We told you about the recent reports that President Obama told the American people there were no chemical weapons in Syria even though he knew that wasn’t true.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, the mainstream media did their best to completely ignore the story.
For all the talk and faux-concern about truth-telling in the media as of late, you would think the networks would jump on a story that revealed government officials not only lied to the public, but did so on a very serious issue. While Politifact retracted its “mostly true” rating for John Kerry’s 2014 statement last week, the networks have yet to report. ABC, NBC and CBS’ morning news broadcasts ignored the officials’ confessions Monday morning.
CBS This Morning even danced around the issue in an interview with ex-Obama ambassador to Syria, Robert Ford. While talking about the history of Obama, Russia and Syria’s chemical weapons negotiations, it would’ve been the perfect moment to bring up these admissions, but CBS bypassed on that idea.
Another media fail.
