Democratic Pollster Caddell: Liberal Media Has Become a Threat to America By Not Reporting Truth on Benghazi (Video)

Liberal pollster Pat Caddell lashed out at the liberal media for burying the Obama administration’s Benghazi lies and scandal.
Caddell says the mainstream media has “become a threat to American democracy.”
Caddel was on with Judge Jeanine on Saturday night.

Rush Limbaugh Show has the transcript:

CADDELL: I am appalled right now. This White House, this president, this vice president, the secretary of state, all of them are willing apparently to dishonor themselves and this country for the cheap prospect of getting reelected, willing to cover up and lie, and the worst thing is, the very people who are supposed to protect the American people and the truth, the leading mainstream media, they have become a threat, a fundamental threat to American democracy and the enemies of the American people. What I saw with Ty Woods’ father and family and the outrage I feel for my country and the shame that these people have no honor, and when will people finally say it? Cover-up is too nice a word, and the media is the one that it’s worse on.

RUSH: Pat Caddell, talking about the media. They’ve become a threat, a fundamental threat to American democracy. They are the enemies of the American people. You shoulda seen him. He was practically crying, describing what he had seen with Tyrone Woods’ father and family, the outrage he feels for his country. He wasn’t finished.

CADDELL: This president didn’t care enough to stay in the White House and, quote, “find out what was going on” the next day. Now I know why he didn’t meet with his national security adviser. And why he got on a plane and went to a fundraiser, an act, if any president, Democrat or Republican, prior to this had done while the consulate was smoldering, would have been crucified. I’ve said it. This is — I’ll tell you, I’m so personally — not politically, but personally nauseated by this.

    It shows:

    Pat Caddell is as liberal as David Brock is conservative.

  • Oliver

    Caddell’s rant even left Coulter speechless (that’s a first!)

    O’Reilly even tweeted about it so expect to see Caddell on the Factor soon.

    It was a very powerful rant, and absolutely spot on. Too bad someone doesn’t do this in a Journalism class or somewhere where today’s, ahem, “Journalists” are all gathered in a group.

    Makes you wonder how those MSM puppets sleep at night.

  • MicahStone

    I actually believe that d-cRAT pollster caddell has atoned for his sins in working for and helping THE SECOND WORST PRESIDENT IN AMERICAN HISTORY, carter. These days, caddell certainly seems like he’s trying to be honest and forthright in political matters. He now has my full respect.

  • American Woman

    Pat Caddell is an old-fashioned Democrat, and he is not part of the Fascist Cabal that controls that party and twisted it into the Socialist/Communist/ Islamic Fascist-endorsing group that still calls itself the Democrat Party.

    There is no longer anything democratic or liberal (in the old-fashioned sense of that word) about that which brands itself the Democrat Party. It seeks the demise of our country and our freedoms, it endorses socialism, communism, and Islamic Fascism.

    The Democrat Party is dead. Stick a fork in it; it is done and in fact burnt to a crisp.

    Come on over to the America-loving side, Pat.

  • How can any “journalist” be Liberal given what they have to support in the way of ideology and the people who advance it?

  • Oliver

    #1 – how reliable is that polling outfit? If it’s legit — that last swing state poll is VERY GOOD NEWS!

    Discussing Benghazi, Pat says the press has “been in the tank on this in a way I’ve never seen… I am appalled right now. This White House, this President, this Vice President, this Secretary of State, all of them, are willing apparently to dishonor themselves and this country for the cheap prospect of getting reelected… willing to cover up and lie. The worst thing is the very people who are supposed to protect the American people with the truth – the leading mainstream media… they have become a threat, a fundamental threat to American democracy and the enemies of the American people… these people have no honor… coverup is too nice of a word…”


  • CV1

    Politically, instead of playing to “win” the election by sweeping in and saving the people in our consulate in Libya, Obama played “not to lose” by not doing anything in order to avoid a potentially bigger catastrpohe.

  • the democratic party-media complex has been a threat to the freedom of the american for almost fifty years. its how we got obama, he is their creation.

    hah, McCain is gearing up 48 days late for
    another 15 minutes of “mclame-fame.. 😡

    cannot stand these phonies much longer.. *sigh*

    Palin bought a house in John Mccain’s district in order to run for his Senate seat when he retires.

    I think in the next four or five days that the Left will tip us off to the right answer depending on how crazy they start behaving and how many resources are dumped into Michigan and Pennsylvania to hold their firewall there.

  • DomesticGoddess

    Why isn’t he “politically” nauseated by it?

  • Callipygian1

    A buck-toothed grinning idiot and his dumber brother could have determined what exactly happened in Benghazi by now, 6 1/2 weeks later. It’s evident that stonewalling is the game plan, and will continue until well after the election.

    When even a Democrat can see that the media is the enemy and yet how many people who read these sites and call themselves Conservatives continue to pay a cable bill every month? Thus supporting that very enemy. Cancel your cable. Do it now.

  • bigkahuna

    I hope President Romney boycotts MSM for interviews and gives them all to Fox news and Talk Radio.

    Then let them squirm and have fun trying to report on Romneys stepping on a crack and breaking his mothers back.

    As far as I’m concerned, if 1) Obama loses and 2) The republicans lose their enthusiasm for investigating Benghazi, the house republicans have also sold out this country and are little better than the MSM. We have to deal with this treason once and for all. If we let this fast and lose behavior with our national security go unpunished, we will see it again.

  • Iron Maiden

    Good point, ruready – God knows we’re not going to get ANYTHING done as long as weepy Boehner is in control.

  • Granny

    #22 – Please take a course in US Government. The House Republicans are NOT to blame. They’ve been passing budgets, cutting the deficit, and so forth. Unfortunately, no budget or bill can become law without also being passed by the US Senate and Harry Reid simply refuses to allow any of it to come up for a vote. The person you want to look to for treason is Harry Reid.

  • TXPatriot

    #16 because personally is much deeper. Politically, eh. You can be upset and face another day, but when it becomes PERSONAL, that’s a different story.

  • ruready?

    Help me out, Granny. Maybe my knowlege of US governmen is waning. Who is it that impeaches a president?

  • paul52

    And all that is on LSM this eve. is Hurricane Sandy. A godsend for the puppets like Sawyer and her ilk.

  • JoyO

    I think most Americans who have heard the Benghazi story feel the same way as Caddell and Judge Jeanine. I think the word is getting out without the media coverage. And, with so many Americans having members of their families that have served in the military, they are really very angry. The media is working hard to protect Obama. By doing this, they are proving that they are becoming irrelevant due to their Progressive, Leftist biases.

  • retired military

    Obama’s last home is that the storm will disrupt Penn and Ohio votin4g so bad that they can figure out how many hundreds of thousands of votes they have to manufacture to try to win.

    Personally I dont think Obama will get more than 220 EV.

  • Oliver

    #28 – sadly, they are not “irrelevant”. If nobody watched them it wouldn’t matter, but many people still get the majority of their “news” from the MSM. My ‘very political’ liberal friend doesn’t know who Eric Holder is, and knows almost ZIP about Fast & Furious.

    That’s what makes the MSM’s behavior almost criminal.

    No need to scratch your head and wonder why. It is very simple. The enemy is in the white house. The enemy has control of the media. The enemy has control of our schools. So much for winning the cold war. Add to that a middle east religion taking advantage of our surrender to political correctness. Those are the facts.

    ruready? commented:

    Impeachment is not conviction, it is akin to an indictment from a grand jury. The House renders judgement whether or not there is enough evidence for a Senate trial, that is impeachment.

    So far no President has ever been convicted by a Senate trial, both impeached presidents (Johnson-1868 and Clinton-1998) have been acquitted.

    If I have typed this once this week I’ve typed it 50 times,but here you go, AGAIN:


    1. The House of Representatives determines charges and writes a Bill of Impeachment

    2. The Senate (under the control of Harry Reid at the minute) holds the actual trial at which guilt or innocence is determined.

    I assume that the problem with even bothering to attempt impeachment is readily apparent, since Harry Reid – Democrat – has not even allowed the annual budget mandated by law to come before the Senate since the day Obama took office.

    This will continue as long as the media bears no consequence. They care nothing about finances; Obama and the progressives will have the state own if need be. They love Big Bird, NPR and PBS.

    Has anyone thought about how strange it is that private citizens that work for companies that other people may have shares of stock in can be sentenced to jail for 20 years for either reporting false news about the company’s financials, or failing to report material news? How is it that some small bulletin board stock CFO and CEO can go to jail for a decade because they failed to disclose a couple million dollars of liabilities, while journalists, editors and publishers in the media can lie or neglect to report items that affect the country as a whole and bear no consequence? Why is it a CEO, who knows nothing about major financial misconduct in her or his company, still has to attest to the truth of their financial report, but the publisher of the New York Times can feign ignorance when his operation lies and functions as a propaganda wing for a national progressive socialist movement?

  • Sandy

    Pat Caddell is a decent man who would be so no matter what party he belonged to. He is owned by no one and speaks from his heart. Like him I am shattered by what’s happened to the party I identified with and loved all my life and the media I trusted. To everything there is a season and their season is almost over. I trust the Republicans will be better caretakers of this magnificent nation and that we will welcome all the Dems who will be voting for Mitt and who love this country more than any party affiliation.

  • Flintstone F.

    Dominant Liberal Establishment (corrupt) Mass Media.

    They believe their own lies and thus will stop at nothing to stop the evil Republicans and with liberals, the ends always justify the means.

    To be honest, I’m a little shocked myself at the absolute lack of concern on the part of the collective “news” media, for our ambassador and a president with more excuses than OJ.


    #5 American Woman knows the name of a party (good post too).


    The Democratic pollster? What about the undemocratic pollster? Oh I see, the word democratic is capitalized. As if that makes it ok.

    Not a gripe at GP but certainly am going to stand my ground on the incorrect use of the word democratic. It’s not a political party. The party is the Democrat party. The people are Democrats. The Republican party has Republicans.

    The sentence “The Democratic party lost the election,” implies the party winning the election was not democratic.

    Is the Republican party democratic? Yes.

    Is the Democrat party democratic? Um, probably but they’re all certifiably insane.

    Is the “Democratic” party Republican? No. They are part of a republic that constitutes part of the structure for our society. They are also part of the democratic process another structural aspect of our society from which Democrats derive their party name, Democrat.

    By the way Jim,

    I see GDP posted everywhere the same way you did it here.

    Caddell, an honest democrat. I didn’t know there were any.

    The Right Question Is – “Why?”

    [We don’t need the president to tell people to stay indoors, stock up
    on bottled water, make sure we have plenty of batteries and canned
    food on hand, and to follow the instructions of emergency workers.
    That’s the job of the mayors and governors of the states in the path
    of the Superstorm Sandy.

    What we need from Obama we will never get. We need him to tell
    us why he allowed Libyan Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean
    Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty to die.


    I contend that every investigation and search for truth must begin
    with the question, “Why was Stevens allowed to die and why were
    Smith, Woods and Doherty set up to be collateral damage?”

    If Stevens wasn’t placed in a situation to die then why wasn’t he pulled out when the British pulled their people? Why did Obama and Clinton ignore warnings issued by Israel and the Libyan interim president? Why were the personal requests by Stevens, pleading for help, ignored? Since when does the official representative of the president of The United States drive around in a hot zone in what amounts to the same SUV you and I drive? Why wasn’t he in a secure vehicle and accompanied by Marines?

    There was no question but that Smith, Woods and Doherty were going
    to be killed regardless of whether or not they stood down as ordered.
    There was no way any of the four were getting out alive.

    Obama, Biden, and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta were huddled in
    Obama’s office approximately 90 minutes after the attack began. There
    were two predator drones sending real-time live feeds back to anyone
    with a computer and a mid-range security clearance. Are we really
    supposed to believe they weren’t watching those men die?

    I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but I know government, and I know
    military. And seeing Obama sprint to the cameras and teleprompters
    to tell us that which our mayors and governors are in office to do
    is not presidential.

    It is the exaggerated behavior of a man watching his
    presidency being flushed down the toilets of history.]

    Amen to that..


  • lessthantolerant

    Cadell speaks the truth and I hope American remember the traitorous acts of the media, find their homes and burn them to the ground, harrass them out of America.

  • Chris W.

    Hey Pat, I’m sure you weren’t upset during your pollster days when the lib MSM cooked polls in your favor. You encouraged their behavior for years and you’re just now realizing that media bias is a bad idea?

    Go crawl back into whatever hole you came out of. Too little, too late.

    This guy isn’t a liberal and he isn’t a democrat. He left the party in 1988. But then I don’t expect much from people who watch the liar news station – Fox.

  • Glojean

    Losing viewers hasn’t affected network news. They blame loss of viewership on one of the hosts. How about we don’t like your propaganda! This is America and we should be able to turn on our news and hear what is really happening! With Sandy, Benghazi, Fast & Furious, Solyndra or Acorn, they cover up, don’t report or lie. There might be one way we can turn them into true honest journalists. If we don’t watch ANYTHING on their networks, they will lose advertising, therefore they will lose money and that is the only thing they understand. I say boycott networks, until they realize we are not going to put up with it anymore!
