There’s one topic about which Americans aren’t outraged enough? Benghazi. FOX News has renewed its fervor lately, cutting away from President Obama’s speech on Friday because no one asked about Benghazi–and from a White House press conference on Monday because it wasn’t about…Benghazi. You see the pattern.
Jon Stewart identified the problem with FOX News’ repeated musings about why people are not “outraged” over Benghazi. “You’re asking people to get outraged about an intelligence failure that tragically led to some Americans losing their lives,” Stewart said. “One intelligence failure.”
Stewart then gave a rundown of the many, many intelligence failures on the part of the Bush administration that cost American lives–you know, the ones about which conservatives conveniently lacked outrage? He commended FOX News for “finally getting in touch” with its “inner outrage,” an emotion that FOX did not feel comfortable expressing.
He reminded FOX that they supported and made excuses for a number of shady, face-saving measures, lies, and, of course, under-equipment of troops, on the part of the Bush administration that most certainly cost American lives.
“The reason it’s hard for everybody to get outraged by this terribly tragic and ultimately preventable disaster that was Benghazi is that everybody in this country has seen this movie before,” finished Stewart. “Only that movie was on an IMAX.”
