Fox News Pulls Military Expert for Telling the Truth About Network’s Benghazi Coverage [Video]

THE INTERVIEW ended quickly when Tom Ricks, noted military blogger and author, called the Fox News channel what it is, “a wing of the Republican Party.”

Classic exchanged and deserved, because from the moment the Benghazi terrorist attack occurred FNC has offered coverage that was biased and unbalanced, which I proved time and again, first in an attempt to help Mitt Romney through using hyper partisan analysis, then turning to a campaign that focused on ruining Ambassador Susan Rice’s reputation, when the questions that needed to be asked had nothing to do with her.

Ambassador Rice will be meeting with Senator McCain today, with Senators Graham and Ayotte present, but also with acting C.I.A. Director Mike Morell at her side. It’s the beginning of what is widely believed in Washington as the ramp up to President Obama announcing her nomination for secretary of state. Senator Kerry has also been mentioned, but all signs point to Rice.

    How dare this guy tell the truth on Fox, who does he think he is? Nobody is allowed to tell the truth on Fox, and he should have known better.

    Telling the truth seems to be a faux pas in DC these days. We’ll see if he’s invited back on Fox. My bet is no. He made the point at least three times that he thought Fox’ coverage was either biased or outright nonsense, and it seems unlikely that any modern cable news channel would let that pass.

      Oh BULL SHIT! I won’t even bother with the male bovine fecal matter. Faux not news is the ONLY cable show…it sure as FRACK ain’t a news show…that would do this crap.

        Horse hockey, and pathetically obvious horse hockey at that. By your logic, none of the current news channels are news channels. If you think otherwise, you can provide examples of people criticizing the network they’re being interviewed on explicitly and repeatedly, and being invited back soon after. If not, kiss my furry butt.

        Or learn to have an intelligent conversation. It’s up to you. My part of the conversation is done until then.

    Fox already came out and said that he will never be invited back.

      Based on a DuckDuckGo search, it looks like Jon Stewart didn’t make an appearance on CNN between 2004 and 2010, when he was on Larry King hyping his faux-political movement. He’s generally an entertaining interview and one would assume CNN could have used the ratings.

      Pointed criticism of the network you’re being interviewed on will get you off their “goto” list, no matter which network that is, even if that criticism is justified.

      Fox may be the worst of the lot (I think it is based on second hand information, since I don’t have cable), but it’s by no means alone in this regard. Too bad, really, because all of the news channels could do with some serious cluestick-wacking these days.
