Media Matters’ Eric Boehlert smells a Benghazi conspiracy … at Fox News!/EricBoehlert/status/261071505159516160

Spin, Soros monkey! Spin!

After learning that the White House and State Department knew within two hours that Islamist militants claimed responsibility for the deadly Sept. 11 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Boehlert has the conspiracy all figured out.

Pay no attention to the facts behind the curtain. The news isn’t that the White House and State Department lied to Americans when they blamed a crummy video for the “spontaneous protest” that killed four Americans; it’s that Fox News is falling “down into the Libya conspiracy rabbit’s hole.”

A few disgusted Twitter users called him out on his absurd and desperate spin.

@ericboehlert It’s not a conspiracy when the facts are laid out in front of you, sugar-lips.
