Fox Interview Ends After Guest Accuses
Network Of Operating As ‘Wing
Of The Republican Party’

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 11/27/2012 6:59:15 AM

Fox News interview about the Benghazi attacks ended Monday morning after the guest openly accused the network of “hyping” the story — doing so with political motivations by acting as “a wing of the Republican Party.” Author Tom Ricks was brought on Happening Now to discuss how several GOP lawmakers are backing off their criticism of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice‘s handling of the September terror attacks that left four Americans dead in Libya.

I dare this guy to go on with Megyn Kelly. Not that Jon Scott isn´t tough, but Megyn would chew him into paste before dumping his @ss.

Amd yet, he wants to sell his book, to Fox viewers.

As we all know, this is the kind of story that would be thrust upon us 24/7 (´´HYPED´´) by the FKA/MSM if it had happened during the Bush years. When I compare this and the media reaction to it, to the ValPlame NOTHINGBURGER, or Abu Ghraib, and what happened with those stories, I just fume. And then shake my head since this is such a common experience for us.

I wish, I really really wish, this guy had had the cajones to hawk his stupid book with Megyn.....

What does the number of security contractors killed in Iraq have to do with the attack by AQ on an American consulate and the murder of an American ambassador?

Obviously Mr.Ricks has not heard of the third-term logical fallacy.

Hype the story! #4 is right. The MSM hyped the Valerie Plame story until Scooter Libby was sent to jail for lying to the FBI. Abu G. was hyped until members of our military were kicked out. Bush was hyped because he dared to wear a bomber jacket and stand under a banner that said Mission Accomplished. The MSM did not hype Sandy Berger, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton. I need to stop. Ricks is a political hack for the left operating as a "wing of the Socialist Party aka Democrat Party."

Anyone who says Fox is filled with nothing but right wing conservatives immediately lets us know they don´t watch. Friend of mine is exactly like that when she spouts the manic left wing drivel. When someone says that, tho, I tune them out. They´re just repeating what they´ve been told on left wing sites.

If he accused FOX News of being a right wing of the Republican Party, what does he call CNN - NBC - MSNBC - ABC - CBS - PBS - NYT - WaPo - USAToday .... all the ´newsies´ which blatantly promote Socialism, Obama and the Democrat Party?

This is Marxism at its best, accusing others of the activities your party practices.

I thought Scott handled it properly. He realized Ricks did not want to have a serious discussion. Don´t waste the time. It would be like trying to have an intelligent discussion with Bill Press, Sgt. Shultz, or Jeanne Garofolo. Impossible.

´As opposed to the rest of the media, who are nothing but water-boys and cheerleaders for Obama ?´

You´d think the best defense would be a good offense here but instead fighting from our heels is SOP. Scott should have laughed in his face, cited ubiquitous lefty projection and gotten back on topic.

Ricks´ visit to Fox could be an early foray into enemy territory. The left has been quietly targeting Fox, talk radio and the internet, percolating for four years, about to bubble over.

Jon Scott is NOT the one to take on a guy like this. Not the sharpest knife in the door, he gets lost when things go off script.

Formerly lite Bill Hemmer seems to be coming on stronger these days. Formerly sort of a fluffy early morning type, he did some terrific work during the election. I was surprised.

For openers, the fact that this article appears in MEDIAite should be a dead giveaway about the leftward direction in which it’s going to lean.

Fox News Channel sometimes goes much too far out of its way to be “fair and balanced.” FNC is so heavily laden with liberal democrats that I sometimes wonder if I’ve wandered inadvertently over to CNN or, heaven forefend, MSNBC.

Fox News regulars such as Juan Williams, Bob Beckel and Alan Colmes along with the increasingly growing cadre of Fox News irregulars – “contributors” - who inhabit the channel often cause a goodly number of viewers to complain, frequently on threads such as this one.

The road to um, uh, somewhere or other, is paved with good intentions; probably by members of the pavers union.

Mr. Ricks is cunning in his approach. The best defense is a good offense. Four men were murdered and two men´s careers were trashed (or fired) same thing, Rear Admiral Gaouette and General Ham for launching a rescue attempt that would have saved these brave men but was thwarted by the highest office in the land. That is the coverup and Mr. Ricks has proven he is not a journalist, investigative or otherwise.

And I´ve been complaining that Fox News is going "wobbley" on us. I can´t take Whoraldo Rivers and I can barely stomach Shep Smith. Also there are Bob Beckel and Juan Williams who appear daily at Fox News and who grow more tiresome by the day. Juan, in particular, should be forever grateful that Rupert Murdoch rescued him after he lost his job at NPR (or was it PBS? - same difference).

If Fox News is a wing of anything it´s a wing of the Bush crowd. The term GOP correctly defined in 2012 is the Bush crowd. They hold court on Fox News.

We live in a press world akin to 1960´s USSR. Only one voice and it isn´t true, objective or even remotely objective. They have made talk raido their next target . And sadly that is our radio free America. Sites like this are now outposts of freedom. Don´t give guys like this a voice. He really is nothing but a tool with an ego and nno original thought.

Someone please tell me when the last time a coordinated military style assault was made on a US embassy and allowed to continue for 7 hours without a full military response to save our men.

Someone also please tell me when we knew we had been hit by terrorists and refused to even acknowledge they had taken credit. They remained widely seen on the street while the FBI stayed away for a month because the risk of confrontation was too high.

Everyone-

Stop watching all cable and network news...including FOX. Get information from the internet. Significant drop in viewership will send shockwaves through media.

Stop buying books from news personalities- conservative or liberal including OReilly Hannity etc.

If Fox displeases you so, there is a new station called ´The Blaze´ - it is available on ROKU and Dish - it is privately owned and does not have to abide by any agenda other than the truth. So quit moaning and do yourselves a favor.For a miniscule monthly outlay you can have access to what is really going on.

But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —

A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that

Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.
