Thomas Ricks author of The Generals illustrates exactly how an interviewee can get enough air time on Fox News to reveal the truth. Of course the interview is likely to be cut short and the interviewee is likely to never get an invite on Fox News again.

It is important however that a string of truth tellers be poised and ready to be on Fox News to get their one 90 seconds of Fox News fame. Interesting enough Fox News burned its viewers by giving them the impression that Mitt Romney would have a big win even as all the polls said otherwise. This means that truth tellers on Fox News at least in the near term will be able to have some impact on some of their viewers.

In the video below Fox News co-anchor Jon Scott attempts to give the Fox News Benghazi hyped story legs and credibility by using the gravitas of Thomas Ricks, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, to further disparage the Obama administration on its handling of the killing of our ambassador.

It was poetic justice the manner in which Mr. Rick answered. He called the incident a small fire fight. He did not try to diminish the death of the ambassador but the silly handling by Fox News. Most importantly he called Fox News out for what it is, the propaganda arm of the Republican Party. Listen to the video below, it is a classic.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
