Media Cover-Up: Politico Buries Libya
If you are looking for proof that left-wing, Obama-shilling outlets like Politico put their partisan agenda above commerce, just take a look below at screen shots of Politico's front page taken Tuesday morning at 9:10 am ET.
If you look waaaaaay down the page, circled in red is the only story on Libya currently occupying any space on Politico's front page. Also circled is the fact that this story is the second most popular on the Politico site.
Now, if Politico is all about commerce and clicks, you would think the left-wing outlet would produce or promote a few more Libya stories to satisfy its majority of consumers who are obviously interested in this story.
Furthermore, if Politico were anything close to an objective news outlet, you would think the fact that the three whistleblowers scheduled to testify before Congress Wednesday are expected to contradict the White House's narrative surrounding the September 11 anniversary attack on our consulate in Libya, would be big news. But Politico is not anything close to an objective news outlet.
During the 2012 election, Politico was a leader in conspiring with the rest of the media to make sure Libya was either ignored, downplayed, or used as a weapon against Mitt Romney. And as I wrote yesterday, even though Obama has safely crossed the re-election finish line, the media will continue to aid and abet the White House's Libya cover-up. The stakes are even higher now. First off, Libya could hurt the media's 2016 presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton. Secondly, media outlets like Politico need to protect their own part in the cover-up when the story originally broke.
