It is true that one side is having more coverage and that is a diservice.

Yes, I have been following the story and can't believe how the national media isn't covering it. I get my news from Fox news and the Drudge. My heart breakes for all the young men that were killed and didn't receive any help. I did see the Seal's father on tv and it was so sad. It also has been covered by several talk radio shows.

I said it before, I think early on in this thread even, this is not a political issue. This isn't even an American issue. Terrorism is something everyone around the world should be equally against.

To me, there is only one side. Americans. That's the truth.

We should ALL be concerned about what happened in Benghazi. The information that HAS come out from this is very disturbing. We should see this through one single lens, as Americans. What happened? Why? How can it be prevented in the future? Who is responsible?

Sorry, I should have been clearer. I meant there are only a couple of news sources covering this in depth while most of the media is ignoring it.
godlikeproductions has a ton of information. I did not mean my post to bepolitical. Since we were discusiing media, I thought my meaning would be apparent.

No, no, I wasn't saying you were being political. I was commenting on what you said about only one side reporting on it when there should only be one side -- against terrorism, no politics.

The lack of real journalists in the American news is heartbreaking. They were the ones looking out for us and it feels like every issue is politicized now

Benghazi should be discussed and the truth told- whatever that may be. If nothing wrong happened, prove it. If something wrong happened, prove it. And it should have happened on sept 12. Not going on 2 months later

So sad.

Now that sexual misconduct in involved, the press has to cover it.
Well, that plus it seems like now is a better time to cover it also. Rather than 2 months ago.

Hello . . . Hello. . . .Hello. . .

Hear that? It's called an echo chamber.

Other news outlets all over the world aren't reporting on it because they don't MAKE news, they just REPORT the news.

They don't report on it for the same reason they don't report on the Aliens landing on the Moon.

You honestly think that other countries with far more sensationalistic media would skip reporting on something to keep us happy? Rly?
