The problem is that while Congressional Republicans are sure that there's something scandalous about Benghazi, they've had little luck convincing anyone other than Fox News and its viewers.

BOSTON -- Lawyers for a man charged with lying to investigators after the Boston Marathon bombings are asking a federal judge to release him from jail, saying he had nothing to do with the deadly bombings and isn't a flight risk.

Penis scientist Rush Limbaugh is reportedly upset with executives at his flagship station WABC and its parent company, Cumulus. He's so mad, in fact, that's he's reportedly threatening to leave the company. Why? Because Lew Dickey, Cumulus's CEO, is (probably correctly) blaming Limbaugh's “slut” comments last year for declining ad revenue at the company
Several major advertisers dropped support for Limbaugh after the “slut” incident, but Limbaugh and a source who spoke with the Daily News said the show's earnings were “very minimally impacted in the short term.”
Politico, however, notes that Dicky, on an August 2012 earnings call. said Cumulus's top three stations lost $5.5 million. Some of those losses, Dickey said, were because of the boycotts agains Limbaugh. In a March 2013 earnings call, Dickey said the company was still suffering because of the comments, blaming them for roughly a third of the company's revenue losses.

Why is it that none of the disturbed and hate-filled foodstamp and welfare liberals, who take or steal guns, then go and kill movie-goers, children in schools, and Bill Ayers types bomb public places has never been identified as a conservative, independent or a NRA member?

Or, there is this libtard:

"The monstrous abortion trial the media don’t want you to know about"

"When the Newtown shooting took the lives of 20 children, the nation was justifiably horrified. Journalists reported round the clock on ways to change public policy to prevent another shooting. But when seven children and a mother died in a Philadelphia abortion clinic dubbed a “house of horrors,” the major media couldn’t have cared less."

---------> Nov 2011

The flag, complete with Arabic script reading "there is no God but Allah" and full moon underneath, was seen flying above the Benghazi courthouse building, considered to be the seat of the revolution, according to the news website Vice.com .

The flag was said to be flying over the building alongside the Libyan national flag but the National Transitional Council has denied that it was responsible.

Vice.com also reported that Islamists had been seen driving around the city's streets, waving the Al Qaeda flag from their cars and shouting "Islamiya, Islamiya! No East, nor West".

The revelation came just days after it emerged that rebels in Libya have imposed Sharia law in the some parts of country since seizing power.

Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, chairman of the National Transitional Council, said Islamic Sharia law would be the "basic source" of legislation in free Libya.

In case Duh A Vey can't see past the Big, black flag picture, worth a few k words.

“Gosnell is charged with killing seven babies born alive, along with Karnamaya Mongar a newly-arrived, 41-year-old refugee from Bhutan. Prosecutors say Gosnell's staff gave the 90-pound woman a lethal dose of anesthesia and painkillers during a 2009 abortion,” according to the Associated Press.

ABC has never carried that story. Not once. Neither has NBC. CBS did … back in 2011 when Gosnell was first arrested. The rest of the media landscape is an equal travesty. CNN did one story on it in 2013, even though the trial has been going on for more than three weeks. Fox has covered it more than most of its TV kin, but it has surprisingly not done a lot

The trial of an Iowa teen accused of attempting to rape his mother and then shooting her dead began Wednesday with prosecutors playing a chilling 911 call.

Noah Crooks, now 14, can be heard on the March 24 call telling a dispatcher with the Mitchell County Sheriff's Department that he shot his mother, 37-year-old Gretchen Crooks, almost 20 times with a .22-caliber hunting rifle and he doesn't know why he did it, the Globe Gazette reports.

A Minnesota judge dismissed a lawsuit on Thursday evening filed in November 2012 by an anti-choice couple “on behalf” of Minnesota taxpayers that sought to eliminate all state insurance coverage of abortion services.

The order, issued by District Court Judge Kathleen R. Gearin, found that Minnesota’s case law on this is actually quite strong. In a 1995 lawsuit, Doe v. Gomez, the Minnesota Supreme Court struck down a ban on state funding of abortion, ruling that that so long as Minnesota funded pregnancy care, it could not refuse to fund care related to “therapeutic abortion.”

Center for Reproductive Rights litigation director, Julie Rikelman, told Raw Story:“It’s a great ruling. It’s a great victory for poor women in Minnesota.… She said that the state has been doing exactly what it’s supposed to under the constitution by paying for these medically necessary procedures that poor women need and that she was dismissing the plaintiffs’ case because there was no reason to undo what the Minnesota Supreme Court had so carefully done.”
