Two things

Just a couple things here, Fair 'n' Balanced Network:

1) Are you sure you don't mean "blaming film for Benghazi," rather than "blaming Benghazi for film"?

2) Spinwise -- gosh, what was it that appeared under the hed "Muslims Angered by Anti-Islam Film Posted to Web Attack US Embassies" at the top of the Fox homepage on Sept. 12, 2012? Could it have been ...

URGENT: Unconfirmed reports of US envoy, three others killed in attack on American embassy in Libya as Muslims angered by online film ridiculing prophet Muhammed launch violent and deadly protests in Libya and Egypt.

That's going to be a challenge going forward, I think. However exclusive your exclusive might be:

Newly released emails on the Benghazi terror attack suggest a senior White House aide played a central role in preparing former U.N. ambassador Susan Rice for her controversial Sunday show appearances -- where she wrongly blamed protests over an Internet video.

More than 100 pages of documents were released to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. Among them was a Sept. 14, 2012, email from Ben Rhodes, an assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for strategic communications.

The Rhodes email, with the subject line: "RE: PREP Call with Susan: Saturday at 4:00 pm ET," was sent to a dozen members of the administration's inner circle, including key members of the White House communications team such as Press Secretary Jay Carney.

... Benghazigate boils down to a claim that the Kenyan usurper and his minions said the same thing Fox News did, only four days later. Which makes neither the usurper nor the minions look especially bright, but it ought to leave Fox News in a slightly uncomfortable position as well. Deranged Muslim hordes seemed like such a good idea at the time.
