Call me jaded on Benghazi coverage

That is, not on Benghazi story itself.

It seems there are a few notions floating out there in the media, distilling like swamp water. One is that Americans aren’t really tuned in or that aware of Benghazigate. Really? A few on Fox are peddling that one. In other words, what’s it take for American to pay attention to this and will they? I.e. “what can we do to make them pay attention?”

Someone missed the boat on that one, people are aware of it and more so aware of the big sack of lies that it is. And they know that four people were killed and an ambassador was assassinated…and that it wasn’t over a video. But I digress on that point. They know and care. (and people who don’t, there are always going to be some of those…there was with Watergate)

The other is selling this hearing process, complete with whistleblowers, as the be all end all. Lindsey Graham is a big salesman for that telling us the dam is about to break.’Stay tuned.’ Sorry Senator, heard that enough before. How many times have we heard that? I’m from Missouri now.

Yet another is just how big or important the story is, as if it has to rate on the Richter scale to qualify the story. Sorry, some of the best and biggest stories are ones Dems tend to or try to ignore as a flea bite. One thing I know is you cannot judge a story by how much the libs or mainstream media cares about them.

Remember the little nothings about the Tea Parties. There are a few, even in conservative media, who depend on Liberals’ rating system. Remember, from the folks who thought Mitt Romney’s doggy ride on the car was the bomb? Or the people who swooped in on Romney’s words about the 47%, and they now salute the guy who uncovered that “story” as a “national hero”? They still credit him with Romney’s loss.

So following the MSM and progressives jig does not do anyone justice. If anything it might be an indicator of how much the Left ignores or dismisses a story as to how important it is.

That said, following the Republicans lead on stories has not proved a huge value indicator either. They have promised a lot in the last years that they failed to deliver on, start with ObamaCare and think fast and furious. But it was not for lack of opportunities, they just could not prosecute and close the deal to an already jaded public. (some of us wonder if that was by intention or not)

Now many Repubs assure us that Benghazigate is a Watergate level story. Well, bust my bridges and tell me something I don’t know. But treat it like one, don’t just bloviate about how big it is. And see it through, unlike the other opportunities you’ve had to make the case on this Liar in Chief residing in 1600 Pa Ave. Or, as Nike says, Just do it. But it doesn’t take a political genius to know its a huge deal. People died, then they lied.

So Lindsey, when someone says the damn is about to break, show me the water. Don’t just cry me a river. Too many times Americans have expected action only to be disappointed. If all this chameleon liar has done does not confirm our worst suspicions, then shame on us. But instead of retreating at the intersection of spin central, press onward. Probe with bayonets not lollipops.

  1. Agreed, bud: Death, Lies and cover-up.
    If THAT isn’t a story, then I’m Mickey Mouse (which would be impossible, as my voice is far too deep…).

    I’m cautiously optimistic, BR.
    Emphasis on the “cautious” part…

      JTR: I hear you loud and clear. I’m getting to be cautiously pessimistic…and they can prove me wrong. Mainstream apparently feels whistleblower hearings are worth ignoring. Surprise. But that won’t stop their rewrite campaign afterward — pending WH talking points of course. Funny, Obama can’t speak w/o his teleprompter and media can’t speak w/o their presidential talking points. Amazing.

    So Americans are denied their coverage — not just their pound of flesh.

    As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, the liberal limpdick media coverage, or LACK thereof, will tell us all we want to know about just what direction the hearings are going. Bad for the administration, or anyone associated with it, crickets. IF, however, the whistleblowers are looking bad, the same media asshats will be on this like flies on a fresh, corn-studded pile. Make bank on that. So far, crickets. Which will be GOOD for the TRUTH.

      Clyde, yea it could be good for the truth when we finally get it all. I just didn’t want it disected into spoon fed soundbites. But at this point take it any way you can get it. You could be right, MSM sure did a superb job of ignoring it, almost like they practiced. 🙂

    Good post Bull! Sorry, but still playing catch up. I semi agree with clyde’s assessment. IMO; the laimstream media can’t afford to go cricket on this issue, so no matter what anyone says the limpdick (that’s awesome clyde) will either come out in full force to protect Bastid or say…see..told ya’ so. The Traitor Party cannot let this situation backfire on them to ensure they hold onto the WH, so they’ll show up either way and do whatever to cover Barry’s ass. My simple, ignorant, KY, mean ass redneck opinion is this is….

    Bull,

    Super article. We would know nothing if we didn’t have Fox and the Internet about Benghazi since the no news outlets cover for the jackass kenyan. And no dam is going to break and Satan is not going to resign. It’s all a pipe dream.
    Like you said don’t use lolli pops, use bayonets. But the repukes are slow to come to real conclusions and I’m not sure they even want the real truth. They should all know that the CIC gives the stand down order so why question who gave the order? I’m jaded too about this. I just put up an article about my thoughts on the hearings. I don’t think anything is going to ever come of any of this testimony and that’s why I feel jaded.

      Pepp, its kind of a shame we have to be like this. I admit at the beginning I thought “now this could be something Obama might get concerned about, or feel threatened by”. Then it soon becoame clear he wasn’t worried. He acted like all the other times. His first objective was reelection anyway, so nothing else really mattered. But I hoped it might. He just went on stringing up his straw men and lies. It seemed like a perfect storm to some people. I didn’t hold out hope for long.

      Yea I,m not sure Repubs are capable, there is a competinency question there. I sort of expect it to go the way of Fast and Furious. But since he has no more elections, which seems to be all Repubs are thinking about, then how could it matter to them?
