#184: Brit Hume

Brit Hume is an American commentator and television journalist. Since 2008, he has been a senior political analyst for Fox News and a regular panelist on Fox News Sunday. He is an ardent conservative even though he himself maintains that he is fair and balanced (which is, of course, fair enough). His main claim to an entry in the Encyclopedia concerns his advice to Tiger Woods In the wake of the revelation of Tiger Woods' habitual adultery, Hume stated:

“Tiger Woods will recover as a golfer. Whether he can recover as a person I think is a very open question […] the extent to which he can recover […] seems to me to depend on his faith. He's said to be a Buddhist; I don't think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redemption that is offered by the Christian faith. So my message to Tiger would be, 'Tiger, turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world.'”

What nails his application is his stance on global warming – which is based on … the Oregon petition. Also check out the predictable dishonesty here.

Diagnosis: Not exactly a match for his great namesake, Brit Hume is really your traditional, fanatically religious denialist. A common condition, but one that qualifies for lunacy. Impact unclear, but conjectured to be moderately dangerous.
