Great moments in objective ‘journalism’: Reporter fails to hang up phone before opining on Mich. Senate race

Just perfect

Not long ago I ran across this, and it’s just perfect:

All together now: “JOURNALISM!”

More from the Daily Caller:

Brenda Battel, a reporter for Huron Daily Tribune, left the voicemail on James’s campaign offices phone number at 3:40 PM Monday, requesting the interview for Wednesday, the day after the Nov. 6 midterm elections. In the voicemail, she expresses her interest in interviewing James, believes she hung up the phone, and then goes on to curse about a possible James victory, saying she doesn’t think it will happen.

“Hi, my name is Brenda Battel, I’m a reporter with the Huron Daily Tribune in Bad Axe, Michigan,” Battel said in the voicemail.

“I’m looking to set up an appointment with Mr. James for some time on Wednesday for a phone interview regarding the election results,” Battel continued. “I’m probably going to send an email over to the info@johnjamesforsenate.com with some details. Um, if you’d like to call me back, my number is … extension … Thank you.”

Battel attempts to hang up after giving her number, but the phone remains connected.

“Man, if he beats her… Jesus! Fucking John James. That would suck! Whew I don’t think it’s going to happen though,” Battel continued.

According to most polls (and 2016 taught everybody how worthless those can be) Stabenow still holds a fairly solid lead over James, but with any luck it turns out the other way just to make some “journalists” heads explode — in a totally objective and unbiased way of course.
