The hosts of "Fox & Friends" took their revenge against editor Michael Moyer on air Thursday morning for tweeting about his uncomfortable experience on the show. As host Steve Doocy put it, "we put him on, we have a nice conversation and then he stabs us in the back."
The show even aired a photo of Moyer's appearance along with the text "'Scientific' Coward."
But the hosts didn't stop there. They also asked viewers to tweet at Moyer if they didn't like the way he handled his appearance. And browsing through Twitter on late Thursday morning showed Fox viewers had responded en masse.
Some told Moyer to "lighten up" while at least one slammed the editor's "climate psychic hotline style crystal ball doomspeak."
For his part, Moyer told TPM in an email Thursday that he's "not planning to discuss the Fox matter any further."
Here's just a small sampling of the tweets:

@foxandfriends @mmoyr Hey Climate guy, your behavior? Disgraceful. BTW, sometimes a temp shifts 40degrees or more. That's called #winter.

I'm not saying you're stupid; it just concerns me that you get to vote and could end up on a jury as one of my peers @foxandfriends
