Buffalo Beast Website Goes Down Following Walker, Koch Prank Call
Source: The Huffington Post

The online news site Buffalo Beast has gone offline after publishing a prank phone call between Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and a Buffalo Beast editor who posed as David Koch.

Buffalo Beast Publisher Paul Fallon told The Huffington Post that the audio is "absolutely legit" (listen to it here).

The Buffalo Beast website only says, "The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable." It redirects to a WordPress install page, likely indicating that the site's WordPress database was either uninstalled or somehow deleted.

It's not the first time the Web has made the news in the Wisconsin protests. A pro-union website was blocked at the Capitol Building in Madison.

It's too late for your censorship, The Internet has those audio files now Walker.

The page with the Walker story still loads for me.

Edit: Well, it works when I click it from my email but not from here. Weird.

2. That's weird
It seems as though half their pages are working and half aren't.

3. It seems the website is working sporadically

One second the page wasn't there for me but after a couple of reloads it appeared. Keep trying. They must be inundated with too much traffic.
