Skip to comments.Reuters Asks if Veep Candidates Will be Checked for Secret Earpieces Before Debate
Posted on 10/02/2008 3:31:37 PM PDT by kristinn
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.
I have never ever seen a candidate slayed in this way as the main street has tried to do to Sarah, under the guise of journalism.
If I was Joe Biden right now I would be sweating heavy... I can only hope he has just a tiny bit of class to deal with his atomic bomb.
I do seem to remember some FReepers asking, “Is Obama wearing an earpiece?” in the last debate thread.
SADLY it did not die enough since half the voting pupulace more a less a percent or two will still vote for Obama. Dont be fooled to think the old time journalism has died.
Or, the last debate when ‘The One’ looked left and nodded and then looked right and nodded again?? Was someone telling him where to look for his response??
Yep. I was just about to call up the picture (and thread) about Obama’s hidden earpiece.
Sarah wears her hair up, and Biden has none!
Barnes is nothing but a stuttering elitist. I wanted to smash my TV listening to that crap he was spewing.
Oh, and pigs have developed hollow bones and appear to be growing feathers. Stay tuned for breaking newz.
some people thought that Obamanation had one during the presidential debate.
I have heard this so many times, even from some of my co-workers, that I am PRAYING she does not wear her hair down and give fuel to the insanity.
My hope is that if we’ve heard all this, so has she, and she will wear it up in the style we love.
” I am angry, I just got done listening to that odious Fred Barnes trash all the conservatives in the house.”
Fred can’t handle pressure situations. I’ve notice he becomes a bumbling speaker when he tries to express a point.
Contrast him with Krauthammer, who like or hate him, is the most articulate.
Speaking of Charles, he is on Fox with Brit right now, giving the win to Biden.
