It's True, And It's News, But Who Will Report It?

Pat Caddell, a Democratic pollster, points out the media's complicity in the Obama administration's cover-up of the Benghazi massacre:

“First of all, we’ve had 9 days of lies…If a president of either party…had had a terrorist incident and gotten on an airplane [after remarks] and flown off to a fundraiser in Las Vegas, they would have been crucified…it should have been, should have been, the equivalent, for Barack Obama, of George Bush’s “flying over Katrina” moment. But nothing was said at all. Nothing will be said. 

[...] It is [unacceptable] to specifically decide that you will not tell the American people information they have a right to know. [The MSM] has made themselves the enemy of the American people. It is a threat to the very future of the country; we’ve crossed a new and frightening line on the slippery slope, and it needs to be talked about.

It will be.  But not yet.

After the election, should Obama win, the media - like comic book/cartoon super-villains - will feel the need to describe exactly how they committed their crimes against the American people, for no other reason than to show the world how smart they are and how dumb we are.

And when they are banished to the outer fringes of our culture ( a print version of  "Wheel of Fortune", perhaps - lasting forever for the sake of a few dinosaurs), well - they won't really mind that either. After all, they will have won.

Death is nothing compared to vindication....

Below is a video of Cadell's disturbing remarks, with a transcript at the link:

I think we’re at the most dangerous time in our political history in terms of the balance of power in the role that the media plays in whether or not we maintain a free democracy or not...

We designed a constitutional system with many checks and balances. The one that had no checks and balances was the press, and that was done under an implicit understanding that, somehow, the press would protect the people from the government and the power by telling—somehow allowing—people to have the truth. That is being abrogated as we speak, and has been for some time. It is now creating—that is the danger that I spoke to.
