TV Las Vegas reporter Nathan Baca was on a mission last Thursday – find Harry Reid’s Republican challenger, Sharron Angle and get her to admit Reid’s charges that Angle wanted to abolish Social Security and the EPA.
Baca found Angle at Stoney’s North 40, a country bar and music venue in Las Vegas. She was there at my invitation to be interviewed on my national radio show – her first sit down interview since her big grass-roots fueled primary win.
What happened next was dramatic evidence that the Senate majority leader, down 11 points to Angle in a post-primary poll by the Las Vegas Review Journal, will spare no effort or expense to smear Angle early and often. And Reid has powerful allies in the Las Vegas media.
For Reid to survive, he must make Angle the issue to take public attention away from Nevada’s highest-in-the-nation unemployment rate and Reid’s key role in creating the Obamacare fiasco, the debt financed TARP and the “stimulus” that refinanced the fat cats and abandoned the rest of us, and failing to stand up for Nevada after the repeated Obama assaults on its critical tourism and gaming economy.
The day after the primary, Reid ran a gusher of TV and radio ads smearing Angle as “extreme” and “dangerous.” KLAS-TV Channel 8 in Las Vegas ran those ads and made a bundle of money from Reid in that tough Las Vegas economy.
So Nathan Baca shows up at Stoney’s North 40 with the Reid charges as questions to return the favor to Reid and cement the impression with the public in his “news” report that night that Angle is too “extreme” and “dangerous.”
