read this before watching so i had to laugh when right off the bat he uses a red herring:

"republicans have no ideas, all the new ideas are coming from the left."

"that's not true, republicans are debating about healthcare and global warming."

I didnt see him getting "DESTROYED!!!". This BBC "journalist" insulted his political veiwpoints and cherry picked shit he said years ago to make him look stupid(Im prochoice BTW). I think this BBC journalist got destroyed and called out, if anything. I dont really know either of them, nor care to, point being is that I am neutral and I dont think this Shiparo guy got "DESTROYED". Fake News!

would make more sense if you did know shapiro. this is exactly what he does, so having his favorite logic turned back on him is brilliant.

Again: Ben Shapiro is a stupid person's idea of a smart person. This debate club highschool boy got his ass handed.

Furthermore he said what he said... why not hold him accountable?

From what little I do know of him, I know he is not a politician, who cares what he says, thats like picking shit Alex Jones said 10 years ago and saying he got destroyed, who the fuck cares? How about going after what Trump said 10 years ago, you think anyone including Trump would give a shit besides the people who hate them? No. Both these fucks are annoying as hell, fuck em both. I just dont see how he got destroyed. This to me looks like pandering to a particular group o fpeople who hate Shiparo, becuase that is the only group who would care, and coming from a "conservative" news org is fishy as hell, looks like a last grasp for ratings or switching sides to me, aren't conservatives usually prolife people? So why call them barbaric and shit? Kinda looks like they are trying to push Shiparo's buttons. I wouldv'e walked out too if someone asked me to do an interveiw and was suppossed to be alligned with my political veiws are starts insulting me and whatnot. This just looks like fakenews bullshit to me. I dont really trust anything coming from the BBC anyway.

When I was in Britain for two weeks I was shocked at the state of their journalism. Their TV news shows, their newspapers - conservative and liberal - they are all like this. They are all trolling gotcha oooooh lala type shit. It was fucked up reading their newspapers - the police will harrass you for misgendering on twitter but their press can spin all kinds of speculative and slanderous innuendo as long as it deals with public figures. I know you're saying how is that different from here? North America is catching up since 2016, but haven't reached the level of corn I saw in British journalism when I visited in 2012.

 

And to his credit, Shapiro admits himself that he got "destroyed". Wasn't prepared, got thrown because he assumed it wouldn't be adversarial, and he paid the price. She should have known - this is payback for Pierce Morgan and Ben should have seen it coming.

Ya he did this to Morgan a few years ago when Morgan wasn't prepared - behold the famous "standing on the graves" destruction of a man who wasn't expecting that angle:

God damn, That was pretty brutal. 

I remember Fox news doing this to a lot of people from the left years ago, they've since stopped most of that sort of shit. Or at least I think they did. I've always wondered why someone would go on one of those shows to be interupted and yelled at and cut off, did not seem too civil at all and a waste of time. Must have got good ratings though. Here's the thing you gotta remember about all of this, the lamestream legacy media are scared shitless of independant journalist, their ratings are tanking, less and less people are watching them on cable networks, anyone with a youtube account can become a journalist now and get more veiwers then they can. Keep that in mind when watching this shit and it starts to make sense.

Highly doubtful, Morgan works for a different channel.

Intelligence is a measurement of cognitive capability. If you want to add additional qualifiers to that definition that's your business. Ben Shapiro is an extremely intelligent man and you just called me stupid. No I do not support the Zionist Manifest Destiny horseshit. Call Ben foolish if you want, or call him dishonest, but it's a real mistake to call him stupid, or me for that matter.

Intelligent people fuck up, make mistakes, and do foolish things. They get overconfident, comfortable, and take themselves for granted.

This interview exposes him for the high school debate hero that he is. He tried his usual tricks but they didn't work when the host didn't play into it. Now he'll go away & whinge more about liberal media bias, ignoring that he got owned & doing zero personal reflection & his followers will back him up - that's the nature of cults.

When it comes down to it, the guy's full of shit.

Agreed. Leading questions lead nowhere. But a sense of humor on either side would have won

This is what he always does: make as witty and snide as wrong remarksthat cannot be debunked in a heartbeat, if called out he counterattacks, sometimes on a ridiculous level, and most of the time (not here) he gets a response that brings opponents down to his level, where he is very hard to beat.

 

All his remarks on climate change or transgender issues are lacking scientific base but a rectifying reply would take so long that it becomes boring to the audience and gives way too many chances for him to interrupt throwing another red herring into the discussion, of course he knows that and uses it exremely well.

He's full of clever tricks & unloaded a lot of them in this interview. Notice his final fallback was to attack the motivation of the host. He also used it during the conversation, calling him left-wing when the guy's a conservative journalist.

Oh goddamnit, I broke down and watched some of this little shitheads "destroyed" videos. Why give him a platform? Just ignore the little shit. Who the hell gave a him a platform anyway?

Why am I not surprised you don't get it. 

He wrote a book "exposing" the "bully methods" of the leftists.

He uses similar methods when talking to people who don't share his opinion (mostly, of course, from the left). 

This wasn't "giving a platform" to the twat (if it were intended it would have failed) but quite the opposite.

 

The funny thing is that (unbiased) people with a little more than half a brain see right through him

Hence subroutine's description is so cock on and maybe can be made only marginally better: Ben Shapiro is a stupid right winger's idea of a smart person.

The PR man behind the Shapiro brand is Hollywood producer Jeremy Boreing.

The Wilks Brothers (oil tycoons / Zionist Christian extremists) gave them their startup capital.

The comments here are even funnier than how the shapiro cunt winds himself when treated like he likes to treat others, especially when they are not as witty as he is.
