Republican October "Hope"

Yellow Journalism that informs less!
From the completely irascible John McCain, across the full gallery of GOP surrogates and pundits, Benghazi is their "Rebel" yell for November 6, 2012. The mantra is nothing shy of a call for votes, with little regard for what actually took place in the attack.  

No surrogate, hater (McCain, nor pundit can speak to the GOP hope more than their dedicated non-news network Fox News (The GOP Propaganda and Public Relations Network).

Fox Propaganda and Public Relations Network fulfills its anti-progressive and anti-Obama mission with the efficiency and effectiveness of Joseph Goebbel's Public Enlightenment and Propaganda Ministry during the Third Reich.  Two credible University Studies have documented results Fox New viewers are less informed (about current word events), or they are likely to fall victim to misinformation. The latter is a propagandists dream and fertile ground.

Alas, despite all Fox News viewers are as dedicate as the sycophantic followers of Donald Trumps ' Apprentice".  

Before I end with an update on the GOP October hope, allow one more fact related to Fox news and accurate reporting. If you are not aware of the Steve Wilson, Jane Akre, Fox News legal battle in Florida follow this link

While the GOP will hold-on to the October Hope even after the election, should Obama win a second term, more information about the attack has been published.

New Details Discredit Fox News Reports On Benghazi Attacks

A slew of new reporting this morning debunks Fox News reports claiming that the Obama administration withheld assistance during the Sept. 11 attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya. With these revelations, the combined conservative narrative as led by Fox News — that the Obama administration failed to respond adequately during the attack and that mainstream media has not covered Benghazi enough — is in further disarray. 

The Los Angeles Times’ version of the CIA’s role focuses the most heavily on pushing back on Fox’s spin: 

“At every level in the chain of command, from the senior officers in Libya to the most senior officials in Washington, everyone was fully engaged in trying to provide whatever help they could,” a senior intelligence official said in a statement. “There were no orders to anybody to stand down in providing support.” 

Fox reporter Jennifer Griffin claimed in an “exclusive” report last week that the CIA denied Tyrone Woods, one of the four Americans killed in the attack, permission to help repel the assault. Griffin’s reporting spun off into a bevy of conspiracy theories on the far right. The PentagonWhite House, and CIA had all previously denied refusing requests for support. The New York Times reports on the Pentagon’s involvement: 

[A] senior official also sought to rebut reports that C.I.A. requests for support from the Pentagon that night had gone unheeded. 

In fact, the official said, the military diverted a Predator drone from a reconnaissance mission in Darnah, 90 miles away, in time to oversee the mission’s evacuation. The two commandos, based at the embassy in Tripoli, joined the reinforcements. And a military transport plane flew the wounded Americans and Mr. Stevens’s body out of Libya.
