If you tune into to Fox News at just about any time on any day, you’re likely to hear its host relentlessly screaming “BENGHAZI BENGHAZI BENGHAZI!!!” to the point that the network’s obsession over whether or not Obama White House officials tried to cover up the motivation for the attack on the U.S. consulate there has become a joke.

From the Washington Post:

Such expressions of outrage prompted (Jon) Stewart to observe a double standard. “You’re asking people to get outraged about an intelligence failure that tragically led to some Americans losing their lives. One intelligence failure,” railed the host, showing on the screen a document titled “BIN LADEN DETERMINED TO STRIKE IN US.” Stewart continued, “And then, I mean, imagine the outrage if there had been a second intelligence failure right after that one that tragically led to even more Americans losing their lives.” That one being the bogus reports of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction that premised the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq.
