Gutfeld on Benghazi: Media ‘Will Cover Up the Cover-Up of the Cover-Up’

As seen on The Five

Greg Gutfeld tonight remarked on the latest Benghazi information, which suggests that the White House pushed the narrative about a YouTube video.

Read background information below from

The documents obtained and released by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, included a Sept. 14, 2012, email from White House aide Ben Rhodes, an assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for strategic communications. 

The Rhodes email, with the subject line: "RE: PREP Call with Susan: Saturday at 4:00 pm ET," was sent to a dozen members of the administration's inner circle, including key members of the White House communications team such as Carney. 

In the email, Rhodes specifically draws attention to the anti-Islam Internet video, without distinguishing whether the Benghazi attack was different from protests elsewhere. 

The email lists the following two goals, among others: 

"To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy." 

"To reinforce the President and Administration's strength and steadiness in dealing with difficult challenges." 

“Can you blame the White House for the cover-up?" Gutfeld asked. "You can, but the media won’t care because they covered up the cover-up, and now, they will cover up the cover-up of the cover-up. This isn’t just Benghazi-gate, it’s Media-gate. They’re so good at concealing, they could put Revlon out of business.”
