Conservative provocateur Ben Shapiro labels himself as a rapid-fire intellectual well-versed in owning the libs.

However, on Thursday the witty pundit stormed out of a contentious interview. (Spectator)

Oh dear — should have done your research Ben. The idea that Andrew Neil, who just so happens to also be chairman of The Spectator, is some sort of rabid leftist is hilarious to anybody who has a clue about British media. As Cockburn knows, he is often attacked for being too unacceptably un-left for the BBC. He was just doing what interviewers should do: challenging his guest to justify his views. Facts don’t care about your feelings, after all.

Shapiro issued an apology later that night:

Cockburn can’t help feeling that the trouble is not just with Shapiro. It is a symptom of America’s stultifying news media. Pundits are so used to having their views echoed back to them in interviews — or only challenged by people who don’t know what they are talking about — that they can’t handle a robust interrogation.
