The Media Manufactures Anti-Republican Stories
Who would have "thunk" it? Imagine journalists seeking to manufacture news. I mean isn't that what they constantly accuse Fox of doing?
This is the latest case in which someone thought their cell phone had disconnected.

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

In a measure of the controversy generated, CBS released a statement saying it does not own KTVA
