On checking KHQA's web site, I came across this "clarification".
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.What in the hell are they hiding, and at whose request? My brother later e-mailed me this link to American Digest, which correctly notes that the previous innocuous news item reported a mundane story of a meeting between Obama and Blagojevich that would have been completely expected and not out of the ordinary.
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.
AD states that not only did KHQA dump the story, but it has also since been scrubbed from Google's cache. What the hell is going on here? Why deny that a meeting - one which would have been completely routine even in the hindsight after Blago's arrest - ever took place?
