The Fox News interview with the author of Zealot, Reza Aslan, has gone viral and is openly considered Fox News’s most cringe-worthy interview. Interestingly, it has put the sales of Zealot through the roof and I’m sure Aslan and his publisher are more than pleased with Fox News’s stupidity.
For additional commentary on this, go to Slate and read: Reza Aslan Knew Exactly What He Was Doing in That Fox News Interview By Josh Voorhees. Fun stuff and Fox News certainly showed its lack of expertise and class. Fair and Balanced? (that deserves the classic “laughing my ass off and rolling on the floor” response but I refuse to use internet clichés).
