Fox News’s Benghazi bombshell:
Why haven’t other media followed?

Washington Post, by Eric Wemple

Original Article

Posted By:Emerson, 11/1/2012 9:05:50 PM

First in a sprawling series on Fox News’s Oct. 26 Benghazi story. It happens now and again in the world of news. An organization comes up with a stunning news report, and other outlets decline to follow up on the news. They just stay quiet. A number of scenarios are possible: (Snip) Last Friday, Fox News came up with a conversation-driver. A piece under the byline of reporter Jennifer Griffin opened with these revelations: Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex

This in interesting and at an unusual source, but it is impossible to grasp from the headline and the intro alone. Reading is recommended. It's not long.

I agree with the Special Report panel. Mitt must speak out on this.

MRC President Brent Bozell said it best:

“ABC, CBS, NBC, The Washington Post, and the New York Times are so vested in the re-election of Barack Obama that they are deliberately spiking this huge story. It’s sickening.”

Be sure to get those names into the tapestry, Madame DeFarge.

Everybody knows the score by now. The American news media, Fox excepted, have long since been Barack Obama's Praetorian guard, whose function is to protect him at all costs - even if it means sacrificing themselves. They elected him. They own him. It is too late for them to back out now, much as some would probably like to do. Better, they think, to wade on to the other shore than to go back. And they have shown remarkable, in fact uncanny discipline, determination and ingenuity in shielding and propping him up until now. They have done a fantastic job of misrepresenting Barack Obama, misleading the American public and shielding him from the slightest criticism.

But...

...they will do anything for love, but they can't do this. That is, they cannot save him from Benghazi. This is the Big One, the Bunker Buster. They have tried to protect him with all the resources at their command, but the truth keeps coming out as more leaks keep springing in all directions. There are not enough journalists and investigative reporters, i.e. reporters who work to discover discrediting information about leakers and Obama critics, to plug all the leaks. Like it or not -and we may be sure they do not like it at all- the mainstream(!) media is going to have to join the posse on this one. It has all the signs of being a tsunami that will wash Obama and his cronies -including those awful Clintons and their camp followers- out of office for good.

Sorry #1 but what is preventing reporters from reporting on this without Mitt bringing up. The first time he mentions it all those who are ignoring the story will be screaming that Mitt is politicizing a tragedy. No, he should stay focused on the economy and jobs.

The enemedia is sleeping, saving up their energy to deal with the possibility that their hated enemy, Mitt Romney may win the election in spite of the best efforts of the dead in Chicago and other Democrat assets.

We can be sure that the enemedia will be going all out to put a Romney Presidency under the microscope, and will no doubt need all the energy they can muster.

It is not Romney's place to raise this. That would be a sign that he didn't think he could win on the issues that he has been pressing since he first started his campaign. It would, if anything, raise Obama's 'sympathy' vote, because there is not enough time to actually get into the the issue. The LSM would NOT be forced to investigate, they would use the fact that Romney raised what they would call a 'nutty conspiracy theory' at the end of the campaign - which they would crow is a sign of Romney's desperation.

I have been following this story (on Fox, of course) since it first broke. My indignation and fury has built with each new revelation. It's not precisely the same thing, but I spent most of my adult life as a police officer, and you never leave your people hanging. I remember many white knuckle drives at 110 mph because a fellow officer was in trouble and needed assistance. It's what you do.

As near as I can determine, in Benghazi, the fact that people were in trouble was over ridden by ideological and political motives - and the fact that the MSM is willing to ignore the story for similar reasons - only serves to rub salt in the wound!

If the media thought investigations into Benghazi would make barry look good they would be investigating & reporting the story. They KNOW this is a screw up of massive proportions which highlights the fact that barry is an incompetent liar therefore they're ignoring the story as if barry's election depends on it.

As far as it being Mitt's responsibility, I say pfffffffft. If Mitt talked about it he would become the story, he would be ridiculed for politicizing the tragedy. We all saw how the media pounced after he made the statement the day after the attacks. The media hounded him for almost a week, reporting on what Romney said instead of investigating barry's dereliction of duty.

In ‘Noah,’ a hard rain
Boston Globe, by Ty Burr    Original Article

Most religious movies feel as if they’re made by a church committee, but every now and then a wild-eyed prophet wanders in and rattles the theater with brimstone. Regardless of your feelings about either movie, Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” qualifies and so does Martin Scorsese’s “The Last Temptation of Christ.” Now director Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan,” “The Wrestler”) has ascended to the mountaintop and returned with the strangest, most visionary cinematic parable yet. “Noah” is equal parts ridiculous and magnificent, a showman’s folly and a madman’s epic. It elaborates on the Book of Genesis’s slender story of Noah

Mexico City — Just before 7 a.m. on Saturday, dozens of soldiers and police officers descended on a condominium tower in Mazatlán, Mexico, a beach resort known as much as a hangout for drug traffickers as for its seafood and surf. The forces were following yet another tip about the whereabouts of one of the world’s most wanted drug kingpins, Joaquín Guzmán Loera — known as El Chapo, which means “Shorty” — who had eluded such raids for 13 years since escaping from prison, by many accounts in a laundry cart. With an army of guards and lethally enforced loyalty, he reigned over a worldwide, multibillion-dollar drug empire

SOCHI, Russia — The official mascots for the Winter Olympics are a polar bear, a hare and a leopard. But walk around the complexes that will stage the Games here, with the opening ceremony Friday, and what seem more apt are a hand drill, a backhoe and a shovel. Much of Sochi is a work in progress, and parts of it look at least a dozen all-nighters away from completion. There are unfinished hotels, half-finished stores and a mall where the only shop that is open and thriving is a Cinnabon. Wander the premises over the course of a day

Justin Bieber’s mansion reportedly was stuffed with drugs and paraphernalia when cops rolled up to serve an egging-related search warrant last week. Two large cookie jars loaded with marijuana sat in plain view of the dozen detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, an unidentified source told TMZ.com. The notorious party palace also contained four or five empty codeine bottles along with empty Fanta bottles, TMZ said. The Fanta bottles appeared to be discolored by the codeine, a sign they were used to mix the narcotic drink Sizzurp, also called “lean.” Luckily for the Biebs, the deputies were raiding the house for surveillance

Jeff Ireland is out as the Miami Dolphins´ general manager. The team announced Tuesday it has mutually agreed to part ways with Ireland, who had been a controversial figure since being named GM in 2008. (Snip) The Dolphins haven´t been to the playoffs since 2008, finishing 7-9, 7-9, 6-10, 7-9 and 8-8 since. They needed to win one of their final two games to make the postseason this season but lost to the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets. That cost offensive coordinator Mike Sherman his job Monday and surely contributed to Ireland's ouster a day later.

As No. 1 Florida State and No. 2 Auburn prepare in Southern California to meet Monday in the last BCS championship game, the University of Texas is still looking for a new football coach.

The resignations, coming only hours after the ministers welcomed Mr. Erdogan at the Ankara airport as he returned from Pakistan late on Tuesday, were enough to inspire new talk of a deepening crisis, which Mr. Erdogan has repeatedly denounced as a foreign plot.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

"This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the
