Default TV Station Retracts Report that Obama met with Blogojevich

From the KHQA Website

KHQA Clarification : News : KHQA

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.

They didn't disappear, they've been retracted as in, "we were wrong."

it's just more crap from the knuckle dragging crowd that is still in denial.

Go say your prayers to your idol, the shrub, McCant, and the bimbo from Alaska

BS! There are hundreds of stories about Obama that are being pulled. This has been happening for weeks...

There is no need to pull incorrect stories (if the writer learns they are incorrect), they just need to correct them. However the story that Obama met with Blago IS correct...yet the TV station pulled it anyway.

I happen to have a copy of the PULLED story!

Obama has been escorted EVERYWHERE he goes for the last six months or so- including the day after the election- by the Secret Service.

They would have reported if Obama had a meeting with the Governor- and since the Bush Administration is still in office, I'm sure it would have been exposed by now if it had happened.
