    Par for the course.

    What do you expect? Since the liberal media is firmly under their control?

    No one knew where the president was for eight hours at night. I’ll give you a clue – he was having dinner, he went to the bathroom, he read some policy issues, he talked to his family, he went to bed for some badly needed sleep. Among many other things going on there was campaigning to do.

    Quit with the stupid obsessing and innuendo and get on with something productive.

    @zoidnight, there is NO liberal media. All media in the usa are firmly in the clutches of the far “right” megacorporations. This means all media, TV/radio, print, recorded music with subliminal “right” wing words, movies, all of it.

    With the exception of Fox News, most broadcast media don’t care about the slant of a story and report what they think will sell ads to their audience.

    That must be why members of the media have voted so overwhelmingly Democratic over the years. They are SO firmly in the clutches of the far right.

    Schultz and Maddow are commentators, just as O’Reilly and Limbaugh. I don’t look to any of them for straight news.

    The Fourth Estate

    Our government is suppose to work within a system of checks a balances. Added to that is the “press” (which Eddie Burke so long ago called the fourth estate) which is there to inform the public and keep the government honest.

    So is this what you hunger to know? News about a golf game with Woods? How does that game influence foreign policy? How does that game reflect on national security?

    And yet the fiasco that is Benghazi does both and you say “nothing to see here, let’s move along”.

    All right my liberal brothers, at what point do you draw the line? Is abdicating responsibility for the screw up in Libya and telling your reports to “do what you need to do” when the only person that legally has the authority to approve an incursion into Libya to mount a rescue (which could have been done) is the President not worth asking about?

    Remember that question way back when. Who do you want answering the phone at 3AM? Well, do you think just maybe Benghazi was such an incident that would qualify for the CEO of the Armed Forces of the USA to be contacted about?

    Oh that’s right, a motel break in to gather intelligence on a political rival is worthy of impeachment BUT allowing an Ambassador to die conducting God knows what covert operation with only 2 guards in a foreign country known to be hostile to America and then trying to cover it all up with a blatant lie concerning some half baked video that no one saw in Libya is nothing to be concerned about.

    Centuries ago Homer observed:

    “A councilor ought not to sleep the whole night through, a man to whom the populace is entrusted, and who has many responsibilities.”

    Here lies the path to destruction.

    And the families of the four men who were murdered because the Stat Dept. did not provide adequate security for an Ambassador in an unfriendly country.

    Obviously Obama was in Libya shooting at our embassy.

    Ooh, two liberal pundits…ooh…
    -
    Even mainstream Democrats in the US are moderate/right wing economically and moderately authoritarian. Republicans are hardline right wing/authoritarian. Check out politicalcompass.org.

    Bruce, IOW we are more concerned with “celebrity” than the boring aspects of foreign policy and national security? Of course we are, America has become a very shallow culture. I guess we just have a low threshold to boredom and we need glitz and glamor to keep us entertained.

    Obama would have no presidency if the media wasn’t in the tank for him.

    I found this article from The Christian Science Monitor (2/19/13) very interesting. They reference CBS as a source, amongst others.


    “Law-enforcement officials speaking with CBS News say evidence found in Mr. Lanza’s home – including a trove of violent video games and newspaper clippings about the 2011 Norway mass shooting – led them to deduce potential motives behind the Newtown, Conn., massacre that left 20 children and six adults dead at Sandy Hook late last year.

    But criminal-justice experts say research does not support a link between violent video games and mass shootings such as the one Lanza carried out Dec. 14."


    CNN had a similar news release. What I found interesting was after all the news outlets that released this information, they generally downplayed the role of violent video games as an influence. Interestingly, like the CSM article, they quote “criminal-justice experts” but never disclose who they are. Kind of like the “not authorized to speak” anonymous voice from the political nether world that speaks so often…
