Stephen Colbert Mocks Fox News Over Libya Questions (VIDEO)

Stephen Colbert took a slightly different approach to mocking Fox News on Wednesday.

The host took aim at conservative criticism of the Obama administration's response to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. He said that there remain "troubling questions" about the intelligence, which "Fox News has not been afraid to ask 24 hours a day for the past six weeks."

Colbert played a reel of clips of Fox News anchors repeatedly asking who was responsible for the attack and whether the intelligence-gathering was botched. He took special delight in a Bret Baier special called "Death and Deceit in Benghazi," which featured the Fox News host walking in the shadows with his voice echoing off his marble surroundings.

Then walking out from the shadows of his set, Colbert asked his own barrage of questions. "Why was the intelligence so slow to come out and more importantly, if you put a statement in the form of a question, is that journalism?" he wanted to know.

Colbert meandered all over his studio — into the audience, backstage, into his bathroom, and onto a treadmill — in search of some answers, and even donned a top hat in the process.
