Howard Kurtz and Guy Benson Go After Anderson Cooper for ‘Browbeating’ Pam Bondi: WATCH


Guy Benson

Howard Kurtz invited FOX News contributor Guy Benson on his Media Buzz show on Sunday where they went after Anderson Cooper for choking up as he read the names of Orlando victims, and holding Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi accountable for signing off on anti-gay legislation.

Kurtz questioned whether the fact that Cooper is a “gay journalist” affected his coverage.

Raw Story reports:

“I respect Anderson Cooper and I think he’s generally fair,” Kurtz told Fox News contributor Guy Benson. “Do you think he was acting as more than just an aggressive journalist?”

“He seemed like an activist,” Benson agreed. “Of course, I only watch Fox all the time. But I’ve heard that he’s very good at his job, he’s a versatile journalist [but] in this circumstance, I thought the line of questioning for the attorney general of Florida, under the circumstance and given the context of what had just happened in that state, it was a bizarre non sequitur.”

“It seemed like he was browbeating her for unrelated political thought crimes in her past,” Benson added, “which did not relate to the to the task at hand, which is roundly condemning the horrific atrocity that happened.”

Added Benson, who is gay:

“The only way this line of questioning makes sense is if your underlying assumption is that any opposition to any form of gay rights legislation is rooted in bigotry or hatred.”
