For the second straight day, CBS Evening News ignored a revealing story related to the 2012 attack at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi on Thursday.

According to official e-mails obtained by Judicial Watch, Ben Rhodes — a White House aide and the brother of CBS president David Rhodes — told former U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to use a false talking point when referring to the attack in Libya that left U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and one other American dead. Another attack occurred the following day at a nearby CIA annex and two more Americans were killed.

Rhodes wrote to Rice in the days following the attacks to prepare her talking points for the Sunday talk shows.

Listed as a "goal" was this line for Rhodes: "To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure or policy."

ABC World News and NBC Nightly News both aired stories related to the e-mails during their Wednesday night broadcasts. CBS News did publish a story to its website.

Reporters grilled White House press secretary Jay Carney on the subject Wednesday. He said the e-mail referred to the protests across the Arab world, not specifically in Benghazi.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham told Newsmax on Thursday the House should create a special committee to figure out what really happened in Libya.

"Let's call Ben Rhodes, the author of the document, and ask him what it was about and use common sense," Graham said on Newsmax TV. "Do you think they were worried about property damage to the embassy in Cairo from a protest? No. they were worried about the four dead Americans in Benghazi."
