Excerpt rom the Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle: If it weren’t so serious, it would be comical to watch the media try to spin the Obama administration scandals the president’s way. When White House spokesman Jay Carney continued Friday to cling desperately to the fairy tale that the administration had not substantively altered the CIA talking points on the Benghazi attack — ABC News has released evidence the talking points were revised 12 times to hide the truth of the attack — some in the media wanted to downplay Carney’s fable.
“Jay Carney has got caught saying something that wasn’t completely true,” liberal commentator David Corn meekly admitted on one talking heads show.
“That’s called a lie, David,” responded Danielle Pletka of the American Enterprise Institute.
Even Watergate legend Carl Bernstein quickly came to Obama’s defense after the IRS admitted targeting conservative groups, saying he “can’t imagine” the outrageous and frightening tactic could’ve had the president’s blessing.
