Skip to comments.Mainstream media watchdogs are toothless covering Obama and Libya scandal
Posted on 10/27/2012 7:10:53 AM PDT by tobyhill
When Mitt Romney chose not to directly engage President Obama on Libya in last Mondays third presidential debate, the mainstream media wrote it off as over-caution on the Republican challengers part.
That might be true. Certainly a lot of Republicans think so.
But what is the mainstream medias excuse for cautiously engaging the president on Libya? Arent we supposed to be watchdogs? The ongoing story is story focused on whether the Obama administration provided, or refused to provide, adequate protection for the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya when it faced the threat of attack on Sept. 11. The attack left the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans dead. Subsequent conflicting accounts coming from the administration on how the White House responded, or didnt respond, are tailor-made for a full-blown media feeding frenzy.
Yet, the so-called media watchdogs so far have been mostly toothless.
Case in point: On Friday, FoxNews.com reported that it learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. consulate and subsequent attack several hours later on the annex itself was denied by the CIA chain of command... -- who also told the CIA operators twice to "stand down" rather than help the ambassador's team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11.

Toothless hell, they’ve stapled their own lips shut.
Do we know who gave the orders to stand down yet? Has Bohner demanded answers yet from Hilary or Obozo?
The media has deliberately chosen to suppress the facts about how the president refused to send military aid for Americans so as not to annoy his co-religionists.
The media has full knowledge of the facts. They have intentionally hidden the truth; they have chosen to protect the man they helped elect in 2008.
I wonder if it’s not time for folks to make signs, gather and protest in front of the WH. It looks like the POTUS chose not to defend and send help to US military personnel under fire, and chose to aid the Muslims. That is what it looks like based on what I have read. I could come to D.C. for one or two days but - I have Sick dad witha broken back about to be released from the hospital tomorrow. Need to rise up and force the issue.
Speaking of toothless. Hell, even senator pansy-graham has shown more testicular fortitude in the matter.
It’s like Woodward and Bernstein actively helping Nixon cover up Watergate.
Mainstream media watchdogs—No.
The supposed media watch”dogs” only show their fangs during a Republican administration. Otherwise, they are curled up nice and snuggly waiting for their “master” to give them a command.
They’re not “toothless”, they’re accomplices.
If “FOX” knew...they ALL knew. And that’s all one needs to know. His Marxist base will choose to ignore it. Hopefully the rest of America will not.
You know, it’s a cold, cruel world out there. Life and death struggles. Sadness and misery and pain. The media has looked at God, but they can’t understand how God could let this pain and misery go on. In step the Democrats. They’re like pimps to lonely teenage girls. They tell the media, “Oh....you’re right. There is a lot of bad stuff in the world. We Democrats want to change that. Those evil Republicans don’t care about you, but we do. Now you just take off your clothes and go with my friend here while I go buy a new car with the money he gave me. I’ll use the new car to deliver groceries to poor people. Honest I will. Would I lie? I love you, baby.”
Good thought, Doghead. Someone already wrote in and said there should be a giant protest at the White House with everyone holding a sign reading STAND DOWN! There was a song in the 50’s called the Great Pretender. We should all be singing that song, too, with a few adjustments in the prose.
Check the keyword for Benghazi....absolute torrents of articles and statements.
Saw an abbreviated Brett Baer Special Report on the Benghazi coverup ,...attack this morning.
Expect more to be shown tonight and Sunday ...believe at 10 pm EST.
