I Hereby Proclaim Today to Be Carol Costello Day

Posted by on Tue, Oct 16, 2012 at 10:35 AM honor of the CNN anchor's take-no-bullshit approach to interviewing the American Family Association's head bigot Bryan Fischer (on whom she eventually, politely, hangs up). Enjoy!

Thank you, Towleroad.

"Mr. Fischer, thanks for sharing your views, I guess."

Good job, but when will they stop having these lunatics on their show?

If I didn't already have a husband I might be asking Carol Costello to be my wife right now.

@2 Giving people a podium for crazy vs shining a light on the crazy is completely different.

She doesn't validate his views and, in fact, calls him out on his lies before hanging up. If you give them airtime this is how to do it.

That was an entirely respectful and civil way to handle someone who had nothing more to say than, "Nuh-uh!!"

And despite how completely unreasonable and disrespectful Fischer and his ilk are, we're better served by remaining civil when we cut them off. And cut them off we should, probably sooner than 5 minutes.

@6, she didn't raise her voice in the least, and you accuse her of "shrieking"? Your moniker is right, you're really not listening.
