‘If Benghazi is such a big earth shaking story, why did CBS News have transcript deleted’?
‘According to Think Progress, “CBS deleted the story and transcript from its website and searching the Lexis Nexis database will yield no results for a transcript of the report — that’s because, according Lexis Nexis, both the introduction to the story and the report itself have been “deleted at the request of CBS News due to legal or copyright reasons.”
‘We also know now, thanks to a lengthy piece in New York Magazine which Republican was behind Logan’s 60 Minutes story’:
“Benghazi had been thoroughly politicized from the beginning”.
“But rather than steering clear of the political battle, Logan headed right toward it, consulting with Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, a strong critic of the administration’s handling of the incident whom she’d met once in Afghanistan”.
“I really didn’t know her until she started doing this piece on Benghazi,” he told me”.
“The two met two or three times to talk about the Libya attack, with Graham telling Logan that from his point of view, it was “a fair thing to say” that there was a “build-up of Al Qaeda types” in the area—a major talking point for the right in arguments that the Obama White House tried covering up alleged terrorist links”.
‘The 60 Minutes piece along with Jon Karl’s Benghazi emails for ABC News were both examples of Republicans trying to turn a false story into a legitimate news piece through media manipulation’.

‘8 out of the 10 most common jobs in the nation have decreased in value. The problem is especially significant today, considering that one-fifth of total U.S. employment comprises the 10 most common occupations of 2013′.
‘A new Washington Post report reveals how the value of full-time work in the United States has declined – a trend that has ramifications for Americans and the overall economy’.
‘Using employment data from 1999 and 2013, the Post’s Pam Tobey demonstrates how the nation’s 10 most common jobs – 9 of which also constituted the top 10 jobs in 1999 – now offer pay significantly reduced from 14 years ago’.
‘Despite higher numbers of employees in 9 of the top 10 occupational fields, as exhibited in the below chart, workers were paid significantly less in 2013 than in 1999’.
So in the ‘free market, when there are more employees, the wage is suppose to go up….just ask Rand Paul :
‘In 2013, just as in 1999, the two most common occupations in the United States were retail sales and cashier jobs, respectively’.
‘Fourteen years ago, however, pay – adjusted to meet 2013 inflation rates – for 3.37 million retail salespeople and 3.16 million cashiers was significantly higher: $26,861 and $21,380, respectively’.
‘Additionally, in 2013, “food preparation and service workers” – including fast-food workers – constituted the third most common occupation in the nation, with 3.02 million workers. In 1999, it was the ninth most common job, with only 1.95 million workers’.
‘Registered nurses made, on average, $68,910 a year. Restaurant workers made $20,880 a year’.
Please, Please PLEASE get Mitt to run again.
Democrats will PAY you to get him to run…..
‘Republicans are so desperate for a candidate that they starting a movement to draft Mitt Romney to run again in 2016’.
‘The Deseret News has the details’:
“A booth at the recent state GOP convention appeared to explain the status of the “Draft Mitt” movement in Utah — an empty table in front of a pile of signs encouraging a Romney presidential run in 2016 adorned with a few American flags”.
‘The rumors of third Mitt Romney run for the presidency have been picking up steam for a while. Last week, CBS News’ Bob Schieffer reported that Romney would consider running again in 2016 if Jeb Bush doesn’t run’.
