Navel Contemplation, Anyone?

Why are we not surprised that See-B.S. News won't permit an external, independent review of their "60 Minutes" Benghazi Benghazi! BENGHAZI!! debacle?  They have chosen to conduct an "internal" review by one of their producers (unlike the external investigation they commissioned for the Dumbya National Guard report by Dan Rather back in 2004).

So:  will there be an investigation of the report's connection to the right-wing, CBS-owned Threshold Editions?  Will Lara Logan's previously-expressed bias on the Benghazi incident be examined?  Will the "investigation" determine why the network couldn't accomplish what the New York Times and Washington Post did to discredit the manufactured story?  Will there be a whitewash?  No, no, no, and yes.
