I’m glad that we only have to (God willing) put up with this guy in the White House for a little while longer, ’cause I don’t think I could handle another four years.
More and more, our Media sounds like a thousand cats-in-heat on your back porch: high-pitched, annoying and more than a little unsettling. They are systematically steamrolling any negative news for President Precious, while they continue to push that day’s narrative regardless of how provably false it may be.
Over the weekend, the best example of this came from George Stephanopoulos on his ABC Sunday show, as he asked this question during a discussion on Benghazi:
“Hasn’t the White House been relatively transparent?”
I saw that quote and thought, “Naaahh… can’t be”. So, I looked it up: the transcript is HERE.
He was serious. Stephanopoulos was defending Obama’s complete two-week sock-puppet show on Benghazi and the video by saying…that the Administration had been “relatively transparent”. George wasn’t just asking it rhetorically; he wasn’t trying to play Devil’s Advocate to make a point.
I repeat: He. Was. Serious.
Given all of the facts which have already come to light on Benghazi, I find that question stunning. Are we to believe that he has simply taken the White House’s newest claims, which fly directly in the face of ALL the facts, and decided, “yeah, that sounds about right”?
I’ve seen more intellectual curiosity from my neighbor’s Yorkshire Terrier.
This is why I find it so laughable that Fox News is reviled by the Left for the high crime & misdemeanor of not being another outpost of DNC “Newspeak”. It’s like controlling almost the entire Monopoly board, and being miffed that you can’t get your mitts on Baltic Avenue, too.
Speaking of Newspeak, I was flipping through my copy of ‘1984‘ the other day, and I read a term which I’d forgotten. See if this parallels Mr. Stephanopoulos’s example above:
“blackwhite“– The ability to accept whatever “truth” the party puts out, no matter how absurd it may be. Orwell described it as “…loyal willingness to say black is white when party discipline demands this. It also means the ability to believe that black is white, and more, to know black is white, and forget that one has ever believed the contrary.”
I’d say that’s fairly accurate.
So, in the interest of further infuriating the Fox News haters, please allow me to share with you a special that was on over the weekend, hosted by Fox’s Bret Baier. It covers the entire Benghazi travesty and eventual charade, with tons of back-story details, most of which I’d not heard or seen yet.
It is troubling; it’s frightening; …and it’s the truth.
(**Thanks to AceOfSpadesHQ for the heads-up on this**)
The entire show is 41 minutes, but at least watch the first 10. You haven’t seen any of this anywhere else, I assure you.
Final question: if lil’ old Fox News can find this info, and do such a thorough job providing context, history, and multitudinous facts surrounding a terrorist attack which cost us 4 American lives and has emboldened our enemies, …why haven’t the bigger, better funded, network news organizations been able to do so?
Of course, you already know the answer to that one.
