Fox News Denies Pushing Benghazi Conspiracy with Benghazi Conspiracy (Video)

| by Michael Allen

President Obama called out Fox News yesterday for pushing Benghazi conspiracy theories during an interview with Bill O'Reilly before the Super Bowl.

According to Mediaite.com, O'Reilly insisted Americans didn't know the whole story about the Benghazi terrorist attack, to which President Obama replied, “They believe [that] because folks like you are telling them that. These kinds of things keep on surfacing in part because you and your TV station will promote them."

MediaMatters.org reports today that "Fox & Friends" claimed that Fox News did not push any Benghazi conspiracy theories by repeating a Benghazi conspiracy theory (video below).

First, Fox & Friends Steve Doocy falsely claimed that the president refused to answer questions about the Benghazi attack, but instead "blames Fox News."

After showing a clip of Obama and O'Reilly, Doocy repeated the Benghazi conspiracy theory in defense of Fox News, "We still haven't gotten good answers."

"It would have been great if Bill had a little more time, I'm sure he woulda said to the president, 'By the way Mr. President, where were you exactly, the night of the Benghazi?' Because that's one of the many questions we've never gotten an answer from the president," said Doocy.

The answer as to where President Obama was that night, Sept. 12. 2012, was answered years ago when this picture (below) was released and posted on the White House Flickr page.
