Ben Shapiro: US commentator clashes with BBC's Andrew Neil – BBC News


He has more than 2 million followers on Twitter, 600,000 YouTube subscribers and his videos on the Daily Wire channel rack up millions of views.

Ben Shapiro is a controversial figure but one of the US’ leading conservative political commentators. His book, The Right Side of History: How Reason and Moral Purpose Made the West Great, is a New York Times bestseller.

In a spiky Politics Live interview with Andrew Neil, Mr Shapiro refers to an incident which took place between Trump campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski and Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields in 2016.

Although a charge was brought at the time against Mr Lewandowski, Florida prosecutors dropped the case.

This is an unedited version of their interview, which was terminated by Mr Shapiro.

  1. Lol, I think leftists miss the point that the journalist was bringing in more irrelevant quotes than actual quality questions. I think Ben Shapiro hardly defended his position, but mostly because of Neil's lack of proper questions rather than him getting creamed. Overall, this seemed to be an entirely pointless and fruitless interview.

  2. I'd be curious to see Ben's response to this debate now. It seems like he wasn't at his best and that he got flustered, which I can understand, because the interviewer was bringing up some points that were difficult to address. I think it's good that Ben ended the interview early for his own sake. He needed to stop himself from saying anything he would regret.

  3. That was dishonest.. @9:00

    'How can you attribute the puerile click bait titles which promise footage of me 'destroying' liberals to me?'

    One, you publicly admitted that the aim of debating for you is to humiliate the person with whom you are debating.. 'destroy them' if you will..

    Second, these videos with that sort of labeling can be found in or referenced from your own site, the daily wire, of which you are editor and chief..

    We can safely 'attribute' the fad of those titles to you..

  4. I think that what Ben was getting at is that this journalist showed clear bias in his questions. The journalist also wanted to talk to Ben about things that Ben had said in the past, not the topic that Ben was supposed to come on the show and discuss. I think most people could agree that mulling over our past ideas is much less useful than having a conversation about the present. I wish Ben would have finished the interview, but, the interviewer clearly had pointed questions and only wanted to bring up the past.

  5. I stopped listening to BBC World Series because there was one segment about Game of Thrones and the anchorwoman actually said she has never seen the show, hmmm ? You work for BBC and your segment is a out the show Game of Thrones and yet you have never seen it?!?! And now this video, this anchor is just utterly unprofessional and rude. In fact I’m now deleting my the UK Radio app .

  6. Shapiro is so lost and muddled up in his contradictions that he thinks he is trying to reach out to the other side and be bipartisan but rages out on Andrew Neil, who by the way is a very right wing pundit, and accuses Neil of being a left winger. He doesn't understand that in UK tough questions are asked on all political and news shows. That's why Shapiro never goes on any mainstream media shows in US because he has contradicted himself so much in the past that he is easy pickings. He spews so much garbage and trash that he can't keep up with what he has said or done because his views are not based on solid principles but instead on a need to be controversial and win an argument at all cost.

  7. I probably would never vote for Shapiro. He's just too conservative for me… but he is highly intelligent and really knows how to point out his position (maybe he's too fast every now and then, but on youtube, you could just go back a few seconds). I disagree on many things with him, but I'm totally on his side how he handled this BBC-guy. This really wasn't on his level. Whoever finds this entertaining or even Shapiro-destroying, probably doesn't even get half of the content .

  8. What makes this so good is that Ben is (for once) mostly right. Each time Neil's questions are unfair or at least reaching too much Ben calls it out. However Neil just ignores it and keeps playing games with Ben. Eventually Ben lost it so much he ended up looking like an idiot. Andrew Neil ben-shapirod Ben Shapiro.

  9. Andrew was tutored by Socrates, he won't stop asking questions until your views look irresponsible to you :D, it was clear Ben felt that way when he turned into a teenager at the end of the interview
