Why did this guy agree to go on Fox in the first place?

She's an absolute fucking idiot.

What in the hell do they give these bimbos airtime for?

He either purposely wanted to have a chance to call them on their BS, or he was naive about going on Fox. Either way, this gave them and their side ammunition. Their message, that Jen so eloquently summarized above, got out. People heard "MUSLIM DISSED JESUS!" and that's it.

And that message will go on and on and on.

Some percentage of the viewership, like us, must be aware of the stupidity, cupidity, and dupidity of the situation. If 1% of 20 million people has a clue and an interest in his book, that's still a bunch of people. So, he is winning, in the larger picture.

Yeah, and when someone is in the "Islam=Evil" mode, it doesn't take much to "confirm" or "validate" people's prejudices.

But it wasn't just Aslan's decision to play offense that makes the clip such a joy to watch for Fox News' critics, who see the network as bigoted, strongly anti-academic, or both. It was also Aslan's savvy decision to highlight the gaping hole in Green's line of questioning.
...
"I think the fundamental problem here is that you're assuming that I have some type of faith-based bias in this work that I write," he told Green, putting the interview's absurdity into words for anyone struggling to at home. "My job as a scholar of religions is to write about religions ... and one of the religions that I've written about is the one that was launched by Jesus," he continued. "I think it's unfair to just simply assume that because of my particular faith background that there's some type of faith agenda with this book." By Monday afternoon, the clip had been seen more than 3.7 million times on BuzzFeed alone, and Zealot was atop both the Amazon and Barnes & Noble best-seller list. It's safe to say that Aslan knew what he was doing—although even he couldn't have known just how successful he'd be at doing it.

He was very self possessed despite her onslaught of programmed attacks. Good on him. But despite the success of his book as a result, Fox News continues as strong a fraud as ever, the modern form of yellow jounalism.
