Skip to comments.Missing Pages of History Restored: The Obama-Blago Story That Disappeared
Posted on 12/10/2008 4:25:12 PM PST by RKV
The story that put the lie to the No-O & Blogo Meeting was found yesterday and disappeared down the memory hole at News : KHQA.
KHQA then denies knowledge that such the meeting actually took place.
“The story housed in our website archive was on the morning of November 5, 2008. It suggested that a meeting was scheduled later that day between President Elect Obama and Illinois Governor Blagojevich. KHQA has no knowledge that any meeting ever took place. Governor Blagojevich did appear at a news conference in Chicago on that date.”
I’ve got the other one that said he had a meeting.
Good thing someone got a screen grab.
This is beyond outrageous. This is something that simply should not happen in a free society.
I am beginning to question whether we will have one much longer.
Perhaps Carol Sowers can get interviewed.
First by fifty people in the proported “media”, then by the FBI.
Wow. When you experience this kind of history in the making/undoing, it is simply amazing and sickening at the same time.
What a story....This is interesting.....
The ad on that page is painfully ironic.
Fox reported that “no direct conversations took place between O and Blago.” So, let’s see, what would an “indirect conversation” be??
Except of course when the Ministry of Truth does it’s job properly. Paging Winston Smith!
I think our free press is a thing of the past. They’re all lined up with the anointed one.
I’m wondering if the “news” which is printed is even real or not?
Suppose they are making stuff up routinely and we are assuming that what the media reports is taking place — when in reality, not much is really happening.
Another screen shot of a different later article from the same source uses the past tense verb “met”.
They did meet. This source reported they “met.”
1) Fox could be wrong or 2) this reporter could be wrong and no communication took place or 3) Blago made Zero’s people an offer to take back to their boss.
Good catch.. um er.. cache even.
I’m sure Rush Limbaugh, if he addresses this, won’t miss the point either. “If this was incorrect, what other stories are made up?”
There must be something pretty danming to cover up when the press throws ITSELF under the bus to protect Obama!
American Digest is a fine blog, and Vanderleun there really writes well. Highly recommend you check out the link
Except for talk radio and the internet, which are targeted for censorship.
Pulled story #2.
Duckworth comments on consideration for Senate
By Alexis Hunt
Saturday, November 08, 2008 at 9:48 p.m.
QUINCY, IL Now that Barack Obama will be moving to the White House, his seat in the U.S. Senate representing Illinois will have to be filled.
Obama met with Governor Rod Blagojevich earlier this week to discuss it. Illinois law states that the governor chooses that replacement. Theres already been speculation about his selection...from Congressman Jesse Jackson, Junior to Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs Director Tammy Duckworth.
Duckworth made an appearance in Saturdays Veterans parade in Quincy. We asked her about the possibility of filling Obamas seat.
The Governors office confirmed yesterday that he is considering me and I am deeply honored jus to be considered. I hope whoever is selected is someone who is willing to travel around the state and gets to know this wonderful state. Im just honored to be considered, Duckworth said.
The governor expects to make his decision before Christmas. Part of the timing depends on when Obama officially vacates his senate seat.
PS. Duckworth (Durbin’s Fitz pawn?) lied!
Spokeswoman: Duckworth hasnt met about Sen. seat
6:16 PM CST, December 9, 2008
CHICAGO - Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs Director Tammy Duckworth hasnt met or spoken with Gov. Rod Blagojevich about replacing President-elect Barack Obama in the U.S. Senate.
Thats according to Duckworth spokeswoman Jessica Woodward.
I sent the link to Rush yesterday & Hannity, so maybe they also saved it!
