    Not if you call them on their propaganda

    Fox News pulls the plug on guest Thomas Ricks: Was he being rude or honest? - The Week

    "What happens when you agree to come on Fox News and then proceed to hammer the network for serving as a 'wing of the Republican Party'?" asks Eric Wemple at The Washington Post. "Answer: You don't stay on the air too long." That's the lesson Pulitzer Prize–winning military journalist Thomas Ricks learned on Monday, when he was invited on the Fox News show Happening Now to talk about his new book, The Generals, and troop readiness. Host Jon Scott started out asking about the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

    "I think that Benghazi generally was hyped, by this network especially

    He ended with a flourish: "I think that the emphasis on Benghazi has been extremely political, partly because Fox was operating as a wing of Republican Party." After a total of 90 seconds, Scott abruptly ended the interview, which Ricks says was slotted to last between three and five minutes

    They did hype it. But you didnt see anything on it anywhere else untill after the election, did you? All media is swayed one way or another. You cant read a political article without it being biased to the right or left

    Actually it has fizzled after the election

    Benghazi didn't have the legs that the Fox Propaganda machine thought it would. It had zero impact on the election.

    Of course Fox will continue beating the dead horse, but the rest of the country sees it as a tragedy not a coverup

    Cover up? I just want a few answers from my government of what happened and why it happened. What went wrong? How do we prevent such tragedy in the future. I also want to know why Susan Rice went down the path of explaining a situation that she really had no idea of what was going on. I want to know why a film was blamed for so long afterwards. I want some transparency instead of secrecy.

    He was yanked because he was invited on (yes, INVITED) to discuss his book and instead went off on a tear of left wing talking points about Fox news and the GOP.

    Funny, he didn't mention how CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, etc. are ALL in bed with the Democrats... he's aparently fine with that.
