Starting to get annoying. Via MM.
Nevertheless, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said that he has personally urged House Speaker John Boehner to create a Very Special Benghazi Panel in light of "the building momentum in the House.”
Memo to Linds: The only "momentum in the House" has come from rabid Republicans falling all over themselves to destroy Hillary Clinton's possible run for president and the current president's legacy.
That's kind of like Fox saying that momentum was building for the invasion of Iraq because Judith Miller planted a bunch of lies in the New York Times, and then quoting "a New York Times report" to make their case. Creating news and then reporting that creation as news will indeed build momentum... in some circles. And those circles find themselves going in circles to push any fantasy and propaganda that will benefit their side regardless of where real facts or credible witnesses who they refuse to call might lead them.
A day after three State Department whistle-blowers criticized the administration’s response to the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) suggested the Speaker risked becoming “complicit” in a cover-up if he doesn't create a special panel.
“The revelations at yesterday’s hearing have raised serious questions about the administration’s efforts to respond to the Americans under fire at the annex in Benghazi,” he said in a letter to Boehner. “What remains to be seen is whether the House will be complicit in that failure, or if we will pursue the truth — wherever it may take us — to ensure that we continue to deserve the sacrifices made by the men and women who serve our country.”
Wolf has 139 co-sponsors, which amounts to nearly 60 percent of the House Republican Conference.
Sorry, did I say co-sponsors? I meant co-clowns.
I checked into the story about the Nightline reporter, Dave Marash. Here is what he said about "bias"
Marash garnered considerable attention when he joined Al Jazeera English in January 2006 as the network's Washington, D.C. anchor, thus becoming the de facto American face of the new English-language station. Two years later, in March 2008, he stepped down from his position. Marash explained, "To put it bluntly, the channel that's on now — while excellent, and I plan to be a lifetime viewer — is not the channel that I signed up to do." Specifically, he cited the loss of editorial control and his inability to vouch for content that the network was broadcasting, as reasons for his departure.
On February 14, 2011 however, Dave Marash defended Al Jazeera English on the O'Reilly Factor on Fox News against claims by Bill O'Reilly that Al Jazeera was anti-American.

Idiots. I wonder how Megyn Kelly and company would react if they actually learned that Al Jazeera is already available in DC over the air (no cable required) and on every cable provider...
Ah, here we go.
