Muckraking Like a Boss

Seymour Hersh is profiled by the Guardian:

Don’t even get him started on the New York Times which, he says, spends “so much more time carrying water for Obama than I ever thought they would” – or the death of Osama bin Laden. “Nothing’s been done about that story, it’s one big lie, not one word of it is true,” he says of the dramatic US Navy Seals raid in 2011.

Hersh is writing a book about national security and has devoted a chapter to the bin Laden killing. He says a recent report put out by an “independent” Pakistani commission about life in the Abottabad compound in which Bin Laden was holed up would not stand up to scrutiny. “The Pakistanis put out a report, don’t get me going on it. Let’s put it this way, it was done with considerable American input. It’s a bullshit report,” he says hinting of revelations to come in his book.

The Obama administration lies systematically, he claims, yet none of the leviathans of American media, the TV networks or big print titles, challenge him.

“It’s pathetic, they are more than obsequious, they are afraid to pick on this guy [Obama],” he declares in an interview with the Guardian.

What Robin Roberts said.
Not one word of the Bin Laden story is true? So Osama is still alive? Hersh is a huckster, not a journalist. The proper response to Hersh isn't 'what is he saying?' but 'what is he selling?'. People go to Hersh with all kinds of crazee stuff, occasionally he hits paydirt, but even after the scurrilously false stories have been debunked, it seems like he still believes in them.

No, the theory is that Osama died years ago and the raid was a fake. No idea how wide and high the conspiracy is supposed to go.

Then again, there's Operation Fast & Furious and whatever happened in Benghazi, so --

This is my brain on an Obama administration.

I would believe a Lillian Hellman story before a Seymour Hersh story.
