The Kevin Miller story's made it into the wingut big leagues.
World Net Daily - where the implication is pretty clear: Kevin was reprimanded due to pressure from the Obama campaign. The set-up is pretty clear:
Then the subtle:
A talk-radio host was reprimanded on air by his executive producer Wednesday after he received complaints about his coverage of Sen. Barack Obama.
KDKA-AM 1020 host Kevin Miller was silenced when executive producer P.J. Kumanchik read a CBS statement accusing Miller of being unfairly biased against Obama.
"We want to apologize to listeners who have found your show offensive," Kumanchik said to Miller on the air.
The executive producer of the CBS affiliate said Miller, a Marconi Award nominee and former Army Reserve journalist, had featured guests who were not objective when reporting information about Obama. Miller had recently conducted an Oct. 9 interview with "The Obama Nation" author and WND senior staff reporter Jerome Corsi about his investigation of Obama's connections to opposition leader Raila Odinga in Kenya. He called Corsi "a true patriot" upon his return from detention by Kenyan immigration authorities.Ah, there it is. What World Net Daily wants you to think is that Kevin Miller was reprimanded because he was speaking out about Senator Obama.
In the interview with Corsi, Miller revealed his personal concerns about efforts to silence Obama critics.
"Well Dr. Corsi, what scares me is, we've seen this from the Obama campaign, that they clearly target people such as yourself, talk radio stations – whether it's WGN or others or people like myself – that speak out," he said. "And if [Obama is] elected, we're going to have a different chorus when it comes to discourse in this country."
Whether it was a stunt now is beside the point.
And I'll ask it again, if it WAS a stunt what did Miller accomplish? Now large swaths of the wingnut right think that KDKA is looking to "silence" Kevin Miller because of his political beliefs.
My guess (and this is only a guess) is that we should be seeing Mr Miller on Hannity and Colmes sometime real soon.
