    Who simply ate Maher's lunch on every point concerning the Middle East, Benghazi and related matters. Greenwald has a column up at the Guardian summarizing the exchanges. Video below is basically the full segment.

    The resulting exchange, which was somewhat contentious and sustained for a show like this, can be seen on the recorder below. The segment begins at the 4:45 mark and our specific exchange begins a couple of minutes after that (the first segment on this video is a debate on whether Benghazi is now a "scandal" in light of newly released documents). Our exchange ends up, I believe, capturing the crux of this debate - which is essentially similar to the one I had recently with Sam Harris and friends - rather well:
    Cooke during the "what the hell is Benghazi-gate about" segment never answered the core question of just precisely where the scandal is found. He prattles on about the media ignoring the issue - yet never takes the opportunity to name the root issue raising hackles. Of course, he cannot, for there is no there, there.

    Greenwald though, he was on fire.
