She really nailed the key points, I thought- so articulately and clearly.
naah, he was too sensible to rise to it, hard to satire.
Yes, difficult to satire...
The argument she makes leads on to all sorts of equivalent arguments
Only a British historian could write about British history
Presumably no one can write about Latin now
An economist can't write about communism unless (s)he is one
Good to see the quality on interviewers in the US
Surely you aren't assuming ALL interviewers in the US are this Foxed-up? (Some are even worse! Arrrrghhhhh!!)
Many of us must watch Rachel Maddow, Stephen Colbert, and the Daily Show just to keep our sanity.
I think she gave the guy excellent PR.
I would explain more about it, Lindy but I am not American so I can't.
Best not to try (unless you can do it in one of the Native American languages, of course). It's one of the mysteries of the universe. Apparently nearly half of Americans still think Obama isn't really an American, and that he's an atheist Muslim Communist!
Of course he's American. Who else would think that being President of the USA is a good idea?
Can't fight your logic, there!
I don't think any of us is in a valid position to criticise Fox - unless one of us is actually a reporter for them, of course.
He was amazingly restrained, keeping just short of shouting at her or walking off.
What a stupid woman. No wonder the Americans are so screwed up about religion.
Both he and his book sound interesting. I was as impressed by how articulate he was as I was by his obvious intelligence and scholarship.
I am always amused by how upset (or even outraged) devout but not-very-bright devotees of a religion get when confronted by a well-informed and objective analysis of their faith, even if it is a favourable one.
It's almost a case of "Please don't spoil things and upset me by actually proving that my religion is true; I just want simply to believe it."
