Obama's admission occurred a day after the Sept. 11 Benghazi incident. The clip also calls into question CBS' journalistic integrity for withholding crucial information from the American public - information that stood in contrast to the Obama administration's claims that four Americans, including ambassador Christopher Stevens, died as a result of a random demonstration outside the U.S. consulate.
Four days later, U.N. ambassador Susan Rice told a national audience on CBS' Face The Nation that the attacks were a result of random protests from an internet video. Days after the attack, Obama was also criticized for referring to attacks on U.S. embassies around the world as merely "bumps in the road". (YouTube Video)
Obama's admission suggests the White House deceived the U.S. congress and the voting public for nearly two weeks. CBS chose not to air the clip for over a month. However, the network aired Obama’s political attack on Republican challenger Mitt Romney that same night. (YouTube Video)
Romney had criticized the administration's handling of the Benghazi attack and questioned why officials, including the commander-in-chief, did not send in military support while dozens of American lives were in danger.
Part of the reason the media refuses to cover this story seriously is because they are guilty as well. They down played the attacks in real time to cover for Barack and to attack Mitt Romney. Not only did they do that, we now have proof that they did. If you have the President of the United States on tape admitting it was a terrorist attack, you have an obligation to air that. CBS News refused to.
All along the media has dismissed the attacks, has dismissed the deaths. They have done everything including telling you -- before an investigation has even been completed -- that there is no story here.
They have failed.
You would think the shame would be so much that they would get off their lazy asses and try to salvage their reputations.
Instead, it is ever more garbage from them.
They better grasp that people are paying attention. And not just right-wingers. I'm a Black leftist. And I'm paying attention and I'm seeing what's happening and it does not make me trust the media.
