ABC and CBS Ignore Their Own Reporters As Benghazi Blackout Reaches 7 Days
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 11/02/2012 10:32:34 AM PDT by chessplayer

For the seventh night in a row, ABC’s World News, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News refused to give one single second of coverage to the Obama administration’s deceitful response to the terrorist attack on the US consulate in Benghazi on September 11. According to the Media Research Center, the last time Benghazi was discussed on one of the flagship network evening news casts was the October 25 edition of CBS Evening News.

Since then, ABC News and CBS News have relegated coverage of the Benghazi terrorist attack to their websites. Jake Tapper’s November 1 report for ABC News landed on the Drudge Report, while a post from CBS News’ Sharyl Atkisson that same day was picked up by Real Clear Politics. But the millions of viewers who tune in to ABC’s World News and CBS Evening News were not permitted to hear these stories on the evening broadcasts.

This STATE RUN media sucks.

Every single one of these editors know in their soulless hearts that if this happened under a GOP administration they would be running this story 24/7, screaming for answers and resignations at the top of their lungs.

After the election they will run all the storied they’ve been sitting.
Kind of a conscience cleansing.
Then they can claim they ran the stories.
It’s their M O.

In the middle of a mini depression the MSM would rather have Obama re-elected, with the possible impeachable offense hanging over him, than have a Republican President. It is just UFB.

Somehow the MSM need to be put on notice:

- If Obama is re-elected
- If revelations come out after Nov. 6th which would have cost him the election had they been reported earlier
- If it can be shown that the MSM sat on this information

Not only will many stop watching/reading that media, but there will be a sustained and organized boycott of all companies which sustain them through advertising!

If we want to appear honest here, someone should point out that CBS ran with the CSG story minutes after Fox did. It’s a prominently placed headline on the homepage and there are many associated stories listed on the cbs nightly news site.

Just saying.

The propagandists no longer deserve to be referred to as news. Need a better word. News quashers? News quellers? NBC Nightly Newsblockers?

I cannot think of a better reason to never watch or listen to that media again. They all are corrupt.
