Damning: CBS Buried Its Own Scoop to Help Obama Win the 2012 Election, And Isn't Answering Questions About It
— Ace

Howard Kurtz reported a scoop from Sharyl Attkisson's book Stonewalled:

Perhaps the most eye-opening tale involves CBS’s “60 Minutes,” Benghazi and the president. During the second presidential debate in 2012, Obama challenged Mitt Romney by insisting he had labeled the assault in Libya a terrorist attack the very next day. This became a huge controversy, especially since CNN’s Candy Crowley had sided with the president.

Turns out that Steve Kroft had conducted a “60 Minutes” interview with Obama the day after the attack, portions of which had never aired. When Attkisson did a story on the flap, her CBS bosses instructed her to use a particular script and a particular sound bite that seemed to back up the president’s version.

She was stunned when a CBS colleague later read her another exchange from the interview:

KROFT: Mr. President, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word terrorism in connection with the Libya attack.

OBAMA: Right.

The correspondent then asked point-blank:

KROFT: Do you believe that this was a terrorist attack?

OBAMA: Well, it’s too early to know exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on Americans.

Attkisson writes, “I couldn’t get past the fact that upper-level journalists at CBS had been a party to misleading the public.”

Under pressure from Attkisson and others, the network posted the exchange on its website the Sunday night before the election, but it got lost in the final hours of the campaign. She says CBS News President David Rhodes promised her there would be an internal investigation, but she never heard another word about it.

John Sexton has some questions for CBS --though they're currently refusing any comment at all on anything to do with Sheryl Attkisson.

Nevertheless, he wrote an email to CBS:

I sent 60 Minutes an inquiry about all of this today. My email recounts the story above and ends with these questions:

Why didn’t CBS News release the clip the moment it became a significant part of a major news story, i.e. the President’s big moment in the critical 2nd debate?

Why was Sharyl Attkisson told to use another clip that backed up the President and not the one that cast doubt on his claim? Who made the decision?

Why did 60 Minutes finally release the clip quietly just hours before the election, weeks after it was newsworthy?

What happened to the investigation CBS News President David Rhodes promised? Was it started? Completed? What did it find?

Finally, if someone were to say this represented a clear case of intentional bias by 60 Minutes/CBS News--and an important one given that it took place at a critical moment in the election cycle--what would be your response?

Sexton has a few more tidbits: Pulitzer Prize winning reporter Susan Schmidt says of the media's relationship to Obama:

"With some exceptions, people don't seem to be digging as hard as they have in other administrations," Schmidt tells the Daily Beast's Lloyd Grove. She adds, "Obama came into office saying he was going to make his administration the most accessible and transparent in history; in fact, the opposite has happened."

He also collects up more information about the hacking of Sharyl Attkisson's computers.

Eric Wemple wrote to the one named cybersecurity expert who investigated Attkisson's hacking. (Two others were identified with psuedonyms.)

Erik Wemple at the Post contacted Don Allison to confirm and possibly expand on the information in Attkisson's book about the hacking. Today he received a response from Korelogic's President Bob Austin. Austin explained that his company signed a non-disclosure agreement (apparently this is standard) which prevents the company from speaking about the work they did for their client. Austin would not even confirm who he was working for when he signed the agreement, though Wemple suspects it was CBS News.

Three experts examined Attkisson's computer, one on her behalf and two on behalf of CBS News. All three found definite evidence of hacking and all three suspected, for various reasons, the hacker was working for the U.S. government. The fact that Attkisson was doggedly pursuing this administration's "phony scandals" while all of this was happening to her computer raises the distinct possibility it was politically motivated. It's a possibility that seems worthy of congressional investigation.

It's a possibility that seems worthy of a CBS Investigation, too, but Good Luck With That.

Supposedly there were emails sent to both Ben Rhodes and David Rhodes about Sheryl's reporting. Every time this story is talked about it should include the fact that Ben Rhodes wrote Obama's Cairo speech and that soon afterwards Ben Rhodes was appointed as Obama's "special" advisor on "The Arab Spring". Ben Rhodes had more than just a passing interest in squashing the abysmal failure of the Libya kinetic action resulting in the Benghazi debacle and the murder of a US Ambassador. Not accidental death--but murder.

140 The whole "he didn't call it terrorism" line of attack was stupid and trivial in the first place. If, instead of that Mitt had come out with "the attack went on for hours and hours, and there were people who could have been sent in to save our personnel but weren't, and Barack knew this and is directly responsible for the outcome, the President knows this and should accept responsibility but we know he won't", it would have been a much more powerful argument. This and many other examples confirm that Mitt had simply risen to his level of incompetence (Presidential candidate). He should not get another chance to muck it up.

172 "That shit in the debate completely took the wind out of his sails. He was destroying. And then that bitch knowingly lied and covered for Obama and made Mitt look bad. He lost confidence. He stopped being aggressive."

Mitt's son said later that his dad "never really wanted to be President," and it certainly seemed that after winning the first debate, the Mittbot suddenly shorted out. Perhaps a kernel panic at the thought he might actually win.

Let's remember how they got onto Benghazi in the first place in the debate. Obama was asked an audience question about why the Ambassador had been denied enhanced security.

An obvious hot potato question, and Obama gave an artful, carefully coached, long-winded, and completely nonresponsive answer.

Romney should have simply and pointedly said, "You did NOT answer the audience member's very clear question, Mr. Obama. I'll ask it again for them. WHY were enhanced security requests from the Ambassador denied?"

Instead, Romney gave this utterly flustered-sounding segue.

"Thank you Kerry for your question, it's an important one. And -- and I -- I think the president just said correctly that the buck does stop at his desk and -- and he takes responsibility for -- for that -- for the failure in providing those security resources, and -- and those terrible things may well happen from time to time. I -- I'm -- I feel very deeply sympathetic for the families of those who lost loved ones. And today there's a memorial service for one of those that was lost in this tragedy. We -- we think of their families and care for them deeply. There were other issues associated with this -- with this tragedy. There were many days that passed before we knew whether this was a spontaneous demonstration, or actually whether it was a terrorist attack."

Blather blather whimper whimper something something.

Well, at least Mitt was spared the terrible personal burden of assuming the duties of the Presidency. Let's not lose sight of what's really important here.

200 They. Don't. Care.

For some ungodly reason, decision makers at the top of all the national news networks decided that they will hide or spin any gaffe, hide any error, delete any story, sidetrack any investigation, ignore news stories broken by the foreign press about what is happening in the US to prevent any negative push back by the majority of the electorate.

And they've failed. Because the polls show that people are not deceived. In fact their very antics have highlighted the mistakes made. Plus even they have to report some of what happens and they can't (yet) force people to accept their view point on all of it.

They're losing money and readership and yet they still continue.

They cannot admit they're wrong and so they will be hoist on their very own self made petard.

They're in for another shock when they find that the old standards of gotcha journalism won't work very well anymore on the GOP. Even the Stupid Party eventually gets what they're up to and that they don't have to worry about them as much anymore.

Congratulations MFM, you've marginalized yourself, destroyed any appearance of integrity and laid low the only country in the world that nurtured your profession.

Posted by: Bitter Clinger and All That at October 30, 2014 07:10 PM (KK+mC) While most of the MSM are certainly brainwashed libtards, remember that this is driven by the network presidents themselves - the big money socialists. I know that the billionaire elites like Soros basically want a feudal world, with them on top and the rest of us serfs dependent on the government. They want crony capitalism which keeps them rich and powerful and crushes competition. That is what makes the MSM so hard to counter - the big bucks behind it. However, I still don't get what the end game is. The elites in the old USSR got perks and privileges nobody else got - like access to the West and decent goods instead the shoddy crap produced behind the Iron Curtain. When the whole world is socialist, where do these billionaires think their luxury goods are going to come from? Do they think its OK if the whole world is a third world shithole with little pockets of wealth in Manhattan and San Fran and some fashionable resorts and playgrounds?

A crime was committed in the hacking of Sharyl Atkisson's computer.   CBS News knew that a crime had been committed, possibly with connections to the Obama Administration.   Meanwhile, CBS News appears to have been suppressing information damaging to the Obama Administration about the same story that Atkisson was working on -- the Benghazi cover-up.   Were there contacts between high-level people at CBS News (hint:  David Rhodes) and high-level people at the White House (hint:  Ben Rhodes, his brother, who was involved in the Benhazi cover-up)?   Is it inconceivable that Rhodes, with motive to help his brother, might do so?   Wouldn't all of that, at least theoretically, be a conspiracy?

268 When the whole world is socialist, where do these billionaires think their luxury goods are going to come from? "Then she saw the answer; she saw the secret premise behind their words. With all of their noisy devotion to the age of science, their hysterically technological jargon, their cyclotrons, their sound rays, these men were moved forward, not by the image of an industrial skyline, but by the vision of that form of existence which the industrialists had swept away—the vision of a fat, unhygienic rajah of India, with vacant eyes staring in indolent stupor out of stagnant layers of flesh, with nothing to do but run precious gems through his fingers and, once in a while, stick a knife into the body of a starved, toil-dazed, germ-eaten creature, as a claim to a few grains of the creature's rice, then claim it from hundreds of millions of such creatures and thus let the rice grains gather into gems."

272 I want to do a minor "war on women" rant. I have a Hispanic Representaive, Jaime Herrera-Buetler. She's a Repub in WA state. She's been good, but she had a daughter with a rare critical disease. They didn't think she was going to live but she has pulled through. So today, I get a flyer from her challenger, Bob Dingenthal. Sounds like an old white guy to me. It talked about the missed votes (when the daughter was sick, but of course they didn't mention that was why she missed them.) It said that she dared vote for her party 90% of the time! Wow, we'd throw a Dem out of office for doing that. If the parties were reversed and it was the evil white Repub guy saying those things about a working mom trying to save her daughter, well the campaign literature writes itself. Anytime I've asked Jaime's office for help, I've gotten it. If you ask Patty Murray for help, you get a form letter. War on Women indeed.

275 "She had thought that industrial production was a value not to be questioned by anyone; she had thought that these men's urge to expropriate the factories of others was their acknowledgment of the factories value. She, born of the industrial revolution, had not held as conceivable, had forgotten along with the tales of astrology and alchemy, what these men knew in their secret, furtive souls, knew not by means of thought, but by means of that nameless muck which they called their instincts and emotions: that so long as men struggle to stay alive, they'll never produce so little but that the man with the club won't be able to seize it and leave them still less, provided millions of them are willing to submit—that the harder their work and the less their gain, the more submissive the fiber of their spirit—that men who live by pulling levers at an electric switchboard, are not easily ruled, but men who live by digging the soil with their naked fingers, are—that the feudal baron did not need electronic factories in order to drink his brains away out of jeweled goblets, and neither did the rajahs of the People's State of India. She saw what they wanted and to what goal their "instincts," which they called unaccountable, were leading them. She saw that Eugene Lawson, the humanitarian, took pleasure at the prospect of human starvation—and Dr. Ferris, the scientist, was dreaming of the day when men would return to the hand-plow."

(brandishing ampersands) at October 30, 2014 07:35 PM (+XMAD) Good comment. I don't have an answer. Throughout history, in the pre-industrial era, the elites lived much better than the peasants. They had luxury items and ate better than the majority. Yet they did not have sanitation, modern medicine, or high technology. Even for royalty, their lives were mean by today's standards, and they suffered from diseases and crippling injuries. Maybe it just boils down to this: They are power-hungry control freaks who cannot tolerate the fact that modern capitalism has produced a world where many millions of middle-class people live comfortable and satisfying lives, and are not dependent on the elites. We do not need or want them. They seem determined to make us pay for such effrontery.

"In any Kingdom, the inherent tension, nay, insoluable conflict, between a King's Queen and his chosen Empress will inevitably lead to horrors such as:

1.  Civil War;

2.  Vivisection without Anesthesia; and.or,

3.  An utterly ungovernable kingdom.

This Bard strongly recommends that only one of these Courtly positions be filled at any one time; upon pain of Utter Destruction (see, SMOD, Vol. VIII - Otherworldly Threats to the Kingdom, pp 971 - 1013)."

I think part of the problem is megalomania coupled with the belief that everything will go on for them as it has in the past, except that now they will be in charge. Since they have no technical background, other than their "science" courses in politics, they have no idea how fast the wheels come off without skilled maintenance.  The megalomania also accounts for the fact that they are convinced that even although their path may result in squalor for the masses, they will wind up with just a smidgen less squalor in their lives than the peons do.
