RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, we talk about the mainstream media on this program a lot. I oftentimes talk in a very celebratory manner about how we busted up the media monopoly. In 1988 when this program started, this was the only national media program that featured an alternative point of view: Conservatism. Everywhere else it was identical.
It was the same. You had the three networks and you had the big newspapers and the magazines. The only cable network was CNN. Starting in 1988, the success of this program then bred additional radio talk shows -- then Fox News, then the blogosphere -- to the point their monopoly is gone. They don't have the monopoly. But they still have, sadly, an incredible amount of power
I think people... Not that you do, but I think there's some people on our side of the aisle who, because their monopoly's gone, don't take quite as seriously as they should the real benefit to Obama of having these people in the tank for him. It's huge. Well, I'm here to tell you that if this media was in any way what they pretend to be -- if they were objective -- Obama wouldn't be anywhere near where he is. Really.
There are people in this country -- and they vote, and there are sizeable number of them -- who still only watch the three network nightly newscasts and only read the newspapers. That's it. They do not avail themselves of the New Media, what I call "partisan media." I don't mean that in derogatory way, but we obviously have a point of view here. So I'd call myself "partisan media." They don't pay attention to it. Some don't even know it exists. So I'd call myself partisan media.
They don't pay attention to it. Some don't even know it exists. If they do, they don't, for whatever reason, want any part of it, or the left either. The think that the Drive-By Media is it, still fair, balanced, the whole thing, and it's their Bible, and there are a lot of them. And I'm telling you it is a huge advantage for Obama. It's major. So when something happens there that goes against Obama, it has the potential to be just as huge as all the support, and that's what this CNN interview is. The CNN interview with the mother of one of slain Americans in Benghazi is a powerful thing, and it's the kind of thing if it would happen every day -- and there's opportunities for it every day. If this media were not in the tank for Obama and hadn't been all along, it would be an entirely different world that we live in. It would be an entirely different country.
I always like to say I'm doing the job they used to do, which is true. You get more sides of an issue presented to you on this show than you do in the mainstream media. But at the same token, if they weren't doing what they're doing, market-wise there wouldn't be a place for me. So I'm kinda torn. When we come back we'll start with the audio sound bites of this mother of the slain American, and you realize this thing aired on CNN. That is gonna have far much more impact than if it aired on Fox.
RUSH: Folks, this is very hard to listen to. It's tear-jerking. It's also gonna make you mad. It's going to infuriate you. This is last night on Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN. He interviewed Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, computer specialist killed at the US consulate in Benghazi. Anderson Cooper said, "Who told you that they would give you information about Sean's death?"
SMITH: Obama told me. Hillary promised me. They promised me. I told them, "Please, tell me what happened, just tell me what happened." I told them, "Please, don't give me any baloney that comes through with this political stuff." And I still don't know. In fact, today I just heard something more that he died of smoke inhalation. I look at TV and I see bloody handprints on walls thinking, my God, is that my son's? They haven't told me anything. They're still studying it, and the things that they are telling me are just outright lies. That Susan Rice, she talked to me personally, and she said, "This is the way it was, it was because of this film that came out."
RUSH: They're purposely lying to this mother. Their son died because of this movie. Their son did not die because of a movie. He died because of a terror attack that our consulate was not prepared for. It's no more complicated than that. Who is this woman, Pat Smith? She's an American. Her son is killed in action. She's a real woman. You know, these people, Obama, Susan Rice, everybody, the political class, the elites, whatever they want, they can have. The House dining room, Senate dining room, get whatever they want, doesn't cost much. Health care, they don't have to worry about it. Take an Air Force plane to fly home, Air Force One, what have you.
Mother of slain State Dep't official is tired of being ignored by Obama Admin
These are people that get thrilled in life over things that the political class in this country takes for granted. The political class probably makes fun of going to McDonald's or Olive Garden. To these people it might be a treat. These are real Americans. I mean, this woman, who knows what her economic circumstances are. But her son's dead, killed in action because this government did not care enough or wasn't smart enough to take adequate security precautions at an embassy on 9/11. When family sees its son or daughter go off to the military, the one thing that they always trust is that their country's looking out for 'em, that their government's personally invested because they so appreciate the gesture, the volunteering that takes place when people join the military.
These are real people. Their lives are not glamorous. They're probably very hard right now, most people's lives are. They don't have time to be worried about focus groups and how they look on television and whether or not they were polite enough in the debate or whatever. The political class lives in an entirely different universe, and it's one of privilege and entitlement compared to the people who make this country work and to the people who have as members of their family volunteers who join the military, to defend and protect everybody else. All this woman wants to know -- she's not asking for anything. She just wants to know what happened. Why is her son dead? How did it happen? And they still have the gall to tell her it's a video.
Don’t expect 0, the media, or 0’s buddies to feel remorse over this. They don’t give a $$$t. For them, it’s only one White man sacrificed on the altar of political correctness.
Why isn’t the media carrying this?
Will the slain Seals’ mother criticize her After all, she called her own son’s death “a bump in the road”.
The dead Americans and their families are merely “collateral damage.”
Seriously, this regime makes me miss the Bush years, at least Bush II had a clue about the fact that regardless of whether or not he really cared, at least send the message that you do. This administration, however, is so fixated on being indefinitely re-elected that it doesn’t even have that level of courtesy. If it actually had that, we’d be in a totally different story.
Have any of the families received autopsy results?
Go look at the video on youtube. It says “comments are disabled for this video”. Isn’t that special, the low down scum!
I don’t like hating people. But I can’t help but hate democrats. And that includes democrat voters. After the way they treated this mother there’s no reason ANYONE should vote for obama. I despise everyone who does.
I don’t hate democRats. I despise them
