    Watching and listening for news coverage on the Benghazi tragedy. You are missing out on a terrific story about hero Woods. I sincerely hope CBS/Scott Pelly will rise above what appears to be a deliberate attempt by major networks to keep Americans in the dark about such an important event. While major networks may want to protect the President and may want to not cover news that may reveal how incompetent the White House was in handling such an important aspect of National Security or Foreign Affairs, Americans have the right to know and reporters and networks have a responsibility to be fair, truthful and unbiased in reporting. A news blackout is not fair, not truthful and certainly is biased. I have a son that was in the Marine Corps and was in the Embassy Security Division, I am horrified that one of our Consulate or one of our Embassy’s would be over run and leadership would stand back and watch it happen. If the Bin Laden capture could be viewed in real time likewise, protecting and defending our Embassy’s could be done in real time. Please turn the corner, let the biased reporting of the Katie Couric days be behind CBS. I would love to be able to count on Scott Pelly reporting full accounts of major news events and leave protecting the President to the Secret Service. Please return to this tragic event and inform (truthfully) Americans on every aspect…..before the election!

    Sincerely
    Eva Hanson
