FOX News Is a Slave to the GOP, According to Thomas Ricks

Welp. FOX News got a live reality check from one of their guests in a recent news segment.
Defense analyst Thomas Ricks appeared on the network to discuss the September 11 attacks on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya and veered slightly off-script from the intended direction of the interview. Ricks told the host, Jon Scott, that FOX News played a major role in hyping up the tragedy in an attempt to derail President Obama’s chances at a second term.
Ricks went even further to say outright that FOX operated “as a wing of the Republican Party,” when it came to the Benghazi conflict.
And with that bold truth, Scott abruptly ended the interview.
I don’t know why he (Scott) was mad. Thomas Ricks was telling the honest to God truth that everyone has been saying for years about FOX. They spew a stream of talking points for the GOP.
