"America Live" fill-in host Shannon Bream largely dismissed the controversy that emerged after religion correspondent Lauren Green repeatedly questioned Aslan about why he, as a Muslim, was writing a book about Jesus. Saying it had been churned up by "liberal" and "far-left" media outlets, she brought on conservative media critic Brent Bozell to agree with her. (Fox News has a media critic on its payroll, but Howard Kurtz was apparently unavailable.)
Bozell said he wanted to "applaud" Green for asking whether Aslan was biased, that Aslan couldn't be a "very good Muslim" if he was defending himself as a mere scholar, and that he was misrepresenting his academic credentials and couldn't have read all the books he said he'd read.
Also, he said Green was a great person. Bream agreed with that too, and plugged her upcoming story on people who were attacking Christians.
