Years from now historians will look back with disgust at a national mainstream media who never bothered to investigate the biggest scandal in U.S. political history. The story of their failure to investigate is perhaps more shocking and scandalous than the scandal itself.
How bizarre is the Benghazi scandal? The picture emerging now from the Congressional Hearings was clear to me, a small businessman, eight months ago. It was crystal clear. The truth would have brought down any Republican President. But with Obama as President, the media chose to look the other way.
The same media that viciously attacked Mitt Romney because he mentioned the London Summer Olympics might have security problems…the same media that acted as if Republican Senator Marco Rubio reaching for a water bottle during a televised speech was a national scandal -- that very same media thought the murder of four Americans, including an ambassador, and the massive cover-up of their murder was no big deal. Talk about bias; real life is stranger than fiction.
These Congressional hearings about Benghazi are only "explosive" to those who chose to ignore it when it first happened eight months ago. Actually, there is very little new. The most damning revelation is that we finally found out what happens when Hillary Clinton is woken at 2 AM by a national security emergency…
She immediately begins a murder cover-up.
But eight months ago, the national media channeled Sergeant Shultz of Hogan's Heroes ("I hear nothing. I see nothing"). CNN’s Candy Crowley went a step further- during a Presidential debate she lied on behalf of the President. That’s almost as bad as Hillary’s infamous statement, “What Does It Matter?” If a Fox News anchor lied for a Republican President their career would be over. But no one in the national media even questioned Clinton or Crowley.
The real shocker of Benghazi is proof positive that the media is so biased it’s even willing to be an accessory to a murder cover-up. Why? Because they had only one job to do: re-elect Obama. The national media decided they could not let a murder get in the way.
How do I know this was so obvious eight months ago? Because I’ve been writing publicly about Benghazi since September. This is no backseat driving. My published words are on the record.
Like when I wrote about Benghazi early last Fall for Breitbart.com…Here are the exact words I wrote.
