Greta Van Susteren appeared on This Week yesterday and went to bat for her Fox New colleagues who had accused Hillary Clinton of faking a concussion to avoid testifying about Benghazi.
When host George Stephanopoulos asked her to explain the Fox News comments about Clinton's concussion, Van Susteren said:
I'm responsible for what I say, number one. Those were all very dated, before she was hospitalized, and there was not much information coming out of the State Department. And very early on, with those quotes.
Look, you know, not for one second did I doubt it. Once that these people heard that she was seriously ill, that all changed. The secretary of state will have to -- I think should answer questions about Benghazi. There's a lot of mystery, and four people were murdered. If there were four people murdered in Washington that were unsolved, we'd still be asking questions to this day.
But, look, she was very sick. And when the State Department came out with more information, you saw all that stop. So I have nothing beyond to say that.
Well, I can understand why Van Susteren would not want to say much about her colleagues' comments. But she is wrong that "all that" stopped once the State Department came out with more information. For one thing, John Bolton pretended he had never doubted Clinton's concussion - an accusation originally made on Van Susteren's show and which aroused a rather snippy retort in Clinton's defense from Van Susteren.
Furthermore, if she really thinks "that all changed" once the news that Clinton had been hospitalized for a blood clot following the concussion, Van Susteren really needs to take a look at the smearing and jeering that Bill O'Reilly, Greg Gutfeld and Bernard McGuirk engaged in Friday night.
