Some CBS affiliated reporters got together to figure out how to sabotage Joe Miller in the last days before Alaska’s election. Being horribly mean and vicious, though, doesn’t mean that one doesn’t make mistakes. After all, feral intelligence isn’t a complete intelligence. Here the mistake was that, somehow, the reports managed to leave their little conference as a voicemail message for Miller’s spokesman. Read more about the whole thing here. And then listen to the plot, which is exceptionally sordid, below. Remember this one forever as an example of how the modern American media operates.

UPDATE: There a certain Keystone Kops quality to the reporter’s conduct. Yes, they plotted something truly foul, but they did so with such ineptitude they got caught and publicly humiliated. Now, to add to the slapstick quality of the whole thing, they’re contending that they were just strategizing possible things that might actually happen, rather than trying to find a child molester to attach to the Miller campaign. The only difference between these yahoos and the Kops, is that the Kops were innocent and funny. These guys and gals, despite sharing the stupidity, are as malevolent as anyone you’ll find within this nation’s borders.
