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.)

You are so correct. Romney must sense a trap in this story somewhere.
I know gazigate has its loose ends, but Romney, sooner or later, must be the one to jerk it up by the roots. ,
Post these links to as many MSM blogs as you can:
Reminds me of a little girl we used to tease on the school bus. She would cover her ears and say, “ I cannot hear you!”
And after the election (when Obama loses) the media will claim that it is all retaliation by the evil right wing/TEA Party for having a black president.
Bank on it.
Can you imagine what it’s like to be liberal media today? I wish I had stock in Tums and aspirin. They are sitting there looking at the Democrat Obama administration with an operation in Benghazi that makes Iran Contra look like kids selling lemonade. They are sitting in their office with their head in their hands looking at the Democrat Obama administration’s cowardly response to the fight in Benghazi that makes Carter and the failed Iranian hostage rescue attempt look like Eisenhower at Normandy. The liberal media is looking at the Benghazi coverup by the Democrat Obama administration and realizing it makes Watergate look like a whoopee cushion joke. And they are just sitting there, afraid to look at FOX News for fear they’ll see the story about who has been funding Obama and Hillary and the Democrats as they make British imperialism look like a holiday vacation. Ohhhhh....this is rich. It’s the liberal media’s team and they are coming around to the realization that “the higher calling” they think that Democrats have is, in fact, just a lie to protect grifters. Hello NBC! Welcome to reality!
The 2nd largest newspaper in Iowa after the Des Moines Register, the Cedar Rapids Gazette, endorsed Romney for President today. Both of those newspapers lean left and supported Obama in 2008, but both have now endorsed Romney. In the Gazette endorsement article, the Benghazi mess was cited as one of the primary reasons, as well as jobs and economy. So, the MSM may be ignoring it, but word is out at the local levels. It is the elephant in the room and the MSM is not going to have one iota of cred left when Romney wins in spite of their shameless pandering to the Obama campaign. I won’t be sorry to see them go. Time for an entirely new slate of reporters to take over our papers and airwaves.
Too bad for Nixon he didn’t have Hurricane Sandy!
I would add every bastard that voted for obama to your list.
The 4th Estate are 5th Columnists.
Aiding and abetting in the destruction of America.
They are a real danger to our country.
It is no longer a free press as liberals have taken it over and censor anything they are not in agreement with.
Using the Left’s own playbook against them, do you think we should publish their home addresses when we call them out?
Aiding and abetting...hoping that the election occurs before they are FORCED to act.
they could show video of poor Stevens being raped before and after death and they’d still attempt to ignore it.
the media and current administration are all traitors to our country. every last one of them.
The real story of this election is the media’s Obamesia, and the resultant black out and cover up.
And the Romney campaign. Whyb are they silent?
They lie, “conservatives” buy the products and services of the MSM content providers and corporate sponsors.
That’s ALL that matters.
