Ouch! Pulitzer Prize Winner Calls Out FOX NEWS On FOX NEWS

Thomas Ricks Accuses Fox News Of 'Operating As A Wing Of The Republican Party' (VIDEO)



A Fox News interview ended rather abruptly on Monday after a guest took not one but two jabs at the network hosting him

Co-anchor Jon Scott interviewed Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Thomas Ricks, who has covered the military for decades, about his new book "The Generals." Scott asked Ricks weigh in on the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and Sen. John McCain's criticisms of Amb. Susan Rice.

11. Update:..

UPDATE: According to the New York Times' Brian Stelter, a Fox News staffer told Ricks he was rude following the interview. Ricks said that he thinks the hit lasted "about half as long as planned."


"Rude" of Tom Ricks to point out that fox is a wing of the recon party!

14. Nothing like letting his freedom of speech reign free!

They are resorting to censorship to maintian a "fair and balanced" view.

19. That's a classic. I love the "Miss USA" bit. She should have known then it was not going to

go well. But he skillfully led her down the proverbial garden path.

16. He won't be asked back again, live anyway.

Any future appearances will be taped so they can be edited. It's happened a few times to some of our liberal pundits.

18. "When you have four people dead for the first time in more than 30 years"

For the first time in 30 years? Has Jon Scott been living under a rock? Of maybe because one of the person's killed was an ambassador it makes the loss of those four lives more important than the thousands of others who have died? Good on Tom Ricks for calling him out on that.

26. That was a thing of beauty

I can imagine some idiot shrieking into Jon Scott's earpiece "GET HIM OFF! GET HIM OFF!!!!"

Ricks not only blamed those bozos once on the air, he did it twice.
