Miami Florida Media ignores Benghazi...how about YOUR local news?
5/9/13 | SFF

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?


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Local News
KEYWORDS: benghazi; benghazihearings; bias; media; mediabias; miami; navyseals; newsblackout; spiked; threatmatrix; vanity
Just curious....wonder if the media in other cities is as leftist as Miami's.....

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)

Haven't watched local news channels in about 15 years.

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.

Any Benghazi coverage was wiped out by the 3 Cleveland girls and Jodi Arias guilty verdict.

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

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.

Our local Gannett newsrag had it front page, top. With a decidedly lefty spin.

Partisan Fight Flares Over Libya Assault.

A clear attempt to influence the low-info public to believe that it is a Republican witch hunt.

The hours-long hearing produced no major revelation while reviving disputes over the widely debunked comments made by U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice five days after the attacks and the inability of the U.S. military to respond quickly.

Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/05/08/3386428/gop-benghazi-probe-stokes-political.html#storylink=cpy

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.
