Sarah Palin on Fox News Sunday: We Have Tape of Those “Corrupt Bastards” (CBS affiliate KTVA) In Media Conspiring Against Alaska US Senate Republican Joe Miller
Why we love Sarah Palin … she calls it like we all know it to be … Palin called out on Fox News Sunday this morning with Chris Wallace the partisan, unethical CBS affiliate media and calls them “CORRUPT BASTARDS”.
As reported earlier today, Alaska CBS affiliate KTVA were caught on a voice recording conspiring to create negative news stories and pick out potential “child molesters” in the crowd supporting Republican Tea Party candidate Joe Miller.
Sarah Palin: We Have Video of “Corrupt Bastards” In Media Conspiring Against Joe Miller

“Just last night it was revealed that the rally that I had for Joe Miller on Thursday, it was revealed and we have the tape to prove it, that the CBS reporters, the affiliate in Alaska, conspired to make up stories about Joe Miller. We have the tape Chris, and I can’t wait until it busts out all over the nation, that shows what it is that we… kinda what I put up with for two years now from the media… but what Joe Miller is faced with in someone like Lisa Murkowsky who feels so entitled to that seat, that she and some of her people including some complicit in the media will do anything, they will stop at nothing, to allow Lisa Murkowsky to get back elected.”
I am saying that we have on tape the CBS reporters in the affiliate up there in Alaska saying, “Let’s find a child molester in the crowd as a supporter of Joe Miller. Let’s blast that. Let’s concoct a Rand Paul moment there. Let’s find any kind of chaos so we can tweet, “Ooh, there’s chaos. Joe Miller got punched.”” That’s sick. Those are corrupt bastards, Chris.
From Breitbart TV, a some what better recording to listen to.
UPDATE I: KTVA confirmed the authenticity of the tape Sunday but rejected as “absurd” the suggestion that reporters were trying to “fabricate” a negative story about Miller. KTVA General Manager Jerry Bever issued a statement that is rather hard to believe when one listens to the audio and understands the context of the discussion and when it took place.
KTVA General Manager Jerry Bever issued a lengthy statement Sunday calling the recording “unfortunate because it does not accurately reflect the journalistic standards of our newsroom.” But he said Miller’s analysis and transcript of the recording are “inaccurate,” noting that the recording only captured newsroom personnel talking at the end of a “coverage planning meeting” regarding the Anchorage rally last Thursday.
“The group of KTVA news personnel was reviewing potential ‘what-if’ scenarios,discussing the likelihood of events at the rally and how KTVA might logistically disseminate any breaking news,” Bever said.
“The perception that this garbled, out of context recording may leave is unfortunate, but to allege that our staff was discussing or planning to create or fabricate stories regarding candidate Miller is absurd. The complete conversation was about what others might be able to do to cause disruption within the Miller campaign, not what KTVA could do,” he said.
He added: “Have we had internal discussions about the level of professionalism we need to bring to our conversations, internally and externally? Of course we have, this is a lesson to learn from.”
Really? Take a good listen to the audio of this tape and read the transcript. Although many parts of the tape are inaudible, there is laughter from the KTVA news people when discussing the so called “what-if” scenarios. Laughter? Likelihood of scenarios at the event, Seriously? Comments about Rand Paul like moments and finding the child molesters in the crowd are potential scenarios to cover?
The MSM was caught red handed in a conversation that was never intended to be heard and they have no explanation as to how to explain it. Remember, the conversation would have occurred right after they got off the phone with the Miller campaign.
Sarah Palin tweets Joe Miller words of encouragement:
Joe Miller – do not give up. It’s you against the machine. This is it. “‘Lost causes’ are the only ones worth fighting for.” Clarence Darrow
