Bias: Call it the "October Suppress" as the so-called "mainstream" media provided less coverage to the current president's bungling of and lying about Benghazi than they did to another president's decades-old DUI arrest.
Last Friday, Pulitzer Prize-winning former New York Times reporter Judith Miller and Kirsten Powers, a Daily Beast columnist, appeared on Fox News' "Happening Now" program to justifiably bash the mainstream media and its orchestrated suppression of coverage of the terrorist attack in Benghazi.
Neither is a charter member of the "vast right-wing conspiracy," but both roundly condemned the shameful and politically motivated actions of their colleagues. Miller called them "co-conspirators" in a Benghazi cover-up, and Powers said the "mainstream media is pathetic" and "carrying water for the administration."
They are right and just one example is what happened on all the Sunday talk shows on Oct. 28. When the Benghazi attack was brought up by a guest, the moderator quickly changed the subject.
When Newt Gingrich raised Benghazi on ABC's "This Week," host George Stephanopoulos quickly moved on to another topic. Also running interference for Team Obama was NBC's David Gregory who cut off GOP panelist Carly Fiorina while promising to "get to that a little later," which he never did.
On CNN's "State of the Union," Candy Crowley, who aided President Obama in the second presidential debate by wrongly telling Mitt Romney that Obama called Benghazi a terrorist attack from day one, sloughed off attempts by two GOP officials to bring up Benghazi.
Folks like ABC's Rick Klein explain away the Benghazi non-coverage by saying it's because GOP nominee Mitt Romney did not make much of an issue of it, particularly during the presidential debates. If he had spoken out about it, he would have covered it.

People will not forget this crap, the MSM needs to be run out of town.
Its Election Day. Go VOTE the Traitors and Criminals OUT.
Could play out as fact... Benghazi was a nail in my opinion and the coffin door was propped open by the media allowing the dying one to escape.... that said we are in a good place against an incumbent. Now we wait.

Does President Romney have to give these people press privileges when they have shown themselves to be propagandists? Why give them legitimacy?
