MSNBC Is Now Admitting There MAY Be Something To This Whole Benghazi Thing
The Daily Caller ^ | 4/30/14 | Brendan Bordelon

Posted on 04/30/2014 11:14:29 PM PDT by Nachum

MSNBC host Alex Wagner — who for months, if not years, routinely denied there was anything to Republican allegations of a White House coverup on Benghazi — now admits there MAY actually be a problem with the Obama administration’s response to the 2012 attack.

“There probably is something for Republicans to complain about,” she said regarding Benghazi, “for the American public to perhaps be distressed or dismayed about.”

But she hastened to add that Republicans “have effectively ceded all legitimacy on the issue” by refusing to budge on such a “fringy” topic — leaving out her key role in pushing the story to the fringe.

On Tuesday, government watchdog Judicial Watch released emails between top White House advisers and former U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, documents earlier withheld by the Obama administration and only released after a lengthy fight in federal court.

The emails coached Rice on talking points for an upcoming Sunday show blitz and ordered her to explain that the attacks were the result of an isolated YouTube incident unrelated to President Obama’s broader anti-terror policies.

They won't have to spin it. Another distraction like MH370 will rise to the top of the charts.

That’s the nature of presented news. Manipulation of the public consciousness. Amplified in today’s world of fast moving and immense information resources exemplified by shallow institutional memory and stagnative thinking.

I just made that up. I really have no clue.

Meh. I watched the clip. Not the way I took it. I took it more as an “even if” statement.

They still think it was absolutely nothing.

Did MSNBC make any effort to get the facts on Benghazi, or did it simply regurgitate the White House spin?

. . . not that it should matter to Democrats, of course . . .

It’s appalling that there has been no political price paid by Obama for publicly, in an international forum in the UN, heaping contempt on the First Amendment. It just goes to show that the general public doesn’t understand the constitution of our liberties at all.

“ceded all legitimacy”

How do you cede legitimacy on an issue after it comes to light that you were - and still are — right on the issue?

MSNBC and a host of other liberal outlets will “mention” it briefly in “news of the day” and you will probably never hear another word from them. They have a bit of egg on their faces and have to acknowledge it MIGHT have happened as Fox has reported.

Which means they have "exhaustively explored" the topic and it is now "old news". The mainstream media will use the latest revelations as an excuse to finally declare Benghazi as being "over".

The MSM is one of the biggest “Gaslighting” operations in all of history.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaslighting

[ Gaslighting is a form of mental abuse in which false information is presented with the intent of making a victim doubt his or her own memory, perception and sanity. Instances may range simply from the denial by an abuser that previous abusive incidents ever occurred, up to the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim. ]

MSM is the Gaslighting MEDIA COMPLEX!!!!!
