Benghazi fever, all over again!

Republicans allege a cover-up by the Obama Administration with regard to the terrorist attack in Benghazi.

From a story in CNN:

"On Tuesday, a conservative group called Judicial Watch made public State Department documents it received in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. One of the documents was a previously undisclosed email on September 14, 2012, from Ben Rhodes, a national security official specializing in communications, that listed talking points for Rice about the protests that had erupted at U.S. embassies and compounds in the Muslim world. Among the goals listed in the Rhodes email was to 'underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.'"

The CNN story, titled,Benghazi -- government cover-up or right-wing conspiracy theory? examines whether this is really news.

Liberal sites such as the DailyKos assert this is all sizzle but no steak.

All this started from a story in USA Today, a story described by FAIR as "blowing smoke."

Meanwhile, right-wing media are going nuts:
