Fox Host Wants TV Meteorologists To Ask Obama About Benghazi Today (VIDEO)

What does the weather have to do with Benghazi?

Dana Perino, co-host of Fox News’ “The Five,” challenged meteorologists on Monday to ask Obama the tough questions on the 2012 attacks in Libya.

“Tomorrow, President Obama is going to do interviews with meteorologists all across the country about a new climate change report,” she said. “I hope they ask him about Benghazi.”

“Like, the weatherman from Montana should ask him about Benghazi,” she quipped. “That would be great. I dare you.”

Determined to inject the Benghazi attacks into the national conversation, Fox News has at least twice in the past week said they would only cover White House press conferences if a reporter there asked about Benghazi.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
