Add another name to the list of people who won’t be invited on Fox News ever again. Author Thomas Ricks dared criticize the network for being a “wing of the Republican Party” and was immediately cut off on air.

Watch the video below to see how that went down.

The author was on Fox News to talk about the killing of 4 Americans in Banghazi, Libya, but he was trying to make a point that Fox was hyping up the killing, something it had not done in even more serious situations.

In doing so, it had lost all journalistic credibility, Ricks tried to argue.

“I think that the emphasis on Benghazi has been extremely political, partly because Fox was operating as a wing of the Republican Party,” he said, criticizing the network.

He was then immediately cut off but, judging by his incredibly classy reaction, he was totally expecting it.
