Just when you think that liberal "journalists" can't grow any more biased or offensive, along comes someone like The Daily Beast's Eleanor Clift (who formerly helped edit Newsweek magazine into oblivion with a succession of cover articles praising Barack Obama's God-like perfection).
Clift, while discussing Benghazi on a Sunday news talk program, angrily said "I would like to point out that Ambassador Stevens was not murdered. He died of smoke-inhalation in the safe room in that CIA installation!"
That's right- Stevens wasn't murdered by anyone, he was simply a victim of bad ventilation! And you know the thousands of people who died in the World Trade Center? Presumably Clift believes that they weren't murdered by terrorists either - they all just happened to die of natural causes like fire, falling, and being inside collapsing buildings.
Or maybe she'd like to argue that during the Holocaust, the death camp victims weren't murdered by anyone - they just happened to die because of cyanide gas inhalation.
Clift's suggestion that no one was murdered in Benghazi (and by extension that there are no murderers to bring to justice) is appalling beyond belief. But astoundingly, she wasn't finished - she also insisted that the attack was a spontaneous demonstration in reaction to the infamous YouTube video, a preposterous whopper that even spokesliar Susan Rice dropped like a scalding potato almost two years ago.
Sadly, Eleanor Clift's willful ignorance and sneering disregard for both life and facts are nothing unusual in what passes for journalism today - and people like her continue peddling propaganda and lies secure in the belief that the Obama administration makes it safe for them to do so.
But remember, Eleanor, it was also this administration that assured Ambassador Stevens that he had a safe room.
