In a June 8 NewsBusters post, Noel Sheppard takes a perverse glee in Fox News' Neil Cavuto petulantly shouting down a guest he didn't agree with:
Now THAT’S what I’m talking about.
Fox News host Neil Cavuto on Saturday cut the mic of the incredibly "offensive" and "obnoxious" liberal shill Julian Epstein for refusing to have a serious discussion about the current White House scandals and instead insisting on echoing Democrat talking points[.]
When Epstein continued to speak, Cavuto said, “Cut his mic. Guys, cut his mic, he’s going nowhere fast. Cut his mic.”
Cavuto then moved onto to Stein before once again saying, “Cut his damn mic!”
Which raises a question: Julian Epstein is a shill willing to say anything without any regard for its veracity to advance Democrats. As such, why would Cavuto have him on?
He’s a broken record of Democrat talking points – nothing more, nothing less. As a result, he adds absolutely nothing to the discussion - never has, never will.
His place is on MSNBC where he can repeat the White House line with all the other parrots.
Therefore, unless the folks on Fox like these kinds of fights on Saturday mornings, maybe they should think better of scheduling people such as Julian Epstein.
Certainly, there have to be many far more intellectually honest people on the left interested in having a meaningful discussion about the important issues facing the nation than this shameless shill.
Funny that Sheppard doesn't ding Cavuto for repeating right-wing talking points attacking the Obama administration. Indeed, Sheppard fails to mention Epstein's accurate statement that Cavuto is "playing the Obama-hater game."
This is the kind of media Sheppard -- and, by extension, the Media Research Center -- wants, a media where only conservative viewpoints are forwarded and liberals are ridiculed and shouted down.
