Democratic Pollster Pat Cadell rightly slams the MSM over its failure to report on the terrorist attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya in which a US ambassador and three other Americans were killed. Why would they neglect this? because they want to protect Barack Obama who made a few brief regretful noises before hopping on Air Force 1 to go to Las Vegas for a fundraiser and proceeded to lie about the attack for nine days (and counting), blaming it on a spontaneous reaction to an obscure YouTube video instead of what it really was; a planned and coordinated attack, most likely as a response to his repeated football spiking, end-zone dancing by Obama over the killing of Osama Bin Laden. They are letting us know they are not defeated.
This was a major foreign policy and security failure that because it reflects badly on the Won, must not be spoken of.
Here is the take-away portion of Pat Cadell’s remarks:
“The press’s job is to stand in the ramparts and protect the liberty and freedom of all of us from a government and from organized governmental power. When they desert those ramparts and decide that they will now become active participants, that their job is not simply to tell you who you may vote for, and who you may not, but, worse—and this is the danger of the last two weeks—what truth that you may know, as an American, and what truth you are not allowed to know, they have, then, made themselves a fundamental threat to the democracy, and, in my opinion, made themselves the enemy of the American people.

The Fourth Estate is getting to look more like a Fifth Column. They cannot be trusted to tell us the truth.
