One Local Reporter Succeeds Where the Mainstream Media Fails

On Friday, President Obama was interviewed by Kyle Clark from Denver Channel 9 News, who asked about the September 11th terrorist attacks in Benghazi that resulted in the murder of four Americans, and has been followed by what appears to be an outright cover-up by the Obama administration.

With his very first question, Clark asked, "Were the Americans under attack at the consulate in Benghazi, Libya denied requests for help during that attack, and is it fair to tell Americans that what happened is under investigation and we'll all find out after the election?"

Obama avoided answering, instead misdirecting, as he said: "The election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us wanting to find out exactly what happened."

Clark next asked a very direct question about yet another failed Obama crony capitalism stimulus connections. When Clark asked the question, Obama visibly and audibly scoffed, and then went on to give a lengthy lecture about how this was not money connected to politics, and how it is so very important that we discover clean technologies.

And while I agree with the need to develop renewable sources of energy, payola to friends of politicians that come of the expense of our tax dollars is something that this man promised would not happen under his watch.

The final question of the interview has to do with Obama's use of the term "bullshitter" to describe Mitt Romney.

Here is the interview:

Regarding what this election is about, I believe President Obama couldn't be more incorrect. It is my opinion, as a constantly learning student of, and firm believer in our Constitution, that the first and most important function of our federal government is the protection of all Americans. That is the essence of the Preamble, which has nothing to do with "free" health care, by the way.

If these Americans were denied the support they needed, and the order came from President Obama or anyone in his administration, American voters deserve to know that before we cast our ballots.

And from the humble perspective of this American, this single incident is substantial and provocative enough a situation that is casts a huge shadow of question on the process of early voting. While not absolute, there exists at least a possibility that some who have already cast their ballots might have voted differently, given these circumstances.

Well that is, of course, if they only knew about it. Where the... where is the 'mainstream' media, anyway?

Remember when 30 or more 'journalists' descended on Wasilla, Alaska to 'investigate' Sarah Palin's emails, in the middle of 2011, when they meant absolutely nothing to anyone?

Where is the same kind of 'investigative' "journalism" regarding the obvious misdirection and cover-up surrounding the September 11th attacks in Benghazi, Libya that took the lives of four brave Americans?

Do a Google search for "sarah palin emails released" and then do a Google search for "benghazi cover up."

The contrast is stunning. Every major "news" outlet's website appears at the top of the search regarding a bunch of emails.

Yet when four Americans are dead, and information is beginning to surface that shows those brave souls were asking for and were denied help?

Silence. Dare I say... deadly silence.

Our media, most specifically the national "mainstream" media, is failing us because of their partisan interests. If you didn't believe it before, I don't know how you can't see it now.

Here is an excellent summary of the bias in today's Sunday Show lineup, specifically regarding Benghazi.
