Today, on America Live, host Megyn Kelly closed one of many reports on the Newtown shootings with, “It’s just important not to spend all day, every minute on this. You know, there’s only so much the human spirit can take.” So to uplift the spirits of her viewers, Kelly trotted out conspiracy-theorist extraordinaire Monica Crowley to attack the Obama administration with baseless speculation over Benghazi.
Kelly said, “Just to delve into politics seems like an escape.”
Yeah, especially when you can concoct something juicy for your Obama-hating viewers after a whole weekend of him looking good!
Today’s item on the menu: the virus with “impeccable timing” (as Crowley put it) that caused Hillary Clinton to faint, get a concussion and cancel her appearance before a Congressional committee investigating Benghazi later this week.
Kelly, with suspicion dripping from her voice asked, “What’s really going on?”
Of course, neither Kelly nor Crowley wanted to say that Clinton had not gotten a concussion. But that didn’t stop them from suggesting otherwise and noting that there had been “speculation” beforehand that Clinton would not testify before Congress about Benghazi.
Yet Even Crowley and her double-wide hair acknowledged that Clinton was likely to testify at some later time. This, after Kelly acknowledged that one of Clinton’s deputies would probably appear in her stead this week.
But, of course, there was still plenty of time to rev up the Benghazi fever for the viewers. And speculate about how this might all be about Clinton’s possible 2016 presidential candidacy.
Crowley said that the Inspector General’s report out today would probably contain some “mighty embarrassing” things for her and her department. “Understandable she doesn’t want to have to answer for it,” Crowley added. However, she also said that some of it might vindicate Clinton.
So there was no real news here, just some speculation from an Obama-hating pundit designed to malign Hillary Clinton’s potential 2016 candidacy. Ah, the Fox News viewers must be so relieved to see their favorite network get back to normal again.
I’ve been working with F&F in the background and heard several segments by Peter Doocy from Newtown where he finally said that the police might not have all the answers for weeks even months.
Not a peep of shock and awe at the lack of transparency, etc. etc. etc. As usual, the foxies will adopt a double or triple or quadruple standard depending on their memo.
1) Fox News demonizes schools and teachers, saying they do nothing but “indoctrinate children into socialist propaganda”. After hundreds of segments about this, a whopping nine shooting plots crop up- Five of which target schools.
2) Fox News defends the guns, while looking for back-handed ways to blame the schools and the teachers with that whole “God in the classroom” bullshit," conveniently ignoring every debate, as well as the fact that the connecticut shooter is the second shooter that his father was in the LIBOR scandal.
The first was James Holmes, in case you’re wondering. Note how that part was left out of their coverage of him, too.
3) It comes out that they were told to not bring up the debates or the connections to the LIBOR scandal. Praise the lawd, pass the ammo, and pray CNN and MSNBC give the LIBOR thing quick, one-line mentions people gloss over and never Google again!
4) It massively backfires on them, the NRA and pro-gun Republicans in office. They need a distraction… so they realize OMFG, we haven’t told any lies about the Benghazi “scandal” in almost 4 days!
And that’s when Megyn Kelly becomes more than the legs they were leering at the whole time.
but, true to form, Meg didn’t learn anything . . .
