An Alaska television station is disputing allegations by Senate candidate Joe Miller's campaign that staff discussed creating or making up stories about Miller.
In a statement, KTVA-TV General Manager Jerry Bever authenticated a recording released by Miller's campaign but said it was taken out of context.
He called it the result of a cell phone not being hung up after a call was made to Miller's spokesman and included staff discussing potential "what if" scenarios surrounding a Miller rally Thursday.
He said the allegation that staff would plan to make up stories "absurd."
A transcript from the campaign indicates one person said "chaos" at the rally _ like Miller getting punched _ could be alerted via Facebook or Twitter.
Sarah Palin, a Miller supporter, claimed a "media plot" against Miller.
