Jay Leno now hitting Obama harder on Benghazi than lapdog media


Leno: “Have you heard that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is back? This is Obama’s policy on Benghazi. Don’t ask me and I won’t tell you.”

Last night on “The Tonight Show,” Jay Leno went where the lapdog media have refused to go: #Benghazigate. He smacked President Obama, albeit gently, on his shameful attempt to cover up his role in the deaths of four Americans last month:

Twitterers were impressed by Leno’s willingness to call Obama out — and disgusted that it took a comedian to get #Benghazigate on a major network:

@brithume Leno called him out the same way…soft. But at least the word #Benghazi was heard on @nbc.

Imagine the confusion of NBC viewers not knowing what Benghazi is. Leno Pounds Obama on Benghazi shar.es/c9tNQ via @breitbartnews

It’s pretty sad that the only Benghazi coverage on NBC is a Jay Leno joke. “Don’t ask, don’t tell is back: 4 any question 2 pres. O on Libya

@randallking That’s the most coverage NBC has given the Benghazi scandal! Thank you Jay Leno. At least it keeps story alive!

Gotta hand it to Leno, for saying more about#benghazi than the press.

@strokesofcandor Serious question: Has Leno mentioned Benghazi and F&F more than Brian Williams?

— John Ekdahl, Jr. (@JohnEkdahl) October 31, 2012

So I hear Jay Leno talked about the Benghazi cover up before Half of the MSM………..

— BiasedGirl (@BiasedGirl) October 31, 2012

@editmedavid @jtlol Leno has done better reporting on Benghazi than NYT, ABC, NBC, CBS & CNN. Any real journalists left should be ashamed.

Hey @jayleno, pls give B Williams, D Gregory, et al some tips on current events. Weekly Reader sub. lapsed! breitbart.com/Big-Hollywood/…

I wouldn’t hold my breath RT @kurtschlichter:Leno is mocking Obama over Benghazi? Can timid, tentative question from the MSM be far behind?

— Tess Aluise (@TessAluise) October 31, 2012

Indeed. The MSM has thus far demonstrated a willingness to engage in all sorts of narrative acrobatics in order to ensure that #Benghazigate is buried. Their mission: protect the president at all costs, even at the expense of their last shred of integrity. But we will not let the story go untold. Obama and his precious lapdogs may not feel any sense of moral obligation to seek justice for the four brave men who lost their lives last months, but we do.
