Gutfeld warns Wednesday's Benghazi hearing ‘irrelevant’ if media isn’t interested

Greg Gutfeld explained Tuesday why the success of Wednesday’s House Oversight Committee hearing on last September’s terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi is reliant upon the media.

If the media decides it isn’t interested in the hearing, the Obama administration will not be held accountable for the Benghazi casualties, he said during his monologue on Tuesday’s episode of Fox News Channel’s “The Five.”

“As three key witnesses are about to testify regarding the attack on our consulate in Benghazi, one question remains — who the hell cares?” Gutfeld said. “I mean really, it happened such a long time ago, and what difference does it make? Which leads me to another question, what kind of story merits examination?”

“The thing is Benghazi isn’t complex; it’s very simple,” he continued. “People needed help on 9/11. They were denied. Four people died. The government falsely blamed a video. You can’t get any easier than that. That’s Scandal 101. Even Howie Kurtz could follow it, and he is an idiot. Especially compared with other massive scandals — Watergate: people lied, no one died,. Benghazi: the president chilled after people were killed. Wouldn’t that merit hard hitting reporting on par with Watergate?”

But Gutfeld predicted that since Obama is not a Republican, the scandal could ring hollow since the media seem to be invested in the president’s performance.

“Maybe if it were a Republican involved, not if it’s Obama,” Gutfeld said. “Since the media gatekeepers have so much invested in the president, his incompetence reflects their poor choices. They are the parents in the grandstand blaming the ump for their son’s ineptitude. They are the pals covering for their buddy when he’s out with another girl. They are the guy who holds on to your drugs, which is why when Obama’s first impulse was to falsely push a video, no one really cared.”

“So tomorrow, you can ask all the questions you want,” he continued. “But if the media decides it’s not as interesting as Valerie Plame, those questions are irrelevant. Maybe the administration will be held accountable. The media — never. Their only punishment is that they have to live with themselves, which might be punishment enough.”
