She obviously didn't do this interview on her way home from a MENSA meeting.
No, last nights Geraldo interview with Marion Berey was easily the most embarrassing interview on Fox. Anyone else see it? A drunk Marion Barry dropping a “bullshit” and saying the government was trying to get him. I felt so sad for him.
Well, why would a muslim write a book about Jesus?
Don’t know about the book or it’s arguments, but still didn’t know more about the book from this interview.
Truthfully, it sounds like the producer wanted some controversy so told the newswoman to bang away at the one talking point about his Muslim-ness and ignored everything else.
Stupid television in persuit of ratings. Eh.
Goodness, that was awful.
I feels somehow stupidder then i wuz after watching this innerview.
Seriously, this interviewer had a tunnel vision approach here and it seemed she did not even hear one word he said due to her agenda.
A great question to hammer
If hammered right
Loren Green conducts a great interview!
Did I understand this Muslim to say he’s a PhD?
I, too, have a PhD, but never taut it like this fool did.
(Oh, no. I just touted it!)
But, wait. Did I tell you I am a scholar and a writer who has devoted over four decades to my research?
Well, I know I didn’t tell you that I’ve written a book about Mohammed and what a complete ass-ole and pedophile he was. His religion is garbage that today enjoys a wide discipleship of sub-human Neanderthal-like animals.
Go to Amazon and read the ‘Author’s Note’ with which he opens the book. He goes out of his way to leave the impression that he is still Christian and not again a Muslim. Pure and shameless deceit.
I don’t know if that was the most embarrassing interview on FOX, but it was cringe-worthy... Stupid, obvious question... why shouldn’t he write a book on Jesus, the founder of Christianity?
this interview reminds me that Lauren Green is hot.
Folks I have a flash for you. BREAKING NEWS!!!! There are no news programs anymore. All those so-called news programs are entertainment biased. Designed to entertain and not to inform. And guess what? We are to blame!! The masses refuse to watch programming that does not entertain us.
She did a great job. She believes that his religion makes him more likely to do negative book on Jesus and she pounded away at it. Much like any MSNBC mouthpiece would do to a Christian who wrote a negative book about MoHamMed. I loved it!!
I watched it. Green was off her game, but he was playing Eddie Haskell with his innocent wide-eyed who-me looks, citing his credentials defensively and repeatedly, protesting too much.
“Why would a muslim write a book about Jesus” is not only a fair question, it’s the obvious question everyone wants answered. He chose not to answer it simply and move on, but rather dug in and wasted air time. We learn nothing from this interview except that he feels aggrieved by islamophobes.
FYI -from the link: about Reza Aslan - author - Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth..
Nor is professor of religions what he does for a living. He is an associate professor in the Creative Writing program at the University of California, Riverside, where his terminal MFA in fiction from Iowa is his relevant academic credential. It appears he has taught some courses on Islam in the past, and he may do so now, moonlighting from his creative writing duties at Riverside. Aslan has been a busy popular writer, and he is certainly a tireless self-promoter, but he is nowhere known in the academic world as a scholar of the history of religion. And a scholarly historian of early Christianity? Nope.
What about that Ph.D.? As already noted, it was in sociology. I have his dissertation in front of me. It is a 140-page work titled Global Jihadism as a Transnational Social Movement: A Theoretical Framework. If Aslans Ph.D. is the basis of a claim to scholarly credentials, he could plausibly claim to be an expert on social movements in twentieth-century Islam. He cannot plausibly claim, as he did to Lauren Green, that he is a historian, or is a professor of religions for a living.
Well, well. Along with misrepresenting his religion, and trying to pass himself off as still Christian in the first two pages of this book, this guy seriously misrepresented his credentials in the interview:
