It's Saturday night and time to open up our mailbag of emails from people who thought they were writing to Fox News. Our subjects range from Benghazi, welfare, Shepard Smith calling President Obama "Mr. Obama" and some I can't decipher. Here for your voyeuristic enjoyment and for the Fox trolls to pass along to their paymasters is our latest crop.
As usual, all identifying information has been removed to protect the ignorant. Spelling and grammar have been left intact.

Subject: Benghazi tv coverage
Faithful Fox News watcher. Very disappointed in your tv coverage of the Benghazi hearing coverage. Months of waiting for some real information and instead we get the rambling of your news hosts. Adds are understandable.

Subject: more sleuthing from O
I have just listened to Howie Carr. He is a renowned radio talk show host. Please contact him for the correct facts about the following topic he presented today. Please report the correct facts on Fox News. We listen every night.
Howie just said that “he” is secretly smuggling haitians across the boarders! This is disgraceful and he should be stopped. PLEASE PUT THIS OUT ON FOX NEWS.
**Also, Howie quoted Gov. Patrick, of MA. saying he is in favor of everyone being on welfare! He and the democrats are opposing Shauna O’connell because she and a state rep. want to cut out the waste on the EBT cards. Shauan wants each card to have a face of the recipient. The gov. and democrats have shot it down.
Please check out these and let’s stop the waste and sleuthing. Thank you.
many concerned citizens

I am a republican. I listened to Sheppard Smith this evening, and I was so angered by what he had said/reported, for the very first time, I am writing to you because of a comment “Mr.” Smith made. I found it absolutely distastful, disrespectful, insolent and dishonorable to refer to the President of the United States as “Mr. Obama.” How dare you be so disrespectful! In the future, I insist as an American citizen that when you speak to or about the presidency, you respectfully call him, as duly elected, “PRESIDENT OBAMA”. Shame on Fox, you disappoint me and many other republicans within our community. My phone rang non-stop critizing Fox on this issure.

Subject: America Live , Hillary reference
I don’t know if this qualifies as a news tip, but on Thursday, May 16, 2013, America Live host Megyn Kelly was interviewing reporter James Rosen on the Benghazi scandal. In that news clip, producers showed a clip of an e-mail sent by Victoria Nuland describing the talking points over the attack and how to mitigate the fallout from that debacle. However, In the first sentence of the next paragraph, Ms. Nuland made a reference to “Hill”... , and I was wondering if that was in reference to the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. And if so, were Ms. Nuland and others trying to protect Secretary Clinton from any fallout of the Benghazi attack, or by that reference, did Ms. Nuland infer that Secretary Clinton was more involved in and have a greater knowledge of the affair than she has publically stated.
That one sentence caught my eye, and I was wondering if it caught yours as well.
For what it’s worth, I’m pretty sure “Hill” meant Capitol Hill. But why should we puncture someone’s conspiracy-theory balloon with the facts on Benghazi? Fox certainly wouldn’t.
How many times have we here said exactly the same thing??
And was that a very unhappy christian up there? We better be getting that Rapture bus ready!!
