Take a tip from Micheal Palin

Someone interviewed Dinesh D'Souza recently. Dinesh D'Souza, who besides being a wingnut liar has just been convicted of violating campaign finance law. Do you have any idea how hard it is to violate campaign finance law anymore? It's like running afoul of Bird Law.

You have to really want to set out to commit a crime to violate whatever scraps of campaign finance law still exists in this country.

At any rate, some idiot interviewed Dinesh D'Souza and he crapped out this gem:

The common thread between ISIS and what’s going in Ferguson is you have these people who basically believe that to correct a perceived injustice, it’s perfectly okay to inflict all types of new injustices,” D’Souza said. “Behead guys who had nothing to do with it. Go and loot shops from business owners who were not part of the original problem whatsoever. And all of this is then licensed by the left and licensed to some degree by the media.”

Okay, so going forward, here is how journalists should handle someone like D'Souza:

When a ridiculous person says something ridiculous, just say:
 "You're a very silly man and I'm not going to interview you."

When you come in to work and find that your producer has booked Donald Trump and he starts telling you about his private investigators in Hawaii, just hold up your hand, look him right in the eye and say
"You're a very silly man and I'm not going to interview you."

Think of the trouble that could have been avoided if, when Michele Bachmann first appeared on the scene and started babbling about investigating congress members with un-American ideas, the interviewer had simply said.

"You're a very silly woman and I'm not going to interview you."

When Lindsey Graham comes in to your studio with a list of reasons that we really really need to go to war with yet another country, just say

"You're a very silly man and I'm not going to interview you."

When Louie Gohmert or Steve King open their mouths to say anything,

"You're a very silly man and I'm not going to interview you."

You'll save us all a lot of frustration.

You sure hit the proverbial nail on the head with this one. Unfortunately, the MSM is about profit not information or truth.
