    Yes, I do. Posting someone else opinion is not posting fact.

    Abruptly ending interviews because of a little criticism is very unproffesional of a major news network. Very bad form for Fox News.

    We all know Fox is right-biased. Nothing to see here.

    Happens at the other networks as well. As I said, opining in a news article that the interview was abruptly ended because of criticism is just that. An Opinion.

    That's not my point. I'm just saying that there isn't anything newsworthy here. But that won't stop USMB from masses of right/left counter-volleys of anger/insults/bullshit. Much ado about nothing, really.

    It's (Fox operating as a wing of the Republican Party) something that any rational American would think after just a few minutes watching any Faux News Broadcast.

    I thought it was a great response by Ricks:

    Ricks said he thought the story of the Benghazi attacks was "hyped, by this network especially."

    Scott asked why Ricks would call it hype when four Americans were killed, including the first U.S. ambassador in more than 30 years.

    Ricks responded that few people knew how many U.S. security contractors were killed in Iraq and compared that to the attention paid to "what was essentially a small firefight" in Libya.

    "I think that the emphasis on Benghazi has been extremely political, partly because Fox was operating as a wing of the Republican Party," Ricks said.

    With that, Scott thanked him and turned to a co-anchor, who introduced a commercial.

    The community organizer is on a learning curve, you cant blame him.............

    Who could have known US diplomats were facing imminent danger in an unsecure terrorist state like Libya, even after repeated requests for assistance..........

    Besides, whats four deaths in the scheme of things ???

    No investigation is needed as long as we have diversity and change at the state dept..........Lol

    Freedom of the press, for all intents and purposes, guarantees that most media outlets will be biased. Objectivity becomes more and more rare.

    American journalists are low class gutter dwellers because gutter trash is what Americans wish to consume.

    Amen.


    And when you read or hear about Benghazi, or any other issue for that matter, think of this:
