Leave it to a Fox host to be abusive and cowardly. This time it’s Fox Business host Neil Cavuto shouting, contorting, and getting all lathered up over Julian Epstein’s attempts to be, you know, reasonable. What? Reasonable? On Fox? Oh come now.
Epstein was trying to get Cavuto to stop conflating all of the so-called “scandals” that conservatives have been obsessing on for months in hopes of destroying the Obama (and possible future Hillary Clinton) presidency. See: Dead horse, beating.
But Cavuto would have none of that, nosireebob! He was bound and determined to burst out of his skin and name-call, the surefire technique Foxers use when they have absolutely nothing to offer.
Neil, Neil, Neil, you are seriously losing it:
What part of Custer don’t you understand?…
Privacy is invaded, or potentially invaded, institutions of all sorts doing pretty much the same thing. There is a pattern.
If you want to conflate and combine all these issues, then you can do that. I just don’t think it’s a very thoughtful way of approaching it…
Drop the liberal thing and focus on the reality thing! …
Because I want to talk facts, and you want to make these general broadsides, Neil.
Julian, you’re saying nothing and it’s offensive! …
Okay, why don’t we speak about them specifically?…
Julian, why don’t you talk facts? It’s annoying how obnoxious you can be on the reality.
I am talking the reality.
I’m not going to play this game with you, Julian. You play the same damn game dismissing one incident…
No Neil, you’re playing the game too and — [overtalk]
Cut his mic! Cut his mic, he’s going nowhere fast. Cut his mic! Ben, I want to go back to you. Cut his damn mic!

“Julian, why don’t you talk facts? It’s annoying how obnoxious you can be on the reality.” Pot. Kettle. Obnoxious. Hey Neil, when will Fox start talking facts? When that happens, then maybe you can demand that of liberal guests who try to do just that.
