Neil Cavuto is a political pundit currently employed by Fox News and Fox Business Network. He hosts Your World with Neil Cavuto and Cavuto on Business, as well as Cavuto on FBN. He is also senior vice president and managing editor of business news for FBN, which basically means that he is to blame for its contents. He is also known for being one of the primary strategists behind Fox News’s Benghazi coverage and for serving as a microphone for a variety of loons and cranks such as Pat Boone.
That, by itself, might not be enough to qualify for a separate entry, but Cavuto seals the deal with his rather rabid climate change denialism, which includes all the major denialist talking points, including but not limited to (deliberate?) confusing weather and climate, smearing, and playing the victim. He has also, given his position, been able to host and serve the interests of a range of prominent climate change deniers as guests, such as Chris Horner.
Diagnosis: Cavuto’s influence is rather scary, and he uses it to enable rather insidious forms of denialism. A not insignificant enemy of civilization.
Neil is NO loon. He is a very intelligent man who comes to his own conclusions based on FACTS!! Sorry he does not agree with the left's agenda!ReplyDelete
Point me to those facts bud.Delete
Neil Cavuto also opposes raising the minimum wage because he did fine In his first job as a teenager making $2 an hour in 1974. So we can add "does not know how inflation works" to his ledger.ReplyDelete
Wow, you think Neil Cavuto is a loon? That act alone would bring your credibility into question.ReplyDelete
Nothing to do with politics. Cavuto remains a climate change denialist, and when you reject scientific evidence based on political or personal opinion, then, yes - that's enough to qualify as a loon.Delete
When I see a prominent democrat named on this page I may give it more credence, until then it's just a left wing tragedy.ReplyDelete
Well, we've covered Tom Harkin, at least: one of the most dangerous loons out there. And you'll find plenty of people with a liberal bent, such as Bill Maher.Delete
But you're right. There is a predominance of rightwing loons. It may be because those are the ones that tend to come my way, so feel free to suggest some left-leaning crazies (with justification, of course). Or perhaps there just are more rightwing loons out there? (Or perhaps, as I am prone to admit, there are certain types of crazy often associated with the left that we haven't covered well enough thus far - anti-GMO bullshit comes to mind.)
That said, notice that your comment relies on an obvious fallacy. Even if it were true that we have been harder on the rightwingers and given Democrats a pass, that doesn't mean that the rightwingers we have covered are any less lunatic. Cavuto is a loon, and the fact that we have failed to discuss the lunacy of some other loons cannot change that.
Neil Cavuto. More like Neil Caputo, am I right? XDReplyDelete
