I agree with Tammy Bruce: If you are just following the mainstream media, you could not be blamed for thinking that we would have been better served in Benghazi if we sent Charles Ramsey.
For those middle-class Chick-fil-A fans who have been following Professor Jacobson’s streaming of the hearings covering the events surrounding the terror attack on our Libyan embassy, Ramsey just became a national hero when he helped rescue three missing women who were held hostage for a decade in Ohio.
However, if you were only getting your information via Google, this is The News!
CNN has a bit more variety, also featuring the Jodi Arias trail verdict:
The Washington Post, whose reporters lead the way in bringing down the Nixon Administration over stolen tapes, seems less than enthusiastic in covering the hearings about attacks and a failed rescue that left 4 Americans dead. The placement with photo clearly indicates what stories they want their readers to see:
The Washington Post staff may want to reflect that their primary responsibility under the US Constitution is to be a watch-dog on our government officials and political representatives. If they decided to actually report the news, instead of insult the news consumers, perhaps the paper’s profits would not be plunging by 85%.
Comparing the coverage of the Ohio and Benghazi rescues, it is sad to see the depths to which American journalism has sunk.
