Let me answer a question with a question... can't you debate the merits of his points without regard for whether you think he's a "shill" or "right-wing" think-tanker?
What he thinks is irrelevant to his politics. It was a legitimate newsworthy event that shouldn't have been political. If you disagree with his points, debate them, challenge them or ignore them. His perceived political background, which was not mentioned whatsoever (other than an affiliation with a think-tank organization), was not tangent to the discussion.
