John McCain to David Gregory: ‘Do you care why 4 Americans died?’

Sen. John McCain went after NBC host David Gregory for not sharing in his strong desire to find out the extent of the White House’s involvement in the attack in Benghazi that killed four Americans.

McCain also said there has been a “massive cover up.”

Here’s more from former Romney adviser Richard Grenell on Gregory’s deflection:

The media’s effort to not hold the Obama administration accountable at all for Benghazi is clear. Gregory’s just doing his part.

    Meet the Press stop being relevant when it lost Tim Russert. Revolving door and chair of political hacks will not bring back fair minded, free thinking viewers.

    • Richard Wayne

      MTP was much better with Russert, but wasn’t Russert starting to go down the far left MSNBC off ramp before he died?

    • Scott Carroll

      Amen to that. Russert was old school. He knew he leaned left, you knew he leaned left, and he knew you knew he leaned left. He didn’t try to be obtuse about it, he just busted his butt to ask tough questions of EVERYBODY.

      It’s not rocket surgery to be a fair journalist. Just ask yourself before every interview “What questions is this guy praying I don’t ask?” Then ask those questions. Rinse. Repeat.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Excuse the tin-foil hat, here… but I always thought it a bit suspicious that Tim died before he could interview Obama.

  • Gloves Donahue, Jr.

    He doesn’t,John.

    His job is to defend and cover for Obama.

    Somewhere, Tim Russert is throwing up at what MTP has become.

    • TugboatPhil

      And even worse, he wants to make sure the dumbed down voters don’t care either.

  • Susan Reaney

    The question now is not if David Gregory care if 4 American’s died in Benghazi or not, the question now is WHY didn’t he answer the question at all?

  • Tim

    Gregory is a pathetic hack just like the rest of the MSM. If Bush was still president Benghazi would still be headline news every night and they’d all be calling for his impeachment.

    • Jim Russell

      “Cover-up of what?” I’ll ans Gregory’s stupid question: Cover-up of a terrorist attack by claiming it a demonstration in order to get past reelection.

      Obama’s political self-interest scraficed 4 selfless public servants, unlike himself. Beyond disgraceful…and media, David Gregory etal, were and still are willing partisapants.

      • catb55

        It is the COVER-UP that takes people down … look at Watergate .. a third rate burglary … but the cover-up was huge. Gregory and others in the MSM who have not only ignored but helped block any questions and answers .. need to be charged as conspirators.

        • SJ’s Dad

          ^X1M!!! Excellent post! . . . Anyone die in Watergate? . . . Exactly!!!!

      • David

        Exactly. Obama lied and continues to lie about everything. Republicans should be shouting this out everyday, but they still think somewhere, sometime OBlamer will recover his sanity. Don’t count on it. This Pretender in Chief proves everyday that he is without any moral bearings.

    Would there be a cover up if what was covered up was known?
    Rather stupid there Davey.

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    $20 bucks says Gregory pulls a Peirs Morgan, Costanza “I should have said Jerk Store” on twitter in a few days with something along the lines of, “Do you not care about children murdered by assaulty guns?”

    And since Conservatives (even RINOs like McCain) aren’t allowed to legitimately care about things, twitter will step in, make a fool of Gregory, and his, inane, cultish, lazy brained, untalented ass (haven eaten all the shrimp) will be forced to yelling at all of us, “Well, I slept with your wife!”

    And like Costaza, we’ll all laugh (not with, but) at Gregory.

  • Steve_J

    #davidgregorycoverup What were the names of the four Americans killed in the Benghazi terrorist attack?

  • Maxx

    Gregory would be interested in Benghazi only if the diplomats had been killed by an AR-15.

  • Scott

    @davidgregory is the best example of how far up Obama’s ass the MSM is.

  • Gallatin

    Let’s start with why were we told that it was a youtube video?

  • John Clement

    Question for Gregory: Since you have a good visual, how many polyps does Obama have up there?

    • David


  • Kevin Michael Groeger

    The Mainstream Media needs to be re-Christened, “The Ministry of Truth Media”. What they cannot coverup or ignore,they will rewrite, or write out of history….

  • Bowdoin81

    David Gregory is a courtier, not a journalist.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      I think a better term would be: Bootlicker, lackey, lickspittle….

  • Grace656

    Bravo. Conservatives need to turn the tables during these interviews and question the job the journalists are doing. Obviously, they’ve abandoned true investigation, and have moved to only supporting the administration on every front. Call them out!

  • rivers

    David Gregory yelling at McCain for wanting simple answers to basic questions. Surreal. Not even a pretense of impartiality, just all in for their guy. Obama could drop a nuclear bomb anywhere in the world and the media would cover and carry for him. Just mindboggling mindlessness.

  • grais

    “Coverup of what?”
    Gregory should be asking exactly that, but of the most transparent administration ever in the whole history of the whole wide world; he shouldn’t be asking McCain.

  • Heather_A

    I don’t always like John McCain, but when I do, it’s because he asked a question that was on all our minds.


  • InformNow

    Gregory is just doing his part as a member of the “Legitimate Media” by being a mouthpiece for Obama.

  • Dawn9476

    I still want to know why over 4,000 soldiers died in Iraq.

    • bo1921

      You don’t care about the ones in Afghanistan? You know, the WAR obama said we needed to focus on. How many have died there since the dumb one took the WH? Do you care? Leaving it out of your post tells me you don’t. Pi*s off.

    • David

      Dawn, 1) the world is rid of one of the most brutal dictators in recent history. 2) Those who deny Hussein harbored weapons of mass are delusional. Ask the Kurds about such weapons. 3) We had the potential of establishing some sort of positive relationship and OBlamer threw it all away. 4) I know many who served in Iraq and all felt that Bush was doing the right things. When Obama came to office, all was lost.

  • lainer51

    If only Gregory would have the parents of the 4 dead victims on and ask them “cover up of what?” — it might even help that pathetic show’s ratings.

  • bo1921

    He doesn’t care, John. He only cares about HIS lordy and saviorite – the dumb one in the WH. That’s all that matters.

  • TonyMitch

    McCain do you not care that 23 million American citizens are out of work. Yet, you still are pushing keeping illegals in america nad even citizenship. You have always been and always will be a hypocrit.

  • sfcmac

    Gregory figures Obama doesn’t care, so why should he?
