    Leftist publication regurgitates intellectually bankrupt White House talking point

    In an article for leftist publication Salon.com, writer Arthur Goldwag characterizes the Benghazi cover-up as a “conspiracy theory” backed by nothing more than “faith,” a ludicrous assertion given the recent release of emails which proved a deliberate effort to mislead on behalf of the Obama administration.

    In a sophomoric piece entitled, Benghazi nuts, anti-vaxxers, birthers: Do they really buy their own nonsense?, Goldwag asks, “Why do people believe ridiculous things, in despite of all reason and proofs to the contrary?”

    One of those “ridiculous things” is the notion that there was a cover-up surrounding the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, which Goldwag labels a “conspiracy theory” backed by no evidence, comparing belief that the Obama administration lied about the incident to belief in the King James Bible.

    Goldwag goes on to equate believers in a Benghazi cover-up to those who supported Stalin’s mass starvation of millions of Russians in the 1930′s.

    Seems the shoe is on the other foot now. Well, why not? It worked so well for the neocons the dems are giving it go.

    What goes around comes around I reckon.

    There's less difference between liberals and conservatives everyday. It should be a good show to sit back and watch them call each other conpsiracy theorists.

    I think the writer's at Salon are probably very young and just haven't seen enough of the world to know how to write about it, let alone have a clue how it works outside of their whimsical wishes for how they'd like it to be and occasional first impressions.

    It is rather frightening that they do have a platform though. People who want to be journalists should really take themselves more seriously when starting out in their chosen field. Then again, might not much matter, considering the average modern reader...
