The relentless Fox News propaganda about Benghazi never stops, and as all of the allegations pushed by Fox and the GOP (they’re pretty much the same thing, of course) have ended up thoroughly debunked, they’re now reduced to the mindless repetition of blatant lies, simply trying to trick anyone gullible or stupid enough to still respond with outrage to their Pavlovian Benghazi invocation: Fox’s Katie Pavlich Smears Clinton With Benghazi Lie.
Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich smeared Hillary Clinton by claiming that she lied in a speech honoring the victims of the September 2012 attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya. But Pavlich is distorting Clinton’s remarks.
Fox & Friends covered the announcement that NBC’s entertainment division is planning to air a new mini-series focused on Hillary Clinton’s “life as a wife, mother, politician and cabinet member” sometime before 2015. Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich used the segment as an opportunity to smear Clinton, saying:
PAVLICH: Although Diane Lane is a fantastic actress, I doubt she can act as well as Hillary Clinton did when she lied about that YouTube video in front of flag-draped caskets of Americans as they came home from being killed in Benghazi. So it’s going to be really hard for her to top that performance.
Hillary Clinton didn’t lie about anything, but Fox’s Katie Pavlich certainly is. In her remarks, Clinton was referring to the wave of protests and violence at US embassies across the Middle East after the spread of that infamous anti-Muslim video, and did not conflate the video with the Benghazi attack at all:
This has been a difficult week for the State Department and for our country. We’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with. It is hard for the American people to make sense of that because it is senseless, and it is totally unacceptable.
