Your Liberal Crony Media

Ed Bradley (not the 60 Minutes Ed Bradley) was the general manager of CBS affiliate KSLA in Shreveport, LA, for a long time. But he quit just last month to run for mayor.

Recently, KSLA reporter Jeff Ferrell asked his former boss about campaign finances in a taped interview. Perfectly normal question, but Bradley got upset and started to rant. Bradley ordered his other former employee to stop taping. (My husband used to be a photog, and he always took great pleasure in defying orders by subjects to stop taping, or even better, to turn over the tape). The photog refused to stop.

Ferrell turned the tape over to News Director, Jayne Ruben, who promptly "lost" the tape and pulled Ferrell from all future campaign stories.
