‘Fox and Friends’ Hosts and Guest Scientist Exchange Insults After Segment Didn’t Go as Planned

Fox smears science editor as a ‘coward’ after he exposes network’s climate change ban

An appearance by a Scientific American editor Michael Moyer, on Wednesday’s “Fox & Friends” morning show has left the hosts of the show and Mr. Moyer hurling insults at one another via every channel imaginable — TV, blog post, Twitter, etc.

The plan had been for Moyer to appear on the show to discuss scientific trends that might impact the future. The first thing that came to Moyer’s mind, he told Business Insider, was climate change, but he says that the producers asked him to steer clear of that controversial subject, requesting he replace that talking point “with something else.”

Update on Chick-fil-A Backlash: Same-Sex Kiss Day VS. Appreciation Day

As we previously reported, anti-gay marriage comments made by Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy have polarized fast-food lovers everywhere. On Wednesday, Chick-fil-A supporters converged in droves upon its restaurant locations all over the nation for “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day”, resulting in “record setting” sales, according to ABC News. But today, those on the other side of the argument plan to have their say.

“National Same-Sex Kiss Day at Chick-fil-A”, which takes place today in protest of Cathy’s comments, encourages same-sex couples to take a photo or video of themselves kissing at their local Chick-fil-A. It has yet to be seen how many will turn out for the kiss-in, but the Facebook event page, which has over 13,000 confirmed participants, states the following:

“In honor of their support for love, equality, and the real definition of family, we’re holding a NATIONAL Same Sex Kiss Day at Chick Fil A’s around the country. So grab a friend (or 20) and head out to your nearest Chick Fil A! And don’t forget to post photos/videos of it here! For all the world to see!

We would also like to clarify that this event was NOT created as a response to Mike Huckabee’s appreciation day, this event was created on July 19, several days before Mike Huckabee announced his plans for Wednesday August 1.”
