A hoax? Really? We can understand these Media Matters buffoons defending serial liar Hillary Clinton, but calling what happened in Benghazi a hoax? Please.
The book offers a sweeping criticism of a number of Republicans, including last year’s GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, as well as members of the media. That includes but is not limited to several Fox News anchors, whom Brock describes as “hoaxters” interested in tarnishing Obama and Clinton, and, by extension, former United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice. Her Sunday show appearances defending the administration shortly after the attacks helped sink her hopes of becoming Secretary of State.
Fox, a frequent focus of Media Matters’ work, had focused extensively on the attacks and aired pieces that Brock’s book pushes back on.
“People have missed the fact that Benghazi was not only a tragedy, but it was a night of valor,” said Brock. The book – the first such endeavor for Media Matters, which is self-publishing it – was conceived of in the spring, as the congressional hearings on Benghazi were taking place, he said.
In the months since, the issue has faded from the spotlight, in part because of the government shutdown. But Brock predicted it will come up again, especially as Clinton is seen through a more political lens as she makes a decision about her future.
No, Benghazi hasn’t faded because of the shutdown, you idiot. Benghaze preceded the shutdown by 55 weeks. Where was the coverage in that time? The media, except for Fox, has largely ignored it from day one because it makes Clinton and Obama look negligent. If there was no shutdown, does this mean the media would have pursued Benghazi? C’mon.
