Remember that CBS "60 Minutes" report on Benghazi? The one in which a guy made some claims that were picked up by Fox "news" and other right-wing screamers like money in the street, touted and praised to and from the heavens? Because Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi? The one after which it was discovered the star of the show was a liar? I wrote about that. And, in case you've forgotten, here's a timeline of the sorry episode, ending with the apology and retraction (after first sticking to their "liberal media" guns).
So, after beating and bleating the story of stories, convincing their credulous followers of that which they'd already been made to believe, easy as pie: that Obama lied about Benghazi Benghazi Benghazi and that it was the worst thing to happen to America since slavery (or was that affordable care?) you can be sure they've told their viewers and listeners about the retraction, right? Because they report, so you can decide.
Yeah. Right. Sure they have.
Lindsey Graham, who hyped it like a cure for gay, seems to have his mouth too full of something, too, to talk.
I've asked it a million times: how much of this would it take for their sheeplike viewers to become convinced they're been played for suckers? At what point might they conclude there are better, more honest news sources out there, and that they've been choosing lies over truth? When might they even go so far as to ask themselves why?
I got your answer, right here.
