Upon the revelation that Nick McDermott of KTVA and other reporters were planning negative news stories against Joe Miller on Miller's voice mail, I checked my own voice mail. What I found, was astounding...
Apparently, prior to calling Joe Miller, Nick McDermott left me a voice mail. McDermott ever struggling with that frustrating iPhone, failed to disconnect the phone line and my voice mail kept recording. Here is a transcript of what I heard after McDermott thought he had hung up...
Female voice: Valerie Jerrett Ministry of Truth, Nick I wanted to go over your news stories for tomorrow. What have you got on Joe Miller?
Nick McDermott: We don't have much left three days before the elections. I mean, I can't understand why people don't think creating an online poll at work is riveting?
Female voice: That's because it was stupid. I followed your lead and had the MSM publish as a favor, but we need something much, much more interesting.
Nick McDermott: Like what???
Female voice: Well, how about we find someone Joe Miller dated. I mean so long as he made out with the woman we can publish something like "Joe Miller's one-night stand." That's what we did with Christine O'Donnell.
Nick: I don't know...that didn't turn out too well...
Female voice: I was only trying to make an example...here, but we've done great things with Christine O'Donnell so far. Like that bit about how Christine O'Donnell didn't know that separation of church and state is in the constitution.
Nick: But it isn't written in the constitution...it came about via court precedence nearly 200 years later.
Female voice: I know that...but no MSM reporter does. In fact, that is the only thing they think is in the constitution.
Nick: Ok, so what you are saying is that we just need to make up a story with a flashy headline that isn't true?
Female voice: Precisely. Look, I know you are the expert in AK media, but you should be looking to do something like Rand Paul supporters stomping story.
Nick: Ok, let's give it a try...I'll call up Joe Miller right now!
(Nick's message to Joe Miller campaign redacted for privacy reasons.)
Nick: I can't believe a Tea Party candidate might win...here's my thought, we find a molester, any molester that might possibly show up at a Joe Miller rally and we do a title "Joe Miller is pro-molestation."
Female Voice: That’s up to you because you're the expert, but that’s what I would
do...I’d wait until you see who showed up because that indicates we already know
Female voice: ...but, I think we can do better than Child molesters...
Nick: Oh yeah... can you repeat Joe Miller’s...uh... list of people, campaign
workers, which one's the molester?
FEMALE VOICE: We know that out of all the people that will show up tonight, at least one of
them will be a registered sex offender.
MALE REPORTER: You have to find that one person...
FEMALE REPORTER: And 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.
FEMALE REPORTER: That’s a good one.
Female voice: I mean we don't even need a foot to hit someone's face, just get close. This is perfect.
