“CBS reporters in the affiliate up there in Alaska, on tape are saying let’s find a child molester in the crowd as a supporter for Joe Miller, let’s blast that. Let’s concoct a [Rand] Paul moment there, let’s find any kind of chaos so that we can tweet an alert saying “ooh, there’s chaos. Joe Miller got punched, or vice [versa].” That’s sick.
