EUGENE, Ore. — More than 50 protesters flooded the entry of The Register-Guard building this weekend, demanding answers as to why they say the media hasn’t properly covered the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The group, made up of Lane County Republicans, the Oregon Tea Party, veterans and others, says the strike that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans was a coordinated terrorist attack that the Obama administration has yet to address in detail. They also complain that the media is being complicit with the lack of truth telling.
“For the last six days there has been almost no coverage of this. This is a huge scandal, with people that are dead, the questions haven’t been answered, so we’re wondering is this just lie after lie after lie trying to get past the election, or is this a cover up?” said John Kuzmanich, Oregon Tea Party Chairman.
Their effort stems from a national campaign through social media sites.
