I've got to wonder if anyone over at Fox ever asked if something Bill Maher or any other left-leaning comedian said on the air was an indication of the rest of the media "coming around" on anything? I would guess the answer to that question is "No."

But that's the way Fox News Watch host Jon Scott opened up his show this Saturday, prior to yet another round of beating the dead Benghazi-gate horse. Fox does always have their double standards when it comes to "celebrities" though. If you're a Republican, you must be taken seriously at all times and might even end up being one of their idols, like the revisionist version of St. Ronnie they love to prop up. But if you're a liberal, you're going to find yourself either being completely ignored or scorned and mocked.
