Palin Blames “The GOP Machine And The Democrats And The Liberal Media” For Joe Milller’s Fade; Calls TV Station “Corrupt Bastards”
Sarah Palin appeared on FOX News Sunday doing what she does best: pointing fingers and blaming everyone else for what’s going wrong; like the fading Joe Miller Senate campaign:
“The thing’s this fellow has had to put with against the GOP machine and the Democrats and the Liberal media in Alaska it’s not wonder that the numbers are tightening in that race.”
At issue is a phone that wasn’t hung up properly, revealing a bunch of reporters at Anchorage TV station KTVA making comments Palin decided were unfair to Miller, leading Palin to refer to them as “corrupt bastards” when interviewed by Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday”.
Palin…it was revealed that the rally that I had for Joe Miller on Thursday, 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.
We have the tape, Chris, and I can’t wait until it busts out all over the nation to show what it is, that we — kind of what I put up with for two years now with the media — but what Joe Miller is faced with in dealing with somebody who feels — Lisa Murkowski — so entitled to that seat that she and some of her people, including some complicit in the media will do anything. They will stop at nothing to allow Lisa Murkowski to get back, elected.
WALLACE: You’re saying. Wait a minute. You’re saying — I’m not saying you’re bringing this story — you are saying that local reporters in Alaska conspired with the Murkowski campaign to put out false information about Joe Miller?
PALIN: I am saying, and we have it on tape, that CBS reporters of — in the affiliate up there in Alaska, on tape, are saying let’s find a child molester in the crowd as supporter of Joe Miller, let’s blast that. Let’s concoct a Ron Paul moment there. Let’s find any kind of chaos so that we can tweet an alert saying, “Ooh, there’s chaos. Joe miller got punched.” That’s sick. Those are corrupt bastards, Chris. That’s what is wrong with the media today, when they have their chosen one, and nine times out of ten — heck ten times out of ten in the liberal media, it’s going to be the liberal as the chosen one.
However, KTVA General Manager Jerry Bever disputes that Palin’s interpretation accurately reflects what was said.
“The perception that this garbled, out of context recording may leave is unfortunate, but to allege that our staff was discussing or planning to create or fabricate stories regarding candidate Miller is absurd. The complete conversation was about what others might be able to do to cause disruption within the Miller campaign, not what KTVA could do.”
The Wallace interview includes Palin’s comment that she gave the Christine O’Donnell’s Delaware Senate bid “the old college try.”
