In some of her harshest language yet, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin blasted journalists covering Joe Miller’s Alaska Senate campaign, calling them "bastards" and suggesting that the initials CBS stand for "Corrupt Bastards Club."
She also accused reporters of a specific Alaska CBS affiliate of actively plotting to bring Miller down.
Palin base her allegations on a snippet of audio they leaked to Andrew Breitbart's website Big Government. The audio is weak, but what can be heard sounds like KTVA reporters explaining how to turn a story into a sensation: specifically, jesting about finding a child molester who's voting Republican and tarring Miller by association.
The conversation took place after one of the reporters left a message for a Miller spokesperson, but accidentally failed to hang up.
Palin took to Twitter and Fox News Sunday to gin up outrage.
"Corrupt bastards. CBS/media plot against Joe Miller before our Anchorage rally Thurs Kinda'what I've put up w for 2 yrs http://bit.ly/cmbzMr," she exclaimed on Twitter. Corrupt Bastards Club.
