Fox Finally Finds A Non-"Bombshell" Benghazi Story

Since 2013, Fox News has run Benghazi reports that they've called "bombshells." Now that U.S. Special Operations Forces have captured Ahmed Abu Khattala, suspected leader of the Benghazi attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in 2012, suddenly Fox isn't referring to this report as a "bombshell." Instead, Fox is wondering about the "timing" of the arrest. Media Matters has compiled a video montage of two years of Fox "bombshell" Benghazi reports, followed by today's distinctly lukewarm announcement, with one announcer concluding, "Good news there, I guess." Is Fox actually unhappy about today's news? Does it have anything to do with the fact that President Obama approved the Special Operations mission? Watch:
