CBS Hides Obama Refusal To
Call Benghazi Terrorist Attack

Investor's Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:HollowLeg, 11/6/2012 10:35:16 PM

Benghazi: In an astonishing display of media bias, CBS makes a mockery of journalistic ethics by hiding a portion of a "60 Minutes" interview proving the president lied from day one about calling Benghazi a terrorist attack. There must have been some knee-slapping guffaws at CBS when CNN's Candy Crowley corrected GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, falsely claiming President Obama did call Benghazi a terrorist attack on the very next day. CBS knew Obama was lying and had a tape to prove it. As part of a "60 Minutes" interview taped on Sept. 12,

Comments:
CBS turna a blind "eye" to the truth. Dan Rather, call your office.

The vast majority of the print and electronic media are a farce. Hopefully they will all be in unemployment lines this time next year.

they have failed this once great country.

Without any doubt, this handed Obama an almost sure reelection for the Presidency, any other outcome a miracle.

#1: they're not a farce, they're evil. I'm hoping there is something that can save us, and I'm going to continue to pray. Not that Romney wins, that's over, but that something can pull us out of this trajectory.

After this, Democrat voter fraud will be entrenched. To tell the truth, I think there was massive fraud this time around. I think Romney probably won on legit votes.

Sorry, Elvis has left building. CBS and the rest have won. This article is pointless. If Obama wins CO and it appears he will, he doesn't need Ohio, FLA or Va. He is going to win Oregon and Nevada easily. It's all over but the crying.

Sadly, I'm not sure the Benghazi issue would have cost Obama much support even if CBS had reported what they had.

It seems like a few careless comments about abortion, and nonsense ads against Bain Capital are what decides elections these days.

Sigh.

The saddest thing of all is that this country is heading for a double dip recession because of the tax and regulatory burdens and uncertainty. The losers will be the alphabet media. They offer nothing of value. I am also glad I live in a Red state that will not create an insurance exchange or implement the new Medicare program. I'm not sure it will matter when Obama passes an executive order that all states will tithe 5% to rescue the sinking blue states.

Hell Obama can't even be impeached since the repubs don't hold the majority in the senate, can he? I am literally crying for my once great country.

Lock and load people, like never before. Things are going to get ugly with astronomical gas prices, higher unemployment, no energy policy, high food prices and taxes scheduled to go sky high next January. Not to mention there's no repeal of the healthcare mess now.

Oh.....there will be lots of regrets in the coming years. The media will gnash its teeth as the White House snubs them. Now that the press has secured a second regime, Obama doesnt need the press.

And you know..... maybe we don't need coal and a Navy. Hear that Virginia? That's the sound of jobs draining out of your state when the fed discovers that it need those defense dollars for ObamaCare.

Ohio? Pennsylvania? Those coal jobs are going away and that car bailout was a temporary reprieve.

Florida? What has Florida EVER gotten from Obama? Now he doesnt need you.

#3 I completely agree with your comment: "After this, Democrat voter fraud will be entrenched. To tell the truth, I think there was massive fraud this time around."

The following is an excerpt from brushfires-of-freedom.com: by Paul Gable

There is no explanation that will satisfy Americans. What possible basis could there be for a late surge of support for Obama? A rise in the unemployment rate? Treason in Benghazi? Petulant performances in the debates that inspired Americans to be loyal to their President? Joe Biden’s inspirational contributions? A photo-op after a storm? Pravda will roll out a thousand justifications and rationalizations; they are not going to satisfy Americans.

All energy and enthusiasm was visibly on the side of Romney, yet Americans are going to be told to believe that on Election Day the thinking majority calmly calculated the safety and wisdom of sticking with Obama.


At this point, the House Republicans must start more investigations. They must tie Obama's hands as much as they can. Hopefully, we'll get some Senate help in 2014. Until then maybe some Senate filibusters.

You are so right--our moral compass is spinning off the face of the compass. Note the schedule of shows that remain on the A list--language, sex, violence beyond belief, and we as a nation continue to support the garbage that is provided as entertainment. I feel very sorry for our younger generation--it doesn't have a chance--and now it's only going to get worse for at least 2 years--I pray it's only 2 years.

Political Correctness: Its force structure decimated by sequestration and budget cuts, the Marine Corps considers exchanging its proud and honored look for hats similar to the gendarmes who direct traffic in Paris. If sequestration´s annual spending cuts continue past this year, the Marine Corps will lose 8,000 in troop strength, Commandant Gen. James F. Amos told the Defense Writers Group in June.

Junk Science: Al Gore, patron saint of climate fraud, argues with Australia´s prime minister that its brushfires are not caused by warming and that the record shows the koala bear, like the polar bear, is quite safe. They were the largest Australian bushfires in a populous region in recorded history, consuming half the state of Victoria, claiming 12 lives and destroying an estimated 1 million sheep and thousands of cattle.

If any state were to ban hydraulic fracturing, commonly referred to as fracking, the process that releases oil and natural gas trapped in porous shale formations, one would think it would be California.

By sheer coincidence, a plurality of the uninsured are likely Democratic voters.

But her recent appearance on Jon Stewart´s show on Comedy Central went about as well as ObamaCare´s train wreck of a rollout.

Energy Revolution: America´s natural gas boom threatens Russia´s economic strategy, an expert says, leaving it with few alternatives to rescue its economy while threatening to shatter its energy stranglehold on Europe. Russia´s abundance of energy resources has long allowed it to use energy both as a foreign policy weapon and as the bedrock of the Russian economy. Whenever energy prices rose, Russia benefited and its neighbors often felt the restraining leash of dependence on Russian energy, particularly natural gas. Government-controlled energy giant Gazprom was in such a strong position it could demand decade-long contracts

In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the
