The following voice mail message was inadvertently left on the cell phone of Joe Miller campaign spokesperson Randy DeSoto.

The voices are believed to be those of the news director for CBS Anchorage affiliate KTVA, along with assignment editor Nick McDermott, and other reporters, openly discussing creating, if not fabricating, two stories about Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, Joe Miller.

The following is a transcript of a call recorded after CBS Alaska affiliate KTVA called Joe Miller’s Senate campaign spokesperson. The call failed to disconnect properly. It was later authenticated by McDermott, who sent a text to Randy DeSoto stating, “Damn iPhone… I left you a long message. I thought I hung up. Sorry.”


TRANSCRIPT OF KTVA AUDIO

FROM OCTOBER 28, 2010


FEMALE REPORTER: That’s up to you because you have the experience but that’s what I would do...I’d wait until you see who shows up because that indicates we already know something...

[Laughter]

[INAUDIBLE]

FEMALE REPORTER: Child molesters...

MALE REPORTER: Oh yes...Joe Miller’s...uh...get a list of people/campaign workers which one's the molester

[INAUDIBLE]

FEMALE VOICE: You know that of all the people that will show up tonight, at least one of them will be a registered sex offender.

[Laughter]

MALE REPORTER: We need to find that one person...

[INAUDIBLE]

FEMALE REPORTER: The one thing we can do is ....we won’t know....we won’t know but if there is any sort of chaos whatsoever we can put out a twitter/facebook alert: saying what the... ‘Hey Joe Miller punched at rally.’

FEMALE REPORTER: Kinda like Rand Paul...I like that.

[Laughter]

FEMALE REPORTER: That’s a good one.

Good.

Alaskan politics has always been SO SO SO DIRTY.

And I blame GOP for not doing anything “significant” to address the situation in the past.

In fact, many of the Ds in Alaska are “conservative” who lost their faith in the fascist and statist structure of the AK Republican Party.

AK-GOP has always been a nepotistic organization, until Sarah Palin came along.

The unsuspecting public believes they are objective. The media believe they are advocates for liberalism and the progressive Marxist agenda.

KTVA (Channel 11) is mild when compaired to the slugs at KTUU (Channel 2) - and several of the local radio stations seem more on the side of “The Soviet” than Ameicans.

We first got to Anchorage in 1980 - pretty conservative, now seems more like Seattle lite.

Lisa stands a good chance of winning - thanks to the Big Money behind her.

If Miller pulls it off, heads will roll..... Could be an interesting next 6 months.

Miller will win it by a couple of touchdowns. This is going to turn out to be much ado about nothing. It is pure liberal delusion that Lisa or the Ollie Hardy lookalike Dem bulb McAdams have a legitimate chance to overtake him under these circumstances, the phony push polls to the contrary notwithstanding.

The real Action is in Delaware and the MSM is totally missing it.

CBS has been known to fabricate news - civil rights demonstrations in the South, and same thing in Vietnam, and probably others.

also their crusade against President Bush including fake documents.

Journalism is interested in attracting the attention of the public, but interesting the public is quite a different thing than the public interest.

The only way to even attempt to be objective is to begin with an analysis of one's own interest. Claiming to be objective, as journalism systematically does precisely to promote itself and its own interest is inimical to any effort at actual objectivity.

Belief in the objectivity of journalism is illogical.

No doubt this will be the top story on all the Sunday shows...sarc LOL, but really sad because it will not even be mentioned.

The only good Democrat is a former Democrat! Actually former can also be replaced by another few choice words.
