The definition of propaganda by the Merriam-Webster dictionary is,” ideas or statements that are often false or exaggerated and that are spread in order to help a cause, a political leader, a government, etc.”.
The New York Times is reminding us of how propaganda today is used to push a false narrative in order to help President Barack Obama appear as if he was and is correct in his direct decision that sealed the fate of four Americans to their deaths.
The Times, in their so called “Investigative Project A Deadly Mix In Benghazi by David Kirkpatrick, seeks to justify the terrorist attack on our embassy as a “spontaneous reaction” to a youtube video (as seen by Susan Rice’s talking points) committed by protesters instead of terrorists.
As merely propaganda, the Times attributes a youtube video as a catalyst and literally distorts the reality in a way that fits the President’s narrative. The narrative being, as an Obama official so eloquently put it in April of 2012, ““The War on Terror is over”.
The “Investigative Report” cites nothing in regards to credible evidence in their examination of what truly happened in Benghazi, Libya on September 11th, 2012. You can read their entire report by clicking Here. As I am not going into depth over their report, I’m left to ask but one simple question: Where’s the truth?
That is the message I’m trying to confide in Americans today. The message that propaganda is being spewed by a controlled and spiteful media by using the latest stunt by the NYT as the most recent example. If you’ve read the report I’d advise you to seriously start questioning the ones who are suppose to be questioning the actions of the President of the United States of America.
By looking at the sources the “journalist’s” use to justify their claims, you can see how propaganda in the press today is setting the example for the definition of propaganda tomorrow that is exacerbated when reports such as these are taken to be the truth.
