The mainstream media didn’t find Wednesday’s Benghazi hearing quite as “explosive” as Fox News predicted they would be. So today, Megyn Kelly and her guest, conservative Media Research Council VP Dan Gainor looked into why so many media outlets appeared to dismiss the testimony as nothing new.
Kelly showed Gainor some headlines from outlets like the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, USA Today and others that she felt didn’t take the hearing quite as seriously as they should have. “If you look at, sort of across the mainstream media, it was a collective yawn in response to yesterday’s Benghazi coverage.”
Gainor said “this is a continuation” of the media’s “policy to minimize a scandal that makes Hillary Clinton look really bad,” essentially an effort to protect her before she runs for president in 2016. “The media have always loved Hillary.”
Fox News was not the only Right Wing propaganda site to get their knickers ins was over this, I also heard Limbaugh and Beck lose their collective pea sized minds over the fact that the MSM was not jumping through the flaming hoops that they were holding up.
Here is my favorite part from Kelly:
Another example of media bias on the Benghazi issue that got under Kelly skin was a tweet sent out by the Washington Post that claimed only “rich, middle-aged men and Chick-fil-A lovers” were using the #Benghazi hash tag. Kelly said when someone first told her about it, she thought, “there is no way this really happened,” and is now shocked that the Post hasn’t apologized.
Of course as all of you know the first person to get their noses bent out of shape about that tweet was none other than the Wasilla Wendigo herself.
Let's face it, this thing was advertised as the biggest potential scandal since Watergate, and after all was said and done it did not even rise to the level of "Fast and Furious-gate."
In fact things got so desperate for the Republican talking points that the disgraced ex-Vice President Dick Cheney himself decided to chime in with a suggestion that the Republicans shoot their wad and subpoena Hillary Clinton. You know because HE is totally about accountability and everything.
Personally I think that if the Republicans believe that this thing is going to derail Clinton's 2016 aspirations or ruffle her feathers in any way, they don't know Hillary!
