David Brock, founder of the liberal Media Matters for America watchdog and Hillary Clinton supporter, is publishing an e-book that rebuts claims that the former secretary of state mishandled the Benghazi affair.
From the New York Times:
A Media Matters spokeswoman said the group was seeking to run the ad on Fox News this week, but the cable channel has not said whether it would accept it. The ad will run on stations nationally, with heavy airplay in the Washington market.
Mr. Brock says the group will also rebut attacks on President Obama; Susan E. Rice, the national security adviser; and others in the administration. But Mrs. Clinton is the focus.
“We all agree that politicizing a terrorist attack crosses a line, but that’s what Fox has done since tragedy struck in Benghazi,” Brock says in the ad, according to the Times. “You, the Fox viewer, lose out when you don’t get the facts, so we wrote a book about the Benghazi hoax. Get the facts for yourself.”
The book is titled “The Benghazi Hoax” and published on Oct. 16.
