| The Fair and Balancing Act
"The Five" is presently one of FOX News' most successful analysis programs. It follows the general tone of the network – criticize wicked "Democrat" people and their "Liberal Media." A sampling of shows finds the discussion focusing on issues related to President Barack Obama. Every story presents the President in a negative light. A typical telecast finds the panel discussing what would normally be a positive story concerning Obama – the capture of the terrorist who is believed to be the mastermind behind the Benghazi attack which killed four US diplomats. There is no credit given to Obama for commanding the criminal's capture. Instead, "The Five" is critical of the terrorist being put on trial. The panel believes he should be put in "Gitmo" for life or killed without a trial...

Most interesting was the speculation that the terrorist would likely be "paid" to say he was influenced by "a video" to attack US diplomats. This was reported last month by The New York Times. It did not receive attention on FOX News because, frankly, it does not fit their narrative. It is interesting to see it mentioned on "The Five" in this manner – most likely, they are setting up viewers to disbelieve the terrorist's testimony, if he happens to mention the video as an influence. Of course, this is a reference to Muslims around that time being offended by a "YouTube" video. This may be why the panel opposes a trial...

Previously, this program followed the FOX News speculation – most evident on other programs – that the capture of the Benghazi terrorist (Ahmad Abu Khattala) was "orchestrated" by Obama to assist Hillary Clinton, who had just begun a book tour promoting her "Hard Choices" (in reality, this "book tour" is a preview of her likely Presidential run – which could be said to prove both sides think we're stupid). The most dominant host of "The Five" is snickering Greg Gutfeld, who also toes the party line on "Red Eye". To laughably prove their claim as "fair and balanced" the show includes rotund Liberal Democrat strategist Bob Beckel. To be perfectly honest, Mr. Beckel's primary function on "The Five" is to make the majority Conservative Republicans look young and hip. Mission accomplished.
