So much for the 1st Amendment and freedom of the press! We now have official confirmation that the State Department’s biggest concern after the terrorist attack at the American embassy in Benghazi, Libya was Fox News’ truthful reporting on the subject. Fox wasn’t buying the weak explanation of a YouTube video being the cause of the attacks, which directly contradicted the talking points repeated by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and current National Security Advisor Susan Rice.

Although the State Department has released tens of thousands of pages of documents to the House committee investigating the Benghazi attack and Obama administration public position statements about it after the fact, Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) says the giant docs are just a sneaky way to hide more incriminating information.

On the copy of the email provided to congressional investigators, almost all the names of the email’s recipients had been redacted by the State Department. However, on the copy provided to conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, the names were NOT redacted and indicate that senior level administration officials were part of the media damage control efforts. And Fox News was the Obama administration’s biggest concern. “>Watch the report (above) to see just how serious this is.
