From the September 14 edition of Fox News' Outnumbered:

GUY BENSON: I'm going to start with Christiane Amanpour. Because that performance was spectacularly hack-tastic. She went though, as a journalist, and scolded journalists for asking questions and seeking transparency. And later in her little lecture and soliloquy that she gave, she went on to go back to the good old days where media covered up ailments for other presidents like FDR and JFK back in the day. Like -- it is amazing to me that she attempted a spin on Hillary's behalf that her own campaign didn't even have the balls to try because it was so ludicrous. They admitted they should have been more transparent. And here's a journalist making excuses they shouldn't have been that transparency isn't issue. Which, apparently, Lawrence O'Donnell agrees with over on MSNBC. What is this about? 

MELISSA FRANCIS: Anytime you tell journalists to stop inquiring, you are not a journalist anymore, you're an advocate, right?
