  •  But he went on FOX news? (0+ / 0-)

    Is that true?

    I don't watch that filth.

    It's good he regrets it though.

    Do you think he would go on FOX news again?

      but not to malign Costco. He presented lots of sides fairly without judgment (even presenting the atheist point of view without criticism). He went on because he saw it as an opportunity to share his faith, not because he had an agenda against Costco. That's very clear just from watching the video interview.

      Would he go on Fox news again? Most likely not, and certainly not over something like this. He regrets the way it spiraled out of control, and was very emotionally drained by the whole ordeal.

        I feel better now.  The media is truly an idiot circus.  FOX news completely distorted anything he would say.  It's plain as day reading the tabloid-like article I read about it.  They have all these cute little jokes in it.  It's disgusting what they do.

        would happen if he went on Fox News, right?  After all, that is what Fox News does.  No different than reaching into a tiger cage and expecting not to get bitten.

        You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.

          ...and ask yourself, "Why on earth did X agree to that interview?"?

          Lead pastors probably have a lot of justifiable confidence in their capacity to make their points clearly and persuasively. Not much in their experience prepares them for Fox News (or Comedy Central).

        •  Just because you presume people should know this (0+ / 0-)

          Doesn't mean they actually do.
