It was one of the tastiest servings of schadenfreude I’ve sampled in a long time. Watching Carney lie is boring. Watching him lie while he knows everyone watching knows he’s lying is a delight.
What we’ve known from the beginning–and the folks at ABC News are just starting to figure out–is that the White House knew within 24 hours--48 max–that the Benghazi consulate was destroyed by a pre-planned, organized attack on the anniversary of 9/11 by Al Qaeda. Which means every time Hillary Clinton said “video” at Chris Stevens funeral or President Obama said it at the UN or Susan Rice said it on TV–they were lying.
They were lying because the CIA, the State Department and the Libyan government has all told them the truth within a day of the attack.
Bottom line, Carney is moving into Bagdad Bob territory every time he opens his mouth about Benghazi.
Of course, the Obama cultists “don’t care” about the President and his staff lying repeatedly to the American people, as long as it is their “lightbringer” doing the lying.
Why is it so important for the liberals to push out the only reporter who covered Benghazi?
“Ghettoization.” If the “neutral media” — actually liberal as hell — can present a unified party line on stories, always supporting one another and never showing a crack in the wall, they can sneer at stories they don’t like by saying “Only Fox claims that.”
This becomes unhelpful to the liberals for the same reason it’s helpful to conservatives. Conservatives always say “Wow, now it’s on CBS!” We call that vindication — that it’s gotten out of the ghetto to the liberal media. That even the liberal media was forced to cover that.

Here is collection of interesting items I put in my “blog about” file but didn’t get to.
Let’s lead off with some Blue on Blue media attacks. George Soros’ bought and paid for thugs at Media Matters attacked the uber-liberal reporters at NPR for committing an act of Journalism. Chana Joffe-Walt did a story on that covered the fraud and corruption in the federal disability program on Chicago’s Public Radio This American Life and National Public Radio’s (NPR) All Things Considered. Ms. Joffe-Walt apparently forgot about the memo that said that all news stories must praise our Dear Leader and blame Republicans.
Jon Stewart, a fairly reliable talking head for the extreme far hard left agenda, ripped in our Dear Leader for basic incompetence on his handling of the obscenely long backlog at the Veterans Administration. Gee, it’s almost as if Obama sees US military veterans as his enemy and is trying to kill them off.
Megan McCardle points out an annoying fact that leftists don’t like: The Aaron Sorkin Model of Political Discourse Doesn’t Actually Work
Democrat congressman Stephen Lynch on Benghazi Talking Points: ‘It Was Scrubbed … It Was False Information. There’s No Excuse For That.’ Yup, the Obama regime flat out lied the American people for the purpose of ”damage control” prior to the election. This really does call for hearings.
Chicago Law Prof on Obama: “The Professors Hated Him because he was Lazy, Unqualified & Never Attended any of the Faculty Meetings” Hmmm…doesn’t sound like his work habits changed much.
Terrorists set off two explosives at the Boston Marathon six days ago, on April 15, 2012, killing three people and wounding hundreds. We know that it was the work of two brothers, immigrants from Chechnya, both Muslims, with ties to radical Islam. Based on other Terrorist attacks, including the one at Fort Hood, this is not much of a surprise.
The far left extremists in the MSM/DNC had other hopes. On my ride home on Monday, April 15, I was listening to WBUR (“Boston’s NPR News Station”), and they had on a so-called “terrorism expert” from Harvard University saying that it was most likely the work of domestic “right-wing” terrorists. This was not based on any factual track record. It was their political ideology driving that particular fantasy. NPR continued to double down on their pet theory.
Yup. You heard that correctly. An NPR “analyst” claiming that Hitler’s birthday is a “motivator” for those with a political view point to the right of center. Proving once again that history is not a strong point of the left. He was the leader of the German “National Socialist Workers Party”, with gives him more in common with the late Hugo Chavez, and the staff of NPR, than any registered Republican.
To be fair, NPR was not the only “news outlet” making these kind of baseless speculations. There was usual list of suspects joining in on their bashing of their political enemies while going out of their way to avoid the possibility of this terrorist act being the work of Islam extremists. You had James Kitfield of the National Journal, CNN, and of course, MSNBC. Ed Driscoll has a partial list of examples of this faux journalism that is so typical of the left.
Perhaps the best example of this moonbat behavior is David Sirota, who wrote an article in Salon entitled, ““Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American.” Look it up if you want, I’m not giving the a link. Mr. Driscoll points out that this is pretty consistent behavior for the left. You have easily documented cases going back almost a Century.
…for low information voters. Yup, that would be the far left extremists at the so-called “news network” MSNBC.
Let’s review the facts of the matter, Pew Research studies have shown that MSNBC content is only 15% actual news.
Compare that to the Emmanuel Goldstein of every “open minded” so-called “progressive”, Fox News, which is much more “Fair and Balanced” with a commentary/News ratio of 55%/45%. That’s right, dear readers, you get three times more actual news at Fox News than you do at MSNBC.
Now let us take a look at some of the mis-information MSNBC is passing on to it’s core audience of low information voters. Hot Hair has a couple of videos that illustrate how MSNBC carefully edits the information they pass to their viewers in order to advance their left wing extremist political agenda. In the first video, the MSNBC talking heads go to great length to imply that Senator Cruz lacks a basic understanding of the Heller case, as well as a basic understanding of the Constitution itself. In order to promote their politically motivated commentary, they have to ignore what Senator Cruz said in the second video, which is from the same hearing they are attacking him over! In the second clip, Senator Cruz notes that he argued the Heller case before the Supreme Court (which he won), and shreds the case the MSNBC talking heads tried to make. Just to add insult to injury, one of the MSNBC talking heads, who is supposed to be their token conservative, accuses the NRA of playing games with language for using the correct term “semi-automatic” rifle instead of the nonsense term “Assault Weapon.” Anyone who has bother to do the basic research on the subject would know that the term “Assault Weapon” was coined by victim disarmament activist Josh Sugarman. He deliberately wanted to confuse people by implying that semi-automatic weapons were fully automatic weapons that have been under strict federal regulation since 1936.
Another example is Rachel Maddow, supposedly the “smart” one at MSNBC attacking House Minority Leader Boehner for, correctly, stating that US Constitution has a preamble. Here is a video of Maddow claiming that the US Constitution doesn’t have a preamble.
My theory is that Maddow really is aware that the Constitution has a preamble, but is smart enough to know that most of her core audience aren’t the type to actually read the US Constitution. Even the ever so small minority of those viewers who are aware that she made a mistake, wouldn’t admit it, since it goes against their political agenda. For the left, their political agenda always trumps the truth.
“Haven’t you noticed this? The American left is always waxing hysterical about right-wing violence and the true violence always comes from the American left. The American news media cry out in horror at peaceful Tea Party demonstrations and look the other way when Occupy Wall Streeters commit vandalism, rape, and even murder. The media try to pin any political assassination attempt on conservatives; yet almost all American political assassinations are committed by the left… . Leftism requires this illegitimate use of force — this use of violence — because free individuals simply will not do what leftists, in their wisdom, have decided is right and good.”

The tv talking heads are all aflutter about Obama “cutting his vacation short” to “address the fiscal cliff”.
Give me a break. They had 2 years to deal with this. They might as well say “Obama heroically crams for test”.
“Americans. It took us 40 years to get rid of Piers Morgan. Pleasse don’t send him back.”
“This week, CBS News became the first news organization besides Fox to ask President Obama ‘Who changed the Benghazi talking points?’ See, this is very dangerous to the White House if journalists should suddenly start asking real questions.”

Former democrat party pollster and analyst Pat Caddell brings us today’s Quote of the Day:
“I am appalled right now. This White House, this president, this vice president, the secretary of state, all of them are willing apparently to dishonor themselves and this country for the cheap prospect of getting reelected, willing to cover up and lie, and the worst thing is, the very people who are supposed to protect the American people and the truth, the leading mainstream media, they have become a threat, a fundamental threat to American democracy and the enemies of the American people.”
