It's called Faux News for a reason. :)

I am one of the few people who saw this and felt like he came off as a condescending bitchy prick (also, i get bings on my gaydar.....) from the get go. Its like he was ready to perform "taking offense" to her questions, from the get go. Its the whole theatre of "offense".  Since he is a "pro-fess-or" with a "p.h.d." in "his...tor...y" blah blah blah shouldn't he be in "instruct" mode - couldn't he have responded friendly enough while correcting her?  There was no elegance to it.

Also the media reports it just like the YouTube clip:  "Renowned academic and author Reza Aslan is forced to respond to a barrage of Islamophobic attacks during an interview with Fox News host Lauren Green."

I don't find her question a "barrage" nor "attacks".  Granted, she's asking the dumb questions she expects her Fox audience wants asked.  Big deal.  He came ready to take offense with this embarrassing hissy fit.  I call publicity stunt.  He was on Maher the other day and he seems like he has some kind of chip on his shoulder.

I love this. Play full screen.

I thought her whole approach, from the get go to the interview was idiotic. No wonder why he had the reaction he did. His analogy was poor though in trying to get her on track. I find it refreshing that he took her to task . I hate to see Fox News get away with this kind of "reporting".
And yes, the gaydar was binging.
