Peter Jennings he ain’t, but Public Enemy frontman Chuck D did make his debut May 21 as a Fox News Channel commentator. So EW asked Mr. D for his thoughts on a few current events:

1 TIMOTHY MCVEIGH
”The American public is confused with the growing discontent of militia people. The U.S. must handle this case right, since they messed up in Montana and Waco.”

2 TIGER WOODS’ AMERICAN EXPRESS DEAL
”To think that kids will run out and get American Express cards because of Woods is stupid. However, that’s a lot of money.”

3 MARCIA CLARK’S WITHOUT A DOUBT
”Just another example of how people are stretching their [pre]occupation with O.J. Simpson.”

4 THE KNICKS-HEAT BRAWL ”The NBA made this into a circus. The players were responding to a sense of danger. It was a natural response and they were unfairly penalized.”

5 THE LOST WORLD
”The sequel wasn’t backed by public demand but by prosperity demand.”
