    SMITH of texas in the house of representatives Tuesday, January 13, 2015 Mr. SMITH of Texas. Mr. Speaker, the media watchdog organization Accuracy in Media recently recounted the ``Top ten misreported and underreported stories of 2014.'' At the top of their list was the media's failure to adequately report on the Benghazi scandal. Very few in the media expressed any interest in covering the attack on our embassy that led to the death of four Americans including a U.S. ambassador.

    Other biased stories on the list include the media downplaying the rise of the Islamic State, portraying Israel as the aggressor in its dealings with Palestine, and the holdings by federal judges against President Obama's actions on immigration and Obamacare.

    In December, a federal judge in Pennsylvania ruled that President Obama's executive actions on immigration are unconstitutional. This was block-buster news but most Americans never heard or read about it.

    The media should give the American people the facts, not cover them up.
