    Idk why people are saying Ben lost when nobody lost anything. Ben just got mad at the journalist because he didn’t admit to be a leftist. Even if he did brake his character he’s only human and the stuff Ben been thru throughout his life. With all the hate, I’m sure he has hella more patience than a lot of us

      No correlation...? Also, I’m 100% sure that he has carried out one single interview. This interview here is the exception. Life begins at conception. Aging begins at conception. Abortion is ending a life, even if the women gets an abortion the first day she is pregnant, a life is ended.

    To be fair, Ben went into the interview expecting to talk about the book but then was told his beliefs where going to

    The illiterate people in the comment section trying to smear Ben need to educate themselves about him first - maybe actually watch a video or two about him. Even Bill Maher praised him for having the balls to step onto enemy territory on his own. He's been on debates with Cenk Uygur (whom he ripped to shreds) Sam Harris, he's constantly appeared on CNN, Vox and other news channels who oppose his views.

    If the collective IQ of the people that think Ben got destroyed could be channeled into electricity, it couldn’t even lightly toast a piece of bread. Ben is one of the most intelligent people in the sphere of politics and he simply didn’t want to answer questions to a guy whose intentions weren’t pure and objective. If you can’t see that, in the words of Darth Vader, “you are as clumsy as you are stupid.”

      I’m hating your comment because the Darth Vader quote is wrong, it’s actually “he is as clumsy as he is stupid” and it’s in reference to an officer who quite frankly was an awful tactician. Also no one actually thinks Ben was “destroyed”. Also whether the questions were backed by an ill intent or not he could’ve given an honest answer rather than getting heated over nothing

    The entire "interview" was not an actual interview. This clip was taken out of context and Andrew Neil was blatantly attacking Ben Shapiro. Ben thought that this was an interview when in fact it was a debate. He did not get destroyed, he came unprepared.

      It was an interview that Ben tried to turn into a debate. He failed, claimed the conservative was on "the left", tried to insult the interviewer by saying that he hasn't heard of him, had it turned around on him, got angry and then left.

    The only problem Ben has was not looking into who he interviewer was.
    He’s been doing speeches on his book and the editor and interviewer took the whole 14minutes to actually ask something about the book from a snarky way, of course Ben reacted this way when told one thing then was interviewed in a completely different way

  • Edward

    I’ve seen left wing journalists come down hard on the likes of Shapiro and Peterson for having videos on TheXvid with titles such as ‘Peterson DESTROYS feminist’ etc. The counter argument by Peterson being a valid one “I can’t control what people do when they edit and upload content of me and give it their own title”. Once again we see the hypocrisy of left wing media.

      And I’m referring to The Guardian here btw, not Andrew Neil.

  • ZuKuTo / OFWModz

    If you bois actually listened carefully, you'd notice Ben did not know who he was, and was under the impression the interview was only about his book, not misc things included.

    Also, check Steven Crowders new video with Ben Shapiro, he explains what happened here quite well, I'd suggest skipping far ahead as there are a bunch of skits from Steven for fun at the beginning / mid-through.

    He only fully addressed the book from malice to his notoriety, never did he let Ben ask any questions formally.

    He ignores the argument of BBC being major bias'd, just dodges it.

    It also seems a lot of context was cut out here.

  • Owl Gaming

    You basically show the two only moments Shapiro said things that could be held as questionable. For the rest of the time mr.Neil has been annoyingly repetitive and unbalanced, with no apparent interest for getting to know the person he was interviewing.

    Destroys him ? How exactly did he destroy him? What he asked was a fair question. Imagine if Shapiro claimed to be down the middle but only questioned the left like this man only questions the right

    • Daniel
      Daniel 16 hours ago

      See the problem is this is an interview of Shapiro, not the interviewer. The interviewer (who is a conservative) is only asking questions to Ben that are based on factual records of what Ben said and wrote in his book. He made up zero lies and nothing was out of context or misrepresented. The fact is Ben didn't like admitting he was wrong many times in the past and then tried to blame the interviewer because he is "a leftist" when is fact the interviewer is comfortably right-wing. The only question Ben tried to ask was based on absurdity as he was told.
