Jon Stewart “Even Megyn Kelly, who was, prior to that desperately searching for answers, had the House intelligence committee chair Mike Rogers (R-MI) on her show two weeks after he released the Benghazi report, and never asked him about it once.  Not bleeping once. Yes, the network who used the word Benghazi like a clubhouse password, the official Republican dominated House report on Benghazi was the only news story in two years that didn’t remind them to talk about Benghazi.

Which brings us once again to our main point of respect and appreciation.  The beauty that is the ugliness of Fox News.  They demand accountability for anger and divisiveness whilst holding themselves entirely unaccountable for their anger and divisiveness.  For two years they used Benghazi as shorthand, as a symbol for the whole concept of a corrupt lying, tyrannical, possibly murderous Obama White House, kind of like other people used Hands Up Don’t Shoot as a symbol for systemic racism.  There’s really only one difference between the two phenomena.  Systemic racism actually exists. “

Megyn Kelly – Fox News: Let me ask you about DOD [Department of Defense]. Because I know your report concludes that DOD officials believed nearly from the onset that this was a terrorist attack and not some sort of a protest gone awry. Now, I want to get specific, because so many people have said, ‘So then why did Susan Rice go out and talk about protests? Why did she mention a video?’ But the CIA talking points, the very first draft that went out and was circulated, that Susan Rice ultimately was provided, that top officials ultimately saw, talked about a protest. They did. The CIA actually came out, I want to look at it here, and said this is a draft from September 14th, 11:15 am, ‘We believe based on currently available information that the attacks in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault.’ So, tell me, does that — does it or does it not answer the question about how our officials started to come out and talk about protests and the video?

Thursday night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Kimmel was making light of Fox anchor Megyn Kelly’s recent remarks that Santa Claus is indubitably and indisputably a white man.

Kimmel said, “Fortunately they had a panel of experts to weigh in on this important subject.”

Panelist Monica Crowley asserted that “you can’t take facts and then try to change them to fit some sort of a political agenda or a sensitively agenda.”

“You can’t?” quipped Kimmel, “I thought that was the Fox News business model.”

National Rifle Association (NRA) CEO Wayne LaPierre on Thursday found himself struggling to explain to Fox News host Megyn Kelly why a ban on high-capacity magazines could not have saved some of the 20 children who were murdered in Newtown, Connecticut last December.

After playing some video of parents of victims speaking to CBS News, Kelly noted that they had made a “powerful” argument that “if Adam Lanza, the shooter at Newtown, had not had 30 round magazines — if he had only had 10 rounds in these guns — more children would have lived.”

“The people who are going to do horror and terror, they aren’t going to cooperate,” the NRA chief replied. “All you’re going to do is make the law books thicker for the law-abiding people. From the very start, my thought has been about how little this had to do with keeping kids safe and how much it has to do with this decades-long agenda against firearms that some in the political class and the media have had.”

“You hear the parents and the spouses of those killed — there were 20 children and six adults killed,” Kelly pointed out, bringing LaPierre back to the point of high-capacity magazines. “Eleven children had a chance to escape as that guy reloaded. And the one man is saying there, if he had to reload five times instead of one time, how many more lives would have been saved?”

“That is, to me, the most compelling argument,” the Fox News host added.

“My response is criminals aren’t going to have less,” LaPierre insisted. “One round in the hand of someone who is going to do horror too many.”

“But how do you know, Wayne?” Kelly pressed. “Adam Lanza, his mother was a legal gun owner, and how do you know that his person, that his mother would not have obeyed the law and limited the magazine clip? And then Adam Lanza would have been limited to 10 rounds instead of 30.”

“Megyn, people that know guns — you can change magazine clips in a second,” LaPierre remarked. “There’s no evidence that anything would have changed.”

From the Feb. 21, 2013, edition of “Viewpoint.”

John Fugelsang:

I was watching Fox News yesterday, because I’m a thinker. And I happened to be watching Megyn Kelly when I heard some alarming news about the folks at Al Jazeera America — the people who just bought this channel.

[From Fox]: “There’s a real anti-American bias there and yet they’re about to infiltrate America. … They’re expanding to eight cities, one of them being Detroit, Mich. Detroit, Mich., is a large ex-pat community of Muslim Americans where sleeper cells have been detected.”

Ah, Megyn Kelly. How can someone so smart and so pretty have a show that’s so stupid and so ugly.

But if this little bit of TV gold illustrates something, it’s why Fox News is truly a mecca for people who hate Mecca.

So let’s get a few things straight. First, Ms. Daftari, right there, the correspondent, complained that Qatari petro-dollars are funding this here network. Well, I gotta say I love it when the people who brought us George W. Bush warn us of the evils of oil money. So I could tell you about all the petro-chemical dollars Fox News boss Rupert Murdoch makes from his many investments, but I don’t want to upset him because I don’t feel like getting my phone hacked.

So I’ll just mention a name you don’t hear too often on Fox, that of Saudi Arabian Prince Walid bin Talal. He is the second-largest shareholder in News Corp. — the number two guy at Fox News — and where do you think he got his money?

And it’s true, as contributor Lisa Daftari just pointed out, that there are many Muslims in the state of Michigan. They’re not sleeper cells. They’re hardworking people who came to America to escape oppression and seek a better life — even if that life includes being slapped in the face by ignorant race-baiting McCarthyite neo-cons like Ms. Daftari on Fox News.

So now, let us move, if you will, on to Al Jazeera America. The parent company is headquartered in Doha, Qatar, or Qatar, depending on how ignorant you are.

John Fugelsang: What do you call it, Dean?

Dean Obeidallah: Either way I’ve heard it.

John Fugelsang: It’s good to have a Muslim friend around.

Now, Fox News viewers may be shocked to learn this, but Qatar is in fact an important American ally. During the beginning of the so-called War on Terror they offered the U.S. and its allies use of their air base, and America currently has three bases there. President George Bush visited Qatar in 2003 — or, if you’re Megyn Kelly, infiltrated it.

And you know who else has infiltrated Qatar? Texas A&M University. They’ve got a campus there, just like Carnegie Mellon, Georgetown and Northwestern. Thus combining two things Fox News hates — Muslims and education.

Now, my experience with Al Jazeera America so far has been very limited. The ones I’ve met have been extremely nice people and I say same pretty edgy things on this show and no one from Al Jazeera America has ever tried to curtail my First Amendment rights. So while John Boehner and congressional Republicans try to obstruct any economic progress because they’re afraid it might make Barack Obama look good, Al Jazeera America is doing something the GOP seemingly can’t do — they’re creating lots and lots of jobs. For Americans.

They’re not here to push an anti-American bias, they’re here because they want to do news. And I’m not a journalist — although I play one on TV — but they do news very well. It was a Republican, Colin Powell, who told my former boss Mr. Gore that Al Jazeera was one of the news networks he watched and trusted.

Now. I don’t think the people who run Fox are bigots. They’re business people. Business people who pay on-camera people to smear Muslim people so bigoted viewing people can please the rating people.

Stupid talk for stupid racists by very smart executives. And if that’s the kind of programming Fox wants, I get it. I’m a capitalist. But I have a Muslim cousin, a Jewish sister-in-law, an atheist brother and an ex-nun mother. So I don’t get to hate on anybody.
