Trump has been calling out the mainstream media recently for trying to fix the upcoming election.
They have also been criticized by Congressman Trey Gowdy, who said they have helped Hillary get away from a number of crimes.
“Do you know why we were the last flag flying in Benghazi?” Gowdy asked. “Do you know why requests for additional security were denied? Do you know why an ambassador asking for more security days and weeks before he was murdered, and those requests went unheeded?”
“Do you know the origin of this mythology that it was spawned as a spontaneous reaction to a video?” he continued. “Do you know where that started?”
“In conclusion, Congress is supposed to provide oversight,” Gowdy argued. “The voters are supposed to provide oversight. And you (the media) are supposed to provide oversight. That’s why you have special liberties, and that’s why you have special protections.”
Gowdy then addressed the fact that both President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have shot down these claims.
“I am not surprised that the President of the United States called this a ‘phony scandal.’ I’m not surprised Secretary Clinton asked, ‘What difference does it make?’” Gowdy concluded. “I’m not even surprised that J. Comey said that Benghazi happened a long time ago. I’m just surprised at how many people bought it.”
