Skip to comments.MEDIA BLACKOUT: ASIDE FROM FOX, SUNDAY NEWS HOSTS FAIL TO RAISE BENGHAZI
Posted on 10/28/2012 12:29:12 PM PDT by Snuph
The mainstream media's silence on the Benghazi disaster reached deafening levels on Sunday, as hosts of four out of the five major news shows--with the exception of Fox News Sunday--failed to raise the issue. Only Bob Schieffer of CBS gave it serious consideration, and only after it was raised by Sen. John McCain.
When the Benghazi issue did surface, other than on Fox, it was invariably brought up by Republican guests, and then deflected by the hosts, who largely ignored new stories this week that implicated the White House in the decision not to intervene to save the life of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and other American staff.
Here is how the Sunday shows covered the issue:
NBC: Meet the Press with David Gregory
The Benghazi issue was not raised at all, save by panelist Carly Fiorina, who was interrupted by Gregory. He promised, "We'll get to that a little bit later," but did not return to the issue before the show's end. (The show was interrupted in some markets, in the final minute, with breaking news about Hurricane Sandy.)

They are thankful they can talk about the weather and polls instead of the impeachable dereliction of duty by their flop of a president.
That was the tactic the news media agreed upon when they discussed with the White House how to moderate the debates. Why else would they all have used that technique?
The victims’ families must continue to loudly demand an explanation!
Wow - so who is politicizing this? The people who want answers or the snuffers of the truth? Unbelievable.
No aspect of Watergate and Benghazi compares including cover-up -- and especially the MSM coverage.
Watergate had the MSM in a 24/7 frenzy. I recall TV network news being nothing but 30 minutes of Watergate -- even rehashing old news.
Nixon was covering for his staff -- IIRC Soviet and Red China comrade Armand Hammer (who owned Al Gore Sr) was successfully prosecuted only once in his life.. he got nailed for giving money to Nixon's White House to give to the Watergate defenders to help them through it all.
If this had been on GWB’s watch (which then it wouldn’t have happened), but just say it did, the SRM/MSM would be on it all day 24/7/365 and Schumer and Durbin would calling for impeachment or a resignation.
Where’s the GOP?
But they can't.
So...instead they are silent on this. They don't dare expose their viewers to the truth, especially not before the elections.
I guess, for MSNBC, ABC, CNN, CBS and the Liberal press ...the old saying is true...
When you can't say anything good, don't say anything at all!
Time to INUNDATE these Media places with COMPLAINTS...up to the highest level!! WHORES!
IOW, it's the same technique they've used for the past 40 years to make sure the peasants learn only the "left" side of the news. They're just a little more bold about it these days because they think they've won the war.
It’s high time that we make this ‘personal’ and call out personally, by name, each of the ‘hacks’ that continue this propaganda agenda.... Bob Scheifer, Brian Williams, George Stephanopolous, Diane Sawyer.
The only way the MSM is going to mention this is if Romney makes it part of his stump speech and runs TV ads about it.
Otherwise its crickets
WE ARE THE NEW NEWS MEDIA..GET USED TO IT !
Word of Mouth Media
Why cede this story entirely to us? The absence of info has given plenty of room for insider leaks and outside speculation. It’s odd.o
Bitching TO the media about the media is a total waste of time and resource. Nothing will ever happen.
We need to bitch to the RNC and the media about why the Republicans are so damn uninterested in saying squat.
I get the ‘give them rope’ bit, but they have enough rope. It’s time for the GOP to grow a pair and hang the Dems with it.
But they are every bit the cowards that Obama is. Sad but true.
And I never heard the MSM report on this:
“Not knowing exactly what was taking place, the two SEALs set up a defensive perimeter. Unfortunately Ambassador Stevens was already gravely injured, and Foreign Service officer, Sean Smith, was dead. However, due to their quick action and suppressive fire, twenty administrative personnel in the embassy were able to escape to safety. Eventually, these two courageous men were overwhelmed by the sheer numbers brought against them, an enemy force numbering between 100 to 200 attackers which came in two waves. But the stunning part of the story is that Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty killed 60 of the attacking force. Once the compound was overrun, the attackers were incensed to discover that just two men had inflicted so much death and destruction.”
The disrespect MSM and Obama and Killary have for the brave this country produces......is complete darkness.
You’re absolutely right...great point!
They are trying to bury this damning issue until after the election. It would be horrible if Obama were reelected in spite of this impeachable crime. Why isn’t Romney campaign buying time from the networks to inform the people before the election. We have a MSM determined to elect Obama. Romney is apparently as bad as McCain. Throwing the election to Obama This scandal is much worse than Watergate. Romney is letting us down.
