Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Last night, Stephen looked at how Fox News has been continually pimping Benghazi as a major scandal.

Folks, I am interrupting tonight's regularly scheduled broadcast to bring you breaking news.  Repeat, tonight's Colbert Report will not be seen, because there has been a major development in the investigation into the tragic attack on our embassy in Benghazi, Libya.

Since last September, Fox News has been pursuing this story doggedly, to uncover how the administration blew it, when they blew it, why they blew it, and how they will continue to have blown it.  And most importantly, how is this car still burning?

I mean, it's been 8 months!  (wild audience cheering and applause)  For God's sake, the Maccabees' oil only lasted 8 days!  If that isn't suspicious, it's at least miraculous!

Well, buckle up folks.  Click, click.  Because, this story is about to take off like a rocket ship to planet Scandaltown.  

FOX NEWS FEMALE ANCHOR (5/7/2013): Well, tension is mounting in the nation's capitol.  That's where in just one day, we will hear the testimony of three whistleblowers about the Benghazi terror attack.

STEVE DOOCY (5/7/2013): What one says could shake up the Obama administration, bigtime.

BRIAN KILMEADE (5/7/2013): It's gonna be explosive.

FOX NEWS ANCHOR (5/7/2013): ... explosive ...

LOU DOBBS (5/6/2013): ... explosive indeed ...

FOX NEWS MALE ANCHOR (5/6/2013): These are big, big charges.

SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM, R-SC (5/6/2013): The dam's about to break on Benghazi.

SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM, R-SC (5/5/2013): It's gonna make you mad.

It's gonna make me mad?

Oh.  Oooh.  Ooooooooh!  I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve, who's about to get the bike he asked for, and it's on fire!

So, just what are these whistleblowers going to say?

CHRIS WALLACE (5/5/2013): We don't know what these guys are actually going to say.
Folks, this is the best possible kind of political story.  We have no idea what's in it, and it's going to be explosive.  It's the Taco Bell of breaking news!  (audience cheering and applause)  Mmm, could go for a little Bell.  I could make a run for the border.

So Jim, let's start the Benghazi countdown to something that will make you mad clock.

Folks, this is great.  It is win-win.  Because, if tomorrow I don't learn something that makes me mad, I will be furious!  (said gleefully)

Video below the fold.

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).
