Fox News cut away from President Obama's press conference with German chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday because people weren't asking Obama questions about Benghazi.
Obama's conference came just as House Republicans announced that they were forming a select committee to further investigate the 2012 attacks, but Fox News apparently grew frustrated that he was getting questions on the situation in Ukraine and the botched execution in Oklahoma. When a German reporter stood up, Fox News host Harris Faulkner told viewers that the network was cutting away, and that it would stay away unless someone asked about Benghazi.
"We are not anticipating that that [question] would be about the situation with Benghazi, which is breaking news since the president has been talking, really," she said. "So if in fact somebody throws him a question on this topic, we'll go back to that joint news conference...we're going to move on here with what is breaking."
The network stayed true to its word, and didn't return to the press conference.
