Fox News anchor Jon Scott interviewed Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist  and military historian Thomas Ricks on Monday about the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi.

And probably wishes he hadn’t.

    Long overdue! Are the Fox News screeners just not doing their jobs and allowing people who are not GOP apparatchiks on air?

    That is the way that cartoon station should be smacked down.
    Do those muppets, that or anchor men, not cringe with embarrassment when they read the so called news out.

    Fox News is terrible obviously but I fail to see how this was a “smackdown”? You can’t expect an anchor to happen to know a not particularly pertinent fact about contractors killed in another country?

    Anytime Fox News makes the slightest error people love to prove their own liberal credentials by mocking it but it’s really unnecessary when they make a COLOSSAL error at least once a week.

    It’s glib and unthinking.

      Its a smackdown because they NEVER give people who openly criticise them the time of day, here they obviously completely missed this guys hate of them in the vetting process and let him on live, thats why its a smackdown

      Saw that too. Thought that was what this post was all about until I turned the sound up and actually listened.
