Nets Cover for Clinton, Ignore Discovery of 30 Benghazi E-mails

Hillary Clinton was caught in yet another lie about her e-mails Tuesday, following an announcement from the State Department that they discovered still more e-mails she failed to turn over. “And tonight, we have confirmation that at least some of the thousands of e-mails deleted and not turned over to the State Department dealt with the issue of Benghazi, Libya, clearly not falling into the category of personal e-mails,” remarked Fox News’ Bret Baier. And despite this, all of the “Big Three” networks failed to mention it at all on their evening programs.

“Hillary Clinton has said consistently that she turned over all her government e-mails,” elaborated Chief Intelligence Correspondent Catherine Herridge, “But tonight, the State Department is confirming about 30 records, that may be related to the 2012 terrorist attack, are among the thousands recovered by the FBI from Clinton's server.”

According to The Hill, “The agency has committed to releasing the newly uncovered documents under a series of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests from the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, but first it must weigh whether the emails are personal or work-related.” The Hill also noted that it is possible for some of the e-mails to be duplicates that have been previously released. The 30 e-mails are a part of the roughly 14,900 recently recovered by the FBI.

Instead of reporting this damaging news about Clinton, the nets chose to keep the focus squarely on Trump. Both CBS and NBC ran reports discussing a controversial cartoon of Clinton in blackface tweeted out by a Trump campaign surrogate. While ABC ran a whole report on Trump’s shifting immigration policy and a brief about President Barack Obama commuting the sentences of 111 nonviolent drug offenders. 

In addition, Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo also covered for Clinton and failed to report the e-mail discovery. Univision managed to hide the news behind wall-to-wall coverage of the death of Juan Gabriel, a Mexican musical legend.

BRET BAIER: And tonight, we have confirmation that at least some of the thousands of e-mails deleted and not turned over to the State Department dealt with the issue of Benghazi, Libya, clearly not falling into the category of personal e-mails. Chief Intelligence Correspondent Catherine Herridge joins us now with new developments, Catherine?

CATHERINE HERRIDGE: Thank you, Bret. Hillary Clinton has said consistently that she turned over all her government e-mails. But tonight, the State Department is confirming about 30 records, that may be related to the 2012 terrorist attack, are among the thousands recovered by the FBI from Clinton's server. The department is working to confirm the exact number and whether any are duplicates. And already posted online as more records from the FBI become public.
