ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Local CBS affiliate KTVA cancelled its early-evening televised newscasts Wednesday night after the station’s general manager, Jerry Bever, said his newsroom's credibility had been called into question.
“As the result of a conversation within our newsroom that was accidentally recorded and released to the public, our newsroom credibility has been called into question, and the public's trust in us has been tested,” Bever said.
Joe Miller's campaign spokesman, Randy DeSoto, received a telephone message from KTVA that continued recording, capturing what the campaign claimed were efforts to conspire against Miller’s future appearances.
Bever went onto say he cancelled the early newscast so that his staff could sit down and discuss as a news organization what they need to accomplish to move forward.
