NOTE: UPDATED VERSION 9:10 am Pacific. Last night, on Fox New's The Five, Eric Bolling claimed the Benghazi terrorist attack happened before Obama got Osama Bin Laden. That didn't sit right with Dana Perino, one of the other panelists and she corrected the mis-informed Mr. Bolling. But that didn't stop there. Bolling was amazed. That was news to him. According to The Raw Story:
“What, it was after?” “Yes, much after,” Dana Perino can be heard saying. “My bad,” Bolling said, “I take it back.” “But a great point, if it were true,” Perino added.
This lead Stephen Colbert to weigh in on his show regarding this gaff.
“Yes,” Colbert replied, “that’s undeniable. A great point, and a fantastic new motto: ‘Fox News: Fair and Balanced. A Great Point If It Were True.”
Now, truth isn't always on the side of good reporting or story telling. And so I'll add the conversation that transpired during the commercial break which immediately followed. Eric Bolling:
Right after break, I'm going to bring up the Hillary Clinton thing where she refused to put Boko Haram on the U. S. Terrorist list back in 2012.
You have some news on that?
News? I'll say. This isn't the first time Hillary pulled strings to keep them off a list. Back in 2012 the Rock and Roll people were actually considering inducting Boko Haram into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Imagine, one big hit and she tried to get them into those hallowed halls.
What are you talking about?
Boko Haram... Whiter Shade of Pale... Don't you know anything? Before they were a terrorist group, they were rock and rollers. Symphonic Rock.
Eric, you're mixing up Procol Harum with Boko Haram. But another good point if it were true.
Great. Then I'll lead off with it out of commercial.
