KTVA-CBS 11 Compounds Scandal After Caught Targeting Miller’s Senate Campaign
Last night news broke that Anchorage's CBS affiliate KTVA News 11 reporters were caught on tape discussing ways in which they could potentially embarass the Senate campaign of Republican Joe Miller.
Anchorage CBS Affiliate Caught on Voicemail Conspiring Against Alaska’s GOP Senate Candidate
Now, note the irony captured below in KTVA's local coverage of yesterday's so called Restoring Sanity rally. Above they are exposed for conspiring to generate yet another negative headline grabbing story in an effort to damage Miller's Senate campaign. Now, in their rally coverage, they quote an activist criticizing both Sarah Palin and Joe Miller for allegedly generating so much of that very kind of news.
In essence, CBS' KTVA is exposed above for generating negative coverage, and now we see them doubling back to highlight an activist's negative reaction to such news - in this case, presumably to also damage Miller's campaign. At this point, CBS affiliate KTVA appears to be engaged in political activism, not journalism. Finally, they hit the talking points they wanted, yet couldn't make their copy coherent. Their editors must have their prioities, I suppose.
About 100 potential voters toting sing(sic) supporting US Senate candidate Scott McAdams and showing messages like, "Think outside the Fox News Extreme Media," filled the campus.
Fairview community activist Kokayi Nosakhere says lately there has not been a lot of Alaska politics he is proud of. "Even though Alaska politics have been extremely interesting the last two years, it has been embarrassing. Just like Shannyn Moore said when you go to travel and the only things people are talking about are Sarah Palin, Joe Miller and how they do not understand what's going on in Alaska," says Nosakhere.
