Why Jon Stewart Is More Relevant Than News Outlets

This takedown of Fox News and their fauxtrage over Benghazi should be the guiding principle for every news outlet with even a shred of intellectual honesty.

Why do we have to rely on Comedy Central for some honesty about the ridiculous Benghazi noise?

Every single Sunday show put a focus on the Benghazi non-issue, and Fox (I refuse to add the word "news" to that title) won't even air press conferences unless...Benghazi.

George Will even chimed in with some fairly strong criticism (for him), and ads are all over Google as if perhaps there was some coordinated effort to make a scandal where none exists.

=Politico did get it more or less right -- calling it the Benghazi Industrial Complex, though I'm pretty sure it's not Hillary's worst nightmare. Yet.

Take a minute and watch a refreshingly honest look at what Benghazi is -- and isn't -- thanks to Jon Stewart.
