Hillary Clinton aide tells reporter to 'f**k off' for daring to ask about Benghazi scandal; Where is media pearl-clutching?

It really needs to be read to be believed.

Philippe Reines, long-time Hillary Clinton aide and spokesman, totally flipped out when a reporter dared to question the State Department’s crumbling Benghazi narrative.

The email exchange started when Michael Hastings with BuzzFeed asked Mr. Reines about Ambassador Steven’s journal, which was taken by CNN from the scene. CNN admitted that they disgracefully concealed this evidence in order to scour it first for “scoops,” as Twitchy reported.

Over this weekend, Mr. Reines had blasted CNN while covering for the State Department’s horrendous handling of what happened when four Americans died during the consulate attack in Libya. Reines didn’t care for the fact that Hastings actually dared to question the State Department’s competence and the email exchange quickly deteriorated, once Hastings called out Reines for his attempted spin.

More from Mr. Hastings’ report:

Why don’t you give answers that aren’t bullshit for a change?

How’s that for a non-bullshit response?
Now that we’ve gotten that out of our systems, have a good day.
And by good day, I mean Fuck Off

Wow.

Reines then told Hastings to have a good life and that he’d be designated as junk mail.

Twitter was soon buzzing over the story.

Twitter user Jeff Sharlet then weighed in with his own experiences with the oh-so-classy Reines.

Worse than those icky “right wingers!” Egads! Still, clearly he’s not out to “get” Hillary Clinton.

That’s saying something!

Others root for injuries, since BuzzFeed has a history of bias and lapdoggery.

And, where is the media pearl-clutching? Will this be reported breathlessly?

And Twitter user Derek Hunter puts it all into a nutshell.

Bingo. Well, it was just a “bump in the road” and all.
