It wasn’t too long ago — less than a year, in fact — that conservatives were furious with ABC for cancelling the Tim Allen sitcom Last Man Standing because (in the opinion of its star and many right-leaning viewers) the show’s protagonist was conservative. But now, ABC is back in the good graces of many on the right thanks the Roseanne reboot — which debuted to a robust 18.2 million viewers Tuesday night. On Wednesday, the cast of The Five — namely Greg Gutfeld — took a victory lap, claiming the show was a success because it portrayed a Donald Trump supporter with nuance. “Sorry, Stormy [Daniels],” Gutfeld crowed. “This other Trump woman trounced your interview in the key [ratings] demo. I watched the show. It was messy and raw. But it was also funny, meaning it was human. Each character was likable but flawed. The anti-Trumper was irrational. The pro-Trumper was sloganeering. And here’s a first: Hillary [Clinton] was … [Read more...] about Fox News’ The Five Gushes Over Roseanne Debut, Huge Ratings: ‘Sorry, Stormy’
Fox News’s The Five discussed President Donald Trump’s decision to promote Gina Haspel to CIA director despite her thorny past with torture, and things got heated over what constitutes real torture. “I don’t think it’s very American to torture people and neither does John McCain who was tortured,” Juan Williams said. “Waterboarding is not torture,” Jesse Watters replied. “We’ve waterboarded correspondents here.” “I don’t think that’s rational or sane,” an incredulous Williams shot back. “What is your alternative?” Greg Gutfeld asked. “There are lots of alternatives,” Williams replied. “Talk to the intelligence community, they will tell you they get more out of people when they don’t torture them.” “Some of these guys are real losers and real wimps,” Kimberly Guilfoyle chimed in. “They are crybabies. You put a caterpillar on their shoulder … [Read more...] about Watch The Hosts of Fox News’ The Five Dismiss Waterboarding, Call Torture Victims ‘Wimps’ and ‘Crybabies’
With Gina Haspel’s selection to be the Central Intelligence Agency’s next director, Fox News’ The Five praised the President Donald Trump’s pick for her history of overseeing a secret torture site in Thailand, despite critics accusing her of being “quite literally a war criminal.” After CIA Director Mike Pompeo was announced as Rex Tillerson‘s replacement today, Haspel was tapped for the agency’s top spot — which led to many calling-out her history of overseeing the torture of terrorist suspects and destroying interrogation evidence. But no such call-outs were heard over at The Five. Jesse Watters led the segment pick by saying, “I love this woman.” Watters — who once famously appeared to make an on-air oral sex joke about Ivanka Trump — continued his commentary by voicing his support for women, as the choice of Haspel is “a real historic moment” … [Read more...] about The Five Praises Trump CIA Director Pick Who Oversaw Torture: ‘She’s A Hero’ Who ‘Saves Lives’
In response to Sam Nunberg dominating cable news coverage yesterday — with his bizarre comments, requests for legal advice, and possibly drunken segments — hosts of The Five accused their media rivals of exploiting the former Donald Trump campaign aide for ratings. With Nunberg, who appeared in half-dozen interviews on Monday, appearing flustered, intoxicated, and under a great deal of stress during his TV appearances, Fox News host Greg Gutfeld questioned the ethics of putting the man on television. “If you smelled the booze on his breath, why did you have him on?” Asked Gutfeld — specifically knocking CNN’s Erin Burnett who told Nunberg she could smell “alcohol” while on the air. Additionally, Gutfeld tried to downplay the newsworthiness of the interviews by referring to Nunberg as a “low-level former Trump aide” and said the following in a spirited anti-media monologue: “MSNBC called this … [Read more...] about The Five Slams Rival Networks for Nunberg Interviews: ‘If You Smelled the Booze’ Why Have Him On?
After nearly one and a half decades, Peter Jackson’s cinematic adventure in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth is coming to an end – and it’s doing so in rather epic fashion.
