ALEXANDRIA, VA – Last night, ABC World News gave a dismissive 20 seconds of lip service to a
blockbuster report that revealed State Department emails showing that the White
House knew on September 11 that the Benghazi consulate attack was a terrorist
attack. The emails documented that within two hours of the attack, the State
Department had told the Obama administration that an Islamic militant group had
claimed credit for this terrorist attack. The revelation proves that President
Obama and his spokesmen repeatedly lied to the American people. For days,
falsely claiming it was a “video.”
The story broke Tuesday night on CBS Evening News. Since then, according to a
MRC President Brent Bozell reacts:
“Every other network has produced at least one major story. While not enough, in some cases, it’s something. From ABC, it’s nothing.
“ABC is aiding and abetting the Obama administration’s cover-up of their deceitful response to the
“The questions are simple: what did President Obama know? And when did he know it? These emails prove that either Obama knew it was a terrorist attack and lied about it for weeks, or his administration is historically incompetent. Either way, it’s major news and demands more than mere seconds of total coverage from one of the three major broadcast networks.
“ABC has been shielding Obama from the Benghazi fallout for weeks in order to help him win re-election, but the American people see right through it. Their corruption is as obvious as it is unforgivable.”
