10:20 am
iin the spirit of gun control, will you disarm your entire security team? >> we will get back to you. >> would you like a sip of my soda? why can you defend yourself but not the majority of americans? look at the team of security you have got here. and you are an advocate for gun control? one, two, three, four, five. there are probably more. stuart: that video has gone viral. the men i man in the video is jn mattera, author of hollywood hypocrites and he joins us now. you ambushed him. didn't you? >> i think this was pretty straightforward and i would consider it aggressive journalism, a question that should be on the tongues of most press members today, and it is very simple. if michael bloomberg has his own personal s.w.a.t. team protecting him, and he showed as the mayor of new york city, why would he go out there and be the
10:21 am
most prominent and deep-pocketed advocate for gun control to restrict the rights of americans, new yorkers to protect themselves and their families from possible home invasions or other violent crimes. stuart: you would agree the threat level against people like mayor bloomberg is a great deal higher than the threat level against a person at their home. the threat level is different, isn't it? >> sure. nobody to grudges mayor bloomberg for security. but if he says that guns are the reason why we have violent crimes and less guns would equal less crime, then he should lead by example. clearly he wouldn't go ahead and lead by example, he had n.y.p.d. officers guarding him presumably who are armed with firearms that have magazine rounds of 15, so
10:22 am
why is he trying to restrict new yorkers and others? eliminating certain firearms in this business hypocrisy. stuart: you asked him if he wanted a sip of your soda. that was a sure sarcasm. >> i wanted to make sure our mayor was properly hydrated. jedediah: that was my favorite part. stuart: if it was a band legal substance in that area. jedediah: like a big gulp. charles: i have to tell you, we understand celebrities, but when you open a newspaper celebrities shot overnight and robbed, happened to be pulled in such as chris brown, so i think jason is spot on with this.
10:23 am
>> again, think it is a pretty straightforward question. the security team followed me down the block clai clinton ahed security jurisdiction to question me and security jurisdiction is not even a legal term. they asked for my date of birth. i had to essentially show who i was in order to ask inverted question, but they don't even id the boat. asking a critical question for a prominent politician. stuart: on the screen right now, that is where you are being asked to provide id before you could ask any questions and they followed you down the street. >> they followed me twice for us to question me who i was in the show identification. i asked the n.y.p.d. officers he had jurisdiction, he said he had security jurisdiction which doesn't exist, he can't investigate anything in d.c.
10:24 am
and then he followed me to ask for my date of birth. why would you need my date of birth? is this how we are going to treat members of the press? over personal information just because we don't like the kind of questioning and reasoning they propose? excuse me, we are not peasants who work for you, you work for us. >> everybody labeled it as so outrageous when all you did was ask a very basic question on the mind of every american, so if our media wasn't so lame, you would not seem so outraged. stuart: the facebook page, that is where it will be, right? they say yes. watch the whole thing. president obama's appearance on "60 minutes" with hillary clinton was nothing more than a valentine. another in a long line from the very complaint media. that will be the subject of my take, which is next. this is $100,000.

it is down to the controversial issue of contraception. yeasty to 6 on a federal law. judge andrew napolitano will be here on both stories starting at 10:35. all right, where are the sharp questions? where is the search for the truth? have you seen much probing analysis? if you were visiting from mars you would think this administration walks on water, and touch, high above mere voters. here's my take on the media and in particular 60 minutes. at short notice president obama ordered up an interview. he wanted to join with hillary clinton. 16 minutes accommodated the president's demand and gave a lengthy interview without a single, not a single probing question. it was pure flattery. it bordered on propaganda. this from a news program that claims the high journalistic
10:32 am
ground. this is not news, it is fawning taken to a higher degree. think about other reissues in the news recently. as president obama been questioned about the huge cost increases brought on by obamacare? questions about his climate change comments or the run-up in the debt from the storm relief measure or the future cost to medicare, immigration reform? i haven't seen any of them. imagine the outcry if president bush were in the white house. i will go further. compliant media have allowed the president to blame the banks, wall street and a rich for the weak economy and rising debt. where is the criticism of the president's own policies? not there. free speech goes deeper and the right to say what you think. free-speech needs a free and open debate. it needs two sides. at the moment one side is needed. the media has taken a position where the president's policies go unquestioned. that is not good. it is not healthy for our

but decline of organized religion. is that what is going on? >> yes and no. there are more people than ever before who call themselves nonreligious but i wouldn't necessarily or voluntarily call myself religious. i read this, that is to i am. i'm a believer, i am an american, happen to be also a priest, i do this and that but there are many people who lost trust in organized religion. stuart: why have they lost trust with the leaders of organized religion? not talking about scandals within catholic -- that is part of it. but not all of it. >> obviously that's pacific scandal was real land loss of trust no doubt. whether or not people are getting convincing, compassionate reasons for believing. in the old days of saying i am
