Some comedy gold from our friend Ben Shapiro.

And also a great example of how I like interviewers to handle political figures.

Eh, I generally hate these types of interviews where it's just going over old quotes and trying to make people look bad.  No one gets any more information out of it.  Was there anything gained by trying to undercut a person's message that political anger is a bad thing by the old "hypocrite" cry?

In general, I'm just tired of the whole "owned" culture we've got.

Pointing out that Ben Shapiro himself has contributed to this problem is not undercutting the message, and it would be terrible journalism to ignore those examples. If Ben Sharpiro looks bad here he himself and the way he handled the interview is to blame.

I too dislike "x got DESTROYED" headlines, which is part of why I posted the original interview and not one of the reaction videos.
