I thought Shapiro destroyed Piers. Really, i was impressed. He not once stooped to the level of piers, he not once tried to change the subject.
Piers kept going from losing fight to losing fight hoping to win one. As far as style goes you can interpret that how you will. Every step of the way Shapiro stuck to the subject and stuck to the specifics that were being dealt with while piers tried to bring up ridiculous arguments that quite frankly, were easily shut down by Shapiro.
Piers: Adam lanza used an assault rifle.
Shapiro: He also had two hand guns. Do you think if he didn't have the assault rifle he wouldn't have used the handguns?
piers: (changes subject)
