New York Times Trying to Fog up Benghazi

Rep. Peter King is blasting the New York Times over a report they have published that tries to muddy the waters over the Benghazi attack, basically trying to take us back to the claim that there was no terrorist involvement, and it really was over a video tape produced in the US that mocked the Prophet Muhammad.

Just one problem, NY Times: The administration has admitted that it was a terrorist attack after their claims of a videotape were proven to be false.

So why is the Times trying to rehabilitate the administration now, specifically President Obama and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

I think I answered my own question.

It seems to me that the Times is trying to prepare the way for an inevitable Clinton presidential campaign in which the issue of her poor performance before, during, and her lies after Benghazi will be not be a big campaign. issue.

If true, this is another example of how far the Times has sunk under Arthur O. Sulzberger Jr. (who we were just writing about a couple of days ago).

Peter King muddies the waters with poorly substantiated but politically convenient assumptions.

The NY Times publishes a detailed a thoroughly researched report.

Peter King finds the report inconsistent with his personal preferences, predilections, and political advantage.

Peter King denounces the NY Times for "muddying the waters."

Fousesquawk aligns with Peter King.


As my fourth grade teacher used to say of so many entrenched prejudices, "My mind's made up. Don't confuse me with the facts."

The New York Times needs to clean up Hillary's reputation. Expect more cleaning in the future.

Next the Times will do a thoroughly researched report that Bill never had sex with Monica Lewinsky.

No they won't Gary. Who could they interview who would tell them that?

A strained analogy is no refutation for thorough research.
