The Article on the story
Ben Shaprio went on the BBC to talk about his new book. The interviewer was a right-winger named Andrew Neil. Neil works for The Spectator and holds conservative positions.
In the interview, Neil asks Shapiro about his support of the new Georgia abortion law, why he complains about ugly discourse, but at the same time creates Youtube videos entitled “Shapiro destroys transgenderism and abortion”, and why he calls all Palestine people terrorists and evil. Shapiro instead does what any slimy political pundit does and attacks the questioner and denies what he said.
Neil was professional throughout the interview and didn’t play Shapiro’s dodge game. Shapiro kept on calling Neil a hack, a loser with no followers, a left-winger, and wanted him to acknowledge he was a member of the left.
In the video, TYT points out that Shapiro’s denials were false. He did say those things. I posted an article below, showing Shapiro apologizing to Neil, admitting he was wrong and didn’t know about his political background.
Personally, I have never been a fan of Shapiro. Some people think he’s a political genius, because he talks really really fast, but in reality, he doesn’t really have anything intelligent to say and simply a religious right guy, obsessed with gays and trans folks.
The interview also showed how much American journalism has decayed. Most of our political pundits go to their safe spaces and refuse to answer questions which challenge their beliefs.
