He's NOT hated by media, he gets invited to an incredible number of tv programs. It's better to think of him like a heel in pro wrestling. He plays the villain in left wing programs in a way they like, safe for that one kathy newman interview. He's been on more feminist leaning programs than anything else.He's hated by the media and so will not be given any chances for redemption
If they'd hate him, they'd ignore him.
