We Need To Remember What
The Lapdog Media Considers
The OTHER Half Of It's Job
It's not just slanting the news they DO cover with fancy edits - like those that just got NBC News President Steve Capus fired.
No, there's another whole side to how the Lapdog Media goes about being the propaganda arm of the DNC & the White House. It's by how they decide what ISN'T news.
And the past week has provided several sterling examples of this:
1. Where are the Benghazi survivors? - The pre-planned, organized terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi on 9/11/12 was over four months ago. Congress convened hearings 2 1/2 months ago on how Benghazi happened, who was responsible and what can be done to prevent it's happening again.
While 4 Americans died in this terrorist attack, 30+ managed to escape alive - chiefly due to the heroic actions of two men who fell in the attack, Tyrone Woods and Glenn Doherty. You would think the eyewitness testimony of the survivors of the attack would be pretty pertinent information in figuring out what happened that night.
Unless of course what happened that night is a story that must never be told because it would contradict the Obama Administration's already quite public version of how Benghazi went down.
- They have denied repeatedly that they refused to send any help to Benghazi while the attack was underway while refusing to say if they did in fact receive any communications requesting aid.
- They have denied that Woods & Doherty were ordered to stand down and stay at the CIA Annex building, a direct order that Woods & Doherty then disobeyed.
- They claimed for almost a month afterwards there was 'no evidence' that Benghazi was a planned terrorist attack while simultaneously blaming a 'YouTube video' for causing a 'spontaneous demonstration' that got out of hand. This despite the fact not one shred of evidence has ever surfaced there was ANY kind of demonstration anywhere near our consulate on 9/11/12.
Eyewitness testimony from people under oath who were there day would likely contradict many of the claims Obama & Co. have been making since the event occurred.
Yet the media can't seem to get interested in why over 4 months after the fact not a single one of the Benghazi survivors has come before Congress to testify about what really happened that awful night. Senators & House Reps. have complained repeatedly about this, trying to get an answer from both the White House and the State Dept. about why their repeated requests to talk to these Benghazi survivors haven't produced any witnesses.
According to Google, note it's only the New Media asking where the Benghazi survivors are:
Which Media Outlets Are Asking Why No Testimony From Benghazi Survivors?
As it stands right now, the complete stonewalling of the White House on this could lead to the Congressional committee investigating Benghazi subpoenaing the Administration to discover who these survivors are so they can testify about what happened that night.
If that happens the sight of the MSM struggling to explain to the people that follow it why Congress is having to FORCE the White House to let these people testify about what happened will be fun to watch.
2. The Menendez Scandal - a sitting Democratic Senator was revealed to be under investigation by the FBI since June of last year for accepting illegal favors from a big political donor and engaging in sex with prostitutes in the Dominican Republic after being flown down there on this donor's own private jet. This story actually broke last November when Drudge Report & The Daily Caller revealed it.
Daily Caller Story From November 1, 2012
New allegations surfaced two weeks ago of other illegal favors and the fact the FBI investigation of Menendez was still ongoing. One new twist was that now the investigation had found evidence several of the prostitutes in this story were underage. The New Media covered this for two weeks while the Old Media sniffed and ignored it, claiming there was still no story here.
Despite the fact this news first broke last November, the MSM couldn't get interested in this Menendez scandal until 2 things happened:
1. The FBI investigation was revealed to ongoing and to have turned up plenty of new allegations besides the DR sex parties with underage girls.
2. Last week the big donor's business was under FBI surveillance & when a truck from a paper shredding service pulled up out front the building was quickly raided to prevent the destruction of any evidence.
Readers Of NYT's Go "Prostitution Scandal? What Prostitution Scandal? 1st I've Read Of This In The NYT's!
Forced to cover the scandal at this point, the MSM has limited itself to merely discussing Menendez's denials of any wrong doing. Had this been a Republican caught doing this, you can rest assure the Lapdog Media would be rushing investigative journalists to the Dominican Republic and New Jersey to start furiously digging.
Of course, there's no reason to do any furious digging into the story here because the it's the wrong sort of target.
3. IRS report projects that in 2016 the cheapest family health insurance plan will be $20,000 - When he was selling his Obamacare monstrosity to the American public, Obama was fond of saying his new boondoggle would 'bend the cost curve downward'. He also threw out the figure $2,085 a few times as being the 'cheapest' family plan's cost.
Last week the IRS released an official report after crunching all the numbers and said the cheapest family health insurance plan for a family will be $20,000.
So turns out according to the IRS Obama was only off by a factor of 10.
And as yet, over 5 days after the IRS released this report, not one Lapdog Media outlet has breathed a word about it:
Google Search For 'IRS Report Family Insurance Plan $20,000
Anyone solely trusting the MSM for important news impacting them and their family is gonna be in for one hell of a shock later on while people who surf the net and don't participate exclusively in the Big Brother Media Complex will be much better informed.
Well there you have it.
Last week the MSM decided to cover these 3 important stories with the overwhelming sound of......*crickets*.
The Lapdog Members of the Big Brother Media Complex are VERY well aware of what the OTHER half of their job is, even if plenty of people haven't realized it yet.
