Greg Gutfeld

Greg Gutfeld has been called “outrageous and outspoken,” neither of which he denies. A libertarian political satirist, humorist, magazine editor and blogger, he is perhaps best known as the host of the Fox News Channel program “Red Eye With Greg Gutfeld.” Airing at 3 a.m. ET Tuesday through Saturday, the show covers a variety of topics, including news, entertainment, sports, and gossip. Gutfeld is also a host of FNC’s “The Five,” a weekday program at 5 p.m. ET.

The Weekly Standard calls him “the most dangerous man on television.” According to the magazine, unlike other media darlings, “Gutfeld’s stuff actually is subversive, a stink bomb hurled into every faculty lounge, mainstream newsroom, movie studio, and nonprofit boardroom in America.”

Prior to joining Fox, Gutfeld was a staff writer at Prevention and editor-in-chief of Men’s Health magazine. He later became editor-in-chief of Stuff, where he increased circulation from 750,000 to 1.2 million and created controversy month after month. He helmed Maxim magazine in the U.K., and was a contributor to the Huffington Post, where he became legendary for his “inspired, lunatic ridicule of his leftwing fellow Huffers.” He’s been published in countless magazines, has appeared in too many profiles to mention, and was only fingerprinted once.

He currently blogs on his own site, The Daily Gut, as well as Big Hollywood.com, where he writes about the news and pop culture of the day, from a conservative libertarian humorous slant. He’s appeared on dozens of TV shows, as a regular on “The O’Reilly Factor,” while also stopping by on Dennis Miller’s radio show and spots on “Opie and Anthony.”

He is the author of four books, among them, “The Bible of Unspeakable Truths,” which garnered praise and pithy quotes from the likes of Dennis Miller, Mike Huckabee, Ann Coulter and Andrew Breitbart, founder of BigGovernment.com and Breitbart.com, who said: “Trust me, you don’t want him setting his sights on your hypocrisy and public failings.” Consider yourself warned.

Gut Check: Save the Lectures

In the interest of time (I’m nearly a half century old and have fewer years ahead than I’ve already swallowed up), I do my best to avoid black holes: what I call “time-suck” stories that are so murky and slippery you can’t make heads or tails of them. These stories are often most attractive precisely because their messiness lets you make them into anything you want. Apr 30, 2014 2:23 PM PT

How to Watch the Oscars in Four Simple Steps

Turn it on, and do something else. Do the laundry, clean the apartment, write really bad poetry, watch another show on a competing laptop. The point: if watching the Oscars is the only activity performed while watching the Oscars, I will hunt you down and spray paint R.I.P. on your forehead. Mar 2, 2014 12:48 PM PT

Gut Check: Penn & Teller's Finishing School

I never get around to seeing movies because I rarely get around to doing anything. This is an important point--as a man with no hobbies and a knack for leaving things unfinished--it's a big deal for me to finally catch Penn & Teller's documentary, Tim's Vermeer. Feb 24, 2014 2:14 PM PT

Gut Check: Why I Hate Stories

I came to a conclusion about stories. They are truth remixed, and remixed again, until what is left is a seamless dance-floor-filling thumper. A story is a corralled collection of moments that gets the crowd moving in a particular direction. Feb 18, 2014 12:42 PM PT

Gut Check: Speculating on Spectacles

What bugged me about “nipplegate” is that it reflected a world moving in a direction away from quality entertainment, to spectacle as entertainment. I get that “show” is part of “show business,” but we’ve moved into new territory, where “show” becomes “show-off.” I read somewhere once that spices were invented to mask the taste of meat gone bad. I get the feeling our entertainment is now becoming spice masking spoilage, nonstop. Feb 5, 2014 1:25 PM PT

Downton Abbey Is a Real Man's Super Bowl

Everyone has their own Super Bowl, and mine is the conclusion of Downton Abbey, season 4. I watched all the episodes this week, finishing today. Feb 2, 2014 8:52 AM PT

Gut Check: When Old Friends Return

Maybe, when you were younger and dumber, you had some questionable friends. They dabbled in illegality. They weren’t dependable. They often needed you to bail them out of trouble. They stole stuff…sometimes your stuff. They never paid for gas, and when they did, it’s because they borrowed your car without telling you and ran it into a tree. Jan 15, 2014 2:06 PM PT

Gut Check: Greg's Favorite Songs and Records from 2013

I didn’t get around to listening to nearly as much crud as I normally do, because all I do these days is work. I do two shows a day and write books at night. I have no leisure time. Nothing. I eat takeout and sleep in gym clothes. My vacation time is spent with relatives, convincing them I’m still alive. Yes, this is a cry for help. Dec 27, 2013 7:39 AM PT

Gut Check: Lessons in Lockstep

Last week, Nelson Mandela died. There were more than enough touching eulogies, and any attempt by me would be shoddy, with the depth of a contact lens. Better to sit back, shut up, and think about a lesson to learn from this great man’s life. Dec 12, 2013 11:10 AM PT
