I'd also recommend this report by Jake Tapper (ABC News) about how Barack ignored a question on Libya today. In terms of why this important story isn't getting wall to wall coverage with various angles being explored non-stop, I would direct you to Erik Wemple (Washington Post) who attempts to address some of that:
Last Friday, Fox News came up with a conversation-driver. A piece under the byline of reporter Jennifer Griffin opened with these revelations:
Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. consulate and subsequent attack several hours later on the annex itself was denied by the CIA chain of command — who also told the CIA operators twice to “stand down” rather than help the ambassador’s team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11.
Ever since that story dropped, the Erik Wemple Blog has been following its Internet following. The story gained immediate traction in conservative media, with pickups by PJMedia, TheRightNewz, PatriotsforAmerica, among others. ABC News’s Jake Tapper wrote a post detailing just how President Obama managed to wiggle out of a question on the Fox News report in an Oct. 26 interview with a Denver TV station.
Yet the big guns of Beltway journalism have largely treated the Fox report with silence. This non-development hasn’t met with silence from the mainstream media’s critics. “ABC, CBS, NBC, The Washington Post, and the New York Times are so vested in the re-election of Barack Obama that they are deliberately spiking this huge story. It’s sickening,” says Media Research Center President Brent Bozell.
I think he's written a thoughtful analysis of one aspect (why a report on Fox didn't result in other coverage -- and I would add that could be coverage backing it up, shooting it down or saying we don't know). I think this is probably one of the best pieces of media criticism that I've seen in the media.
