In the past I’ve written about the fact that the mainstream media does not report selected aspects of the news, but the recent virtual blackout concerning the tragedy in Benghazi, Libya is truly outrageous!
The real facts that have come out thus far from Fox News are as follows:
It was a planned terror attack on our embassy. Since our embassy is literally on U.S. soil (as all embassies are everywhere), this attack was an act of war.
Our ambassador, along with three other U.S. citizens, were murdered by the terrorists.
Our government, top down, reported the attack was by an angry mob that spontaneously reacted to a nasty video by a private person from the U.S. about Islam.
This message came from President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice and Jay Carney, Obama’s press secretary.
Seventeen days after the attack, Obama admitted it was a planned terrorist action, and not a mob attack.
He has stated the matter is still under investigation, and will be completed on Nov. 17, which is after the election!
There were hundreds of emails between our embassy in Benghazi and the U.S. powers at large, asking for help before and during the seven hour attack.
The British Embassy and Red Cross closed prior to the attack, and the U.S. was left open and unprotected.
Requests for help were denied, and our troops told to stand down.
This horrible act of terror was all but ignored by the mainstream media, presumably to protect Pres. Obama from criticism just prior to the Nov. 6 election.
Fox News and CNN have been reporting on it in depth continually since its occurrence on 9/11/12 (anniv. of 911).
So, what about it?
The outcome of the lack of reporting by CBS, ABC, NBC (MSMBC) has resulted in citizens not knowing about it because they watch only these mainstream media.
What they don’t know, they don’t know.
Having checked on the weak mainstream coverage, it was determined that they reported but a tiny bit on the “event”, with CBS giving 20 seconds, and ABC 26 seconds of air time on the subject.
To check it out, I spoke with several people I know who watch only mainstream media channels, and learned that virtually all of them either hadn’t heard about it, or felt it was no big deal.
To me, this verified that those who watch only CBS, ABC or NBC (MSMBC) were simply unaware of the situation.
Therefore, I kindly ask all people who watch or read only mainstream media to begin tuning into Fox News or CNN as well
They will surely be exposed to another side of the news.
I watch/read them all, and can state unequivocally that there is a huge difference.
Give it a try, and you will get a more fair and balanced exposure to the news.
Keeping the news from the American people must stop.
