Ben Swann exemplifies journalistic integrity.

Others could take some lessons from this courageous young man.

Want to know more about how CNN lies?

Well, get this!

Last night I just barely finished watching an Alex Jones interview with Amber Lyon (this interview was yesterday) a Journalist whistle-blower who was forced to leave CNN because she refused to insert propaganda pieces into her news findings. While she was in Bahrain she found out a ton of information on horrible atrocities that government was doing with their citizens while CNN wanted to whitewash that government (because of it's strategic location on the Gulf of Hormuz and it's importance on the upcoming war with Iran). Also CNN receives money from Bahrain (and other countries) to present a propaganda piece as "news" showing how rosy things are there. She also talks first hand on how Obama has caused a severe chilling effect among the CNN reporters and gets into specifics on that. She was forced out of CNN and later CNN threatened to cut her severance and health insurance (and CNN apparently followed through) if she wouldn't shut up. It's a mind blowing interview.

Ben

wish you had a 1 hr program every night.

Truth!

Here are 3 great quotes!

"Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either."
-Albert Einstein

"A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people."
-John F Kennedy

"If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything."
-Mark Twain

I keep getting "Video currently unavailable"

at the point where he mentions an international law being talked about regarding "blasphemy".

It must be on your end

I have watched the video all the way through again, and what you described didn't happen to me. You might have to just go on youtube and find another version of it. sorry about that.

Anybody have more information/confirmation about this?

So the government/media has been reporting that "US Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed at the US consulate in Benghazi"

... but the only US consulate in Libya is the embassy located in Tripoli. Wait... what? Are you serious?

According to NY Post:
http://www.nypost.com/p/news/international/fbi_still_not_all...

... "buildings set on fire at the US Embassy in Benghazi, Libya"

According to this government website (and Ben Swann's report):
http://libya.usembassy.gov/

... they are located in Tripoli

Hmmmm

Anybody can add a location to google maps though

It's just strange that the government websites don't list Benghazi as having a consulate.

The US embassy is in Tripoli... so it makes you wonder why our ambassador was even in Benghazi, and why did he stay? The embassy in Tripoli is a lot bigger and heavily defended. And considering they had received warning about the attack 24 hours prior... some of this just doesn't make sense that's all.

That is a Great Point of Mr. Swann

It is really interesting to me to watch the news reports coming out of Fox, CNN, MSNBC, AP, Reuters, etc (every single news organization) reporting that the US ambassador to Libya was killed in Benghazi when the ONLY US embassy or consulate in Libya is over 400 miles away on the other side of the Gulf of Sirte, in Tripoli.

Ben

You, my friend, are dropping some serious knowledge. Keep on preachin' on.

Go Ben!

Keep on giving us that reality check!

Pretty Amazing coverage!!!

Pretty Amazing coverage!!!

I've been suspicious of that Egyptian revolution since it began. At the time there were some posts here on DP referencing the Facebook site that ended up supposedly getting the whole thing rolling. interested, I became happy about the prospect of freedom for the Egyptian people and thought is was really exciting. I had to find out more and I began looking for info on Al Jezeera since it wasn't being adequately covered in our media. But I found the coverage on Al Jezeera was so eerily crafted like CNN. What's more, they kept playing this segment in their loop about the inner-workings of the master minds of the revolution...who were in upscale digs (for Egypt) with computers, office equipment and a group of insiders with well orchestrated plans...right down to how they were going to walk down particular streets to mobilize residents and pedestrians to join them...it seemed so CIA...particularly since all of it was being mini-documented with a professional camera crew- I mean, if they can gain access, why wasn't mubarak's thugs breaking down the door...ya gotta wonder. Then there was also, at around the same time, the odd disappearance of the guy who set up the website and these weird interviews he was having with the local news caster...he returned and hadn't been beaten or hurt...the whole thing just did not appear to be organic...the guy didn't live in Egypt and was employed by Google...I don't know the whole thing reeks. Nothing about what happens over there is to be believed.

Has all of history been crafted and cleansed? It has me wondering if we really have any more insight into any period of history, the present included, than we have of the caveman period.

Wow Ben,

I was waiting for this report. Let Truth prevail!
