Fox News launched a new show Monday hosted by Greg Gutfeld. The network is hoping that Gutfeld will bring a different twist to a late-night scene bogged down by agenda driven left-leaning hosts who seemingly feed off one another. 

The host sat down with Outkick to discuss his new opportunity, the cancel culture, and what viewers should expect from his new show.

“I’m excited about the one-on-ones,” Gutfeld said. “We are going to get people that are focused on a central, specific topic. There are so many interesting people in the podcast world that I’d like to bring on. I’d love to, actually. What I’m not interested in is bringing in some actor to talk about his new movie – that bores me.”

Gutfeld said that he wants to have “real” conversations with guests that spark intrigue and that people can relate to.

“I want to bring on people who are not on other shows,” he said. “Not the ones making the rounds. I’m going to bring on guests who take risks. We have more slots to take risks now. And we will.” 

The network has been planning the launch of Gutfeld’s show for quite a while. He said he was first approached by Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott who promised him that the show was going to happen. 

“That was the first stage,” said Gutfeld. “I heard about it, talked about it, then waited,” he said. “I had no idea when or if it actually would happen. In reality, I wasn’t sure it was going to happen, but Suzanne said she was pushing for it.” 

Gutfeld said he will use his platform to push back against the cancel culture and not run from it.

“I will say this, everyone has the potential of being canceled,” he said. “I do, you do, we all do. Cancel culture is not about the person getting cancelled – it’s about the type of person doing the canceling. It’s a very small, mobile group of people. You could probably count them, in the United States, 1,000 total, I’d say. But to corporations, they feel much bigger, have much more impact.”

NBC News is putting stock in the digital transformation of its marquee show, “Meet the Press.” by rebranding its separate website for the franchise.

The network’s overhaul of its political newsletter and adding a new blog comes days as they plan to shift the “Meet the Press” show from MSNBC at 1 p.m. to the network’s 24/7 news streaming service NBC News Now at 4 p.m.

“Really where we are putting a lot of our time, attention, and investment is on these other platforms,” Carrie Budoff Brown, senior vice president of “Meet the Press” at NBC News, said to Axios. “This is where we see our growth.”

NBC News will put out its new digital products in June simultaneously with the daily “Meet the Press” streaming show launch on NBC News Now. Furthermore, next month, the franchise will add a new show podcast for the “Meet the Press” daily show, moving over to streaming.

“We’re taking the entrepreneurial, experimental point of view that Chuck has shown for the past seven-eight years and turbo-charging that,” Budoff Brown said.

Joe Scarborough Wants Media to Focus on Losses by Donald Trump-backed Politicians

The morning show host added that “two-thirds of Republicans in Pennsylvania voted against Donald Trump.”

The Providence Journal

MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough wants a bigger spotlight from the media on losses than wins of candidates backed by former President Donald Trump. 

Scarborough’s statement comes as multiple Trump-backed candidates lost in primaries on Tuesday, including Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), Idaho Lt. Gov Janice McGeachin, and candidate for Nebraska governor Charles Herbster, lost.

“Every time a Trump candidate wins, I think the media makes such a huge deal about it,” Scarborough said, per Mediaite. “He picked a crazy governor, gubernatorial candidate, in Pennsylvania, that was on his way to winning anyway, which is why Trump jumped on the bandwagon there.”

The morning show host added that “two-thirds of Republicans in Pennsylvania voted against Donald Trump.”

“So, again, I’m not saying Donald Trump doesn’t have sway in the Republican Party, but I’ll tell you what, it’s nothing like it was in 2020, and I think the media needs to focus more on those massive losses instead of having the headlines about that his endorsement really means something significant,” Scarborough said. “Because I’m not so sure it does this year.”

Dan Abrams Calls NPR’s Mask Report Hotline “Ridiculous”

NPR recently announced a hotline that would allow staffers to report maskless colleagues, leading to the host on “The View” clashing over this issue.

NPR recently announced a hotline that would allow staffers to report maskless colleagues. During a segment on “The View,” the hosts clashed over what the radio station is implementing. 

Co-host Joy Behar kicked off the discussion by stating she would never report a colleague, citing she’s “Italian” and that they “don’t snitch.” However, Sunny Hostin was on the other end, calling the new hotline a good thing. 

“It’s a good thing,” Hostin said, per Mediaite. “We’ve been terrible to each other during this pandemic. So I just think you have this mechanism now where you can just call and snitch and protect yourself as opposed to taking it on yourself.”

Nonetheless, co-host Ana Navarro and guest co-host and Mediaite founder Dan Abrams pushed back at Hostin for her claims. Abrams called the hotline “ridiculous.”

“How do you know it’s not somebody just snitching on somebody they don’t like?” Navarro said. Hostin did push back when pressed by Navarro, saying that it would be up to HR to investigate.  

“We’re at a different point in Covid now,” Abrams added. “We’re not at the point we were two years ago. What if I’m living with someone that’s immunocompromised or my parents and you give it to me and I go home and kill my dad or kill my mom or I kill my husband?”

“It’s not about just following the rules. There are a ton of risks people take every day, right, in going to work, exposing themselves. We’re going to have to live with Covid.”
