Wednesday Morning Media Malaise

I won't call these today's headlines, as all of the top web portals are running stories about Oscar hopefuls and Oscar Pistorius - alas that they show so much more curiosity about a murder of a model by a celebrity than the death of the four Americans who were killed in Benghazi.

But that's a fair enough segue into what we'll call today's top stories (all clipped from Instapundit):

Five Months After Benghazi Murders: Killers Frolic Untouched There.

Gas Prices Soar 51 Cents in Just Two Months.

WaPo: Gas Prices Are On A Mysterious Climb.

Senate Democrats try to dodge responsibility for ObamaCare.

The President Is Raging Against a Budget Crisis He Created.

So why aren't these stories making the headlines?  Michael Goodwin, writing in the New York Post:

Too many news organizations are shockingly uncurious about Obama’s second- term agenda. They apparently don’t want to know, and certainly don’t think the public does, either.

one bother to ask how the president plans to balance the budget or pare the debt or question his claims that he knows how to create jobs. If he does, where are they?

Instead of trying to find out where the president was during the Benghazi slaughter — and whether he slept through a terrorist attack — they demand to know his golf score. Instead of digging for more information about defense nominee Chuck Hagel’s bias and potential conflicts, they want a holiday photo op that is more fitting for a celebrity.

Yeah, like I said yesterday - Media complains about access to Obama; but what's the point...when they are only going to befoul themselves anyway?

Obama fiddles while Americans burn.  And the media dances joyfully to his tune...
