For Fox News, a Tired Old Hoax Trumps Obama Outperforming Reagan

Chance_Benghazi

So Fox News has come back in a frenzy to their old Benghazi hoax, even though House Republicans have admitted Obama did nothing wrong. So absurd has their bubble reality become, you begin to wonder if these are the sort of people who would admit the sun had set if it was dark.

Because airing already debunked claims on Thursday’s Special Report, and repeating them on Friday with their 13 Hours at Benghazi: The Inside Story was not enough, Mitt Romeny was trotted out on Fox News Sunday to repeat the “stand down” routine we’ve all become so fond of over the past months. Even Romney, who loves himself some Romney, was willing to sling mud at Obama before talking about what a great president he would have been.

Yes, this is “Which Mitt,” the guy who holds every position on everything, depending upon what he thinks you might want to hear. Since Fox News wants to hear tired old, oft-debunked Benghazi lies, that is what Which Mitt gave them.

The economy is improving. Did you hear? We already know that the economy does better under Democratic presidents. The mainstream media ignored this, let alone the Fox echo chamber.

But not only has the media ignored an improving economy but they’ve ignored Republicans doing their level best to destroy the economy. And now Forbes just reported Saturday that “It’s Official: President Obama Is the Best Economic President In Modern Times.”

Best. In. Modern. Times.

BENGHAZI!!!!!

If they don’t shout loud enough, their little bubble will burst, and they can’t have that.

And so it is the mantra they repeat while blocking out any hint of good news. Obama could dismantle ISIS on Saturday and Sunday we’d hear, BENGHAZI!

It becomes increasingly difficult to understand how they can do this without rolling on the floor laughing. I mean, how do they keep straight faces? Are they pumping drugs into these people while on camera? Are they people at all, and not some clever CGI animations?

What is stunning is that other networks are not airing specials on Fox News’ Benghazi obsession. The real scandal here is that Fox News created a lie out of whole cloth and has turned it into a self-sustaining industry.

Why is THIS not news?

Isn’t that the least bit scandalous?

I suppose other networks might if they weren’t as deeply mired in Republican corporate politics as Fox News. I mean, look, even MSNBC, the network Fox decries on a regular basis for being communist lapdogs, said Rachel Maddow is too partisan, but that Morning Joe is not.

You seriously think they’re going to point fingers at Fox News? And CNN, really? CNN, which regularly avoids reporting things that might hurt the Republican narrative? MSNBC and CNN, which prefer endless John McCain narcissism to real news?

Yeah. About that…

Liberal media elite.

Liberals should be so lucky to have a slice of mainstream media pie.

Ain’t happening.

Remember, it was Obama, while George W. Bush was president, who invaded Iraq and Afghanistan and created the conditions for ISIL!

Sunnis and Shiites? Obama the Muslim was there at Mohammed’s death to manipulate the schism.

Look, if the mainstream media isn’t going to cry foul over this lie it isn’t going to defend Obama on Benghazi. There’s just too much corporate money to be made selling Faux News.

The reason for all this is clear.

If Obama were Solomon, he would still be black. If he were Moses, and could lead Americans to the promised land, no Republican would follow.

That tells you where a strong economy gets you in the mainstream media.

It gets you to Benghazi.

Go directly to Benghazi. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200.

  1. This is just another blatant example of liberal bias in action. Everyone knows Forbes is just another commie ragazine controlled by George Soros, the Labor Unions and of course Fidel Castro.

    ;-)

  2. We are going to have a difficult time moving this country forward until we do something about the ability of those in the media to spread outright lies on air with impunity.

    If we don’t push out legislators to at least bring back the Fairness Doctrine, we will be at the mercy of the corporations who use the media to spread their propaganda. This is not the America I was raised in. It is turning into the land of the liars, and the land of the monied interests.

  3. Well they do say it doesn’t matter how you vote as long as you vote. :-D

    Uh-oh, I almost forgot…
    BENGHAZI!!!!

  4. Excellent article! And I am so happy that we never got to see who the real Mittens was.

    This is why for the last 2 years or so I have not watched any TV news. Its a complete waste of time. Fox struggles to out do itself with nonsense, CNN and MSNBC, if you watch them in the morning you have seen the entire days worth of news. None of them want you to know we are at war, that there is a world outside of New Yawk. Bend you head and listen to only what they tell you

    I am just over it. I only have 20 or so years left, Im not spending it on them

  5. You have all of these good news about Obama and his presidency being the best in economics in modern times, even out performing Reagan of all people. Yet, no one mentions it. Kind of sad when anything good is trumped by Fox News constantly violating the dead horse that is Benghazi.

    I have an idea for the networks: How about covering the President and whatever good news that comes from it? Stop giving us this force fed bull dung about a false story and focus on the fact that, yes, Democrats in charge is better for America.

  6. The good economic news is being obscured, because the oligarchs who own the majority stock positions of these media outlets, don’t want any justifications for raising wages, broadcast in the news. It’s hard to justify keeping people in poverty, when all the billionaire boats are riding the waves of financial success.

    On a good note, one of those low-wage oligarchs died today. The founder of Chic-fil-A finally gave up the ghost – but not his fortune. And he gave but a pittance of his fortune to charity his whole life. Jesus will not be pleased with his membership application for Heavenly Acres.

  7. My assessment has it that he’s finding things to be a bit hotter than he thought it would be. I don’t know how it could be any different for those who have shown themselves to be through their actions arrogant, greedy, self-serving, intolerant religious hypocrites.

  8. I don’t think they don’t have a reading comprehension problem, djchefron. I think they have a bias and denial of reality problem which manifests itself in the form of ODS. Any positive news about Pres. Obama is immediately dismissed by them. Just the mention of his name or seeing his name in print elicits a visceral, and negative, reaction from his detractors. They’ve been well-groomed by RW media, politicians, pundits, and blog owners to hate this president, even if something he does benefits them.

  9. Unca Joe….just one small correction….Fidel Castro is gone from the scene…it is Raoul Castro now. Just thought you would want that cleared up. After all, one doesn’t want to muddy things up more than they already are.

  10. So, facts aren’t facts unless they were made up by Fox news?

    I saw more absolute BS on Benghazi and began responded with how silent the right wing was when Reagan ignored clear warnings and refused to allow the Marines to beef up security in Beirut in 1983, which resulted in the deaths of 299 Marines. Bush ignored numerous, clear warnings and let terrorist attack the U.S. on 11 September 2001 and if you criticized him you were “un-American” and should stand with the president after such an attack. He had at least 11 embassy bombings resulting in 59 American deaths. There were a total of 4 hearing and investigations into the all 11 together. Now, we have one attack under Obama and it’s “THE HELL WITH WHO PERPETRATED IT !!!!!!! THIS IS ALL OBAMA’S FAULT AND WE NED TO GO AFTER HIM!”.
    This got me to thinking. Imagine that Obama was warned multiple times that there was a terrorist organization preparing a major attack on the U.S., probably using airliners as bombs and Obama…

  12. I hope I missed the sarcasm, but some of those people are so amazing in what they dream up when they just don’t want the truth.
