(IBD) October Suppress: In-the-tank Media Gave 'Pathetic' Benghazi Coverage 2 Aid Obama
True Conservatives on Twitter ^ | November 6, 2012

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.

I can’t wait to hear the media, calling Romney a cowboy; when he uses a drone.

Then, out comes Cindy Shehan, all of a sudden, relevant again.
