The Top Ten Misreported And Underreported Stories Of 2016

Accuracy in Media

As we look back on 2016, we would like to highlight some of the American media’s worst abuses that occurred during the past year, including coverage of the very divisive election campaign. We have picked ten stories in which the media were either derelict in their duty to report the truth, or sold a false or biased narrative to the public that furthered the left’s agenda. In other cases, the media missed the story altogether or made excuses for their own biased reporting. We could easily have picked additional stories that meet those criteria, but arbitrarily chose to look at ten, in no particular order.

  1.    Presidential Election Coverage
  2.    Hillary Clinton Email / National Security Scandal
  3.    Clinton Foundation / Pay for Play
  4.    Rigged FBI Investigation
  5.    Obama’s Legacy Failures
  6.    Iran Nuclear Deal
  7.    Obamacare
  8.    The Economy
  9.    Terror Attacks in the United States (Islamic Terror)
  10.    Benghazi

An update: The Hillary For Prison Movement Story (When does she go?)

yard sign

Free Republic

**SNIP**

Through all the craziness, we knew that we were doing the right thing in spreading the message, because we realized that true journalism in the US was failing the American Public. The US media let the Clintons wipe away the messages of their crimes, and the news stories just covered the Kardashians and other vapid blather… but through the Hillary For Prison Movement, the AMERICAN PUBLIC said “NO, we want to talk about Benghazi, we want to talk about Classified Emails, we want to talk about Perjury.” If the media won’t keep the conversation active, then WE need to educate the public and prevent the Hillary from whitewashing her crimes so she could get into the Whitehouse.

We helped the American Voting Public make a decision about who should be our next US President and Commander in Chief. They saw her crimes and momentum for charges she had… and they chose NO. They said NO HILLARY, not this year, not the next 4 years, not EVER. And now, after the stunning victory of the Presidential Election, we can’t let up… She can still be pardoned, she can still escape charges, but Trump promised on LIVE TV during the debates, to put her in PRISON! As an educated, informed American Public, we have to hold him to that promise. We have to ensure that Trump’s Justice Department appoints a special prosecutor and brings the ROCK SOLID CASE to her and she gets sentenced to prison. The ghosts, families and survivors of Benghazi deserve no less. The American Public deserves no less.

The “No Scandals” Obama Administration Revisited

Family Security Matters

by ROGER ARONOFF

No matter how many times it is disproved, members of the Obama administration and the liberal media continue to claim that President Barack Obama has overseen a scandal-free executive branch during his two terms in office. Nothing could be further from the truth. Fast & Furious [1], the IRS targeting scandal [2], Benghazi [3], and the Veterans Administration scandal [4] are but a taste of President Obama’s scandal-ridden leadership.

The latest in the voices declaring Obama scandal-free is senior advisor Valerie Jarrett, who said recently on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” that “The President prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal and that he hasn’t done something to embarrass himself. But that’s not because he’s being someone other than who he is. That’s because that’s who he is, that’s who they are, and I think that’s what really resonates with the American people.” A fawning Zakaria also asked Jarrett about Obama’s “cool,” “discipline,” and “dignity” on his January 1 show [5], which was entitled “Voices From the Obama Years.” “Over the last few months, we have had extraordinary access to the White House, to officials current and former. It was all for a documentary about President Obama’s legacy,” said Zakaria.

With President Obama set to step down this month and give way to soon-to-be President Donald Trump, the media are even more eager to contrast the current President with his already demonized successor.

Hillary’s State Department Hired Terrorists to Guard Benghazi Mission

Hillary’s State Department ignored internal advice  and hired an obscure firm from Wales called Blue Mountain Group to protect U.S. diplomats in Benghazi. They in turn put out a newspaper ad in the local terror-plagued region and, took those applicants to assemble a team of 20 guards, many with terror ties.

The firm was paid $9.2 million per year for that.

What does an ad like that look like, “Wanted, trustworthy guards for U.S. mission”?

Fox News spoke to a source about this.

FBI finds up to 30 deleted Benghazi emails Clinton did not turn over

 Powerline

I hadn’t intended to write two Hillary Clinton email posts tonight. However, news that FBI investigators recovered 30 Benghazi-related emails from Hillary Clinton’s wiped server is potentially too important not to comment on right away.

Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta today that some of the 30 recovered emails relating to Benghazi — they didn’t say now many — were not included in the 55,000 pages previously provided by Clinton. The State Department’s lawyer also told the judge that the Department needs until the end of September to review the emails and redact potentially classified information before they are released.

Judge Mehta was skeptical. He questioned why it would take so long to release so few documents, urged that the process be expedited, and ordered the department to report to him in a week with more details about why the review process would take a full month.

As AP points out, Clinton previously has claimed that she withheld and deleted only personal emails not related to her duties as Secretary of State. Clearly, though, any and all Benghazi-related emails related to those duties

If it turns out that some of the newly recovered emails contain new content, as opposed to just duplicating previously turned over material, Hillary will be caught in yet another lie — this one relating to Benghazi, an area of particular vulnerability.

In addition, it’s possible that the recovered emails contain incriminating information about Clinton’s handling of Benghazi and/or the truthfulness of her public comments about the debacle. Such emails are just the ones Team Clinton would have the greatest incentive to destroy.

Here’s where the issue of redaction may be important. As Judge Mehta told the government, redacting 30 or fewer emails should be a simple task — one that does not require a month to accomplish. However, redacting them artfully enough to prevent damage to Hillary Clinton is a bit more complicated, if it comes to that.

Amb. Stevens’s Deputy in Libya: Washington Did Not Ensure We Had Ability to Protect Ourselves

The State Department’s second-ranking diplomat in Libya on the day that terrorists attacked the U.S. facilities in Benghazi and killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods says a key lesson Americans should take from that event is that officials in Washington, D.C. have a responsibility to make sure Americans serving their country abroad have the ability to protect themselves.

“That did not happen in Benghazi,” says Gregory Hicks, who was the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli on Sept. 11, 2012.

“I think, first, that I hope that the American people will appreciate the risks that diplomats and intelligence officers and our military personnel take to protect and preserve our democracy and our way of life,” Hicks said in an interview with CNSNews.com.

“Every day, we risk our lives out in some of the most dangerous environments and conditions imaginable,” he said. “And our officials in Washington have a responsibility: They have a responsibility to ensure that we have the ability to protect ourselves, to be protected, when we are risking our lives for our country. That did not happen in Benghazi.
