By The Right Scoop


So how did the big network news organizations cover the Benghazi talking points scandal yesterday? See for yourselves and then vote below on who covered it the worst. In my opinion there is a clear loser:

NBC NEWS:

CBS NEWS:

ABC NEWS:

    Well I’m glad we finally have this cleared up. And we are very happy that the WH abd the Obama campaign had nothing what so ever to do with it.

    Note: Some sarcasm may be present. :-)

    • BS61

      I love sarcasm!

  • deTocqueville1

    CBS, a bunch of craven sycophants!

  • Orangeone

    Well they all to credit for the story didn’t they, ABC was the worst. The Just Bloggers broke this story!

  • tinlizzieowner

    No matter how the lame stream media covers (up) this. I don’t think the ‘Bojangles twins’, (Obama and Clinton) are going to be able to ‘tap dance’ their way around this one.
    ;-) ;-)

    • Orangeone

      tinlizzieowner Dang it, I used to really, really like that song :(  It’s kinda like how some radio jockey ruined Brown Eyed Girl because it was Lacey Peterson’s favorite song… :(

  • BlissTabitha

    OK news ‘investigators, time to do some investigating… WHO GAVE THE STAND DOWN ORDER – TWICE -LEAVING OUR MEN TO DIE A LONG, HORRIBLE DEATH?

    • Granada1492

      Answer: OBAMA

  • funkybarfly

    A single sentence written by Mark Steyn on this subject contains more facts than all three of these reports combined.
    However,to call CBS a disgrace would be insulting to those whom are merely disgraceful.Pathetic.

  • njmom

    Whoever in the Dem party Andrea spoke with is very concerned this is going to get bigger and it is, and will keep growing and growing until the truth is known. Should have told the truth in the beginning because now it will get ugly.

    • Orangeone

      njmom Notice how NBC changed the text of the email and removed the implication Congress would pick on them?

    • TinaG123

      They are definitely worried. When Obama’s fan club starts bringing up Bush, which they have, shows how worried they are. They have began making excuses for Obama’s lies.

  • JohnSmyth1

    Liberals who report “news” must first suspend all notions of reality so the story confirms to their beliefs.  I have great disdain for the Main Street Media and even more disdain for the low information voters who believe those lies as “Gospel”.  The MSM which is just like the old U.S.S.R.’s state controlled “Pravda” is creating revisionist history daily.

  • funkybarfly

    If the only good that comes out of this sorry saga is that Hillary(I’ve morphed into Olive Drudge from On the Buses) Clinton is humiliated so badly that her 2016 run for President – we all know she is going to – is derailed before it even starts then we can thank heaven for that not so small mercy.

    • doofuschmartz

      Agree to infinity!!!! Could only Like your post once, but gave you an exponential agreement, and a high five…

  • rbdeal

    This is so much BS! Damn the talking points, they are only giving smoke and mirrors. The “stand down” order is the story. Who gave it and why? Then hang the Bas—d High

    • TinaG123

      I think we might find out who gave the order. The networks are officially in competition to scoop each other on this story.

  • doofuschmartz

    Senator James Inhoffe finally used the “I” word…FWIW. Even if nothing happens, even if Obama skates, he will still have ANOTHER black (oops, is that racist, too bad!) mark to add to all of his other failures, namely: the longest period of sustained unemployment of 7.5% or greater since the depression, energy prices that have more than doubled since the day he took office, nationalized health care that will more than double our premiums, and more than likely cause layoffs and unemployment to go back up. He has failed to protect Americans overseas and more soldiers have died on his watch in four years, than on Bush’s watch for seven, in fact nearly double the number. He said he would cut the deficit in half…four years later, he’s given us a trillion dollar deficit every year since he’s been in office. Due to his failure to mount a rescue operation, a US Ambassador and three other Americans died while on assignment in Benghazi, Servicemen and women died while on duty at Ft Hood also all of them both foreign and on American soil killed by terrorists, and he refuses to use the word to describe the perpetrators of the murders so it won’t reflect badly on him. He gets our Border Agents murdered by a failed gun-running operation, but wants to confiscate the guns of law-abiding American citizens in violation of their constitutional rights. FAILURE…FAILURE…FAILURE, He should be impeached just for being one big O….but, we all knew that when THEY elected him…

    Why does everyone call these reports from government talking points anyway? These are reports. False reports – excused by virtue of calling the reports talking points. (oh, did I say virtue?) Words mean things and ‘talking points’ leads people away from the concept we should be expecting the truth when we get a report. Politically correct speech needs to be shown for what it is: A destructive force in our culture.

    • NYGino

      CLRoemke  Talking Points:  Smack me up side the head why dontcha?  Brought me right out of the fog and into HD TV.  That phrase always was a burr under my saddle and I couldn’t quite grasp why until now.  
      You are right.  There is definetely a lower expectation of truth as we gradually come to expect and accept a lower standard of what truth is.
      Truth can only be defined bu itself, not a committee.  A camel is a horse designed by a committee.

    CBS news gets the “We love to kiss Obama’s rear award”.

    • NJK

      GeneSpeicher 
      I think it’s more like, We love to kiss the murderers rear award.  He went to bed while four people were fighting for their lives.  These people should be the next victims of a terror attack.  Better yet, their children or loved ones.  They should suffer at the hands of the monster they created, Barack Hussein Obama, stealth Jihadist.

    Three Sad Sacks!  Three Sad Sacks!  See how they dither!  Listen to them blither!  They claim that they are all journalists!  In truth they are ThatGuy’s marionettes!  Just pull their strings and hear what they say!  Three Sad Sacks!

    Obama Denied and People Died!
    They gave their all for Uncle Sam
    But Barack Obama didn’t give a damn
    JJust two dead SEALs who carried the load
    But to Obama, they were “bumps in the road”

  • Patriotickev

    CBS ABC NBC There are the biggest liars, If there would have done there jobs back in sept. and oct. of 2012 this would not be the story today, But they had to cover Obama’s ass. CBS is trying to blame Republican. NBC they just want it to go away, and ABC is trying to take credit for breaking the story when it was Steven Hayes from the weekly Standard that reported the talking  points had been changed.

  • westernhunter

    Need to start talking about the “Stand Down Order”

  • DCGere

    I’m sorry but at this point all three SRM outlets get my vote for the worst reporting. It’s been 8 months since our Americans were murdered and they are now showing an interest?
    This pathetic admin covered up this story from the moment it was happening and spinned, twisted, and lied, all in the name of getting Obama re-elected. I have no use for the SRM anymore, nor our CIC. Hillary and him allowed our men to die, fight un-aided, and covered it up, including covering it up in current military operations. They are treasonous, IMO.

    • BS61

      Couldn’t agree more!  I refise to give credit to the MSM  who are suddenly ‘courageous’ enough to speak out now that the sh*t hit the fan!  They have not done their jobs for years.  I also tweeted Jay Carney today to say @presssec – Finally you have to do your job.

  • NJK

    I hope the next attack is right outside of their studios.  I wouldn’t help put out the fire.

    I’m intrigued by your poll question, Scoop…really. It’s like asking someone if they would rather have Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Intractable Migraine Headaches, or Inflamed hemorrhoids. Not that there would be much difference in the picking, but you have to decide which one is which and which one was the least offensive…uh…JMO…

    • BS61

      It took all my patience to actually listen!

  • RobertJohnson3

    It’s one thing for Obama and his people to say, “We didn’t know, we weren’t sure, what had happened”, as they are saying now. It’s another for ALL of them to come out and repeatedly, over and over, blame everything on an anti-Islam video protest. Those were all LIES. Lies. Lies. Lies. They KNEW the truth, knew the facts, but deliberately, consciously, carefully and publicly, over and over told the American people something they knew had no truth at all. Ever more despicably, rather than take responsibility, they used another lie, that of “Islamaphobia” as their attempted escape route from the truth, blaming a man who had nothing to do with it and groveling over and over to Islamic Supremecists, playing into their hands by talking about “Islamaphobia”, a nonsensical term invented by the Muslim Brotherhood as a way to deflect real investigation into their destructive plans. So Obama and his people repeatedly LIED, in DESPICABLE fashion, over and over again, right to our faces. After the DEATHS of four Americans that they were responsible for. THAT’s the real story.

  • StoryKeeper

    I find it amazing that no one notices that there were far more armed security who arrested an american citizen exercising his 1st amendment rights here in America for a misdemeanor parole violation. And that today, more than 8 months after 4 Americans were murdered in Benghazi, he is the only one arrested and brought to “Justice”

  • VtwooneKtwoNine

    Well, I got it right about CBS, but I’d like to vote 3 times for different networks.

  • louisiana_mom

    I wonder if the presidents of ABC and CBS both having siblings working in the regime had anything to do with the lack of coverage?  Naw…  Nothing to see here folks…  move along…

  • Granada1492

    “Congresswoman and former United States Ambassador to Luxembourg Ann Wagner (R-MO) appeared on The Dana Loesch show and placed the blame, of the stand down order to those that could have offered assistance to Americans under attack, on none other than Barack Obama.
    Loesch asked Wagner, “Because you have been an ambassador, you have been overseas with similar responsibilities and similar missions – who gives such an order to stand down? Where does that come from?”
    “The President of the United States,” the Missouri congresswoman affirmed.” –http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/05/congresswoman-benghazi-stand-down-order-came-from-obama/#ixzz2T5DqOXnV

    • bfunk

      Granada1492 Wow! That in of itself is explosive. I’ve been wondering who has the power to call a stand down on protecting an Ambassador. I knew it had to be Hill or Barry.
