CNN Interviews Benghazi Suspect, Makes News On Other Channels

CNN’s Arwa Damon had an interview with a person of interest in the Benghazi consulate attacks that resulted in the death of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya. The man, who has been mentioned by U.S. authorities, said he was never contacted by either the Libyan or American governments, but would be happy to talk to them if they did.

The interview ended up making news on other channels. “The Five” incorporated it into a segment on the attack, even as CNN aired excerpts from the interview, though the Fox News show didn’t identify CNN, lest someone change the channel.

Update: Credit where it is due, “On the Record” host Greta Van Susteren did note that CNN had the interview, as she mentions in a GretaWire post here.

WATCH:


“Fox & Friends” also discussed the interview in a segment about “DC Scandals.” The show also declined to mention that CNN was the channel that had the interview.
