Smoking Gun: Anchorage journos caught conspiring against Miller

For those who don't believe the Alaska media is in collusion with the Murkowski campaign, here is some compelling evidence. The voices of Anchorage journalists, believed to include those of the news director and assignment editor at CBS affiliate KTVA, have been captured on tape openly discussing ways to fabricate stories about Joe Miller, the Palin-backed GOP candidate for the U.S. Senate. A voice mail message, inadvertently left on the cell phone of Miller campaign spokesperson Randy DeSoto, is the smoking gun:
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.”

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.
Sarah Palin sent the following message about the incident via Twitter:
Corrupt bastards. CBS/media plot against Joe Miller before our Anchorage rally Thurs Kinda'what I've put up w for 2 yrs
She also mentioned it this morning during her appearance on Fox News Sunday. The Miller campaign's news release is here. The Vice President and General manager of KTVA can be contacted by email at

So far, the corrupt Alaska media is ignoring this bombshell of a story.
