    Default No Media Bias from the Administration? Think Again

    Presidents of ABC and CBS News Have Siblings Working at White House With Ties to Benghazi
    By Noel Sheppard | May 11, 2013 | 17:09

    "CBS News President David Rhodes and ABC News President Ben Sherwood, both of them have siblings that not only work at the White House, that not only work for President Obama, but they work at the NSC on foreign policy issues directly related to Benghazi."

    So stated political consultant and media commentator Richard Grenell on Saturday's Fox News Watch (video follows with transcript and commentary):

    RICHARD GRENELL: I think the media's becoming the story, let's face it. CBS News President David Rhodes and ABC News President Ben Sherwood, both of them have siblings that not only work at the White House, that not only work for President Obama, but they work at the NSC on foreign policy issues directly related to Benghazi. Let's call a spade a spade.
    Let's also show you why CNN did not go very far in covering these hearings because the CNN deputy bureau chief, Virginia Moseley, is married to Hillary Clinton’s deputy, Tom Nides. It is time for the media to start asking questions why are they not covering this. It's a family matter for some of them.
    JON SCOTT, HOST: So they don't want to bring embarrassment upon folks who, who they're close to?
    GRENELL: Who directly are related to this story. Absolutely. They're covering for them. There's no question about it.
    For the record, Ben Sherwood's sister, Dr. Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, is the Special Assistant to Barack Obama.

    Virginia Moseley's husband, Tom Nides, is the Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources.


    As for David Rhodes' brother Ben, he is Obama's Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communication.

    As ABCNews.com reported Friday, Rhodes was a key player in revising the White House's Benghazi talking points last September:

    In an email dated 9/14/12 at 9:34 p.m. — three days after the attack and two days before Ambassador Rice appeared on the Sunday shows – Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes wrote an email saying the State Department’s concerns needed to be addressed.
    “We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don’t want to undermine the FBI investigation. We thus will work through the talking points tomorrow morning at the Deputies Committee meeting.”
    After that meeting, which took place Saturday morning at the White House, the CIA drafted the final version of the talking points – deleting all references to al Qaeda and to the security warnings in Benghazi prior to the attack.
    Consider, too, that CBS News executives possibly including Rhodes have allegedly come down on their own investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson for "wading dangerously close to advocacy on" Benghazi.

    If Attkisson gets the boot, it could very well be with a foot attached to the brother of an Obama administration official directly involved in the cover-up.

    A family matter indeed.

    This kind of thing used to be shocking or at the very least surprising. Now? Whatever...
