    Man City's spirit and belief is back, says Pellegrini

    Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini hailed his team's spirit and belief after Saturday's 3-2 win over Aston Villa and said those qualities had been lacking in recent Premier League games. The champions let slip a two-goal lead, given them by Sergio Aguero and Aleksandar Kolarov, as Villa pegged the hosts back with second-half strikes from Tom Cleverley and Carlos Sanchez. Fernandinho then stabbed home the winner in the 89th minute to save City's blushes and help them leapfrog Arsenal …

Washington, Nov. 27 (ANI): An interview on Fox News Channel ended abruptly after an author accused the network of hyping the killing of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, attack and 'operating as a wing of the Republican Party'.

The charges were made by military historian Thomas Ricks, a veteran newspaper reporter and author of 'The General', who went on Fox News to discuss the fallout from the Sept. 11 attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

According to the New York Daily News, four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, were killed in the assault, which has since been determined to have been a terrorist attack.

Republicans have tried to hold President Barack Obama's 'feet to the fire' regarding what he may have known regarding the sequence of the deadly events, the report said.

Pressed on the Benghazi attack by host Jon Scott, Ricks said the attack had been turned into GOP 'hype'.

Challenged on this claim, he continued by saying that "I think that the emphasis on Benghazi has been extremely political, partly because Fox was operating as a wing of the Republican Party."

At this point, Scott very quickly and very awkwardly ended the conversation, the report added. (ANI)
