Skip to comments.Miami Florida Media ignores Benghazi...how about YOUR local news?
Posted on 05/09/2013 6:26:58 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Been doing some quick looks at the local news coverage....ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC.....
Basically NOTHING on the murder of our people in Libya....about 30 seconds worth among all the stations......
How did YOUR stations do?
All but ignored in upstate NY. One little column.
Surprisingly, our local paper had it at the top of the National sidebar.
I don’t really watch local news but they do have them on the front pages of their websites (not headline but it is there)
Jodia Arias GUILTY!!!
3 girls were kidnapped in Cleveland....
Michael Jackson talked with God before he died...
2 Carnival Line Cruise passengers are missing...
Don't even know if my area carries local news.
just kidding. Of course we have local news. Where else am I going to get information on how to crack emu eggs?
If a Benghazi like event had occurred on a Republican’s watch, MSM.gov would be all over it. It would be wall-to-wall saturation coverage.
I would have to buy one to find out ... LOL ...
Any Benghazi coverage was wiped out by the 3 Cleveland girls and Jodi Arias guilty verdict.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
You forgot that caffeine chewing gum story
-Penguins make goalie switch for Game 5 of playoff series with Islanders.
-Police search for Lawrenceville home invasion suspects.
-Motorcyclist killed in turnpike crash.
-March of Dimes collection can stolen from local restaurant
-Mayor Luke Ravenstahl’s former bodyguards appear before grand jury in corruption probe.
-New Chevrolet showroom opens
....nope, nothin’ ‘bout it here.
HLN with Robin Meade (wife likes her, and I cannot argue, she’s easy on the eyes) struggled to discuss Benghazi for all of about 30 seconds.
They had multiple live shots from Cleveland, including a lilly-white female adopting a Spanish accent to report on the Castro man.
The next 20 minutes were all about the damn Arias trial and verdict. Special counsel, psychiatrists....ridiculous.
We all knew what the answer to this question was going to be well before the hearings.
Obama could start lining up Christians on the front lawn of the white house and gun them down with AK-47s, and the media would still protect him.
As a general observation, it’s amusing to watch reporters all try to act like experts on everything they cover. Regardless of the subject matter surrounding the event — storms, earthquakes, criminology, economics, law, etc. — they all strive to give the impression that they are on top of the story with all the details, but in reality its nothing more than superficial regurgitation of flimsy information. Ironically, the inconsequential sports world is usally well covered by knowledgeable reporters. LOL
Ben Gazzarra. He was an actor of some sort.
I monitored the radio talk shows. The guy (talkie) who did the best job was Savage. He covered most of the bases including LEAP the discharges of an Admiral and a couple of Generals after which he would intersperse Dinnah Washington’s “What A Difference A Day Makes” first two lines of her recording to punctuate his points.
Rush came on while hearings were going on. Both he and Levin didn’t reference those military officers relieved of command or LEAP. If fact Rush’s 1st segment began while the hearings started running and his subject was the Readers Digest poll of celebrities most trusted to tell the truth . Which I thought was strange.
Not where I live
Few papers are as far left as the herald. Its been slowly dissolving for years. Were it ot for El Herald it would already be gone.I thnkthe old herald buidingis gone as well.They will wind up in a double-wide before its over.
For the ultimate laughathon here's the “political” section of the “herald”. No mention of Benghazi,guess they forgot.....

I did. The above is what I found. The hearld's(no caps necessary) take on Benghazi is that "no major revelations were found" but there was that pesky "inability of the U.S. military to respond quickly"(its hard to respond quickly when you are told not to by superiors!!) They did reference Rice's idiotic comments but the overall thrusts, as usual for the hearld, is to shift everything they can to the left/in favor of the regime,nothing new here.
Yep. I don’t read the Pittsburgh newspapers, but a cursory glance at their websites & those of the three news channels reveals NO mention of yesterday’s hearings.
My mother in Johnstown reports that the story made page A10 of the Johnstown Tribune-Democrat, and it was only a tiny story.
I’m outraged at the death of outrage. The public should really be storming DC with pitchforks & torches after this, but they’d have to miss Anerican Idol so never mind.
