If the lame-stream media did fair reporting, Romney would be ahead by 10 points. But that will never happen. Never. We have to accept that these partisan hacks will always report the way they do, and republicans/conservatives must factor that into their interview strategy when they appear on Meet the (left) Press and Slay the Nation.
I personally thought that even though Stephanoupolus and Shieffer quickly tried to move on to other topics, both Gingrich and McCain got their talking points out about Libya with devastating effect.
Once this election is over we need to double down on exposing the media and who is behind them. It was sickening how these same people hammered Pres. Bush 24/7. I’m sure they will do the same to Romney.
What gives me new hope is the ubiquitous Internet and the decline of both broadcast media and print media. Sites such as this and other that aggregate actual news independently will have an impact.
Why do strong experienced business people like Carly Fiorina let themselves be bullied and cut off by the likes of little Davie Gregory?
Surely there are courses in business communications that teach how to assert control over a dialogue and not lose it to a boor.
Quash vs. squash
As a verb, squash means to beat, squeeze, press, or crush something into a flattened mass. As a noun, it denotes the family of tendril-bearing plants with leathery rinds and edible fruit, and squash is also racket game played in a closed-walled court with a rubber ball. Quash means (1) to set aside or annul by judicial action, and (2) to suppress forcibly and completely. When squash is used figuratively, its meaning can come very close to the second sense of quash.
Like I’ve said, it’s not the lies they tell, it’s the truth they hide.
Shouldn’t that be ‘quashing’ not ‘squashing’?

I'll take that as a misstatement for "instead of coming clean".
But Obama couldn't come clean -- because his intentions were even worse. If the new-media outriders are right, and this was a Muslim Brotherhood play to "exchange" the ambassador and his staff for the Blind Sheikh, then Obama was engaged in actual treason.
