Last Tuesday (January 7), it was announced that Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann would settle his lawsuit with the Jeffrey Zucker-led CNN for an undisclosed amount after they tried to ruin his life last year. Luckily for CNN, they’ve all but ignored this on-air (save 29 seconds from Brian Stelter on Reliable Sources) and had help with blackouts from ABC, CBS, MSNBC, and NBC. In contrast, the Fox News Channel spent 12 minutes and 56 seconds on the settlement.
On Fox's The Five on Tuesday, co-host Greg Gutfeld launched into a monologue about how comedians are swearing off performing on college campuses. The latest to walk away is Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson, who "many people" -- to use NBC News argot -- think isn't the least bit hilarious.
In a segment that was mocked by my equal over at Mediaite, the Fox News Channel’s The Five led off Thursday’s installment by brutally mocking the liberal media as “continu[ing] to win the brain dead Olympics” and prove that they’re “not that smart” as evidenced by their ludicrous fact-checking of a Daily Wire meme the President tweeted of himself with the now-famous military service dog Conan.
How many times have we recently seen liberal “journalists” rush to air stories that they desperately hope are true but don’t stand up to scrutiny? The most recent example of this trend came on Tuesday, when MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell could barely contain himself before relying on a single source to accuse President Trump of having improper financial connections with Russia and Vladimir Putin. As you might expect, the hosts of the Fox News Channel’s weekday afternoon program The Five found more than enough things to talk about on Wednesday, when one person on the panel accused the MSNBC host of “Bad Journalism.”
The press hit the lowest of lows (if that wasn’t already surpassed) when they asserted President Trump was responsible for the mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso. They capitalized on the anti-immigrant beliefs held by the El Paso shooter to do so, while evading the leftist ideology of the Dayton killer. On Fox News Tuesday, The Five exposed the stories the liberal media concealed over the weekend in order to further their leftist agenda.
As the Mueller testimony unfolded last Wednesday, the Russian collusion narrative was exposed and shattered to the dismay of the very media who perpetuated it. The deflation on the faces of cable news hosts’ was evident as the day went on. Greg Gutfeld pinpointed this disappointment during his monologue on Friday’s The Five.
If there ever was a shining diamond in the leftist media that person would be Greg Gutfeld. True to form, Gutfeld untangled, on Tuesday night’s episode of The Five, the interchangeable web of the media and the liberal allies by mocking their collective mass hysteria over President Trump’s latest tweets.
The media are often referred to as the symbolic fourth branch of government, however, that does not guarantee it is committed to delivering the truth and the facts to the American people. Essentially, in what will be an obvious observation to most, the media has become an extension of the Democratic Party, filled with liberal pundits and talking heads rather than neutral journalists and unbiased reporters. As a result, the citizens of this country find themselves playing the role of journalist on a daily basis, working to debunk the lies the media has spewed and find the facts by themselves.
On Friday’s The Five, the panel weighed in how the media have reacted to the feud between President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Along with a mash-up of media figures exulting Pelosi accompanied by the chyron “Familiar Phrase: Media Parrots Same Line to Describe Trump-Pelosi Feud,” co-host Greg Gutfeld described the media and the Democrats as “incestuous” and “interchangeable.”
After The New York Times published their story last week about President Trump losing $1 billion in the 80s and 90s, did you feel like you already knew about that? So did everyone else, because Trump’s financial problems during that time were well documented. So, during his late Saturday night show, Fox News Channel host Greg Gutfeld ripped into the Times for trying to drop “a bombshell revealed to millions of people on national TV over a decade and a half ago.”
FNC host Greg Gutfeld made the right move on the rhetorical pool table during Wednesday’s The Five, knocking Brian Stelter as “CNN’s cue ball of concern” after his hissy fit about President Trump skipping Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner (WHCD), which Gutfeld dubbed an “orgy” of “sweat lemmings complimenting their shared opinions.”
Doing the comedy that NBC’s Saturday Night Live largely retired from doing at least a decade ago, Fox News Channel’s Greg Gutfeld offered a tour de force to open his Saturday eponymous show in the form of a monologue against the liberal media “jackasses” “crushed” by the Mueller report’s conclusion that there was no Trump-Russia collusion.
