CNN Airs “The Truth About Benghazi” –
But Fills The Story With Lies and
Deception – We Explain Why

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/8/2013 7:33:16 AM

You can get a deconstruction of the media at many places. The people who visit the Treehouse want to see the entire context; The entire truth, as it presents. So here we go…. In any endeavor of corruption and misleading governance, the control of, and support by, the media, is an absolute necessity. The USSR needed Pravda to keep the ruse of governance for decades. The need of/by the U.S. government has steadily grown over the course of several progressive decades; but the urgency has increased exponentially over the past five years with the extremes

Comments:
This important article is shocking in describing the lengths CNN went to hide the truth. I was proven right because I was skeptical when I read they were going to do a special on Benghazi. They can now be given credit for reporting this story without it being truthful. This is nothing more than propaganda and is designed so that 0bama and his regime are not shown to be complicit in hiding the truth. How unfortunate for our nation that we don´t have dogged investigative reporters like this in the MSM.

One of the very few times I viewed a program on the Collapsing News Network. I thought CNN´s story on Benghazi was a joke, way to fluffy, and way too protective of Obie Won.

Read this yesterday and had listened to the A. Jones show back sometime ago with the story about the CNN misrepresenting in their reporting. Glad to see this posted.

Thanks, OP.

It takes reading several sources on one subject and then using one´s own ability to filter the story anymore.

I watched the show. Erin Burnett asked tough questions. I was shocked that CNN would produce such a show about a subject that the WH would obviously like buried.
The Treehouse is guilty of cherry-picking facts here to build it´s case and in doing so they unfortunately lose credibility. It´s just as wrong to omit as it is to error in what´s reported.
The 1 hr show show featured a clip of Hillary in green THREE TIMES screeching, "What difference does it make?"! Under NO circumstances would the WH want her disastrous performance to be highlighted THREE times! Yet, The Treehouse ignores this and describes the show as "prime-time propaganda in the extreme."
There are many other examples of CNN´s surprising attempt at objectivity, which The Treehouse neglects to mention. Interviews with the families of the 4 killed Americans humanized Benghazigate and made Hillary and the WH appear even more inept or deceptive. How can that possibly be seen as BO propaganda?
I haven´t watched CNN in years. Although the show was not a stellar example of objectivity, it certainly was ENCOURAGING to see CNN take a (tiny) step in our direction.
Perhaps providing positive feedback for their attempt at fairness might be more constructive than railing against media bias and then omitting important facts to prove a point.

I didn´t watch it so I don´t know for certain but maybe the clip of Hillary was shown 3 times as a means of convincing viewers that it really doesn´t make any difference. After all, most CNN viewers think that she´s the smartest woman who ever walked the planet and if she says it, it must be true.

I thought the Benghazi story did present some difficult truths, but danced around the most important questions. They treated Obama like an innocent bystander - never raising the issue of his whereabouts being accounted for all through that night. They mentioned there were 35 survivors of the attack, but never wondered who they were, and why they have been silenced.

I share #9´s view that CNN did a lot better job than I expected... of course my expectations were low. Besides showing Hillary´s ineptness it did present the fact that there was a stand down order. No, it didn´t pursue who issued it, but then, we don´t know that and CNN isn´t going to join the VRWC and speculate.

Overall, I think it showed the administration as inept and out of touch.

Not that I am anywhere near shocked, but if CNN is getting paid by this Administration, how many other "news" outlets are doing likewise? This could easily explain why there is so much liberal bias: They´re being paid for it.

Not that they don´t list to port anyway, but sweetening the news pot with some extra big money would go a long way toward understanding why liberal outlets don´t dare jeopardize the cash flow by reporting the truth.

I hope this isn´t new news to those of us aware of the tactics of the MSM.

It is precisely what I conjectured when first learning of their piece - they would try to give their story credibility, somehow, and declare their version the truthful one, revealing nothing of note, and hoping thus to end discussion and investigation.

Who didn´t figure out this was their plan?

I didn´t watch it because of course it was going to be a Goebbels-like propaganda piece - sophisticated, but not nearly enough.

We haven´t watched cnn for decades but we did watch this production and observed how it minimized the following weeks & weeks of 0bama and Hillary´s insistence that a video was the cause for the attack. Rice and 0bama´s entire Administration continued that deceptive bogus lie and the lsm bombarded the airways with their fabrications, even after the truth was exposed. The lefty history revisionists are apparently already busy on this one.

Regarding the Benghazi attack, 0bama/Hillary and THEIR dem pols and THEIR dem media again displayed they have no shame and presenting the truth is NOT their game. They but display their pattern to COVER-UP, hide, obscure and lie about their relentless, now apparently ruthless, statist agenda & policy disasters.

I haven´t watched CNN in 20 years but did watch the Erin Burnett debacle. There were no "tough" questions. She did not point out anything new. She did not hold Obama and his dimwits accountable for their cowardly acts that night, resulting in the death of 4 Americans. She ended the show by blaming the lack of answers to Bengahzi on Obama´s election agenda and on the Republicans "seeking revenge". Huh? The Republicans were nowhere near Benghazi that night. No, there was no objectivity by Burnett.

I have here in my hand a list of six people who think Darrell Issa is a fellow traveler of Joseph McCarthy.

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

Sucking carbon dioxide out of the air might be used as a last-ditch attempt to stop global warming, UN scientists say. The technology is proposed as a ‘Plan B’ if Governments fail to cut carbon dioxide emissions by up to 70 per cent before 2050. Reducing greenhouse gases to manageable levels will cost up to four per cent of global GDP by 2030, according to a draft version of a report to be published in Berlin on Sunday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won his battle to graze cows on public land after a week-long stand off with federal agents. The Bureau of Land Management today said it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia members today continuing to gather in Nevada in a confrontation with federal agents. BLM Director Neil Kornze said: ´Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on
