KTVA has been caught trying to smear Joe Miller.
Boycott the basturds and their sponsors, and their parent MSM, CBS (aka Communist Broadcasting Society).
http://bigjournalism.com/pjsalvatore/2010/10/...
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.”
Audio KTVA –
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.
Here is the transcript as reported by the LA Times.

I would say that is unbiased "journalism" , if you were a Chi-Com or a Russian. Problem is that is CBS/Channel -11 Anchorage, and this IS AMERICA.

Republicans had already taken your rights away. What makes you think that every American agrees with what you claim as rights? When Republicans make corporations more important than citizens then my rights are diminished.

The Last Templar, they are also the corps that keep middle class poor, and poorer. CEO's making bonus checks of tens of millions of dollars while workers barely can keep up with the cost of living. Economics works in a circular motion. What pays the execs salaries is the spending power of the little guy. Listen to guys like Ron Paul and Ralph Nader and Bill Moyers regarding corporate fascism.

Wake up America!

Great points, but if the Republicans win the next election we should give the Republicans all the power and let them fail without being able to blame the Democrats.
The way I see it, the Senate race will split the votes three ways. I hope the Democrat wins but suspect that Miller and Murkowski will be tied which should call for a runoff election. Not sure this is the law; runoff election. If there is a runoff election the Democrats will vote for Murkowski.
Hi, what happened was sort of like an instant runoff, because the polls were indicating that the Democrat was not going to be able to win, so some Democrats voted for Lisa, to be voting against Palin for one thing. Also to vote against Miller. And I think partly to vote against the corrupt outside money pouring into the state as a result of the horrible Citizens United decision of the Supreme Court.

Good for Alaska voters who voted for either Lisa or the Democrat. And my congratultions to realistic Democrats who supported Lisa. From what I saw on cspan, the way she conducted herself looked very democratic with a small d. I have watched her on cspan for years, especially in her committee work. She has seemed to be listening carefully at hearings, and then asking good questions. Her whole demeaner, when compared with Palin, is so strikingly different. None of the self-promoting pandering to idiots.

Palin is an old fashioned demagogue. Appealing to the worst in people, and to the worst people. She is so bad that if men like her just out of lust, that is probably the best reason for supporting her.

It is possible that her victory, and that of Lincoln Chafee in R I, sent a message counter to the tea party message. Tea party is trying to intimidate all moderate Republicans, and Democrats. It is ridinig high. People should consider that the victory of Rand Paul was partly linked to the popularity of Ron Paul, not to the tea party. Also Conway goofed badly at the end, the Aqua Buddha thing looked like a desperation move of a loser. Rubio is not just a tea party guy, he is an experienced Republican establishment politician in Florida. Haley is the most beautiful Republican woman I ever saw, and she barely won even then, in S C.
There was an anti incumbent wave because of the economy. The media has hyped the tea party too much. They are responsible for the losses in Delaware, where Castle would have won, and also in Colorado and Nevada, where none of the above might have won.

The people who lost the election for the Democrats were those who did not vote in 2010, who had voted for Obama in 2008 by indulging in magical thinking, that too much could be expected of him. The fall off in the black vote, and the youth vote, and others who had supported Obama, and who should be supporting the Democratic policies to regulate greedy banks and corporations, was mainly responsible for the losses.

If there is no credible Democratic challenger to Obama in 2012, I can see a good reason for any person who has strong doubts about the AfPak war, to vote for Ron Paul in the Iowa caucuses. People in our state can change registration to participate in the caucus of either party. And we are still first in the nation. Many Republicans and Independents changed their registration to come to Democratic caucuses and vote for Obama. I do not see anyone other than Paul who might run as an antiwar candidate in the 3020 caucuses and primaries. Now we will see what he is made of - assuming his health is OK - and what his socalled supproters are OK. If he is merely a true believer in freemarket economics to the extreme, he can sit back and let the other true believers in laissez faire run against each other. But if he means it that the wars, and military bases and adventures in too many places in the world, are a major cause of our problems, he is the only one who can make that case and attract a significant vote, including his longtime supporters, and a variety of persons who are sick of the war, and do not think we can accomplish what the ambitious ones want to accomplish, which looks suspiciously like nationbuilding. Nation building of another nation, when ours is the one that needs building and restoration. Nation building in terms of buildings that would probably soon by blown up by terrorists, and political arrangements that could be metaphorically blown up too, even after all our efforts.

If Obama morphs into LBJ, with his war wasting the money that should be spent in America, there should be a challenger similar to Gene McCarthy in l968. Kucinich or Feingold would be the most likely ones to dare to do so on the war issue. Both should know that they could not defeat Obama, and then go on to win an election, however. Then it could be a matter of someone else coming in, much as Bobby Kennedy did after Mccarthy exposed the weakness of LBJ. If it were not for age, health, and impeachment, I would think the best one would be Bill Clinton, and not even Hillary. Otherwise, I see no likely Democrat to defeat both Obama in a primary (if he is "knee deep in the big muddy of the AfPak war, and escalates instead of getting out). So for Iowa Democrats, a caucus cross over to vote for Ron Paul, could add to the antiwar Republican and Independent vote for him, by others fed up with spending so much money on war, that does not seem to be winnable.

If there were still a draft, things would be different now, but the burden of the war is being loaded on the voluntary milatary, and their families. And on the entire economy, though no one in either party is loud enough in saying so.
