You don't seem to disagree that Watters' language was something to be fired for.
Why is that?

Is it not because it's language that could be misconstrued as a literal call for Fauci to be killed? I agree that that's exactly what it sounds like: just ever-so-slightly NOT a literal call for Fauci to be killed, knowing that someone out there will miss the nuance knowwhatImean? knowwhatImean? wink wink nudge nudge. Many many someones, but thankfully we're generally not a nation of violent crazies who take orders to kill from TV personalities. Generally. But cast a wide enough net, it's plain that he's calling for *someone, anyone* to assassinate a doctor for saying doctor stuff.

The kind of people you're worried about would have heard it in the original context, not surgically snipped to wind knickers.

BTW the first time I heard the term "killshot" was in a racquetball lesson, and a quick googling reveals that there is a racquetball gear vendor by that name. Also an Eminem diss track, an Elmore Leonard novel that was way better than the movie made out of it (true of most Elmore Leonard novels), a Nike tennis shoe, and  (not making this up) a company that makes cornhole beanbags.

This is the kind of phony controversy that makes people distrust anything that comes out of the Team Blue media.

Even if he’s not doing it intentionally, it shows a remarkable lack of judgement in light of his audience.

Never forget the suggestion that if things don’t go their way they should consider “Second Amendment remedies.” Was that a call to assassinate? Well…yes. Yes it was. And Kyle Rittenhouse a hero? And abortion-providing doctors being attacked? And “when do we get to use our guns?” And the man storming the pizza parlor with weapons to liberate the children in the non-existent basement? 

The GOP has proven itself to be as violent and intolerant as the Taliban. So, a reasonable person these days would be careful to avoid such language.

that's right (i just watched the video below) 

the irony is that it seems as though he wants people to aggressively pursue gotcha material
and send it back to a preferred news outlet to pimp out
ground breaking? no, just more foolish tabloid behavior
i worry about the wrasslin' buy in component

Please read the context of ALL of those examples. None can be construed as some sort of directive to the general public to take matters into their own hands. Mr Watters encouraged Joe Public to ambush Fauci and go for the kill shot.

Its a flipping metaphor.  Listen to the shit coming out of the WH regarding the unvaxxed fer chrissakes.  You'd think that they were talking about the Jews as scapegoats in the prelude to WW II.

Phony outrage.  Kinda like the printing targets blamed on Palin when Giffords got shot.

Try telling TSA that you will take a kill shot on one of them if you miss your plane and see what it gets you.

Indeed. Fauci has been the recipient of numerous death threats and has security as a result. At best, then, this is a case of extremely poor word choices. Watters would have to be oblivious and stupid, or abjectly dishonest, to assert otherwise — along with anyone else making such a claim.
