    A child molester would be big news so while I doubt it would be a priority, I certainly would be open to finding one at a political event ( rating would go through the roof)

    When it was pointed out that the station admitted it was their people, pbrauer said that was bs. That's what I was responding to, so you need to reread the quote.

    But, if that's not KTVA's SOP, then it's an obvious ploy to ruin Miller's campaign. You might have an argument, if KTVA looked for child mollestors at all political events.

    These JournoLists should be sacked. Their manager too.

    But, being a CBS affiliate they'll likely win CBS's prized Dan Rather Medal of Valor in Creative Journalism Award and their coveted Dan Rather Medal of Impacting Elections in the Last Second Award, as well as get raises.

    Let's not call them journalists because they're not. These are political operatives planning a media covered smear plan and then tactically discussing how they would cover it as "news". This happens all the time I'm sure and not just at little KTVA, but at CNN, MSNBC, NY Times... I think the "journolist" listserv proved empirically many in the media: contributors, so called journalists, editors, columnists, are nothing more than frothy rabid socialist progressives trying to use whatever tools they can to push their agenda and call it "news".

    Nothing new here...

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    My only question is if this even started out as a molehill?

    Guess What?

    KTVA dumps two producers over 'Phonegate'

    So much for the audio being "phony"....

    That is not what he said.

    "It’s unfortunate because it does not accurately reflect the journalistic standards of our newsroom"

    To me that means the recording does not reflect his standards, not anything about how it is "reflected" or reported.

    He is saying it should not have happened at all as that is not how he wants to run his newsroom.

    It sounded more to me that the reporters wanted to create news rather than just find something that was there.

    That should never happen.

    The guy did the right thing. It's clearly against what journalism is all about and I'm glad the station manager had the integrity to identify it, and handle it head on. Personally, I don't think he went far enough as I think everyone in that room should be fired to send a very clear and strong message. But... it's a start.
