Fox News White House Correspondent Ed Henry told the Associated Press Thursday that some of Fox shows and commentators have covered Benghazi more than it needed to be covered.

Sure, and Watergate was not covered enough even tho it was pretty much continuous coverage 24/7 for months on end.
Fox is “knuckling under” to the regime.
And our president says its a bump in the road. Couldn't even stay in Washington and deal with it. Had to go to freakin Vegas for a fund raiser.
Believe me when I tell you that many people in my branch of the service have taken note of his BFD attitude.
Me thinks the WH has corrupted dimples.
TREASON...in real-time, pre-meditated, continuous, ongoing. Questions NOT asked, answers NOT forthcoming. TREASON like this republic has never seen before.
Nothing to see there Ed Propagandist...move along now.
R.I.P. Glen Doherty, Sean Smith, Chris Stevens, Tyrone Woods.
R.I.H. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, David Petraeus, Susan Rice and the remainder of the co-conspirators/enablers.
The Saudi part-owners of Fox must’ve called.
Ed must be taking heat from his pals at CNN.
Hey Ed, As a Vietnam journalist I don’t think that Benghazigate has been covered ENOUGH! When the DemoRats hide something to the extent that they did, there is FIRE, not just smoke.
I’ve seen lots of coverups in my 40 years in journalism, but never AS MANY as in the OBAMA REGIME’s reign. I could make another career in just investigating and writing about them from the fiascos in DHS, HHS, Agric. (i.e. the San Joaquin massive unemployment disaster), Pigford fraud, Cobell fraud, Moslem Brotherhood disasters, Islamic penetration of our prison systems, Islamic PC efforts in the US, Rules of Engagement disasters in Aghanistan (there is a new book out on the biggest one), the failures at Manat outpost, the failures to kill Bin Laden over the years, Obama’s bowing down to every tin pot dictator, Obama’s massive connections to the US Communist/Marxist movement, his red appointees, his criminal appointees, his delusional statements, etc.
Ed: You’re young. Still time to understand that Fox has only scratched the surface of The Messiah’s disasters and coverups.
Oh, I forgot the biggest cover-upper of all, Eric Holder. You have no idea how corrupt DOJ has become under his rule, and how it has polluted/poisoned other agencies and people.
Never say “ENOUGH” when you are dealing with Obama and the Democrats, because “ENOUGH IS NEVER THE RIGHT WORD”.
“MUCH MORE” is.
MadMax, Hueys are the only way to go in Nam and Cambodia!
People in all branches of the services have taken notice. I was really shocked at how mad my “good ‘ol boy” son was and is. He practically sizzles when the subject is brought up.
I’m thinking Iran/Contra, No WMD in Iraq, Valerie Palme stories.
**WHO in the hell gave the damn order to NOT rescue our men in Benghazi?**
What’s the matter, Ed? Your buddies giving you a bad time in the press bar?
Craziness. Nancy pelosi and the libdems ran against Mark Foley in 2006 and won the HoR. The media covered all of her pronouncements and repeated all the questions ad nauseum.
Seriously, Ed, the question is not who at Fox is questioning Benghazi too much, but, why all the others are not questioning enough.
First it was “Fast and Furious” and now it’s the Benghazi murders. Everything is going down the rabbit hole.
I have lost count of all the scandals, crimes and apparent acts of treason... it’s all becoming a blur to me.
Things seem to build up, drag on and then, just blow away.
Anybody else notice that whoever covers Obama, from FoxNews, slants their stories for Obama? FED UP WITH THEM ALL!
This is very disappointing to hear him say that.
have to agree with you..Ed Henry will be ‘bought and paid’ for by the end of Hussein O. term...
and bet Ed would change his story if one of those four were a member of his family or a close friend...what say you Mr. Ed?
America does not deserve its current inhabitants.
And the current inhabitants do not deserve America.
There are some who do not deserve to be painted with this broad brush, and so I make this mention of them.
But beyond those people, the rest deserve to fall, and fall hard.
Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood in control
Libya: Hussein gave weapons to rebels. Rebels include Al Qaeda.
Syria: Hussein intends to attack Syria just as he did in Libya for the overthrow of the government so that the rebels gain control. The rebels include Al Qaeda.
Iraq: Hussein withdrew US Troops so terrorist attacks could increase. Hussein also wants that government overthrown so rebels can gain control.
Why did Hussein block relief efforts in Libya? You've have to be a Forest Gump idiot to even ask the question. The answer is obvious.
Henry was probably directing his remark, of last Thursday, to Hannity and Greta, and maybe Lou Dobbs, commentators who probably turned the Benghazi story into a bonanza ratings triumph.
But for Catherine Herridge and the other female reporter, we would still know only the talking points. Given no one seems to care, and there will be no accountability, it all seems for naught.
Issa seems already to have become bored with Fast & Furious, so what chance does Benghazi have? Poor guy. No one cares in DC. McCain chews on this stuff for his moment in the spotlight and then retreats.
I hope he is flooded with emails on this. I can’t find where to write him, and I don’t do twitter.
People know all about the holocaust and Gestapo, but US historians have covered Japan’s 1930’s considerably less. Japanese authorities hadvery good control of their media but it was ALL INFORMAL —there were VERY few actual legal provisions for formal control of the press.
It was ALL self-censorship —they’d dispatch some insider to talk to a newpaper biggie, and they’d crush stories they didn’t like —arrests of political enemies, battles that went the wrong way, even freaking NANKING; there was almost nothing they couldn’t throttle down.
Ya know what they said? They said that INFORMAL control was way better, somehow. They said that trying the suckers to censor themselves was much better than going and creating heroes by throwing them in jail, and THAT kept the system rolling.
At the time I first learned that I was incredulous but I’m sorry to say that as an American in this day and age...
I KNOW ZACTLY WHAT THEY MEANT.
Major Garret became an Axelrod groupie .
Going to the evil one birthday parties and water gun fights .
Eddy will be another Axelrod groupie but it appears he has been absorbed into the Obama media collective .
**WHO in the hell gave the damn order to NOT rescue our men in Benghazi?**
Exactly. THAT is the question and seems it has gotten lost.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
1) Only the POTUS can authorize a CBA (cross border authority) command for a rescue mission in a foreign nation.
Plus Fact Two:
2) No rescue mission was attempted.
Equals Fact Three:
3) 0bama turned his back on 41 State Dept. and CIA employees refusing to issue a CBA command and went to bed so he could go to Las Vegas the next day.
Nothing to see here. Move along.
p.s. isn't old axelrod a ‘hoot’ with the mustache gone? he made me chuckle out loud...he was ugly now just more ugly!!!
Just ask George Zimmerman or the Duke Lacrosse Team.
He should be made to go wherever Dick Morris and Karl Rove are now.
The Hannity show?
Major Garrett quit Fox News for print media a couple years ago...National Journal I believe and I could not understand why he would want to. Now I see that he is doing an Alphabet network(CBS?) but keeping some NJ column? He seems confused. I thought he was rock solid but when he left Fox...
There is no one @ FOX that is more than moderately competent....most are in the same league as Shep the homo!
AMEN to that...
there was a time I was addicted to FOX NEWS but no longer and proud to say I’ve kicked the habit...
Until the President, and possibly several members of his Staff, have been tried and convicted of Treason...
There isn’t enough coverage available during a 24 hour day.
