Media Mocks Concerned Americans Seeking Answers

I am weeping for for my country today.  It used to be that journalism was a profession of honor.  It was a career for seekers of truth; people with curiosity and writing skills who wanted to provide the “who, what, when, where, and why” of what happened in a particular situation.  Providing just the facts allowed the reader to form his/her own opinion on the matter at hand.  Sadly, that seems to no longer be the case as is evidenced here.  Earlier today, The Washington Post posted the following tweet regarding the hearings into what  happened in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012.

In case you’re having a hard time reading the tweet from the above picture, let me help you out:

Who’s tweeting about Benghazi? Rich, middle-aged men and Chick-fil-A lovers http://wapo.st/18YFgKP

Yes, you’re reading that correctly and yes, the “Twitter voice” of the Washington Post has stooped to mocking Americans who are deeply concerned about what transpired in Benghazi that fateful day when  four American lives were lost.

In response to the tweet from the Washington Post, I replied as follows:

My tweet:

@washingtonpost Our ancestors & those that currently serve shed blood & DIE for a free press. Your job is seeking #truth . How dare you!

Posted to Palin’s Facebook page in response to the above:

Is there any wonder why distrust of arrogant, out-of-touch media is at an all-time high? During today’s Benghazi hearings, the Washington Post actually tweeted: “Who’s tweeting about Benghazi? Rich, middle-aged men and Chick-fil-A lovers.” This would be the same Washington Post that broke the story on Watergate. Now they just mock concerned Americans who want answers to why four brave Americans died, including two distinguished vets. And the Obama administration asks, “What does it matter?”

– Sarah Palin

I don’t know that I can pinpoint exactly when journalism died but without a doubt, she’s dead and gone.

    I started to laugh at this piece, but I had to restrain myself due to the fact that this is despicable, a national security issue. Four (4) of our servicemen were killed.

      Jim,
      My heart hurts for those families that lost loved ones. It seems that protecting this administration is job number one.
