    Wow. That SH guy got his ass handed to him on a platter. He sounded like a complete idiot. So much for secular "rationalists".

    I know. Isn't that funny?

    Makes you wonder exactly what would be in a book so pompously titled "The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason". Must be a horror novel.

    This is a fake interview. The interviewer is not even close to objective, he is just using the interview to promote his beliefs and belittle those he does not like.

    It's from Dennis' radio talk show, he never claimed or even pretended to be objective, and it certainly isn't fake.


    Anyways, it says, right at the begining:

    Choosing your victim like this, setting things up so you can expouse your own views, is a "fake" interview. It was not an interview at all.

    He had a guy on his radio show. Dennis is well known to be a conservative and religious talk show host. This guy came on because of the book he wrote, and Dennis wanted to talk about it. What is your problem with that?

    The radio show exists, Dennis exists, his guest exists, [ame=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0393035158/qid=1095017726/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl14/103-9043501-4853404?v=glance&s=books&n=507846]the book[/ame] exists. I don't understand how it's fake.

    If the guy can't defend himself properly perhaps he shouldn't have written the book.

    Because they didn't really discuss the book, the interviewer (I use the term loosly) started it off by presenting his own views and put the "guest" on the defensive without even allowing him to present much of a position. That's not an interview - it's just using a guest as a means of espousing your own (the host's) positions.

    Such "interviews" should be ignored, and the interviewer should not be listened to.

    Wade.
