Dereliction of Duty

It's been six weeks since the attack on the consulate at Benghazi and the president has still not held a press conference to answer questions.  

The "dereliction of duty" from the title of this post refers not to the president (although I do believe he's not doing his duty), but to the press.  It's a journalist's job to ask tough questions and get to the bottom of things.  Yet, when Brian Williams interviewed President Obama, he didn't ask any hard questions or follow-up queries.  Why?

It's obvious that we no longer have a press corps interested in doing anything other than getting Obama re-elected.  I just heard Geraldo Rivera on The O'Reilly Factor asking why Mitt Romney hasn't asked the president questions about Benghazi.  The answer to that, Geraldo, is that it isn't his job to do so!!  It IS the job of "journalists" to do it and clearly they either don't understand their job description or they have their heads so far up Obama's butt that they can't see daylight. Either way, the American people are the losers here.
