A local reporter from Michigan has been fired from her post after she accidentally left U.S. Senate candidate John James a vulgar voicemail, according to several reports.

“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,” Battel 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.”

Battel, thinking she hung up the phone, proceeded to curse James out to a colleague.

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

The publication had no excuse for Battel’s impropriety.

“I have listened to the voicemail left by Brenda Battel to Mr. James’ campaign, and find no reason to defend this behavior,” Huron Daily Tribune editor Kate Hessling said in a statement posted to the publication’s site. “Brenda Battel’s employment has been immediately terminated.”

Hessling apologized to James on behalf of the publication.

“The Huron Daily Tribune sincerely apologizes to Mr. James and to the public,” she said. “These statements do not represent the views of the Tribune as a whole, nor do they reflect the actions of a responsible journalist.”

James’ campaign manager blasted the media for its obvious liberal bias.

“It shows you that some media will do anything to keep the status quo and career politicians in power,” campaign manager Tori Sachs said, according to Daily Caller. “The liberal media can’t stand the idea of a job creator and combat veteran coming to Washington to shake up the system. This happened as we closed in within the margin of error.”
