A Fox News host compared the search for a missing airliner to the conservative network’s never-ending examination of the Benghazi massacre.
After showing reactions by family members of passengers aboard Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 on Thursday evening’s “The Five,” host Kimberly Guilfoyle imagined what they must be going through.
“Imagine if you’re one of those family members and you know that another country has the means, has the ability, has the economic wherewithal to actually get this investigation going in the right direction,” she said, “where you can get some answers for these poor people, how frustrating. It’s like having a cure for a disease and you just can’t reach out and take it.”
Co-host Andrea Tantaros agreed.
“Watching the footage, and watching the footage of that Malaysian woman that was being played over and over last night, it’s just so sad,” Tantaros said. “But think how long it took for them to get this kind of media attention. Living in Malaysia, the government seemingly ignored these people, they didn’t want their stories to get out, they weren’t talking to them.”
She warned co-host Bob Beckel, the show’s Democratic foil, to plug his ears with his fingers.
“They were saying, ‘No one has come to my house, no one has told me what has happened,” Tantaros said. “Bob, get ready, put these in your ears. Feels like the families of Benghazi, just saying. And we’re better than that.”
