Obama/Democrat loyalist will defend against Benghazi to the very end until they're drug out kicking and screaming. Would be hilarious if he got impeached over this. Would make two democrat presidents in a row to get impeached lol.
For this to happen the media would have to be reporting the truth. No worries liberals, the media will keep you in the dark.

Besides that was a long time ago. It happened at an inconvenient time, the same time Obama was campaigning and shouting Osama Bin Laden is dead and Al-quada is on the run, we live in a safer world.

Besides, as Hillary Clinton said "what difference does it make".

Haha, the regressive radical right is still clinging to this? Get over it, guys. President Obama is here until 2017, like it or not.

So someone broke into Republican headquarters and burglarized their campaign files? How does everything become a "Watergate" when everything is NOT a felony being covered up by executive privilege?

Here's the thing with Fox News, people mistake hard news for commentary or commentary/analyst opinion for hard news reporting on that channel.
Fox's hard news reporters do a decent job at reporting the facts and yes, as with every news organization some idealogical beliefs creep in (at Fox). It's the job of the viewer to separate the idealogical from facts.

Most other hard news organizations daily inject ideology into their reporting with a range of a medium to heavy hand (MSNBC for example) tailoring or coloring the news to be what you want to hear not just the facts which may not be exactly what you like.
The news is SUPPOSED to be contentious with the government NOT fawning and agreeable to everything they say or do, being complicit in deception of the public or promoting their agenda. That was their mission for existence and why freedom of the press was placed into the Constitution.

I watch a lot of different news channels for different view points, it's my observation that Fox puts both idealogical sides on to argue it out more often than not. The others rarely if ever do this. When was the last time you saw Ann Coulter on a major network other than Fox? Do you see people like Chris Matthews arguing with her? EVER?
I'm not saying I agree with Coulter, just that she represents one hard line side just as Matthews or the slew of others represent the other.
Think of it this way, even the dripping, oozing, liberal show "The View" had one conservative on it to at least give some balance. If they can why can't the regular news?

The other thing one needs to remember is when you're the big boy on the block like Fox is everyone else will do their level best to knock you down however they can.

To sum it all up, the majority of hard news organizations have decided to abdicate their mission and take sides instead of constantly looking at the government through a microscope and shining bright lights on everything they do.

No it was because of the video. Or that is what Obama and Hillary Clinton wanted us to believe.

Holder must do time. Give him the old John Mitchell suite in the federal lock-up.

What video? Clinton saying "What difference does it make?" or Carney talking about it being remote ancient history...
