Andrea Tantaros Becomes First Fox Host to Compare MH370 to Benghazi

It was only a matter of time. At 5:42pm ET on Thursday, March 20th, Andrea Tantaros became the first Fox News host to discover a comparison between the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. During a segment on The Five about the distressed families of the missing passengers, Tantaros remarked that they reminded her of the families of the four Americans killed in Benghazi.

After playing a montage of the reactions from loved ones of the people on board Flight 370, host Kimberly Guilfoyle imagined what it must be like for these people to still have no idea what happened to the passengers nearly two weeks later.

“Think how long it took for them to get this kind of media attention,” Tantaros added. “I mean, living in Malaysia, the government seemingly ignored these people, they didn’t want their stories to get out. They weren’t talking to them.”

After warning co-host Bob Beckel to plug his ears lest he explode with rage, Tantaros said it “feels like the families of Benghazi, just saying. And we’re better than that.”

For his part, Beckel didn’t react much. Hey, at least she didn’t blame the plane’s disappearance on Obama’s handling of Benghazi like how Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) did for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
