Greta Van Susteren reveals ‘weird’ WH arm-twisting to get Fox to back down on Benghazi reporting

Fox News Channel host Greta Van Susteren told her viewers the White House asked her to tamp down Pentagon reporter Jennifer Griffin’s investigation of the Benghazi affair, which she could only describe as “weird.”

In her “Off the Record” segment on Friday, she reviewed how Fox News has been the only major news organization to fearlessly pursue the Obama administration’s stonewalling of the September 11, 2012 attack on America’s Libyan consulate and the deaths of four brave men.

After characterizing the quest for getting information as “pulling teeth,” and the Susan Rice/Obama sideshow blaming the YouTube video for provoking the assault, Van Susteren said, “A few weeks later, when Fox news reporter Jennifer Griffin said she was told there was a stand-down order at Benghazi, I got a weird call from the Obama administration trying to pressure me to get Jennifer to back down on her report.”

“I thought the call from the Obama administration was dirty,” she concluded. “Incidentally, I don’t control my colleagues and they don’t control me.”

    At least she went public and exposed the Obama administration for trying to manage the news.
