Newsbusters ^ | May 2, 2014 | Matthew Balan

On Friday, CBS Evening News caught up with its Big Three competitors and reported on the latest developments on the controversy surrounding the September 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. facility in Benghazi, Libya. CBS also finally mentioned its own president's family connection to a White House official involved in the Obama administration's handling of the immediate aftermath of the attack.

Nancy Cordes gave a full report on how the "the White House released previously unseen e-mails" about the federal government's response to the terrorist strike, which led to House Speaker John Boehner forming a new select committee to investigate the attack. Scott Pelley also disclosed that "Ben Rhodes, the White House deputy national security advisor mentioned in Nancy's story, is the brother of CBS News President David Rhodes."

Sounds and looks like the tide is turning. Even the media can’t ignore such blatant evidence without admitting that they are in 0bama’s pocket.

Yes, it is quickly arising to Watergate levels.

Oh happy day!
Clown Biden is on his way!

When asked about Benghazi Joe Biden replied “Who’s he?”

Not being able to help kill the story anymore by ignoring it has got to be causing a lot of anguish at cBS.

Don't count on it. We're probably more than a year from the first question asked and the Obama administration gone well before any determinations are made.

Criminal lawyer Neil Eggleston started his new job in the White House Monday.

On Tuesday the email was released. Obama knew what was coming down.

Not really. Give the mid-term dems a bit shorter rope. They are losing valuable time to defend themselves against all things Obama.

I believe that a president can be impeached even after he leaves office . . . strip him of his benefits.

He certainly needs to be criminally tried.

...strip him of his benefits.

Strip ALL congressional members of pensions, retroactively.

They should have never had these perks in the first place.

For one thing, I expect that when he is out of office we will see all the evidence proving that he is not a United States citizen - then we should see that criminal trial . . . unless he is safely ensconced in Kenya and untouchable.

In a week they’ll declare it to be ‘old news’. The government owns the media.
