Fox Nation Suggests Obama Doesn't Care About Deaths Of Diplomats In Libya
Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF
President Obama called the Libyan president to thank him for extending his condolences for the deaths of American diplomats in Benghazi. Fox Nation twisted this into a suggestion that Obama is indifferent to their deaths, or even grateful for them.
Fox Nation linked to a post by right-wing blogger Jim Hoft that criticized Obama for calling the Libyan president, Mohamed Magariaf, to "thank him for his support." Fox Nation used the headline "Obama Calls Libyan President to Thank Him After US Ambassador Murdered":
As USA Today reported, the White House said in a statement that Obama called Magariaf to thank him "for extending his condolences for the tragic deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, and two other State Department officers in Benghazi."
