The Benghazi fiasco and the ensuing cover-up by the Obama administration got minimal media play before yesterday's congressional hearing, and even with that hearing, the media are still hard at work with their excuse-making for the White House, NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell told Fox Business Network's Stuart Varney on Thursday morning's edition of the Fox Business Network program Varney & Co.
For example, "ABC, last night, Diane Sawyer interviewing Barack Obama, she interviewed him for four minutes, she asked him every question imaginable about his debate performance, she even invited him to say that Mitt Romney was a liar" but she spent "not one second" on Benghazi, the Media Research Center founder told Varney.

Varney opened the segment discussing the shocking revelation that one "large state" failed to submit its recent jobless numbers.
"How many reporters do you think tonight are going to report on the one state that didn't give its numbers? No one will touch that" because they "are advancing the exact same spin of the Obama administration," Bozell added.
To close out the segment, Varney asked for Bozell's prediction about what the media spin will be Friday morning, following Thursday evening's vice presidential debate. Bozell was unequivocal in his prediction that the media will insist that the Obama/Biden campaign is on the comeback:
[The media will say] Biden back, the Obama administration back.... What's going to be reported tomorrow morning is going to be, "The Obama team has its mojo back."
And guess what, it's going to happen, the exact same thing is going to happen in the next presidential debate, no matter what happens.... I'll bet anybody a million dollars right now.
