"You are supposed to provide oversight. That's why you have special liberties and that's why you have special protections."

Trey Gowdy gives the media a dressing down of epic proportions. You will enjoy this. - Best Of Cain

Gowdy understand at the outset that he first had to undercut the media narrative that this is a non-story, and he did that by quoting Obama's own words. If it's not really a serious issue, then Obama wouldn't have said the things he said. But he did, and because he did, you can't argue that Gowdy's questions are just a bunch of partisan noise.

Again and again, Gowdy illustrates the absurdity of the nonsense that has come from the administration on this, and ever-present is the message that the media have been derelict in their duties by accepting this line of crap instead of really looking for answers. If this is the way he's going to conduct the investigation, he's going to make it awfully difficult for the media to ignore the story. That's what they want to do, but they will only do it if they can get away with it without too many people noticing the hit their credibility is taking.

They want to protect Obama (and Hillary), but they want to protect themselves first.
