Led by co-host Greg Gutfeld, three co-hosts on FNC’s The Five lit into Bloomingdale’s during Tuesday’s show for their nonsensical kowtowing to angry journalists by pulling a novelty t-shirt (found by a WPIX-TV reporter Allison Kaden) on a mannequin that read “Fake News.”
During Wednesday’s edition of The Five, co-host Greg Gutfeld delivered a monologue addressing freshman Utah Senator Mitt Romney’s op-ed offering scathing criticism of President Trump’s character; while offering tepid praise of some of his accomplishments.. Gutfeld also referenced the media’s complete 180 on their treatment of Romney, comparing their adoring praise of him now to their coverage of him back in 2012 when he was at the top of the Republican ticket in the 2012 Presidential Election.
Politico Magazine published an article on Tuesday on how to defeat President Donald Trump in 2020 with an idea so goofy that you have to wonder if the author, #NeverTrump Juleanna Glover, is secretly working for his re-election. Basically her idea, which was instantly mocked by Politico readers, is that Joe Biden and Mitt Romney form a third party, or "trans-party" as the author put it, in 2020 to run against both Trump and the Democrat presidential nominee.
During Wednesday’s edition of The Five, co-host Greg Gutfeld delivered a monologue highlighting the hypocrisy of the media for slamming President Trump when he goes after media outlets but looking the other way when New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio criticized Fox News during a recent interview with The Guardian.
On Wednesday's edition of The Five on Fox news, Juan Williams passed off Peter Fonda's overtly threatening tweet wishing that 12-year-old Barron Trump should "be put in a cage with pedophiles" as "poorly worded." He also claimed that his fellow hosts were "taking delight" in the appearance of Fonda's series of threatening tweets, because talking about them "takes away from the conversation focusing on what President Trump did."
Thursday, CNN's Brian Stelter theorized, both on the air and in a tweet, that the Trump administration timed its announcement of National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster's departure, and the appointment of former UN ambassador John Bolton as his replacement, to distract from his network's upcoming interview of Karen McDougal, the former Playboy model who claims to have had an affair with Donald Trump over a decade ago. And they wonder why their ratings and their credibility continue to circle the drain.
Comedy Central’s lame replacement for the Colbert Report, The Opposition with Jordan Klepper, is even worse than Colbert at disguising their liberal agitprop as hiding behind a mask of idiotic conservatism. On Tuesday night, Klepper brought on his cast mates Josh Sharp and Aaron Jackson, pitched on screen as "Authors of F**k the Poor: A Conservative Guide to Comedy.”
On Wednesday and Thursday nights, FNC’s The Five co-host Greg Gutfeld offered moving commentaries about how the liberal media’s attempts to indict the American people as perpetually divided have utterly failed as exhibited by the Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts. Gutfeld also discussed how Harvey has shown that the basic safety of each and every person in the face of death is what matters and not petty debates like replacing Columbus Day and taking down Confederate Statues.
NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham appeared on the final edition of Fox News’s The Factor, Friday, to slam journalists as being in a “festival of hate” during Donald Trump’s first few months. Talking to guest host Greg Gutfeld, he quipped of first 100 days: “It’s an artificial measuring stick and as usual we can expect the media to take that stick and beat Trump over the head with it.”
In just over the last 24 hours, the Media Research Center fetched two mentions on both CNN and the Fox News Channel (FNC) with the latter network devoting a segment to a study by MRC Culture’s Katie Yoder comparing network coverage of the Cincinnati gorilla shooting versus the latest violence in Chicago.
In a break from the more traditional post-debate analysis routine, the Fox News Channel chose to award the cast of The Five its sole post-Democratic debate hour on Thursday and, of course, it featured humorous quips from co-host Greg Gutfeld. The quirky Gutfeld opined that, among many spit takes throughout the hour, the debate was more along the lines of a “wild kingdom” instead of “a country bear jamboree” in which “Hillary didn’t just take off her gloves” but “wanted to take off [Bernie Sanders’s] head.”
“Words matter,” Fox Business Network anchor Neil Cavuto said during a “Common Sense” segment in which the managing editor of business news for the channel criticized Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump for accusing fellow candidate and Texas Senator Ted Cruz of being “worse than a puppet” and “a Trojan horse” for the GOP establishment.
When Cavuto stated “comments like that … risk making you look more like a horse's ass,” he was taking part in an ongoing controversy among the people of the Fox News Channel regarding how to treat Trump during coverage of the 2016 presidential election.
