TICK TOCK!!! FOX BOOTLICKERS!!!
A claim pushed dozens of times by Fox News that security forces were ordered to "stand down" during the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks on a U.S. diplomatic facility collapsed after the commander of those security forces testified that he received no such order.
More than a month after the attacks in Benghazi killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, Fox began airing accusations that security forces present in Libya at the time were ordered to "stand down" by the Obama administration. Fox's confused coverage over the months claimed that both a reaction force that was dispatched to Benghazi and suffered two casualties while trying to defend the facility, and a group of four special forces troops in Tripoli received "stand down" orders. This accusation was given new fuel after former Deputy Chief of Mission Gregory Hicks May 8 remarks made before a congressional committee appeared to confirm claims that Lt. Col. Gibson, who commanded a small team of special forces troops in Tripoli, was ordered to "stand down." Fox baselessly speculated that either President Obama or then-Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta gave the alleged order.
A search of the Nexis database shows that the accusation that these security forces were ordered to "stand down" was made in 85 segments on the network's primetime shows by Fox hosts, contributors, guests, and in video accompanying news reports and commentary.
But now even Republicans are admitting that a "stand down" order was never given. According to The Associated Press, Gibson told a Republican-led congressional committee on June 26 that he was never ordered to "stand down."
What difference does it make? The difference between an actual "stand down" order and just failing to take the situation seriously when additional security was requested brought the same results, four dead Americans. Why were they covertly running arms to the Syrians from Libya anyway?

If you say so GBF, but i disagree. They are a corporation made up of many people with good to great paying jobs competing in a market of multitudes of competition. They have some very conservative viewpoints represented by some of their hosts, and liberal viewpoints by others. They cover all of the news of the day, just like the other networks, but sometimes cover stories that the others try to move past quickly or not cover at all because they make democrats look like idiots, which most of them are. Our constitution guarantees them that right and they do it way better then anybody else does and their ratings reflect that. To make the kind of foolish statements you and others have made about the network simply exposes you for the biased, partisan, subjective liar that you are. You cant stand their success and know you could never compete with it in a million years, so your choice is to run your childish little hate campaign. Have fun GBF, I know how much pleasure you take in tearing down what you don't like, and you don't like so many things, including half our country.
