A murdered ambassador reduced to an answer on a game show? We would never have expected “Jeopardy,” a show ostensibly geared toward a mature, thinking audience, to stoop to something so low. Viewers were shocked and disgusted:

Absolutely shameful. But as vile as that was, one viewer pointed out something well worth noting:

  • Chris Valentine

    We should be grateful that the issue’s getting any play on television.

    • 96leroy

      My thoughts exactly. People watch Jeopardy. Maybe this will encourage a little research as to the failings of our government where Chris Stevens and 3 other Americans were murdered.

        I didn’t see the show. Did they mention that it just happened? Those people might have thought this was ancient history.

    Bengazi? What’s that? Never heard of it. Now back to my CNN/PMSNBC/ABC news viewing…

    • Warden Clyffe

      You likely never heard of Bengazi because there is no such place. How stupid are you if you can’t read the name and type it properly just moments later?

      • ked5

        have you ever heard of sarcasm?

  • Steve_J

    Maybe a question for 50 0r 100 years from now. But not two months from the events.

  • nc

    I’m surprised the question wasn’t “Who is Ben Ghazi?”

    Sorry for the black humor.

  • cgraham77

    The irony of this is that this information finds itself as obscure jeopardy trivia.

    How sad.

    Thats a tough category for Alex. Bet the question cards were all blank, or said [all response questions from contestant are correct…A “No Comment” response earns a daily double until the report is released].

    But in all seriousness – very poor form

  • Chico Escobar

    It is SICK that is is a trivia question!!!!!! holy crap this is (or should be) fresh news!

  • Chico Escobar

    sick like bad sick, not the good sick. m^k

  • Jim Denney

    It was a trick question too. Mr. Stevens fate was actually sealed by the Coward in Chief thousands of miles away in Washington, DC.

    gameshow gives benghazi scandal more airtime than mainstream media!

  • Gregg Hammerquist

    Well supposedly Alex Trebek is conservative, maybe he worked it in to get the word out.

    • http://www.cosmicgirl.net/ Cosmic Girl

      That’s what I was thinking.

      • TheOriginalDonald

        Maybe he swung conservative after the Pitfall fiasco #bouncedcheck

    • Baba Ghanoush

      Ditto

    • TheOriginalDonald

      or maybe some of the writers are conservative.

  • TJCrane_NCC1701

    This is what we’ve become, reduced to ???
    Americans were freaking MURDERED and it’s a freaking trivia question less than two months later.
    WTF does that say about the American media !

    Murdered Americans during a TERRORIST ATTACK and it’s an obscure factoid because the “media” suppressed the story.
    TASS/PRAVDA had absolutely no choice but to print the “PARTY” line. Death and Gulags awaited anyone who “spoke out”. The U.S. press does this willingly ! “Useful idiot” kinda way. YOU look it up to see which Commie first said and described “useful idiot”. I really don’t care to provide a link because YOU ARE a “useful idiot” if you can’t get to your favorite search engine !!

  • John (it true me am)

    I’d like to point out the bigger news here… It was a $1000 question. As in “hardest” in the category of the first round questions. In other words, they believed that it was obscure enough they thought that supposedly well educated people wouldn’t potentially know the answer.And it is a current event no less, not something circa JFK. Does that not just speak to the very heart of the lack of coverage?

    This is the only way ABC is reporting on Benghazi. Very sad.

    ask any college student who gets their news from the daily show,,,What is a Benghazi?who is Ben Gazi?

    • http://twitter.com/louv29 Dawn

      My college student gets his news from CNN and Fox News…checks into MSNBC just for fun. Voted for Romney for his very first vote ever and after the defeat this was his comment…”People need to step back and realize what a
      privilege it is to be able to vote and how many people have given their
      lives to be able to have that right. Maybe you should stop complaining
      and instead count your blessings and how much better of you are then
      alot of people in this world #America 2012″

      and yes I am a very proud mother 😉

    OMG!! This is disgusting, i had the misfortune to see a pic of the Ambassador being “dragged” through the street, it was so upsetting and i wish i could erase the image from my mind and some two bit show reduces the tragedy to a quiz show question!!!

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      Mary, the President watched better video footage than that from an overhead drone, and still did nothing and went to sleep for a trip to Vegas the next day.

      That’s the image I can’t erase.

  • putthehammerdown

    I saw This question and was stunned into insensibility. A cat-o-nine tails is required and I volunteer to administer the whippings.
    I’ll bring my own salt to throw on them……

    • ked5

      I’ll bring some iodine to treat the wounds.

  • skeptic23

    What is Washington?

  • orringtonmom (D)

    what was the catagory? government cover-ups? stories that were ignored during election season?

  • Kimberly Schutzenhofer

    First time Benghazi covered on a network show — wonder how many couldn’t answer the question because they don’t even watch MSM news that covered it up but from outlets like Jon Stewart or Steven Colbert.

  • ked5

    yeah, it’s tasteless. but it may well be the first some people have heard of benghazi. I’ve a sil who loves jeopardy – but hardly cared about the election or what is going on in the world..

  • http://twitter.com/billetdouxs susn

    isn’t this what Obama wants…Am. Stevens and Benghazi reduced to a Jeopardy question…proves the murders of four Americans and a government who refused to give them help
    is already history.

  • effinayright

    A few months ago Jeopardy had a question with the answer “What is Bain Capital?”.

    “I’ll take Political Pimping for $1,000, Alex.”

  • v1cious

    A Jeopardy question… is there anything you guys won’t bitch about?

    • Stephanie Warren

      it was a very tasteless question but I wouldn’t expect a lib like you to care.

      • v1cious

        Tasteless how? It’s a quiz show. You guys make it sound like it was an SNL skit or something.

  • Mickey James

    And you all keep supporting the liberals in Hollywood. Turn off the tube, disconnect the cable, tell your phone company to disconnect your phone, learn to be independent.
