Could there be more behind the MSM’s refusal to investigate the Obama administration?

Sure, many of the talking heads and most visible journalists are blatant Obama sycophants.  But, why is the refusal to investigate Obama and his administration so pervasive?

Are there really no young and eager investigative journalists who want to make a name for themselves – and to hell with ideology?

While the brainwashing most liberal arts (journalism included) students are subjected to in Colleges and Universities may account for much of it, there may be more to it than just liberalism’s willful blindness:

‘I was on the brunt end of the Obama-generated censorship while employed at CNN as an investigative correspondent.

On at least a weekly basis, and to my constant frustration, my superiors and CNN’s lawyers were quick to remind me that we need to be extra careful because “President Obama has gone after more journalists and whistleblowers than any president in history”.  The leash around my neck began to tighten.

Whether I was allowed to embark on future stories or even interview sensitive sources for potential investigations, eventually became an ‘Obama subpoena risk assessment’ and potential court cost calculation, rather than a pure evaluation of the report’s contribution to public good or our journalistic duty to cover the story.

Some of my most crucial investigations were killed before they started because they were too high a risk of an Obama subpoena.

One boss told me quote “we know how the FBI feels about your source, if we have information the FBI will want we become a target”.’

I don’t know just how reliable this blogger is, but her read-worthy post includes many links to reputable sites with material confirming her observations.

Worth thinking about…

 

 

Did General Ham defy orders and tried to send help to Benghazi?

This is just getting weirder and weirder…..

James Robinson from the Washington Times is reporting that a ‘trusted source’ said that the top US commander in Africa, General Ham, tried to send help to the besieged Mission in Benghazi – defying orders to do so – only to be relieved of duty and the help stopped:

‘The information I heard today was that General Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready. 

General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command. 

The story continues that now General Rodiguez would take General Ham’s place as the head of Africom. ‘

This directly contradicts Panetta’s statement, that General Ham advised they not go in until they have more intelligence…
And as for the story of the nanny on New York who is said to have murdered two of her charges and then cut her own throat, just hours after her boss is said to have published something connecting the people in the Obama administration to a money-laundering scheme with an Iran connection, only to have the original story ‘dissappear’ (it now exists only as a screenshot) …
Weirder and weirder!!!
UPDATE:  More on the nanny who is being reported to have tried to commit suicide by slitting her own throat is here.
