#GuessTheBenghaziHeadline places bets on lapdog media spin

Twitchy already brought you a preview of what’s sure to be MSNBC’s coverage of today’s compelling whistleblower testimony on the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya. The hearings have since wrapped up for the day, and the journalists of the White House palace guard are busy trying to “frame the narrative” in just the right way for low-information voter consumption. Now’s your chance to place your bets on tomorrow’s New York Times coverage by playing #GuessTheBenghaziHeadline.

Hey, no cheating. That one was real.

Bonus points will be awarded for guessing the correct headline and page number. Put us down for A17.

      That sounds like the title of a “Where are they now?” special starring Bill Clinton.

      • Zanshi

        “Where are they now?” starring Bill Clinton? The answer is “not with Hillary.”

  • Anyone00

    Why guess? According to the Huffington Post: “Benghazi Hearing Reveals Incompetence, But No Cover-Up”
    Now if you excuse me, I just read some of the comment section of that story and need to take a shower.

      Is that an empty-chair metaphor … brilliant!

    Why would the press cover a local crime story that didn’t even happen in the US?

    Most people on this tweet are not Americans, or just waiting for Obama to chit on them before seeing the truth.

  • stellatruman

    It boggles my mind how people can not see what has happened here . God help me if I ever become blinded to the truth out of a misguided loyalty to a political party

    “What Difference at This Point Does It Make?”

  • stuckinIL4now

    The scumstreamers are as language challenged as Hillary. She said they had to find out what happened so they could “prevent” it from ever happening again. What she really meant was so they could “pretend” it never happened–again.

  • MyrmidoNOT

    Hmmm… Presidential Election HINGED on this Information…
    or Top Gubm’t Officials Caught in Massive Coverup…
    or deNOcrat Policy of Lying and Misleading UNCOVERED

    or Pre-Election Chicanery Assures the Deception…
    …ad nauseum… “Oh, look! Squirrel, it’s wearing a shiny collar!! So cute…”

    And we will never see this:

  • CHHR

    I can no longer come up with the strength it takes to joke about the reality this country faces… National Press Conference 3 + hour symposium today only more confirms why http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqtJrJ40Cio Extortion 17 to Benghazi to Obama. If anyone can listen to this without feeling any sense of dispair needs to go to theater… it’s time they face the horror they force our boys to endure for politics.

    • SpinMeNot

      If it wasn’t grossly inappropriate, I’d salute you.

      Well said.

  • salvagesalvage

    Oh wingnuts, there are so many actual things you can hit Obama on, this is not one of them.

    He’s really is lucky to have you idiots as his most vocal opposition.

    • SpinMeNot

      It is hard to hit a man that cowardly chose to go to bed rather than do his job. People that pathetic aren’t worth the effort.

      You on the other hand have just been promoted to the ranks of the Invincibly Ignorant.


      • salvagesalvage

        Yes, Obama should have put on his Green Lantern ring and flew to Benghazi to save them!

        What’s really funny here is everyone else understands what happened and how it’s only the terrorist’s fault so when you wingnuts gibber and howl about it you look really stupid.

        So, y’know, keep it up!

        • SpinMeNot

          No, he should have stayed up and in the situation room, it is called, “leading”. But then again, you wouldn’t understand leadership.

          Try some Preparation-H on that butt ache, you might be less grumpy.

          I was an SWO, and I was in some very bad spots in Vietnam. I never once worried that backup wasn’t on the way. CAS, Artillery, A mike-force, something.

          You are an pathetic little man. Keep bleating like the sheep you are. Don’t make goat sounds, the Jihadis have a hard-on when it comes to goats and your butt ache will just get worse.

          • salvagesalvage

            Now that is some awesome Wingnut gibberish right there!

            Keep it up, in your own way you helped get Obama elected.

          • SpinMeNot

            Are you capable of even discussing the points of contention? Do you deny that BHO went to bed rather than answering the “proverbial” 3am phone call? The one that Hillary failed to answer as well.
            No, what helped get Obama elected was voter apathy and a complicit media. Do you have any other straw man arguments to throw out?

          • lainer51

            keep it up, keep it up, keep it up… there we have exhausted that tired, boring verbiage… move on.

        • lainer51

          HA HA HA – you are so silly with YOUR wingnut gibber… like Barry would have the balls to save them. Have you seen him riding the girls bike, or bowling a 37? Guess not…. hard to see with head up arse.. so y’know, keep it up THERE!

    • MyrmidoNOT

      Since you are being so upfront and supportive:
      Please provide a ‘handful’ of the “…so many actual things…”
      …so our ‘thoughtful’ participants may have a meaningful discussion.

      We’re so lucky…to have you as a “supporter”…
      (…just trying to encourage the conversation…)
