Facts Expose Obama Lie About Blago Deal

12-12-8

 
Excerpt: Conclusion: Neither of the two brief stories from KHQA were important at the time they were filed. Both were just brief notices that what would normally be happening after Obama’s win was happening. If you’re going to be President, you have to resign the Senate and the Gov. gets to appoint your replacement. As President-elect you are going to want to have a say in that. And you will, to a point, get it.

 
Both stories are just commenting on Obama’s calendar at the time. As such the source was most probably the campaign itself, or a person in the campaign close to local Chicago reporters. Just a couple of dull factoids that stated there was to be a meeting and yes there had been a meeting.
 
But yesterday, when the official Obama party line, issued by the campaign and spoken Obama himself, was that there was no meeting and discussion between Obama and the Blago., then these two unfortunate — preciously harmless — factoids became explosive. Explosive because they exposed the lie. And so they had to die.
 
I’ve written to both Sower and Hunt asking for comment. I’ll report on any response. I doubt any response has been forthcoming. Both “reporters” have doubtless already gotten the word to be quiet “if you know what’s good for you.” ==========

UPDATED: Missing Pages of History Restored: The Obama-Blago Story That Disappeared is Here
 
“I did not have interpersonal relations with that man, Governor Blagojevich.” – Bloodthirsty Liberal
 
The story that put the lie to the No-O & Blogo Meeting was discovered yesterday. Once discovered it promptly disappeared down the memory hole at News : KHQA. Seeing that it had vanished I searched for it in Google Cache and, sure enough, there it was. For about an hour and then cached page vanished as well. A second story from the same source confirming the meeting also met the same fate.
 
But, fearing something like the erasure of the cached page, I made a screen shot. Here it is:
 
 
 
UPDATE VIA: Little Green Footballs Found “at the Illinois Government News Network, an announcement that the meeting took place and the Senate seat was discussed, with the headline: Governor Blagojevich Congratulates President-elect Obama and Discusses U.S. Senate Seat
 
 
 
UPDATE VIA THE COMMENTS: Another screengrab from another “disappeared” story from KHQA states Obama and the Governor meeting took place. This one is by KHQA’s Alexis Hunt (Left).
 
UPDATE: In a vaguely worded “clarification” just issued, KHQA states:
 
KHQA TV wishes to offer clarification regarding a story that appeared last month on our website ConnectTristates.com.? The story, which discussed the appointment of a replacement for President Elect Obama in the U.S. Senate, became the subject of much discussion on talk radio and on blog sites Wednesday.
 
 
 
 
The story housed in our website archive was on the morning of November 5, 2008. It suggested that a meeting was scheduled later that day between President Elect Obama and Illinois Governor Blagojevich. KHQA has no knowledge that any meeting ever took place. Governor Blagojevich did appear at a news conference in Chicago on that date. -KHQA Clarification : News : KHQA[Emphasis added]
 
 
The pulled story, as you can see, was filed by one “Carol Sowers.” [Left] Ms. Sowers position at the station is given, elsewhere, as “Executive News Director.” She also covers other stories on the political beat for the station.
 
Why this “clarification” has been issued is not cleared up by the item. The original item does not, as you can see, “suggest” that the meeting might/maybe happen. It says that “He’s meeting” (He is meeting)…. The only question that the clarification raises is about Ms. Sowers’ professional ethics: Was she making it up then or is she making it up now?
 
Let’s review what Ms. Sowers original story on November 5 tells us:
Who: Obama and the Governor
What: A meeting is is to be held.
Where: In Chicago.
When: The afternoon of November 5.
Why: To discuss the Senate replacement for President-Elect Obama.
 
Let’s review what Ms. Hunt’s original story on November 8 tells us:
Who: President-Elect Obama and the Governor
What: Had a meeting
Where: In Illinois.
When: “Earlier in the week”
Why: To discuss filling Obama’s seat in the Senate.
 
Let’s review what today’s “clairification” tells us:
Who: No person, just an amorphous thing called “KHQA” which “wishes to offer.”
What: A story “which discussed the appointment of a replacement for…”
Where: Somewhere “on our website.”
When: Sometime “last month.”
Why: “KHQA has no knowledge that any meeting ever took place.” But perhaps this KHQA could ask Ms. Sowers who does (or did)…
 
Now recall the statement in today’s “Clarification” that says, “KHQA has no knowledge that any meeting ever took place.”
 
Well, if it KHQA had read itself on the 8th it would have that knowledge. But since the KHQA story from the 8th has now been erased from the KHQA story database I guess you cold say “KHQA has no knowledge that any meeting ever took place.” But it would be more correct to say “KHQA no longer has any knowledge that any meeting ever took place. We did have that knowledge in our knowledge base but we dumped it.”
 
Mark this as incident #56,967 of “It’s not the crime, it’s the coverup.”
 
My own experience tells me that:
1) When a story containing inconvenient facts is suddenly erased from a news site with no warning, that story probably contains the truth.
2) When the removal is followed up quickly by a purging of the Google cache of the story, that story contained a very sensitive truth.
3) When, finally, a lawyeresque non-disclaimer disclaimer appears on the news site to explain the erasures, the original story is a stick of dynamite with a short fuse and the reporter is either posting her resume on Monster, or hiring security, or both.
 
Conclusion: Neither of the two brief stories from KHQA were important at the time they were filed. Both were just brief notices that what would normally be happening after Obama’s win was happening. If you’re going to be President, you have to resign the Senate and the Gov. gets to appoint your replacement. As President-elect you are going to want to have a say in that. And you will, to a point, get it.
 
Both stories are just commenting on Obama’s calendar at the time. As such the source was most probably the campaign itself, or a person in the campaign close to local Chicago reporters. Just a couple of dull factoids that stated there was to be a meeting and yes there had been a meeting.

Explosive because they exposed the lie. And so they had to die.
 
I’ve written to both Sower and Hunt asking for comment. I’ll report on any response. I doubt any response has been forthcoming. Both “reporters” have doubtless already gotten the word to be quiet “if you know what’s good for you.”
