Skip to comments.Reuters Asks if Veep Candidates Will be Checked for Secret Earpieces Before Debate

Carl Cameron of Fox News reported a few minutes ago during Special Report with Brit Hume that Reuters asked the organizers of tonight's vice presidential debate if the two candidates would be checked to see if they were wearing earpieces that would feed them answers and coaching during the debate.
Cameron said Reuters asked if the candidates' ear canals would be looked at before the debate.
At the end of Cameron's report, Hume started singing the Twilight Zone theme song, "Doo-do, doo-do. Doo-do, doo-do."
Liberal bloggers made up a conspiracy theory that President Bush wore a wire during his debates in 2004 with Sen. Kerry. The mainstream media has shown a propensity to investigate any absurd unfounded rumor against Republican candidates John McCain and Sarah Palin by liberal blogs during this campaign season while activiely working with the Obama campaign to shoot down well-founded avenues of inquiry of Obama's background by conservative bloggers.
As has been said by Sean Hannity, 2008 is the year journalism died.
Reuters “one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter”? Figgers.
That would be a hoot. I bet his own party checked him to see if he has been boozin’. LOL
I’m more inclined to think that Obama wore one and someone jammed it.
Gwen Ifill reminds me of a TSA employee.
No sense of humor. Hired to check every orifice.
“Has Joe Biden been drinkin?”

If the candidate starts scratching their ear, I would suspect something bugging it.
Like Obama did in this speech where he said “I can’t hear myself..” ?!
Don’t forget the Sandy Berger sox.
I’m not sure why Biden would even need to. I’m sure he already knows the questions.
Personally I think this is a great idea if they do the same on the next 2 Presidential debates because “The One” has such difficulty without a teleprompter. He may well have had one on the first debate. Generally a guilty conscience causes people to project what they do on to others. Yes I think Obama must have had an ear piece!
The real question should be asked of MSM idiots: Will you admit your bias in reporting?
BS Sean. Journalism died many, many, many, many, many, lots of manys of years ago. Not this year.
Yeah, better check for that 'Gaffe-Inhibitor' inserted in that RAT's ear.
I am really wishing that Joe shows up tonight. He is such a jerk, I am sure he will do something kooky.
Obama could hide a whole recording studio in those ears.
They would get out a speculum if they could get away with it...
Sick media people.
Everytime I get a call or visit from the papers, I call them traitors and slam the door or phone in their faces.
You figure it had to come from someone, and Al Reuters is as likely to ask a question like that as Katie Couric...
Im more inclined to think that Obama wore one and someone jammed itHopefully up his ass.
