Russell Brand Calls Fox News A 'Fanatical Terrorist Propagandist Organization'

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro's rant about Iraq on Saturday caused actor and comedian Russell Brand to post a scorching diatribe about the network on his YouTube channel.

Pirro attacked President Obama and advised the United States to "bomb" Iraq over and over. In response, Brand posted a nearly 10-minute-long video analyzing Pirro's entire rant, in which he said she was actually "more dangerous than ISIS," and picked apart every single "incendiary" thing she said.

Brand, seemingly horrified by Pirro's tone throughout the speech, took particular issue with her comment that ISIS was a “fanatical religious terrorist organization.”

“So is Fox News," he said. "It's a fanatical terrorist propagandist organization."

Pirro also suggested that the way to take out the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is to "bomb them, keep bombing them, bomb them again!"

“F*cking hell,” Brand shouted. "When they do these bombings it creates more insurgents... It creates more terrorism."

Brand called Pirro's words "evil," "incendiary," and "just volatile combative, angry language."

"I’m not being just sensational," he concluded. "That is more dangerous than ISIS-- that attitude. That’s far-reaching. That’s affecting millions and millions of people."
