    ‘…local control as opposed to Federal control…’

    It seems Ms. O'Donnell remains ignorant of the fact that local jurisdictions may not decide who will or will not have his civil rights or access to the laws of that jurisdiction.

    One can’t ‘defend’ Constitutional principles if he has no idea what they are.

    You mean her instinct to call what he did "borderline sexual harassment?"

    Watching that video, it's obvious Piers was pushing the issue even after it was clear O'Donnell was uncomfortable with that line of questioning. She was forthcoming at first, but then it got a little obnoxious when he kept asking her those types of sexual questions.

    I know because O'Donnell's a Tea Party Republican, and liberals think when journalists treat interviews with conservatives as a confrontation that they're doing the Lord's work, that badgering her over questions like that is completely in-bounds. But being a professional means letting the subject present him- or herself in the best light and not trying to embarrass them, which is clearly what Piers is trying to do.

    Appears you believe a journalist is supposed to be a public relations specialist. No... the role of an interviewer is to reveal what the interviewee is thinking so that the target audience can better analyze the news for themselves.

    He asked her a personal question asking if she ever double-clicked her mouse then kept hammering her on a topic she wasn't comfortable with.

    I call that rude.

    After telling someone the third time that you didn't want to talk about their favorite topic of masturbation or buggering....and they still pressed for an answer that wasn't coming....I would have left too. I'm sure she had better things to do.
