Greta Van Susteren scolded Jon Stewart over the supposed inconsistency regarding the Benghazi coverage.


When John Stewart made some waves by criticizing the Fox News commentary regarding Benghazi, Greta Van Susteren begged to differ with him. Fox News had started the Benghazi issue and Stewart wanted to know why the Republican opinions had died down during the Iraq War in the time of President Bush. John Stewart mocked the networlk's Benghazi coverage on Monday's night Daily Show.

"I commend you for finally getting in touch with your inner outrage," Stewart said. "Because if I remember correctly, in the previous decade it was an emotion you did not seem comfortable addressing or expressing."

Van Susteren wrote a blog on Tuesday to address Stewart's comments. She wrote, "Last night Jon Stewart opened his show with a segment about Fox News Channel’s aggressive coverage of Benghazi. Stewart’s criticism of Fox News Channel is that Fox News Channel is more aggressive about President Obama and Benghazi than it ever was about President Bush and Iraq."

Greta Van Susteren however added that virtually all the Democrats had voted in favor of waging the war. And she proceeded to say that though Jon Stewart was intelligent and witty, he was not always correct in his diagnosis of the situation at hand. 

She wrote a "note to Jon Stewart (who I think is smart and clever …but like the rest of us, not always right… but a comedian has, of course, way more latitude – we in the media should get it right)."

The Obama administration sought to blame the Benghazi bombing on a blasphemous anti-Muslim video whereas it seems the real reason was a failure of US policy in the country. Way back then, election time was near and it was a crucial move that saved the president from losing his nomination. 

"Besides the obvious — that almost all the Democrats in Congress voted for the war in Iraq and other media reporting – is my simple note to Stewart: 2 wrongs don’t make a right," Van Susteren wrote on her blog. 

Jon Stewart had been pretty vocal in his scathing remarks regarding the Republican sentiments in their own time. No weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq and the Republicans had blindly followed Bush as he paved the way to hell. They were not deaf, dumb or blind yet they had unquestioningly been led by the nose to an Armageddon thanks to Bush Junior. 

"OK, I think I see the problem," Stewart said, "You think people's failure to match your level of outrage is based on ignorance, that after nearly 100 network news stories, hundreds of cable news stories about Benghazi, 13 congressional hearings, 50 further congressional briefings and 25,000 pages of official findings concerning what happened in Benghazi, that if we all only knew about it, we would care."

Susteren said that while Stewart may be a sharp and clever fellow, he didn’t realize that two wrongs don’t make a right. The Democrats were as much responsible for the current situation as the Republicans. So there was no justification for the blame game that Stewart was playing here. The accusers had three fingers pointing at them while they pointed one fingers at the Republicans and Fox News. 

 

Greta Van Susteren may just have a point. It seems that most of the opposition between Democrats and Republicans is superficial and thus when push comes to shove they act in a similar manner as they did during the Iraq War.
