Tom Ricks Has Interview With Fox News Abruptly Ended By Jon Scott. Author Tom Ricks writes an online blog for ForeignPolicy.com called, “The Best Defense.”
Tom Ricks is also a former Washington Post reporter and author of best-selling books Fiasco and The Generals, briefly spoke with Fox News’ Jon Scott about the death of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya.
Ricks told Scott “I think that the emphasis on Benghazi has been extremely political, partly because Fox was operating as a wing of the Republican Party,” Ricks said.
“When Mr. Ricks ignored the anchor’s question, it became clear that his goal was to bring attention to himself and his book,” Fox News executive Michael Clemente said.
Ricks told Politico he “saw some surprised faces in the hallway” after his interview with Scott. “One staff person said she thought I had been rude. My feeling was that they asked my opinion and I gave it.”
