Friedersdorf, who recently concluded the Benghazi incident is "worth investigating after all," writes:
Conservatives believe the MSM has largely ignored the Benghazi story even as conservative outlets diligently report it out. This perception has little grounding in reality. That isn't to say that no conservative criticism of Benghazi coverage has been accurate. As on any subject, there are many flawed stories put out there by outlets right, left, and center. But the conservative claim that "the MSM" has ignored the story is a mass delusion.
Politico's Dylan Byers adds that "there is a guilty-until-proven-innocent approach among those who fashion themselves as "anti-MSM," which can cloud the evidence-gathering process."
