Fischer: Asking Me About My Bigotry Is “Gotcha Journalism”

Last week, we noted that Alan Colmes tried unsuccessfully to have a rational and reasonable discussion with Bryan Fischer about his publicly stated views that God only wants men to be president.

But the entire thing was an exercise in futility as Fischer literally refused to answer any of Colmes’ questions, simply repeating his talking points over and over and over again to any question that Colmes asked.

Today, Fischer addressed the interview on his own radio program and asserted that he used this tactic because Colmes was engaging in “gotcha journalism”:

Colmes invited Fischer on his radio program to have a discussion about Fischer’s views that women should not be president and Fischer agreed to participate in such a discussion.  But when Colmes actually tried to ask Fischer about his stated views and explain what he meant, Fischer categorically refused to answer any of his questions … all because, in Fischer’s view, the idea that he might be asked to explain his bigoted views is nothing more than “gotcha journalism,” just as watching his program is “cyberstalking” and exposing his bigotry is waging jihad and a “hate crime.”
