Corrupt journalists? Crooked reporters scheming against a conservative? Gatekeepers of the truth trying to make the news, instead of reporting it?

Say it ain’t so, Joe!

Surprisingly—and I use that term lightly—reporters from an Anchorage CBS affiliate were accidentally recorded plotting ways to embarrass Alaskan US Senate candidate Joe Miller.

An unnamed KTVA reporter accidentally “butt-dialed” Miller’s spokesperson, and several reporters were overheard brainstorming ideas about how to ruin Miller’s campaign. Ideas suggested by the “objective” Fourth Estate include trying to find “child molesters” and “sex offenders” at Miller’s rallies, and trying to create a situation in which they could report that“Joe Miller [got] punched at a rally.”

On “Fox News Sunday”, former Alaskan governor and conservative activist Sarah Palin called the reporters at the TV station “corrupt bastards,” and compared the incident to her experience with biased media.

The recording, which was released in its entirety by Andrew Breitbart on his online media portal BreitbartTV, was challenged by Washington Post columnist Greg Sargent, who cited Breitbart’s attacks against the Alaska reporters as the reason that he was unceremoniously dropped by ABC News as a pundit for the network’s Election Night coverage.

Breitbart claims that ABC is “walking back” his role in their coverage, due to outrage from MSNBC host Keith Olbermann, as well as noted “progressive research and information center” Media Matters for America.

Sargent, on Sunday, wrote that Breitbart’s claims show “how insane it is for any serious news organization to play footsie with this guy,” and that Breitbart’s claims that the reporters were plotting to manipulate the news are “pretty questionable.”

Sargent himself is no stranger to the world of media malpractice, though. In June, the word got out that progressive policymakers, reporters, and activists coordinated their stories and strategies, in an effort to shape and spin the news to their liking.

The coordination effort, called JournoList, included Washington Post columnists Ezra Klein and David Weigel, NPR producer Sarah Spitz, UK Guardian reporter Michael Tomasky, and many more allegedly unbiased journalists across the country… including Greg Sargent.

Breitbart, however, sees a larger connection between Sargent, the KTVA reporters, Media Matters for America’s pressure campaign against him, and ABC News’ Election Night walkback—one that leads back to his perennial arch-nemesis, leftist billionaire George Soros:

George Soros, in his plane, a private jet, a global warming jet, flew and dropped money on Alaska on a series of left-wing bloggers and infested it, the Alaska media, with an anti-reformist agenda. The Republican Party up there is corrupt, the media up there is corrupt, the Democratic Party up there is corrupt, and George Soros has helped to sully it.

Regardless of whether Miller becomes Alaska’s next US Senator or not, Breitbart vows vengeance against “corrupt bastards” everywhere:

They [the media, in general] want to use this to deny my existence in their world, especially for retribution because of the success of the ACORN story. We will continue to fight you, we will continue to call you out for hackery, we will only get bigger, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

And this, folks, is precisely why Andrew Breitbart rocks: he’s not afraid to take on the corrupt and biased Inglorious Bastards of the leftist media establishment.
