Is a More Fair Mainstream News Media Here to Stay?
Yet another non-conservative news organization finally starting to break things down for the American people, too bad the mainstream news media lost all their credibility in 2012 by ignoring these scandals, which were in existence BEFORE the election. Much of what people are hearing for the first time is nothing new, these stories and others were available on non mainstream news sources for months and years.
Will we see stories come back to light in the coming months? Perhaps “Solyndra Revisited” or “Fast & Furious 2, More Furiously Investigated”. Of course that would assume our mainstream news media’s temporary realization that it might have a shred of integrity to salvage is permanent. But the past sure is disheartening. If only ABC, CBS, NBC, the Associated Press and others cared more about the truth than politics perhaps the public would not feel like a bunch of suckers for blindly trusting our current Administration. Instead of these stories, our news media felt that Mitt Romney potentially bullying some kid in high school was more worthy of their journalist’s full attention. What a disgrace.
Only now that the presidency is secure and these scandals are too large to sweep under the rug have some decided to finally start doing their job. But, for how long? That part remains to be seen.

THE capital is in the throes of déjà vu and preview as it plunges back into Clinton Rules, defined by a presidential aide on the hit ABC show “Scandal” as damage control that goes like this: “It’s not true, it’s not true, it’s not true, it’s old news.”
The conservatives appearing on Benghazi-obsessed Fox News are a damage patrol with an approach that goes like this: “Lies, paranoia, subpoena, impeach, Watergate, Iran-contra.”
… After his Libyan intervention, President Obama knew he was sending diplomats and their protectors into a country that was no longer a country, a land rife with fighters affiliated with Al Qaeda.
Yet in this hottest of hot spots, the State Department’s minimum security requirements were not met, requests for more security were rejected, and contingency plans were not drawn up, despite the portentous date of 9/11 and cascading warnings from the C.I.A., which had more personnel in Benghazi than State did and vetted the feckless Libyan Praetorian Guard. When the Pentagon called an elite Special Forces team three hours into the attack, it was training in Croatia — decidedly not a hot spot.
