Palin: News Station Trying to "Make Up" Stories (CBS trying to run from their own affiliate)
cbs ^ | 10/31/2010 | cbs

Posted on 10/31/2010 5:33:18 PM PDT by tobyhill

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin is accusing staffers at CBS Anchorage affiliate KTVA of conspiring to fabricate a story about Republican senate candidate Joe Miller.

Sunday on Fox News, Palin said a cell phone recording shows two of the reporters were trying to discredit the Miller campaign.

"It was revealed and we have the tape that proves it, that the CBS reporters, the affiliate in Alaska, conspired to make up stories about Joe Miller," said Palin on Fox News. "We have the tape, [Host] Chris [Wallace], that proves it and I can't wait till it busts out all over the nation."

Note: KTVA is owned by the Alaska broadcasting company, not CBS. No CBS staffers were involved and CBS has no knowledge of and no comment on these allegations.

CBS is quibbling over semantics. It doesn’t matter who owns the station, they represent the CBS brand which has been indelibly tarnished by this whole affair. CBS should revoke their affiliation.

Duly noted, but still not buying it.

Another black eye for CBS.

CBS, known for more than a few misspoken words over the years...

Cronkite declared that we lost the Tet offensive, when the kill ratio was some 10:1 in our favor, and perhaps 4 or 5:1 if you include the South Vietnamese Army losses.

"Fake but accurate" is how CBS' Cronkite described the faked documents pertaining to Bush's military service. He is correct in that they were fake, but they were not accurate.

And now this - let's make up a plan to hurt Miller's campaign by finding a "sexual predator" in his audience.

Who can say with honesty that the media isn't biased hard to the left?

The commie clowns leave a whole lot out and even mangle the headline to make it look like Sarah is responsible somehow. If this were a Democrat and the roles were reversed, the context would be clear, shouted from the rooftops, and repeated all over the place.

Because CBS adheres to such high journalistic standards, y'see.

I live near Wasilla and this channel is terrible, I mean its VISUALLY terrible, and I get the re-broadcast version through Dishnetwork, every show I record and its only one mind you the Miami CSI is barely something to watch. Rotten colors, cheap, cheap cheap. I apologize to the rest of America that we have such a blight as this station and its employees. Lisa has indeed sent out her flying monkey's. We won't forget, and we WILL vote for Miller.

CBS - Their competitor is not NBC or ABC , They compete against the producers. The get up and go to work team The team on the field now, will clean their clock. But why do they hate me? I only go to work and buy from the sponsors, and they get up to work to sell me their things.

Remember CBS is the same outfit that reported 87,000 at the Beck Rally.

Contemptible, despicable scum, the lot of them.

I won't rest until every last cBS station is revealed for the Marxist manure pile that it is.

Words cannot describe my disgust.

I went on Wikipedia and suggested the "Media Bias" page should be updated to include this incident. Any Wikipedians out there may wish to consider the merit of my suggestion. See Talk:Media_bias; Media bias caught on tape should be added

Who knows, maybe the Joe Miller page should be similarly updated.

OK, I'll bite. So who owns Alaska Broadcasting Company? Who sits on the Board of Directors? Who makes the programming decisions?
