Media ignore grieving mom of Benghazi victim while celebrating Hillary Clinton

America’s news media — except for certain isolated outlets such as Fox News, talk radio, and digital news sources — all but popped open the champagne bottles in celebration of what they termed “Hillary Clinton’s 11-hour grilling” and her alleged victory over the GOP investigators seeking answers to the Benghazi terrorist attack and her major role in covering up a mess she made in Libya.

Even some so-called conservatives had their words repeated by the Clinton media armada who have successfully sold their presidential heir apparent’s story to American journalists, arguably some of the most corrupt and dishonest in the world.

At the same time, these corrupt journalists are ignoring family members of the four men who were butchered by Islamic terrorists despite their tears, anguish and anger over not only a Secretary of State who allowed their loved ones to perish, but that now she’s a media favorite to become the Commander in Chief of the entire U.S. military, federal law enforcement and 17 intelligence agencies.

“These so-called news people are the biggest phonies ever to put pen to paper as journalists. I agree with former CBS News correspondent and media critic Bernard Goldberg when he said flat-out on the air ‘the news media are corrupt.’ They have replaced their role of being Americans’ eyes and ears with being partisan liberal-left hacks, for the most part,” said former political strategist Michael Baker. 

Baker also accused the news media of being selective in what they report based on political considerations. For example, Patricia Smith, mother of Sean Smith who was killed in the Benghazi attack, is still waiting to hear the promised answers from Hillary Clinton.

“Three years ago Hillary promised when I went to the casket ceremony in Washington she would get back to me and tell me what happened. She has not contacted me, she has not given me any information except to tell me that I’m not a member of the immediate family and I do not need to know.” 

 “She’s lying!” Smith yelled. “She’s absolutely lying! She told me something entirely different at the casket ceremony. She said it was about the video and that she would get back to me and tell me what happened to my son.”

According to the Sean Hannity Show’s coverage of the Clinton Benghazi hearing, an exchange between a female lawmaker and Clinton revealed that if the media are right about the victory won by the Democrats’ heroine, it is a warped sense of what is or isn’t victorious:

During Hillary Clinton’s testimony to the Select Committee on Benghazi, Indiana Representative Susan Brooks produced an email in which slain Ambassador Chris Stevens and his staff discuss additional security at the doomed diplomatic outpost.

Clinton made light of the situation.

“One of the great attributes Chris Stevens had was a really good sense of humor and I just see him smiling as he’s typing this,” Clinton remarked with a smile. “It is clearly in response to the email down below talking about picking up quote ‘fire sale items’ from the Brits.”

“Those fire sale items, by the way, are barricades,” Brooks interjected.

“That’s right,” Hillary responded.

““They are additional requests for security at the compound, because we


weren’t providing enough physical security,” Brooks added. 

Brooks also noted that the ‘fire sale’ refers to the fact that the British were closing their consulate in Benghazi because they understood the elevated level of danger in the Libyan city.

“They’re picking up a ‘fire sale’ because other consulates were pulling out, other countries were pulling out,” said the Illinois representative. “I don’t think that’s very funny.”

“Well I think it showed their entrepreneurial spirit,” said Clinton.
