[Benghazi] was reported on extensively. You're just upset that more wasn't made of it politically.
You seems like a nice person. I am going to think the best of you and assume you are being intentionally obtuse.

You don't seem like a nice person. Instead of addressing my argument, you call me obtuse. The Benghazi story was not ignored. Far from it. Obama's handling of it was not ignored. You're disappointed that more was not made of it politically.

When are we going to have newsrooms that look more like America?
For some reason I'm sure you're not complaining that newsrooms employ too few blacks, Hispanics or working-class people.
No. I am not a racist.

I did not say you were. I didn't even insinuate it. If newsrooms don't reflect the demographics of America, it's mainly because they're populated by middle- and upper-class people, and have disproportionately fewer Asians, blacks and Hispanics than the general population. The biggest newspaper in the country is The Wall Street Journal, which has a conservative bent. The most-watched cable news network is Fox, which is practically a part of the GOP. The notion that the news media is biased against conservatives is a self-serving right-wing myth.
