"Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld" on the Fox News Channel must be boycotted or taken off the air. Its sexist, misogynist, homophobic, racist, speciesist and self-hating host must be maimed, lynched and/or killed.

If not, someone might be offended. And that cannot happen - especially now that President Obama is poised to make everything really great.

In an era of extreme political correctness, when almost everyone is offended by almost everything, and with self-appointed advocacy groups organized to find offense on behalf of almost everyone - offensively, without the majority in the group's consent - it's nice to know that there's a place to go where everyone can be offended almost all of the time.

Even if it's hidden on the offensive cable news network, according to offensive liberal watchdog David Brock's Media Matters, and shown at an offensive hour - Monday to Friday, 3 a.m. EST.

Two years into its late, late, late-night (or early, early morning - depending on your biological clock) cable news run, "Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld" has solidified itself as television's most reliably absurdist, unpredictable and laugh-provoking news hour.

It's less a comedy competitor to "The Daily Show" - the budget's too low, and Gutfeld isn't a marm at heart - or an insomniac's "The O'Reilly Factor" (Who cares what people who wake after noon think?) than it is a surrealistic "Fernwood 2-Night" (Fred Willard rocks!)

I'm a huge fan of the show. It's about the only thing I've got to get myself pumped up about working mid shifts. I know plenty here have said they're turned off by how "homoerotic" it can get, but Breitbart makes an extremely astounding point towards the end of this.


In the discussion on who can help influence the political right to be more pop-culturally relevant, there are few in the same league as Mr. Gutfeld. But as much as the right wants to reach out to younger voters (and cable news viewers), it is terrified to speak to them in their language like Mr. Gutfeld does.

I hate Red Eye

I watch every Fox News program from Fox and Friends to Your World, to the Glenn Beck show, Hannity,Huckabee, and the O Reilly Factor, I even watch their 'legitimate news' shows but I cannot stand to watch Red Eye.

It's not because it's homophobic or misogynistic or racist or whatever else they are calling the show. It's because the hosts of the show actually believe they are being "edgy" and "dangerous" and by "going there" they are being "funny". It's like that kid in 8th grade who still thinks making fart noises with his mouth is the pinnicle of comedy and anyone who doesn't laugh is just stuck up.

It's pathetic.

Count me as a fan of Red Eye. It's one of the few shows that I and some of my liberal friends enjoy TOGETHER, and some have even found their inner conservative and their love of Guatemalan houseboys with Greg's dulcet tones. . .and by tones, I mean in appropriate caresses (no, really, he's into frotteurism , he felt me up on the train).

and Jerry Springer has better ratings than any C-Span programming. ratings typically win out by appealing to the lowest common denominator.

The Jerry Springer Show just has more credibility than the subject matter followed by C-Span. If you are gonna watch whores, it might as well be entertaining, right?
