‘TMZ should investigate Benghazi’: MSM obsesses over NFL Rice ‘cover-up’ – sickening priorities

Talk about misplaced priorities.

The furor that the mainstream media is hypocritically unleashing over domestic violence in the Baltimore Ravens Ray Rice case is a hurricane compared to the eerie calm that’s greeted the bona fide scandals of the Obama administration for the past six years.

The Rice “scandal” was broken by the gossip website TMZ. Maybe the major networks and New York Times-led print media might want to take a few pointers on how real news should be covered.

Fortunately, in the era of social media, when networks and major newspapers aren’t the sole gatekeepers of what qualifies as “news,” the domestic travails of one couple who happens to be affiliated with America’s most popular sport can’t quite obliterate what is genuinely a national concern.

Twitter users have been even more eloquent than usual in using the Rice-Benghazi comparison to point out just how badly the American media has disgraced itself in the Obama era.

Here’s a sampling of some of the best.

That might ruin the media’s relationship with the all-powerful administration, though.  

 

 

 

These are some serious questions.

How is it that one guy beating up the woman who eventually became his wife — surely she’s the one who has the final decisions on thing like this — takes on more importance to the self-important scribes who still make a pretense of journalism in this country?

Four Americans died at the hands of savages — including an ambassador — and this administration did nothing.

Even worse, the American media not only allowed it, but abetted it. Don’t forget that novella-length whitewash in the New York Times in December that basically tried to prove the administration’s “blame-the-video” story long after even the White House had abandoned it.

 

Maybe after November,  after Republicans break the stranglehold Harry Reid and his liberal-Democrat-progressive thugocracy have put on constitutional government through their corruption in the Senate, we’ll actually get some answers.  

Actually, they just want to protect their creation — the man they thought would be king.
