Mainstream ignoring Libya cover-up

A spokesman for a media watchdog group says NBC and ABC are both failing to give full and honest coverage on the details surrounding the September 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya.

Graham, Tim (MRC)Tim Graham, director of media analysis for the Media Research Center (MRC), says unlike CBS's Jan Crawford, neither network has asked the hard questions about Libya.

"I think they're fully aware that the administration misled the American people knowingly about what they knew in this attack," Graham suggests. "So we're getting a lot more intense coverage now of 'binders' and other silliness because they don't want to focus on Libya."

Instead, says the MRC spokesman, many in the mainstream media are enabling the truth about what happened in Libya to be covered up. He also notes that both ABC and NBC have followed the Obama campaign's theme of emphasizing the effort to win over women voters.

"The news media covers women where they assume that 98 percent of women deeply love their abortions and 98 percent of women must've had three or four. I mean, they just don't seem to understand that among women … a majority [are] pro-lifers," the media analyst offers.

"They just don't understand that at all, or they're basically cynics saying no, no, no -- we're talking about Democratic women, that's who needs to stay in the fold, and they're thinking young women."

If Obama truly saw the murders in Libya as a terrorist attack from the beginning, Graham contends he would not have blamed the murders on a video six times during his September 25 speech before the United Nations General Assembly -- two weeks after the attack. One day later, The Washington Times pointed out while others in the White House had begun calling the attack "terrorism," the president had yet to do so.
