LISTEN: Reporter Caught on Tape Disparaging Michigan GOP Senate Candidate “F*cking John James”

A Michigan reporter was caught on tape disparaging GOP Senate candidate John James when she called his campaign looking for an interview and thought she hung up the phone after leaving a voicemail.


The Daily Caller exclusively reported:

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,” she continued. “I’m probably going to send an email over to the [email protected] with some details. Um, if you’d like to call me back, my number is [redacted] Thank you.”

At this point Brenda Battel tries to hang up the phone after leaving her number, but the phone remains connected to the line and continues to record her voice.

“Man, if he beats her… Jesus! F*cking John James. That would suck! Whew I don’t think it’s going to happen though,” Battel said not realizing she is being recorded.

GOP Senate candidate John James, a combat veteran, husband and father is running against Democrat incumbent and Soros puppet, Debbie Stabenow.

There’s no media bias though…that’s just a vast right-wing conspiracy.
