FNC overnighter Greg Gutfield says Barack Obama needs Fox


Greg Gutfeld thinks that President Barack Obama may not be crazy to take on Fox News Channel, where he holds down the 3AM shift. But he also thinks that Obama would be just as crazy to wish the network would go away – Gutfeld says Obama needs FNC.

Blogging at foxnews.com, Gutfeld wrote, “OK, let me get this straight: You’re the President of the United States, with both Houses under your control. You also have the most fawning press of any president in the history of the universe. And yet you let FNC get under your skin, because it’s the only network that doesn’t have a thrill up its leg? Obama is like a sports team who owns the ref, the fans and the field, but refuses to play until the kid in the tenth row stops chewing gum.”

Gutfeld contends that without Fox, Obama would have nobody to criticize but the American people themselves. “In fact, I’d say it would be far worse for Obama if there was no Fox News, because then he’d only have the American people to get mad at. There is no Republican adversary right now, and without Fox News — who’s left? You.”

Gutfed’s program, “Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld” airs weekdays at 3AM eastern.
