Desperation and media bias…

Breibart’s BigGovernment blog has an interesting piece on how members of the Alaska MSM got caught trying to fake another scandal that would of course end up hurting a republican. And the WSJ has its own takedown of the whole sordid affair. The culprits? Well, wouldn’t you be absolutely surprised out find out they are a couple of fine outstanding members of the leftist Lame Stream Media.

Employees at a CBS affiliate in Anchorage left an accidental voicemail for an aide to GOP Senate candidate Joe Miller in which they discussed and laughed about the possibility of reporting on the appearance of sex offenders at a Miller rally. And they chatted about responding with a Twitter alert to “any sort of chaos whatsoever” including the candidate being “punched.”

The call took place during a KTVA staff meeting to plan coverage of that evening’s Miller rally in downtown Anchorage.

Mr. Miller is opposed by fellow Republican Lisa Murkowski, who is running as a write-in candidate after being defeated by Mr. Miller in the August primary, and Democrat Scott McAdams. Mr. Miller’s campaign released the recording over the weekend, saying that KTVA reporters were heard “creating, if not fabricating, two stories” about Mr. Miller.

I know. I am not surprised. These people on the left are so panicked about the Tea Party right now that they are willing to pull a stunt like this, even if in the end in a place like Alaska, it would mean that the establishment republican wins. Face it. Libs stand no chance in Alaska where people know better than to trust big government. I guess if I was worried about the future of what I believe in and felt as threatened as they do, and I was a scumbag too I should add, I would go for something like this.

Of course, the LSM stooges are spinning as hard as they can to pretend nothing bad happened here and that it is all, to use a Clinton spoof, a misreading of the facts. As in what is really the meaning of the word “is”, or some such nonsense. It’s not working even if the MSM is keeping mum on the story. They are all dreaming big. Well, keep dreaming.
