Jeremy Paxman is known as the rottweiller of British TV journalists ‚Äď a mixture of Chris Matthews, Laurence O‚ÄôDonnell, Keith Olbermann, and Jon Stewart rolled into one. He regularly skewers slippery politicians, and if he smells the least whiff of fear he closes in for the kill.
A more recent example of this came last week when Paxman interviewed Southern Baptist pastor Robert Jeffress, who made news by describing Mormonism as a cult when introducing Presidential candidate Rick Perry to an audience of potential supporters. Jeffress gives some excellent answers and, whether you agree with him or not, I think he‚Äôs a great example of how a Christian should respond clearly, courageously, evangelistically and unapologetically to a hostile interviewer.
The provided clip is of a different interview with Pastor Jeffress....

As I listened to this interview and the way Maher referred to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords as "your boy Jesus..." I wondered to myself how some of the heros of the faith would have conducted themselves in such a interview with a man such as Maher.

That would be because politicians habitually say what they planned beforehand and avoid answering the question actually posed to them.
It is good to see interviewers that will not bow down to these untrustworthy men and women who refuse to answer the question. They should hold them to account and insist that they answer the questions given to them.
This is essential to a healthy democracy and political system.
Neither our legislative representatives nor our pastors should be permitted to act as unaccountable popes!
"Jeremy Paxman is known as the rottweiller of British TV journalists"
I always thought that John Humphries from Radio 4 was the quote "rottweiller" of the BBC.
In these last couple of decades the arrogance coupled with the agressive ill mannered belligerence of some interviewers has been sickening. They don't allow the person to finish what they are saying before they snap at them. In many of these kinds of interview you don't really get the point of view of the programmes guest, because of the hostile method of interview.
1 Timothy 1 3 As I urged you upon my departure for Macedonia, remain on at Ephesus, in order that you may instruct certain men not to teach strange doctrines, 4 nor to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which give rise to mere speculation rather than furthering the administration of God which is by faith.---NASB
or if Mr. Maher should perhaps become a Christian?
Galatians 3 27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise.---NASB
In 2001, When A Candidate For The 2002 FEDERAL Elections In CHICAGO, IL; I Met BILL MAHER (Who, By The Way IS GENETICALLY "JEWISH": But POLITICALLY 'LIBERTARIAN' [So HE Says; Albeit HE'S MORE LIBERTINE !]).
Anyway, My Friend TOMMY HORN, One Of The Bouncers At EXCALIBUR (A Nightclub Owned By MR. DAVID HOFFMAN; A "JEWISH" BUSINESSMAN Who Owns OTHERS), Informed Me A NEW CLUB (ALSO Owned By HOFFMAN) Was Opening Up NEXT-DOOR Called "CLUB X".
I IMMEDIATELY Knew, By ITS NAME, IT Would NO DOUBT Be ANOTHER VILE & WICKEDLY RUN OPERATION Catering To SEXUAL PERVERSIONS !
TOMMY Said Nothing REAL VILE Happens Until AFTER 2am (As It Had A 4-5am Liscense); So He Took Me NEXT-DOOR Where I Was IMMEDIATELY Greeted With RESPECT As A "VIP".
INSIDE, IN THE LOUNGE AREA WAS NONE OTHER THAN BILL MAHER. HE HAD AN ALCOHOLIC-DRINK IN HIS HAND & WAS SURROUNDED BY A GROUP OF MEN & ONE WOMAN.
HE APPROACHED ME & ASKED: "TONY, HOW'S YOUR UNCLE HENRY ?
I'D LIKE TO INTRODUCE YOU TO CHRISTIE HEFNER, THE DAUGHTER OF HUGH HEFNER...
I'D LIKE TO HAVE YOU ON MY PROGRAM POLITICALLY INCORRECT..."
BILL MAHER'S A RABID SODOMITE, STRONG-DRINKER & ADMIRER (WORSHIPPER) OF "PLAYBOY" FOUNDER HUGH HEFNER.
***LIKE ALL THE OTHER LOST "JEWS" WHO "OWN" HOLLYWOOD & LOST GENTILES: HE NEEDS TO BE BORN-AGAIN !
Luke 7 44 And turning toward the woman, He said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has wet My feet with her tears, and wiped them with her hair. 45 "You gave Me no kiss; but she, since the time I came in, has not ceased to kiss My feet. 46 "You did not anoint My head with oil, but she anointed My feet with perfume. 47 "For this reason I say to you, her sins, which are many, have been forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little." 48 And He said to her, "Your sins have been forgiven." 49 And those who were reclining at the table with Him began to say to themselves, "Who is this man who even forgives sins?" 50 And He said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you; go in peace."---NASB
Scofield wrote: Simon ... When Jesus would justify the woman in the eyes of Simon, He points to her works, for only through her works could Simon see the proof of her faith; but when He would send the woman away in peace, He points to her faith, not her works... His own works can never be to the believer his own ground of assurance, which must rest upon the the work of Christ...
When politicians are asked onto Paxo`s "newsround" to answer some hard questions, numerous times the stock response given is "no one is available", but if an election is pending, the scoundrels are queuing up & just hoping to survive. How I love to see them squirm while arguing a black crow is white, & Paxo looking at them with unbridled contempt.
