually plan to hunt for child molestors at political events? :rofl

A child molester would be big news so while I doubt it would be a priority, I certainly would be open to finding one at a political event ( rating would go through the roof)

When it was pointed out that the station admitted it was their people, pbrauer said that was bs. That's what I was responding to, so you need to reread the quote.

But, if that's not KTVA's SOP, then it's an obvious ploy to ruin Miller's campaign. You might have an argument, if KTVA looked for child mollestors at all political events.

These JournoLists should be sacked. Their manager too.

But, being a CBS affiliate they'll likely win CBS's prized Dan Rather Medal of Valor in Creative Journalism Award and their coveted Dan Rather Medal of Impacting Elections in the Last Second Award, as well as get raises.

Let's not call them journalists because they're not. These are political operatives planning a media covered smear plan and then tactically discussing how they would cover it as "news". This happens all the time I'm sure and not just at little KTVA, but at CNN, MSNBC, NY Times... I think the "journolist" listserv proved empirically many in the media: contributors, so called journalists, editors, columnists, are nothing more than frothy rabid socialist progressives trying to use whatever tools they can to push their agenda and call it "news".

Nothing new here... :shrug:
