Gutfeld: Jon Stewart's View Of Fox News 'Nuttier Than Squirrel Poop'
Greg Gutfeld Friday said comedian Jon Stewart's opinion of Fox News is "nuttier than squirrel poop."
"Stewart's got to stop whining about Fox tilting to the right," declared the "Red Eye" host during his Greg-alogue.
This was in response to what the "Daily Show" host said about FNC during his often heated discussion with Bill O'Reilly Wednesday.
Much of his criticism did not sit well with the outspoken Gutfeld who marvelously concluded, "Fox News only looks right because everything else is left" (video embedded below the fold with partial transcript):
GREG GUTFELD, HOST: I take issue with one thing Stewart said - no, make that everything. He made a big deal about Fox News laying off President Bush while now laying into Obama, which to me is nuttier than squirrel poop. While Bush was President, he was trashed by a left-wing posse who delighted in military defeat for it meant their side was winning. To them, dissent was patriotic even it meant dead troops.
Fox wasn't ignoring Bush's actions. It was reacting to that, what I would call "Patriotic Terrorism." I saw a fully-realized, anti-America lynch mob who would rather win an election than a war, and that made me more of a righty than 9/11, my life at Berkeley, and all my head injuries combined. Want to see proof of my point: ask yourself where is this feverish anti-war movement now that Obama's in power.
Anyway, Stewart's got to stop whining about Fox tilting to the right. The New York Times just ran a piece pointing out the dearth of conservatives in journalism, theatre, therapy, and academia. You've got a Democratic House, a Democratic Senate, a Democrat for President, a liberal media, a left-wing Hollywood, a liberal art and music culture. You've got it all, and you're mad Fox News isn't playing ball? What happened to that whole "Dissent is Patriotic" crap? It seems Fox News only looks right because everything else is left!
Indeed, for as right-leaning as Fox might be at times, it is not even close to how far to the left ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, and PBS are.
Not even close!
