Dereliction: 60 Minutes Ignores
Benghazi For Obama/Clinton Love-Fest

Big Journalism, by Larry O´Connor

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 1/28/2013 8:21:11 AM

Only a few days after CBS News´ intrepid investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson detailed a comprehensive list of questions the White House has refused to answer regarding the terrorist attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, the network had the opportunity to finally get some of those answers from Secretary of State Clinton and President Obama as they both sat with Steve Kroft for an exclusive interview on 60 Minutes. We imagine Ms. Attkisson might have thrown a handful of popcorn at her television as she watched the segment Sunday night when her colleague gently broached the Benghazi

Was that the down payment for hillary´s "testimony"? Wonder what the senators received for their equally disgraceful performances?

If any serious questions were asked, they will never see the light of day.

Note too that her heinous had the last couple of hundred thousand dollars of her campaign debt paid off the day before her testimony.

The payoff by Obama for her silence.

What annoys me even more than these drones that march in lockstep with the dictator-in-chief, is the likes of O´Reilly and Bernard Goldberg circling the wagons and saying "Kroft is a wonderful journalist, yada, yada....I´ve known him a very long time." Who the he!! cares Bernard how long you´ve "known" him. ?? I´m the stupid one for being sucked in for even watching Fox anymore. I´m slowly recovering my fox addiction.....just look at Hannity´s numbers dropping.....thats because of our house barely tuning in anymore. Karl Rove and Dick Morris scarred me after this last election.

Obama selected Kroft because of their mutual love of softball shooting. On Obama´s "Pull" command, a slobbering Kroft tosses a pre-approved softball in the air and Obama blows it away. Kroft honed his skills at CBS and 60 Minutes while Obama´s practiced by shooting skeet at Camp David. Obama is an avid skeet shooter, since skeet is the Kenyan word for manure.

Blow is another Kenyan word with two meanings: what one does with cocaine; and what one did in Chicago gay bathhouses.

Imagine what would happen if no conservative outlet anywhere made a single mention of what happened on 60 minutes!

When are we going to come to terms with the fact that 60 Minutes is nothing more than a liberal distraction?

There are so many more important things that we could be focusing on right now. Why does any reputable publication give 60 Minutes the time of day? I think the only reason that 60 Minutes continues to exist is that they know they can turn the heads of conservative media away from America´s real problems.

I don´t think the parents and family/friends of the four who died think or conclude it is over. How about the 20 who were saved by the actions of another? How about the fellow marines and and those in the know of what happened. How about the seals? Surely there are those of courage and knowledge, insight, power are going to stand up and pin these liars and abusers of the truth to light and expose and hold them responsible.

Interview?/ What interview? I thought it was a trailer for a Peter Seller´s movie.I would have scripted it a little differently. Kroft should have been on his knees although his nervous trembling was quite effective.
What must our international enemies think when they witness these two unmistakeable frauds? We can only guess but fear and respect for the old U.S. are not in their thoughts.

There would have been no interview if Kroft had not agreed to stick to the script. Also, I am certain that a private screening of the video was conducted to make sure that nothing embarrassing got out.

Like #5, I stopped watching 60 Minutes many years ago. This is disgraceful - I thought Steve Croft was better than this.

If it were a Republican President (say GW Bush) and his SOS (say Condi Rice), Steve would have done a brutal investigation and made them appear to be unconstitutional criminals. There wouldn´t have been any softball questions for GW, Condi, Cheney, or Rumsfeld.

Sixty Softballs.
November 2008 , Kroft interviewed Barry and Michelle just after the election.
Kroft asked really tough questions.
Like why Michelle had to " force "
Barry to do chores.
She told Kroft that she would force Barry
" to make his bed " ( his bed ? ) and wash dishes.
Barry told Kroft he actually found washing dishes
to be " soothing ".
Michelle reacted with head snapping incredulity.
When the the Obamas lived in Chicago , they had a long time personal chef, Sam Kass.
Another factoid the media decided to hide.
Kass is now a White House chef.
Apparently Kass didn´t clean up after
doing their cooking.
So, yesterday´s hem kissing interview by Kroft was not surprising.
Huckabee has been playing clips of Barry stuttering
in the interview and he sounds like Porky Pig.
That´s all folks !

60 Minutes is just a small fraction of the Media Complex whigh includes the network TV, liberal newspapers, Hollywood, etc. As an entity the Media Complex has a slogan (Seems to me at least): "TO PROTECT AND SERVE LIBERALS, DEMOCRATS, PROGRESSIVES AND ALL OTHERS WE AGREE WITH" This clearly does not include conservatives or the U.S. Constitution.

Clarence Thomas is right about race

San Diego, California -- Clarence Thomas has an abundance of two things that are often in short supply whenever Americans talk about race: courage and common sense. The only African-American on the Supreme Court displayed both this week in speaking to a small gathering of students and faculty at Palm Beach Atlantic University, a nondenominational Christian school in Florida. In a series of provocative and insightful comments about race that were first reported by Yahoo! News and confirmed by several people who attended the talk and heard the remarks firsthand, Thomas dropped a few bombshells.

When I first read, many months ago, that the notorious US climate scientist Michael Mann was suing the notorious right-wing ******* Mark Steyn for defamation, I admit that I felt a little piqued. Obviously a libel trial is not something any sane person would wish to court; and naturally I’m a massive fan of Steyn’s. Nevertheless, after all the work I’ve dedicated over the years to goading Mann, I found it a bit bloody annoying that Steyn — a relative latecomer to the climate change debate — should have been the one who ended up stealing all my courtroom glory.

Kansas House passes bill allowing refusal

Denying services to same-sex couples may soon become legal in Kansas. House Bill 2453 explicitly protects religious individuals, groups and businesses that refuse services to same-sex couples, particularly those looking to tie the knot. It passed the state´s Republican-dominated House on Wednesday with a vote of 72-49, and has gone to the Senate for a vote. Such a law may seem unnecessary in a state where same-sex marriage is banned, but some Kansas lawmakers think different. They want to prevent religious individuals and organizations from getting sued, or otherwise punished, for not providing goods or services to gay couples --

Republicans have a good chance to win control of the Senate this November. Democrats are on the defensive over Obamacare, the president is unpopular, and history suggests second-term mid-terms are nearly always unlucky for the White House. Given that, why is there so much division, backbiting, and bad blood among some Senate Republicans? Last seen during the government shutdown fiasco, the GOP malady returned this week with a debt ceiling mini-fiasco, and it threatens to revisit the Senate any number of times before Election Day. There is at least one common thread in the shutdown and debt ceiling incidents, and that

In the last decade, several mainstream American Protestant denominations have flirted with resolutions endorsing boycotts of companies doing business with Israel. Most of these efforts have been defeated, albeit narrowly, by strenuous efforts by Jewish groups determined to preserve good interfaith relations as well as by Christians who wanted no part of a movement dedicated to waging economic war on a democratic state. In most cases, these battles have involved a small cadre of left-wing activists involved in church leadership groups that had little support among ministers, and even less among rank-and-file church members. Thus, even the Presbyterian Church USA

The Afghan government´s decision to release 65 suspected Taliban detainees from Bagram prison despite repeated protests from the U.S. has raised fears that some of them may return to fight for the insurgent group. In the past, the Pentagon has said that detainees released from Guantanamo have been found to be involved in attacks against coalition forces in Afghanistan. Here is a list of prisoners who were released, then found to have returned to fight for the Taliban. Mullah Shazada, whose real name was Mohamed Yusif Yaqub, was repatriated to Afghanistan in 2003. He then went back to fight with the Taliban.

At least every week now, there is a new story supporting the narrative of an inevitable 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential bid. Indeed, the conventional wisdom is that it is an absolute certainty that she will run. If anyone is currently saying, flat out, that Hillary isn´t running, I haven´t come across them. Is the inevitability of her run really as certain as the conventional wisdom suggests, and further, is it unfolding in an optimal manner for the potential candidate? In all likelihood, Clinton will not make a final, "go-or-no-go" decision until early next year, after the dust has settled from

The school of literary criticism known as reception theory holds that a text should be studied in light of its effect on its contemporaries, that a reader should be aware of the “horizon of expectations” in which a text is produced. I was reminded of this the other day as I observed, in amusement, fascination, and occasional pity, the reaction of the so-called mainstream media to Alana Goodman’s lengthy and rock-solid report on “The Hillary Papers.” This trove of previously unexamined transcriptions of conversations between Hillary Clinton and her best friend Diane Blair had been collecting dust at the University

Speaking critically about the vote to raise the debt limit, Cruz–who insisted on a 60-vote threshold to end debate on the measure–said some lawmakers are “willing to mortgage our children’s future” because they “care so much about being praised by the Washington media” and don’t think voters are paying attention. “But sometimes, come November, the people remember,” the junior senator from Texas declared.
