Surprise: CBS, ABC News Ignore Benghazi Bombshells

White House National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes is the brother of CBS News President David Rhodes. Ben Rhodes is the guy who helped rewrite Benghazi talking points in order to shift focus away from failed administration policies and onto an Internet video. He gave those talking points to former UN Ambassador Susan Rice, who went on five Sunday talk shows to lie to the American people about the attack.

Two major pieces of news surrounding Benghazi happened this week. The first: Emails showing Ben Rhodes edited talking points, proving the White House had a direct role in editing after a previous denial. The second: Retired Air Force Brigadier General Robert Lovell, who was in charge of Africa Command at the time of the Benghazi attack, said he was never given orders from the State Department to send help to Americans on September 11, 2012.

Guess who didn't mention any of this on their broadcast last night? CBS News. Other networks also failed to cover the story.

It's no surprise CBS News repeatedly squashed investigations into Benghazi by investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson. She left the network earlier this year.
