CNN Asks Benghazi Father to Criticize Trump. He Attacks Hillary Instead
Since the September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya, several Gold Star families have told of Hillary Clinton's dishonesty, incompetence, and lack of character.
But their voices have largely been ignored by the mainstream media.
When Patricia Smith -- the mother of Benghazi hero Sean Smith -- gave an emotional speech blaming Hillary for the death of her son at the Republican National Convention, the media yawned. Worse, Politifact actually felt the need to fact-check her assertions about what Hillary Clinton told her -- as if they could prove or disprove what was said in a private conversation.
However, when Khizr Khan, father of slain U.S. Army Captain Humayun Khan, excoriated Donald Trump at the Democratic National Convention, the media went wild. They continued focusing on Trump when he later criticized the Khan family by suggesting Khan's wife had not been allowed to speak because she was Muslim.
CNN has led the stampede to shame Trump. On August 1, they ran a story about the VFW slamming Trump, and about Gold Star families demanding an apology from Trump.
On Tuesday, CNN invited Charles Woods, father of U.S. Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods on the air. Host Carol Costello initially gave Woods some airtime to talk about Clinton, but she soon focused on Trump's feud with Khizr Khan, repeatedly asking Woods if Trump should apologize.
Woods turned the tables on her:
I know who should apologize. And that would be Hillary Clinton, for lying to the American families who lost their loved ones as well as to the American public.
