FOX News Guest Shuffled Off After Accusing Network of Hyping Benghazi, Operating as a Wing of the GOP: VIDEO


Pultizer Prize-winning journalist and author Tom Ricks delivered a delicious smackdown to FOX News today for hyping the Benghazi attack and operating "as a wing of the Republican Party"...

...after which the interview ended abruptly.


In related news, UN Ambassador Susan Rice is to meet with Senate Republicans:

Ms. Rice, the president’s ambassador to the United Nations and a front-runner to be the next secretary of state, will meet with Senator John McCain of Arizona and two other Republican senators who have excoriated her, saying she provided a misleading account of the attack on the diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya...Also attending the meeting will be Senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, officials said. Ms. Rice will be accompanied by Michael J. Morell, the acting C.I.A. director.

  5. It ain't FOX News, it's Fox News. "FOX" would make sense if it were an acronym, but it ain't.

    I say, don't INFLATE their unduly bloated egos any further.

    In any case, I love how the anchor built up the credentials of the guest just before the guest said the things that ended the interview. For his part, I think the guest would have done better to hold off a bit before bringing up Fox's hype and political motivations. He could held back, and built more credibility first, and then closed with a candid discussion of Fox's lack of neutrality.

  6. Ricks is a putz for Barack Hussein Obama, and all you ØHoles whining about Fox news are as well.

    You have 4-5 networks plus most major newspapers all with their lips wrapped around Barack Hussein Obama's islamo-marxist shtick, and Fox has liberals on every day compared to the rest of your BS media that only does a daily circle jerk with Media Matters.

    Plus Ricks is nothing BUT A MOUTHPIECE FOR THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD WING OF THE WHITE HOUSE that is downplaying Benghazi and ignoring how Barack Hussein Obama watched Stevens get raped and murdered LIVE, AND DID NOTHING.

  9. EditorJP... grow up and stop acting like a Pathetic nutjob... Obama is NOT Kenyan, Muslim, An Alien or anything else, but a President who was re-elected.... FOX NEWS is biased.... and for the Millionth time, A LIBERAL is not a dirty word... it's only a word that Conservatives throw around when they have NOTHING, but CONTEMPT...

  10. Remove the tinfoil hat from your head EDITORJP. Your right wing talking points are an absolute joke. Funny, CNN always has a rep from the Democratic AND Republican sides when doing interviews. But, you wouldn't know that since you're watching Fox "News" all day. Remove your lips from the right wing/Tea Party bullsh*t shtick buddy.

    Bush lied and several thousand died.

  11. editorjp was pretty funny.... Yeah, the right-wing Wall Street Journal, or right-wing Washington Post, or right-wing Washington Time, or right-wing NY Post, or right-wing Boston Herald don't count...

    what a tool.....

  12. @EditorJP: While Benghazi was the first ambassador killed in 30some years, the Republicans conveniently forget that Bush II presided over far more violence directed at US embassies and consultates than Obama. Get your facts straight.

    They could not kick Tom Ricks out of the building fast enough. I'm surprised the feed didn't go black and the anchor start claiming technical difficulties.

  14. I can imagine the Fox News sirens were going off outside, screaming: "ALERT! ALERT! THE ECHO CHAMBER HAS BEEN BREACHED! SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING!"

  15. The Bubble burst at warp speed, I now hear Susan Rice will have an audience with McCain so he can be further shuffled off into irrevelance. This folks, is the time to boycott anything Fox related.

  16. Ended abruptly? Are we watching the same tape? The segment was over, he thanked him for his time then went on to whatever was next. How is that ending abruptly? Nothing would please me more than seeing Faux News shaded but this doesn't seem to be it.

  17. Well, they didn't physically eject him from his chair on air, but when the intro for the guest takes longer than the guest comment, I'd say it was abrupt.

  18. @MASTIK8, it was supposed to be a 4 minute interview, according to other news outlets who reported on this. Instead it got cut to about a minute because they clearly didn't like what he had to say.

  19. @LUKE, Thanks for the clarification.

    Posted by: mastik8 | Nov 27, 2012 11:31:19 AM

  20. @Mastik8: interviews don't normally last just two questions (the introduction lasted longer!). The interviewer should have followed up on his allegation against Fox, but he didn't. Maybe they were afraid of being challenged?

    Posted by: BETTY | Nov 27, 2012 12:28:45 PM

  21. The headline for this post sounded like he shuffled himself off—but he was really shuffled off by the news anchor.
