The interviewer Andrew Neill is considered "staunchly conservative", but, in his own words, likes to take on opposing views to his guests and ask probing questions.

It's funny to see Shapiro confronted with a conservative from a country where conservative doesn't imply the exact same moral values.

Shapiro is used to arguing against 15 year old liberals. He came up against an adult and got humiliated.

Shapiro: "I'm popular and no one has ever heard of you".

Yeah playing devils advocate is true journalism. Ask the person tough questions if their ideas are good they should have good answers, if not they are exposed.

Neill: "Isn't it wrong to send someone to prison for 30 years for having a miscarriage?"
Shapiro: "You're a far-left idiot who refuses to answer questions and I am ending this interview."

If this is the great intellectual hope for the American conservative movement then it explains why the American conservative movement is in such a poor state. I feel sorry for the Koch brothers!

I'm not that familiar with Shapiro, but he made a fool of himself beyond repair 8O
