Sticker shock: Local station fouls up Obama VP story

Yesterday, a reporter with KMBC in Kansas City had a big scoop: Barack Obama would pick Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh to be his running mate. Except… that didn’t happen. Oops. The station broke into programming with the hot news based on a bumper sticker. Did they hedge? Not enough…

KMBC-9 News has every indication that Barack Obama is about to announce his running mate will be the Indiana senator Evan Bayh. This is based on sources very close to the situation and based also on this.

Turns out sources “close to the situation” were actually sources close to the bumper sticker makers. Ouch.
