Reporter Thought She Hung Up Phone, Ends Up Giving GOP Candidate an Earful and The Result is Costly

This is a pretty big blunder.

A reporter for the Huron Daily Tribune in Michigan made the mistake of all mistakes on Monday, having believed she hung up the phone after an interview with Michigan Republican Senate Nominee John James.

As it turns out, she hadn’t hung up. In fact, she accidentally left James a voicemail message expressing her true feelings about the candidate, and her thoughts ended up costing her big time.

Brenda Battel called James’ campaign at the start of the week and left a voicemail requesting a post-election interview and then thought she hung up the phone before saying what she thought of James, according to audio obtained by The Daily Caller.

After Battel thought she hung up the phone, she said: “Man, if he beats her… Jesus! F**king John James. That would suck! Whew, I don’t think it’s going to happen though.”

In a statement to The Daily Caller, campaign manager Tori Sachs said the message reflected the media’s willingness to protect politicians in power.

“The liberal media can’t stand the idea of a job creator and combat veteran coming to Washington to shake up the system,” Sachs said. “This happened as we closed in within the margin of error.”

A couple of hours after the story came out, the Huron Daily Tribune reportedly fired Battel, according to Daily Caller reporter Henry Rodgers.

Here’s a video of the voicemail:

Guess the take away here is two fold. First, if you’re a professional journalist you’re job, while on the clock especially, is to be as objective as possible. This means you leave your own personal opinions at the door. It seems this is a struggle in modern day journalism.

Second, make sure when you’re done taking a call, you hang up the phone. Like really hang up the phone.

Biden Appears Caught In Lie About Being Arrested In South Africa On Way to Visit Mandela

The person he was with denies there was an arrest…

Joe Biden seems to remember things that other people don’t, often times because those things never happened. In other words, Joe, like many Democrats, lives in his own world where he has never done anything wrong. On Friday, the former vice president was apparently caught in a big lie about being arrested in the 1970s in South Africa on his way to go see Nelson Mandela. Just Joe being Joe! Does the 2020 presidential hopeful think people aren’t going to fact-check the stuff he says? It would sure seem that way. LOOK: https://twitter.com/katieglueck/status/1230953852309889024?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1230953852309889024&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2020%2F02%2F21%2Fsiren-it-appears-joe-biden-has-been-lying-about-a-trip-he-took-to-south-africa-to-meet-mandela%2F From New York Times: Andrew Young, a former congressman and mayor of Atlanta who was the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations from 1977 to 1979, said that he had traveled with Mr. Biden over the years, including to South Africa. But Mr. Young said that he had never been arrested in South Africa and expressed skepticism that members of Congress would have faced arrest there. “No, I was never arrested and I don’t think he was, either,” Mr. Young, now 87, said in a telephone interview. REACTIONS: CNN’s John King called out Biden for blatantly lying about Super PACs. Joe has said he doesn’t like them, does’t want one. But now that his low-energy campaign is running short on cash, it appears his attitude might be changing. When even CNN is calling the Democrat “frontrunner” a liar, you just know there’s a problem. Also, it shows that CNN employees have probably been told to put Joe down while building up younger, hipper, cooler, more woke candidates. Just a guess. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=56&v=ZnZkkR93lsc It takes a special kind of person (or news outlet) to lie about something when everyone can clearly see the truth. “See” the truth. As in a picture. As in PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE.

Trump Admin to Sign Peace Treaty With Taliban, Would Bring An End to Longest U.S. War

Kind of a big deal…

If Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in 2016, would the United States be lining up to sign a peace treaty with the Taliban? Would negotiations with North Korea ever have taken place? Would Iranian terrorist Qasem Soleimani still be alive, plotting attacks against hundreds, if not thousands, of innocent people? Thankfully, it’s a moot point. She lost. On Friday afternoon, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made a major announcement about the Taliban in what could soon lead to the end of America’s longest war. From Politico: U.S. officials and the Taliban have reached an “understanding” that could result in a “reduction in violence” in Afghanistan, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Friday, paving the way for an agreement later this month that would bring to an end America’s longest war. […] In a more substantial statement released by the State Department, Pompeo offered further details regarding the “extensive talks” between the two parties, which he said are intended to “facilitate a political settlement to end the war in Afghanistan, reduce United States and Allied Forces presence, and ensure that no terrorist group ever uses Afghan soil to threaten the United States or our allies.” https://twitter.com/SecPompeo/status/1230807986857226245?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1230807986857226245&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fus-to-sign-peace-agreement-with-the-taliban-next-week%2F https://twitter.com/nwadhams/status/1230810890854858752?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1230810890854858752&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fus-to-sign-peace-agreement-with-the-taliban-next-week%2F https://twitter.com/statedeptspox/status/1230808813105766400 During Trump’s visit to Afghanistan on Thanksgiving day 2019, the president of the country said some things that the liberal media won’t be so impressed with. Then again, when it comes to anything positive involving America, the MSM doesn’t really care. Such is life. Ashraf Ghani noted, “Hamza bin Laden was a big thing, but this is the biggest there is. This is the worst ever.” He added, “Osama bin Laden was very big, but Osama bin Laden became big with the World Trade Center. This is a man who built a whole, as he would like to call it, “a country,” a…
