Unbelievable! Fox News’ Greta Reveals White House Called on Her to Squelch Reporting on Benghazi!
In a really amazing but unbelievable segment on her Fox News’ show, Greta Van Susteren revealed that the Obama administration called her and pressured her to persuade a colleague against investigating too deeply into Benghazi!
Gateway Pundit provides a transcript:
“Since day one of Benghazi FOX News has been aggressively investigating. It hasn’t been easy. It’s been more like pulling teeth to get answers from the Obama administration. The Obama administration’s behavior post Benghazi has been weird. Like they’re trying to hide something. First that silly story about that video. Remember Susan Rice on all the Sunday talk shows? Even President Obama kept talking about the video for weeks.
So FOX continued to press for information… A few weeks later when FOX news reporter Jennifer Griffin said she was told there was a stand-down order at Benghazi, I got a weird call from the Obama administration trying to pressure me to get Jennifer to back down on her report. I thought the call from the Obama administration was dirty.
Incidentally, I don’t control my colleagues and they don’t control me.”
That the White House would do such a thing is alarming, but what should anger everyone even more, is the possibility that they called other journalists who complied with the request. Remember how much zeal left-wing reporters have smugly laughed at right-wing inquiries into Benghazi? Now imagine if they knew all along there was something there, but pretended there wasn’t because the “most transparent administration” asked them to cover it up?
This ain’t over by a long shot.
