Susteren: It’s Obama’s Fault If Fox News ‘Gets It Wrong’
Greta Van Susteren was agog over the “breaking news” that amounted to a bunch of emails showing that the White House knew that a terror group had claimed responsibility for the attacks on Benghazi. Of course, “claimed responsibility” is not the same thing as actually being responsible but in her excitement to finger the Obama administration as having engaged in some kind of nefarious cover up, Van Susteren didn’t bother with that pesky detail. Instead, she actually blamed the Obama administration for any of her own network’s reporting mistakes.
Look, he’s the one who’s not putting – he’s the one who’s creating this vacuum. He’s the one who has the information who could tell us. He’s the one who can get on TV and tell us. He’s not. And so we may be getting it wrong but if we’re getting it wrong, it’s his fault.
She even reiterated this ridiculousness:
If we have it wrong, you know, if we’re taking the wrong assumptions from the written word that we have, I blame the administration because they’re the ones that had the information. They’re the ones who represent the American people and they’re the ones who created this problem for themselves.

5. because FAUXNews are morons who are nothing but stenographers for the powerful
don't blame them for not fact checking, editing, checking sources, doing research, you know, reporting. They do nothing but parrot their Republican masters, of course they do the same for the "opposition" Right? That's the job of a network correspondent. According to Tim Russert.
