Benghazi Committee

The latest rounds of Hillary Clinton testifying before the Benghazi Committee took place Thursday.

To be honest, I looked at it as little more than a charade. It's not that I think Clinton shouldn't be made to answer questions for State Department failures on the night of 9/11/2012. But it's been painfully obvious for some time now that the media is so far in the tank for her that the positive spins on her performance were likely written preemptively.

An example of "journalism" throughout coverage of Clinton's testimony:

Short of fire bombing the testimony room or hiding under the table in the fetal position, Mrs. Clinton was going to be held in the highest esteem by her media enablers.

Sure, I believe there was some important new information brought forth in Thursday's testimony (e.g. Clinton telling the Egyptian prime minister it was a terrorist attack or how she did not speak with either Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta or Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey the evening of 9/11/2012, etc.). Unfortunately none of those findings will be all that highly touted in what has become a culture that values theatrics more than deliberate interrogation.

Sleep tight, America.
