Tom Ricks owns FOX in the shortest interview ever.

FOX News has been harping Benghazi non-stop lately.  In a continuation of that effort, they invited military reporter Tom Ricks onto the show for an interview.  The interview lasted two questions, during which time Ricks told the anchor that FOX is over-hyping the tragedy as an arm of the Republican Party.

That was enough for the anchor to conclude things after little more than a minute with a “Tom Ricks, thanks very much for joining us.”  Ricks responds with a self-satisfied “You’re welcome.”

You know how sometimes inflection can change the meaning of a phrase?  It’s possible to say “I love you” while meaning “I wish nothing but ill upon you.”  When Ricks said “You’re welcome” all I heard was “Fuck you” and it made me smile.

FOX would later claim that Rick apologized in the newsroom, to which Ricks would say

“Please ask Mr. Clemente what the words of my supposed apology were. I’d be interested to know,” Ricks said. “Frankly, I don’t remember any such apology.”

Awkward.  🙂  Well played, Mr. Ricks.
