Video: MSNBC’s Krystal Ball punked on air

(Hat tip: Bryan Preston, PJ Media.)

It’s actually kind of hard to have the heart to put this one up.  If there’s something more lopsidedly unsporting than shooting fish in a barrel, this is probably it.

Bryan Preston is unsparing with his contempt for Ms. Ball’s seeming credulity.  I just feel bad for her.  I’ve never been a big talk radio listener, but I have heard the big-time pros (Limbaugh, Levin, Elder) shut down these prank callers immediately — sometimes before my own brain has registered what’s happening.  Apparently, Ball doesn’t have that sixth sense a media personality needs to be successful in the game of entertaining live phone calls.

That said, it’s really not Ball who comes off in this encounter looking like a horse’s a**.
