The presidents of ABC News and CBS News have siblings who work in the Obama administration and are involved with Benghazi.

Political consultant Richard Grenell told "Fox News Watch" that the ties raise concerns as to why the mainstream media has not more aggressively pursued the story.

Story continues below video.



"I think the media's becoming the story, let's face it," Grenell said. "CBS News President David Rhodes and ABC News President Ben Sherwood, both of them have siblings that not only work at the White House, that not only work for President Obama, but they work at the (National Security Council) on foreign policy issues directly related to Benghazi. Let's call a spade a spade."

Rhodes' brother, Ben, is President Barack Obama's deputy national security adviser for strategic communication, and Sherwood's sister, Dr. Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, is Obama's special assistant, Newsbusters reports.

Additionally, CNN deputy bureau chief Virginia Moseley is married to Hillary Clinton’s deputy, Tom Nides, Grenell noted. "It is time for the media to start asking questions why are they not covering this. It's a family matter for some of them."

Nides is deputy secretary of state for management and resources.

ABC reported Friday that Rhodes, brother of the CBS News president, was key to revising the talking points that were issued after the attack and are under scrutiny from a House subcommittee.

CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson has come under fire from her own employer for allegedly "wading dangerously close to advocacy on" Benghazi."
