Fox News wants meteorologists to ask Obama about Benghazi

The network's obsession hits a new low

Fox News is our go-to source for outrage over Benghazi. Not so much for information about climate change, a topic that the network, when it does bother to cover it, usually gets wrong.

Combine those two "quirks," and you get this hilarious bit of self-parody: Noting that President Obama had invited eight prominent TV meteorologists to the White House Tuesday to cover the release of a landmark report on climate change, "The Five" co-host Dana Perino dared them to ask the tough questions.

"Tomorrow, President Obama is going to do interviews with meteorologists all across the country about a new climate change report," Perino said. "I hope they ask him about Benghazi. Like the weatherman from Montana should ask him about Benghazi, that would be great. I dare you."

Get on it, Al Roker.
