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.

Watch: 2020 Democrat Joe Biden Thinks COVID-19 Is Called the ‘Luhan’ Virus

It’s Wuhan, Joe. Wu-han.

More often than not, 2020 liberal frontrunner Joe Biden doesn’t know what he’s saying. If he does, he’s not doing a great job of communicating his thoughts with the American people. You’d think his campaign would keep him out of the spotlight, considering he has his party’s nomination all but secured. But nope. Joe is still doing interviews and saying silly things that prove he has no business within 500 feet of the White House. WATCH: https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1243686891368722437?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1243686891368722437&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F03%2Fwhat-is-wrong-with-old-joe-biden-refers-to-wuhan-coronavirus-as-luhan-virus-video%2F From Washington Examiner: Joe Biden’s campaign said the candidate has yet to take the coronavirus test because he is unaware of any contact with the disease. “Vice President Biden has no fever, no cough, no shortness of breath or other symptoms consistent with coronavirus,” the campaign said in a Friday statement. “And the campaign has not been informed of or become aware of any relevant contact with an individual who has tested positive.” Joe isn’t in favor of a travel ban, apparently. From Breitbart: Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) is refusing to listen to the advice of the nation’s leading medical experts, continuing his opposition to travel bans in order to stop the spread of the coronavirus in the United States. President Donald Trump’s administration has implemented travel bans on China, Iran, and most of Europe to stop the outbreak of the coronavirus in the U.S. Leading medical experts said this week that 30 states now have coronavirus cases due to international travel with Europe, from where 70 percent of the world’s new cases are now originating.

He’s just a teenage boy!

Michael Rapaport will never win an award for being politically brilliant. Accordingly, the actor isn’t likely to be named the most handsome man on earth, either. Once again, Rapaport has decided to show the nation that he’s not only ugly on the outside, but on the inside, too. Check this out, via The Blaze: Far-left actor Michael Rapaport — who earlier this week called first lady Melania Trump a “dumb animal” — dropped a payload of F-bombs against President Donald Trump and most of his offspring Wednesday, including his teen son Barron, and wanted to see them all exposed to the coronavirus.
