‘Simpering Fandom’

Home - by - January 5, 2013 - 20:00 America/New_York - 7 Comments


On Friday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The Five,” co-host Greg Gutfeld took on the recently controversial issue regarding Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s health in the wake of last September’s terrorist attack at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, saying that the media has traded in skepticism over Clinton’s medical condition for “simpering fandom.”

“So Hillary Clinton’s back and ready to go,” Gutfeld said. “Good. I hope for her sake, her family’s sake, our government’s sake that she recovers fully — especially given the shroud of mystery over all things Benghazi because it’s really about that secrecy and the media contorting itself in every way to let it happen. So why is it shameful to wonder what’s wrong with the head of our State Department when she suddenly vanishes in the wake of her department’s biggest scandal? And why is everything related to Benghazi a soup of secrecy? And what about the journalists ginning up fake hatred or outrage toward skeptics? We could do the same to those who mocked our relentless coverage of Benghazi where four Americans died, or those who rift on Trig Palin’s origins. I mean, Andrew Sullivan condemning skeptics of a concussion? What a woodland ghoul.”

Gutfeld then compared questions being raised of Clinton’s health to way former Vice President Dick Cheney had been treated over his health problems, as well as the backlash any conservative media figure faces when they take on a liberal institution or figure.

  2. Another thing liberals do

    Did you ever notice:
    When a liberal is on a talk show.
    They are interviewed.
    When someone on the right is on a talk show.
    They are interrogated.
    Always pisses me off.

    I saw this yesterday. Gutfeld is great.
    He fearlessly cuts through the crap and tells it like it is.
    Not surprisingly, he was a good friend of Breitbart.

    one other good thing about Faux news is Millertime. imo there is no other wordsmith like Dennis Miller but Guttfeld is a close second, no doubt about it.

    Gutfield and Bolling are the best of that bunch. Tantaros isn’t bad either, but the others are weak sisters, and Mr. Suspenders’ stupidity is exceeded only by fill in Whuan Whilliams.

    The Five — ust a poor, limp, flaccid superficial piss-poor replacement for Beck who was the only truth to power-teller on that entire sorry channel.

    Fair and Balanced indeed. Bah.

    Gutfeld can be incisive … when he’s not bonerized over Dana Perino.
