Earlier today, three whistleblowers testified before a House committee investigating security decisions made prior to the Benghazi attack, the attack itself, the Obama administration's response to the attack and charges of  a cover-up.

If you were counting on the Big 3 broadcast networks and the establishment press to tell you what this was all about, you'd have had a tough time. Nothing illustrates this situation better than CBS News' web page late this afternoon. At about 2 p.m. PDT (my late, brief lunch break), this was the Most Popular search on the CBS News homepage:

CBSNews_MostPop

 

This was the most discussed story:

CBSNews_MostDisc

 

Here is a complete screenshot of the CBS News page at that same time. See if you can locate the subject of those two stories.

You'll need to click on it to see it full size, but for those having difficulty finding Waldo, it's at the bottom under the "Politics" header.

So much for the idea of giving your customers what they want.

Journalism. Wound. Self-inflicted.
