LIBYA: The media’s cover-up of the cover-up

It has been nearly two months since four U.S. citizens were murdered by Muslim terrorists on American soil in Libya, and the Obama administration – which promised to be so transparent – has still not even attempted to let the American people know what actually transpired before, during or after the slaughter.

Unfortunately, the liberal media are complicit in the cover-up because instead of demanding that the president hold a news conference to let the public know what really happened, with the exception of Fox News, they have been largely silent about the matter.

The job of the news media should be to spread the news, not to suppress it by ignoring it.

Come on Mr. President: We are Americans, we can handle the truth.
