An event about the Benghazi attacks held at The Heritage Foundation on Monday sparked intense, but respectful, debate about the 2012 terrorist assault on the American consulate that left four dead.
But once again, the liberal media took the opportunity to unfairly characterize conservatives. The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank completely misrepresented what happened during a question-and-answer session during the event. He said the panelists rudely “attacked” and “pounced” on the questioner.
Milbank’s account was so incredible that others in the media leapt to Heritage’s defense. Politico, for example, pointed out that the video shows the panelists not mocking the questioner but thanking her. The facts just don’t support Milbank’s wild claims.
Watch video of the Q&A and see for yourself:
It’s precisely because the mainstream media has such bias that The Heritage Foundation started the Daily Signal: to expose the truth about what’s happening in America.
