CBS Busts Obama--and Itself
--in Benghazi Cover-Up

Breitbart's Big Journalism, by Joel B. Pollack

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 10/25/2012 7:21:44 AM

CBS News has released a clip of an interview by Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes on Sep. 12 with President Barack Obama that indicates Obama knew the assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya was a premeditated terror attack--and suggests the White House later deceived the public by blaming protests against an anti-Islam video. CBS chose not to air the clip for over a month--but did air Obama’s attack on Romney that same night.Obama told Kroft that the attack in Benghazi was different from the violent protest at the U.S. embassy in Cairo: "You're right that this is not a situation that was

I got the 404 message too. Here's a better link (hopefully), tiny version: http://tinyurl.com/9rpa4dt

But I'd venture that they didn't recognize what they had. Because if they did, and they deliberately left it on the cutting room floor - for ''online only'' purposes - then they made themselves complicit in the cover-up that ensued.

My question to them at this point is: Did they decide this on their own? Or did Azzholerod intervene after the interview and lean on them to pull that clip out of the broadcast? If so, what threats did he use to accomplish that? (Or did he have to threaten, at all?)

SeeBS smells a loser, and they're distancing themselves. After all, at some point, this interview IN ITS ENTIRETY may be subpoenaed.

The online Special Report with Brett Baer last night was extremely interesting.

It's disturbing that CBS INTENTIONALY left that part out of the interview OUT. CBS has lost any teanie tiny bit of credibility that they had.

As Charles Krautheimer had said, "journalistic malpractice"

Second post because I hit submit by error the first time around.

After the election and we have a new POTUS we are going to have nonstop 'fodder" to prove how complicit all these MSM critters have been to prop up the punk from Chicago.

CBS destroyed Sarah Palin because she did not answer Katie's question about what she reads to their satisfaction. They destroyed Dan Quaylle because he misspelled a word, yet they cover up the most horrendous terrorists attacks against America in order to protect Obama and Hillary. There ought to be a law. Blood is on all their hands.

I cannot agree with an above post which suggests that CBS didn't know what they had and therefore left it on the cutting room floor. Remember .... this is the same CBS exposed by Bernie Goldberg' book, BIAS .... the same CBS which applauded and then attempted to cover up for Dan Rather.

They KNEW. So did the other collaborating propagandists of Old Media, who have been carefully trained to bend over and obey their Master in the White House and his handlers.
.... CBS and the others have jumped into the sacrificial fire, and I can't imagine why ANYone would ever believe ANYthing they profess in the future.

IMO this is more serious than a simple cover-up. Catherine Herridge's report yesterday describes something akin to Jimmah Carter's helicopters in the sand. It's 1980 all over again.

Those sickening interviews Steve Krock have conducted with Obama on CBS/sixty minutes, remind of neigborhood elderly people having kids over for milk and cookies. Krock: "is it tough getting all that fan mail-where do you put it?" ha ha ha ha ha.

Lara Logan should go work for a network that doesn't have a reputation, worse than that of the National Enquirer. She's too good for them. Thanks for warning this administration they are asleep at the wheel/terrorism.

I said in 2008 that a small majority of American voters had elected a communist for President. Everything that has happened since just reinforces that. If you still can't bear to think that the MSM, Hollywood and 0bama administration are communists, read Whittaker Chambers book Witness - then you'll know what stakes we're playing for.

Wow, #13, I never thought of that before! No way would they have merely told the facts as they were known if 9/11 had happened on their watch. We would have been treated to a string of lies and cover-ups and probably arrests of hapless white men who own guns.

What this attack is called is a red herring: All y'all, including the media, are far too focused on what Obama called the attack instead of on the FACT that America was attacked and this Administration did nothing to save American lives in Bengazi.

Could this be deliberate? Get everyone sidetracked on what it was called and when, instead of THAT we attacked and to this day are doing nothing about it.

The better question is why have we done nothing about this attack? Could it be because of Obama and the Adminstration having Muslim sympathies? Could it be because American servicemen and other American can be sacrificed on the altar of liberalism until and, likely, after this election?

The emphasis is skewed.

CBS's problem is what to do with one of the best old-school reporters to come along in many, many years: Sharyl Attkisson. Her honesty and integrity won't be a party to a cover-up by her bosses. Hat tip to Mara Liasson for calling out CBS.

The national "news" organizations have crossed the line that separates misfeasance from malfeasance, IMO.

They think the 1st amendment gives them carte blanche to report or distort as they please, but I disagree.

They have clearly chosen sides in the national political debate and are ACTIVELY attempting to influence the outcome of elections. This has been the case for decades, but they have gotten sloppy and have abandoned even the pretense of objectivity.

Elections effect us all, for those in office have too much power to pass laws that ultimately affect our financial and legal well being. Since the "news" organizations are implicitly or explicitly trying to foist their choices upon the public through active disinformation campaigns, they are now an official cabal and guilty of conspiracy, IMO.

I truly believe RICO applies in this situation.

Good point, 13, about Attkisson. Recall when Attkissson got under the administration skin over F & F, a WH hack screamed profanity at her. When the matter was publicized, an obama agent accused Attkisson of whining.

To me, this article tells the whole story. After the interview they call CBS and tell them not to air that admission and CBS dutifully complies, of course. In their hubris, the admisnistration believed it could maipulate the press, even on a story of this magnitude. For the most part, the press is complying, but the coverup is so blatant that it's making that diffcult.

Obama and his media cabal conflated the Egypt and Benghazi attacks adopting their narrative about Muslim outrage at a video because they were ready to excuse the muslim habit of killing others who don't agree with them and because they were quite ready to sacrifice constitutional guarantees of freedom of speech to be replaced by Sharia law with penalties against any speech against Islam true or not. This is the attitude of the one more sympathetic to Islam than to America!

Since this happened on 60 minutes, I'm not the least surprised. They have been doing this for decades. They probably have a barn full of film clips that never reached the broadcast room. It's the old "give us your film and tell up what you want to portray." The cutters and splicers of film make a tea party look like an axe murder if they want to.

Like other posters, 60 minutes is not allowed on my TV.

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that

Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

With a Speech, Cardinal

VATICAN CITY—It took Jorge Mario Bergoglio four minutes to convince fellow cardinals he was their leader. Speaking in the Paul VI grand hall of the Vatican, the Argentine cardinal warned the Catholic Church against focusing too much on matters close to home—advice that came against the backdrop of a papacy that had been consumed by infighting among Vatican officials, a dwindling flock in Europe and secular trends in the West. The 76-year-old Father Jorge, as he is known back home, said Roman Catholicism needed to shift its focus outward, to the world beyond Rome—rather than being "self-referential," he said.

Obama in Jerusalem
New York Sun, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Oblio- 3/16/2013 7:43:15 AM     Post Reply
When President Obama gets to Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication of what country he thinks he’s in. Normally this is clear when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign country. He’s in whatever country the capital is capital of. But Mr. Obama has been refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that, but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel.

Approaching his first presidential trip to Israel, President Obama offered a fresh and foolish — if not feckless — assessment of the Iranian nuclear threat. "Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually deliver a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” the President told an Israeli television interviewer, in the process cutting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off at the knees and giving the mullahs breathing room to keep enriching uranium.

An unfortunate story on CBS New York Thursday carried this headline: "Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read." It´s a shocker, but it´s also untrue.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K
