    IIRC he wasn't wrong to be annoyed, but to storm off the set in a tantrum was not a great way to enhance his credibility as a supposedly credible journalist/media personality/whatever he is meant to be.

    He's a bit like Russel Brand or Grecian. One of these people who pushes people away from the cause they so passionately endorse by representing it so poorly.
    Yeah this I can understand, but I posted that because I was suspecting it would be more...

    Which is just offensively awful. There is absolutely no evidence that Mateen was openly gay and went there "regularly" beyond a quickly and repeatedly debunked tabloid rumour. To suggest that the fact it was an LGBT nightclub was irrelevant is as twisted as pretending it had nothing to do with ISIS (whose homophobia is not news).

    But, I mean, maybe I shouldn't be surprised given that you are unironically using "homosexuals" as a noun still, in these days.

    Anyone notice how when someone he's debating is making articulate and valid points, Jones displays this big grin as though they're wrong?
