This tactic isn't anything new.
Dr. Phil invited one of the makes of the "Bumfight" series on his show for some reason. Why anyone would want to talk to scum like that I have no idea. Invited him on and the guy comes out dressed like and with a haircut like Dr. Phil and Dr. Phil immediately kicks him off the show without even starting to ask questions.
Happens on cable news networks too. Basically invite someone on to explain their stance and then shot over them until their time is up.

I'm not sure how much control Cooper or Phil actually have in deciding the topics and who will visit their shows, I know I have seen some YouTube videos where Don Lemon (I think) basically laughed in disgust at having to report a specific story. I would imagine they are given a list of topics they can choose from.
Stupid either way. Prime example of why I don't watch TV.
I remember that. Dudes a bad person but when he came out looking like Dr. Phil I had a good laugh.
