While the massive, historic cover-up continues, some are fighting for the truth when it comes to Benghazi. Sarah Steelman is doing just that. This week she calls out Hillary Clinton and makes it crystal clear that it does in fact make a difference to understand why things went down the way they did that night on September 11, 2012. Steelman says understanding why and what went wrong will help prevent it from happening again. A classic case of history repeating itself looms if the cards are not put on the table. Steelman is calling on one principled Democrat to speak out and stand up to the Clinton-Obama machine. Steelman can not believe not one Democrat is demanding answers. Listen NOW!
Good Morning America on Wednesday greeted the death of Hugo Chavez by avoiding the word “socialist.” Instead, GMA's Brandi Hitt touted the repressive leader as someone who “appeared to never back down from a challenge.” The reporter never mentioned Chavez’s crackdown on free speech or democracy. Instead, she featured a woman in the streets of Venezuela gushing, “He’s a man that cared about us…He did not give anything to me, but he gave it to my people.”
Over on Today, NBC’s Mark Potter offered this friendly description of the individual who made friends with Iranian dictator Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: “Many here were still surprised when he died, in part because of his larger-than-life personality.” Potter announced that crowds in Caracas were chanting “Chavez lives” and “the struggle continues.” Both Today and Good Morning America made sure to play footage of Chavez’s 2006 appearance at the United Nations. There, the authoritarian leaded mocked George W. Bush as “the devil.”
