I just watched quite a bit of the press conference on the Benghazi Report.
Trey Gowdy and associates all kept saying this isn’t about one person. Obviously, that meant Clinton. They kept saying that it seemed everyone wants it to be about that person but that was not their intent. Their intent was to follow the requests of those who told them to do this report and get answers.
CNN’s response BREAKING NEWS HEADLINE was “GOP led panel finds no wrongdoing by Clinton” I think those breaking headlines were prepared last night in the news room because that’s an absolute LIE and they know that if they watched the press conference. It’s such a lie it actually stunned me in its obvious misinterpretation.
They did NOT say she did no wrongdoing. The report does list WHAT HAPPENED and the implication from the faces of the Republicans speaking and some of what they said, is there WAS wrongdoing. Gowdy and his partners kept urging the press to READ THE REPORT and DRAW THEIR CONCLUSIONS. Nobody on that panel ever even suggested there was NO WRONGDOING BY ANYONE. They did discuss “the person who went on the Sunday morning talk shows and gave completely different information than what their report found to be true” (not mentioning Susan Rice by name). Yet, there was the CNN headline as incorrect and blatantly misleading as possible.
I kept laughing at the journalist’s questions and the CNN take-away from what they heard, knowing that the LEAST TINIEST HINT of a Republican having done anything wrong, had this been a Republican administration who was in charge at the time, and the headlines would have been “DEMOCRAT led panel finds REPUBLICANS guilty of wrongdoing”
Here’s the problem: When Gowdy and others say “it’s NOT about ONE PERSON” that does not exonerate that ONE PERSON (that elephant in the room whose name didn’t even get mentioned) from any wrongdoing. It means THE REPORT DOES NOT TO SINGLE OUT ONE PERSON, THE REPORT IS TO GET THE FACTS, AND WE HAVE.
“Read the report” does NOT mean “Mrs. Clinton or this administration did all they could to save these four Americans” Trust me, it doesn’t. Yet……..the liberal media’s outraged at the gall of ANYBODY having put together this report and is intent on telling the country MRS CLINTON DID NO WRONGDOING.
Even I, someone who understands the media today and thinks we’re living in a Third World country, and in horrific risk of losing what used to be an informed public, because of their lack of honesty, found THIS astonishing.
I hope some of you saw some of this and can chime in.
