McCain Press Aide Calls Alaska Reporter At Home To Complain About Unfavorable Coverage September 18, 2008

Here’s a little more evidence that the McCain-Palin campaign is playing the hardest of hardball on Trooper-Gate — especially in regard to press relations.

Jason Moore, a reporter with Anchorage-based KTUU-TV, just confirmed to TPMmuckraker that Megan Stapleton, a spokeswoman for the McCain-Palin campaign in Alaska, called his home to complain about one of Moore’s news reports, and accused Moore of calling Stapleton and another McCain staffer liars.

Moore’s report looked at the McCain-Palin campaign’s “Truth Squad,” an aggressive Alaska-based public relations campaign that’s being led by Stapleton and former federal prosecutor Ed O’Callaghan and is designed to help thwart the Trooper-Gate investigation.  Source Article
