Fox News has gone silent on Benghazi amid reports that the House Intelligence Committee concluded that there was no intentional wrongdoing in the Obama administration's response to the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported on August 1 that the Republican-led House Intelligence Committee voted to declassify findings from its investigation into the 2012 attacks on U.S diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, and "concluded that there was no deliberate wrongdoing by the Obama administration in the 2012 attack," according to committee member Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA).

The intelligence community "did not have specific tactical warning of an attack before it happened," the process used to create administration talking points was "flawed" but "reflected the conflicting intelligence assessments in the days immediately following the crisis, and "there was no 'stand-down order' given to American personnel," Ranking Member Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-CA) said in a statement laying out the committee's findings.

It's a clinical, point-by-point refutation of the Benghazi hoax Fox has pushed for nearly 2 years.

Yet Fox News made no mention of the report on Monday.* In sharp contrast to its current silence, when House Speaker John Boehner announced the formation of a select committee to investigate Benghazi in June, Fox devoted at least 225 segments to the topic over just two weeks, an estimated publicity value of more than $124 million.

Fox's sudden lack of interest in congressional investigations into Benghazi comes less then one week after Rep. Trey Gowdy, head of the select committee, announced - in what Fox News billed as an "exclusive" interview - that he would hold more public hearings on the attacks in September.

Fox News and its viewers don't read. This story will do nothing to stop the Benghazi talking points. They are still trying to paint the man as a muslim

Deep down in the Fox News building basement, in the praying chambers of the Conservative Temple of Doom, between the portraits of Dick Cheney and Karl Rove, the voodoo dolls heaps of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, there are people in robes crying under their hoods and that gives me a joy of phenomenal size.

is this fox news the tv channel? any possibility to have this as an online live-stream because otherwise i cant get it.

if you mean fox news radio, this cant be, because, besides they endlessly look for balance, yep they have karl rove, but also james carville for example, and the ammount of news they give, about gaza and about iraq is just awesome.

Problem is this isn't the investigation done by the House Select Committee. That doesn't start hearings until next month, and they will cover areas not covered by the Intelligence Committee whose focus was more narrow.
