What's going on at CBS?

Until three weeks ago, I probably hadn't watched a 60 minutes in 10 years. But they've actually had a couple of good segments.

Tonight was a segment on Benghazi, I told the Lovely Mrs. Gekko that CBS must be trying to attract a republican or two to their viewership.

It was a good segment until I realized a couple of things. One, their wasn't anything unearthed that Brett Baier, of Fox News hadn't reported on over six months ago. Two, there was absolutely no attempt to get a reaction from the administration or the State Dept. on the lack of security.

We didn't even get one of those "We attempted to get a statement from the State dept. but they declined" comments.

In fact, there was no mention of the people responsible for the security in Benghazi at all in the piece.

Was this segment CBS's attempt to say "hey, remember, we covered this a long time ago"?
