Ratings will always trump integrity. Even FoxNews couldn’t keep it together, choosing instead to flake off to the titillating, but irrelevant, Jodi Arias trial.
Indeed, the administration must have been down on its knees giving thanks for the plethora of breaking news items for the ADD-afflicted media to pursue. The president’s sycophant, lap- dog media must have been ebullient as well for the out, having plausibly dodged the bullet of any truthful reporting on their favorite boy.
7 Things We Learned from the Benghazi Whistleblower Hearing
The Republicans mishandled the Benghazi whistleblowers’ hearing. What should have been stretched across several days to give the nation time to digest it all, was instead packed into a single day filled with an overwhelming amount of information. The media’s attention span is not that long. The verdict in the Jodi Arias trial came along in the afternoon and blew Benghazi off the networks, most of which didn’t want to cover it at all. Even Fox joined the drive-by media, taking Benghazi off the air in favor of the irrelevant Arias trial. Following the announcement of the Arias verdict, charges were read in the Cleveland kidnapping case. Those were aired live as well, relegating Benghazi again.
Nevertheless, for those who slogged through the entire day of hearings and ignored local crime stories, new information was there to be learned.
